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

*Pokémon Contests --Jshadias 19:12, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

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


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)

Pokéblocks in Generation VI

With ORAS released, this should be updated to include info on Pokeblocks in Generation VI, since at the time of writing this, it focuses exclusively on Generation III's Pokéblocks. Superjustinbros. (talk) 17:22, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. And maybe there should be an article on the Pokéblock kit as well. It sounds like something usable on the go while alone. (I don't have OR/AS, but I plan on getting it.) Splus13 (talk) 16:21, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
I agree, since the Pokéblock kit is as much different thing compared to how you made Pokèblocks before with the Berry Blender. Superjustinbros. (talk) 18:50, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Do you think I should at least create the article? I can't contribute directly to it, but I can at least start it. How do you mark something as a stub? Splus13 (talk) 18:57, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Sure, you can go ahead. To mark something as a stub just put "stub" at the end of the article before the inbox templates and close it with double brackets. The current Pokéblocks article detailing colors should be revamped once we get sprites for the new Pokéblocks since the only colors that appear are Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink, Rainbow, and "+" versions of those colors. Superjustinbros. (talk) 19:03, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I feel like we need to research and test the values of pokeblock vs pokeblock+ in comparison to appeal points during the talent round. This would give us amore quantitative grasp on pokeblocks. PlatypusVenom (talk) 17:02, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

ORAS Pokeblock uncertainties

We've gotten some confirmation that base values, at least, for Pokeblock increases in ORAS are 8/16 for regular/+ Pokeblocks. But given inconsistencies that a few people have experienced, some more experimentation and verification would absolutely be in order.

Notes from a couple users:


Notes from Arima: Latios with Docile Nature and Level 5 Affection was given 32 Yellow Pokéblocks to max out Toughness but was given 37 Blue Pokéblocks to Max out Beauty. (255/32 = 7.96875) (255/37 = 6.89189)

Absol with Adamant Nature and Level 5 Affection was given 22 Red Pokeblocks to max out Coolness. (255/22 = 11.59090)

Lugia with Quirky Nature and Level 5 Affection was given 22 Green Pokeblocks to max out Cleverness. (255/22 = 11.59090)


I recently experimented with this using PKHex to get the exact values each Pokéblock increased the stats. Regulars give 8 and pluses give 16. At level 0-1 affection they give 0 extra. At 2-3 they give 1 extra. At 3-4 they give 2 extra. Level 5 gives 4 extra regardless of whether it is plus or standard. Maxing out stats doesn't give accurate data because there are leftover points. Also natures do not seem to matter as the Pokémon I experimented on were all of different natures. I have no explanation of what happened to the above trials that resulted in different numbers of Pokéblocks to max each stat.

Assiassin (talk) 03:03, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Myself, I did some experiments with regular Rainbow Pokeblocks where I needed 69/69/53/53/43/34 Pokeblocks to reach max stats (for lv 0-5 affection on different Pokemon: Modest/Bold/Relaxed/Relaxed/Rash/Relaxed). (Which differs greatly from the supposed 8 Assiassin saw.)

It'd be nice, if someone has a Pokemon that doesn't seem to fit into 8/16, if they could find someone to check the raw data values (if you haven't saved at max). Someplace like /r/PokemonPlaza might be helpful for that. But otherwise, if you can figure a cohesive theory (and it might be staring me right in the face above, I just haven't really tried) and multiple people can confirm that the theory works in their experience, it might be alright to just edit it in without any direct confirmation.

Tiddlywinks (talk) 02:52, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Yeah if anyone finds anything funky with their numbers message me and we can set up a trade so I can look at the numbers to see what's up. Try not to max the stats as it makes getting accurate numbers harder.
