    Tried it, still isn't letting me.

    The one it let you, you had previously uploaded as a separate file which got merged into the existing one by @Maverick Nate; Because you uploaded it, it lets you replace it with a new image (called reuploading by the software). Because you didn't upload the Zebstrika card image, the software won't let you replace it until you become autoconfirmed. This requires a few uploads and a short time delay, and is to prevent spammers or vandals from replacing existing images with something inappropriate.

    Movie DVDs
    File:M?? DVD JP.png
    File:M?? DVD US.png
    File:M?? DVD AUS.png

    Movie Posters
    File:M?? teaser poster.png
    File:M?? poster JP.png
    File:M?? poster EN.png
    File:M?? poster KOR.png
    File:M?? poster CHI.png

    Movie Logos
    File:M?? teaser logo.png
    File:M?? logo JP.png
    File:M?? logo EN.png

    Pikachu the Movie Posters and the Pikachu the Movie movie logos
    File:Pikachu the Movie ?? poster.png
    File:Pikachu the Movie M??.png

    Even the characters could do with a rearrangement. But obviously it would be a big task. Changing links, plus the fact that some of the files are on Bulbanews protected articles. Maybe it's just my OCD but I do think it should be done. While it's up to whoever if they wanted to do it, it would probably be easier to do it before X and Y are released, since there will be lots to do after.
    I've noticed this too, and I think fixing the titles of the movie posters and logos would be a good idea. However, I would also suggest adding EN/JP/etc. to the end of the teaser posters/titles as well (although they will probably only be Japanese).

    The only other one that would be difficult to do would be M14 due to being two movies.

    Are there any tutorials on how to remove the watermarks from anime screencaps? I'd be happy to upload some if I knew how to get past this problem.

    Watermarks are designed to be difficult to remove. Typically you just take the screenshot again.

    Reposting from another thread:

    I see. I'll go ahead and put Barry on those pages. If there are any others, please list them.
    So I don't think any of the Gen IV or V back sprites have the {{animated}} template (except for the D/P Duskull I just did), so that's 1142 image files (1-473 in Gen IV and 1-649 in Gen V) I don't plan to tackle.
    As for front sprites, not too many are animated png's. That's another 1142 image files needing review.

    So I just did the two you requested, Gen IV Duskull back and Gen V Duskull front.
    Does this page needs to be update with those information? Which site does we get the 5th gen sprites, Pokecheck or Armaina? Can a bot convert all the animated sprites from GIF format to PNG format and replace all the unanimated sprites?

    List of things need to be added:

    - animated Gen 3 backsprites and shiny?
    - animated Gen 4 backsprites and shiny
    - animated Gen 5 frontsprites, backsprites and shiny (Have a difference between BW and BW2)

    On this page, the french name of this Ampharos is missing : Amphy - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    In french, it is named "Phary", from its french name "Pharamp" or "Phare", meaning lighthouse.
    I support : BiologyShipping, GodzillaShipping, GreatRocketShipping, RebelShipping, TransceiverShipping, Fox X Krystal, Leon S. Kennedy X Ada Wong, Leon X Lucy Liberty, FalSam, LGMShipping and Escavalier x Lilligant. This signature image is the perfect place to name all the ships I support without wasting space on the signature, mwa ha ha !

    It was added. Thank you! One thing, this suggestion should have been posted in this thread.

    Are there any plans to use the Gen I and Gen II menu sprites? I found a series of Japanese blogs that detail which Pokémon correspond to each menu sprite.

    つれづれな日 手持ちアイコン調査 初代編
    つれづれな日 手持ちアイコン調査 金銀クリスタル編 -前-
    つれづれな日 手持ちアイコン調査 金銀クリスタル編 -後-

    If we can confirm the accuracy of these blogs, we could possibly revamp the menu sprites to resemble a format similar to the footprint sprites.

    So...
    1)Silcoon and Dustox don't have a notifier when they are available in Bug-Catching Contest in their own pages(it's Thursday). They also state their encounter rate is unknown even though it is present in the Bug-Catching Contest page.
    2)The total encounter rate in Route 222 for Pearl is %120. This error was also present on Serebii but it is fixed now.
    3)A lot of movesets need to be checked for errors and some of the forgotten moves from the TCG, manga and animé they can't learn legally. One of these on my head is Mr. Mime having Dig in its Gen III learnset(though I haven't checked it myself in a cartridge, it is not mentioned in other websites' dexes and the Dig's own page) and Trapinch using Bind in EX Dragon 79 not being mentioned by the TCG errors or the Trapinch's page.
    4)Azumarill's page states that it can be found in both rustling grass and rippling water in Abundant Shrine. This is only true for White 2 according to Abundant Shrine's page, as Audino has an increased encounter rate in Black 2 instead.
    5)A lot of Pokémon that appear through phenomenons have very inconsistent mentions in their game locations. Some just say they are rare and some say they can be found in rippling water without mentioning it is through surfing or fishing and so on.
    6)A lot of Pokémon that can learn Defog don't have DPPt notifier in their Gen IV learnsets, such as Fearow.
    7)It seems that there are inaccuracies in the Dual-slot page, for example in Route 205 it states that Seedot appears in Platinum instead of Lotad in Diamond/Pearl, but Lotad is mentioned for Route 205 for all of the D/P/Pt and Seedot is mentioned for neither.
    8)Though version exclusives page mention wild exclusives for B/W/B2/W2, the other games' wild exclusives such as Banette/Dusclops are not noted for.
    9)Matutinal, nocturnal and diurnal Pokémon pages are already described as stubs, but they really need a major cleanup, especially a distinction between Pokémon that are only active in a specific time of day and the ones that are also active in another time of day, as oppossed to having this confusing set-up that features Pokémon that are active in one time only and the ones that are active in two different periods in the same section.
    10)Metronome's page states that Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff can learn Metronome even though other websites dexes and their own page state the opposite, but again I haven't checked this in the games.
    11)Hidden grotto page and routes that contain them just use Rare, Uncommon etc. instead of proper percantages. Event-only encounters such as the Eeveelutions and the new pack of Pokémon that contain Dragonair, Magneton etc. are not noted for either. Is there a specific reason why this is the case?
    12)List of Pokémon with unique type combinations don't have options to order the list according to dex number, types etc. It is completely static.
