Salamence's Name Origin

I found out that there are several cities by the name of Salamanca, incase this has to do with his name. Battle of Salamanca is an example of the several cities named Salamanca with history, and I don't believe that much in the "menace" part of its name. So could this city be what Salamence is actually named after? EmS 02:18, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Why would a Bohmander be named after a city? Salamanca doesn't have anything to do with dragons... hfc2X 06:00, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Well the other languages' names for Bohmander don't have anything to do with Salamanca it seems, and unless a Salamanca city has some dragon history, I might be incorrect. But isn't odd how the English name is close to the city? EmS 01:07, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

As for its German name, Brutalanda, I would like to add that it probably comes from "brutal" and "Salamander" (the final -er tends to get pronounced similarly to -a in sloppy speech). Eevee-Girl 16:38, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Most Popular?

I'm finding little credibility in the fansite GTS Plus naming Salamence the most popular Pokemon. It doesn't say on what basis or how it was determined. I'll leave this post up for a while to let others voice before I remove it. Randomspot555 17:42, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Just something i noticed.

The template that tells the next and previous pokemon, it does not match with it's 2 pre evolutions.--Midnight Blue 23:58, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

That's because it's part Flying, whereas Bagon and Shelgon are not.-- Iron ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 00:00, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Oh, that's why, I forgot it's flying, alright thanx.--Midnight Blue 03:15, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Here's a question: if Salamence is such a vicious pokemon, then why is it only 1.5m tall?--Fimbulwinter2012 03:59, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Scary things come in small packages? I dunno; the number's accurate. Write to Game Freak or something. —darklordtrom 07:19, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

So is J's Salamence considered a giant pokemon? Or is this just anime physics? Fimbulwinter2012 02:26, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm guessing it's because it's so squat. 1.5m can still be terrifying if it's still wider/longer than that.

Trade in SS

I don't think that the unic way to have an Salamance in SoulSilver is by trade; there we can find Shelgon in the Safari Zone and it's not necessary to trade in order for it to evolve into Salamance. I think that there is a mistake...

Sorry, that's the default setting when no one puts the correct value in. I've fixed it. If you see any more that are wrong, you can change them yourself :) —darklordtrom 12:20, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
