This is a contest description, not a description of PokéBlocks alone. So unless anyone has any objections, I'm going to reformat this article to be specifically about PokéBlocks (contests will obviously be detailed on the Contests or Contest categories page. - evkl

Since no one else had done anything here for several months, I went ahead and wrote the whole thing to put the emphasis on Pokéblocks rather than contests. I hope that's good with everyone. -- Slim

Name

Pokéblock or PokéBlock. We've got a whole mess of pages that start with "Poké", and none of them doesn't have a capital letter after that é except Pokémon, Pokétch, or this page. PokéGear and PokéNav both do CamelCase... should this? TTEchidna 23:32, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

I think it should, in the games they are all typed as "POKéBLOCK", "POKéGEAR", and "POKéNAV", so this should be PokéBlock.

No, it should be left as is. The title card for AG039 reads "A Pokéblock Party!" (the fact that the episode has little to do with Pokéblocks aside) and the title card for AG090 reads "Pokéblock, Stock, and Berry!". If it really were intended for it to be typed out as "PokéBlock", those title cards would have done it. Besides, the reason the lowercase "é" is used is because there's no uppercase "É" (Alt-144 or Alt-0201 on Windows) character programmed into the Pokémon games. Who's to say the TCG didn't mess up on the gear and nav? --Shiningpikablu252 22:51, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Pokéblock Recipes for perfect Contest Stats

There are recipes for Pokéblocks which max out all your Pokémon's contest stats. Should these be added to this page? Somewhere else? Or is that the wrong kind of information for Bulbapedia? Peterpansexuell (talk) 11:50, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

The table

It's missing some of the Berries (like Starf Berry), and I don't got the whole "grade" thing. Where we got that from? Eridanus (talk) 11:26, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

The 'grade' seems to simply be the Pokéblock’s level it will have when you get a maximum speed of 100 rpm while blending. A Pokéblock’s level is just the value of whichever value it will boost the strongest. So if you have a Pokéblock that adds 32 to Beauty and 16 to Toughness for example, the Pokéblock’s level would be 32. It’s not hard to calculate the values of the missing berries and add them; I might find time to do that one day in the not-so-far-away future. Peterpansexuell (talk) 22:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Eridanus was referring to this table. After seeing his comment, I went and looked up the information that's on the page (and reflected in the tables) now.
If you ever want to add the full flavor/stat details, you should probably just change the table to have three columns under each "# NPCs" header, something like "Flavor 1/2/3" and just list the flavors (like "Bitter 12", "Sweet 6", "—") in decreasing order (if any of those do end up with single-digit values, it'll screw with the sorting, though...). The color is only "important" to indicate the strongest flavor, so if you're already explicitly showing that you won't need it. If I had put more thought into it when I was updating the page, I might have just done that in the first place. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:33, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
