hmmm. is it Ok if I get a better picture because you can't really see Denchura in the current one because of the ingame text. From my view it looks like a blue spider with yellow legs and a white star like shape on it's bottom according to other pics. --User:XD00153 (talk) 23:17, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

So, "Dentula" or not?

Or are we just going with the Romaji until an official romanization comes out? Ztobor 02:04, 13 September 2010 (UTC)


It was recently realized that Denchura backwards, aruhcned, is pronounced pretty much identical to "Arachnid", which is what Denchura is: A spider. I was wondering if this should be mentioned in trivia or even name origin? Myzou 11:03, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Probably not. There's quite a few noticeable differences in spelling, and besides, since we're working with the Japanese name, it would be something like "rayuchinde" backwards, which doesn't make sense at all. --AndyPKMN 11:18, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Actually, that's pretty interesting. I think it should go in the trivia.--Pokélova! 17:52, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, it could be mentioned something like "If read in English, etc." Or something similar. It wouldn't have to be a general comment. Myzou 00:54, 2 October 2010 (UTC)


The card included with its clipping figure refers to it as such: [1] RacieB 21:09, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Name Origin

I'm pretty sure Galvantula came from galvanism which involves electrical currents rather than galvanization which is applying a coating of metal for something not to rust. I should know, my last name's Galvani. Toadstool 16:14, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
