{{incomplete|section|Quotes from Generation IV}}
Bill is a talented and famous inventor, who invented the original Pokémon Storage System and [[Time Capsule]]. People, including himself, call him a PokéManiac because of his large collection of both common and rare Pokémon. The first one he caught was an {{p|Abra}}; however, his favorite Pokémon are {{p|Eevee}} and its [[Eeveelution|evolutions]]. Bill also gives a free Eevee to {{ga|Ethan}}, {{ga|Kris}}{{sup/2|C}}, or {{ga|Lyra}}{{sup/4|HGSS}} in [[Generation II]] and its remakes, and another one to [[Bebe]] in [[Generation IV]], which is later given to {{ga|Lucas}}/{{ga|Dawn}}.
 
Bill has been shown to have a large family. His adult sister and grandfather live in [[Fuchsia City]]. In Generation II, his grandfather watches over Bill's cottage on Route 25 while he is visiting the rest of his family in Goldenrod City.
 
In the Japanese versions of the games, Bill speaks in {{wp|Kansai region|Kansai}} dialect, like most Goldenrod City natives.
 
===[[Generation I]]===
In {{game2|Red|Blue|Yellow}}, Bill can be found at the [[Sea Cottage]] on the [[Kanto Route 25|Cerulean Cape]], initially performing an experiment on Pokémon teleportation. However, Bill accidentally becomes combined with the body of a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and requires the player's help to fix the problem. In Pokémon Yellow, {{ga|Red's Pikachu|the player's Pikachu}} [[Walking Pokémon#Pokémon Yellow|will be confused]] by the whole ordeal, and shocked upon seeing Bill return to his original form. After things are back in order, he speaks about his Pokémon Storage System and what was formerly on the PC menu as "Someone's PC" will change to "Bill's PC." He will also give away an {{key|I|[[S.S. Ticket}}]] so that the player can board the [[S.S. Anne]]. He gives the player the ticket as a gift for changing him back into a human, and also claims that the rich crowd of the S.S. Anne isn't his type. If the player exits Bill's house and goes back in, they can check his computer for information on {{p|Eevee}} and its three [[Evolutionary stone|stone]] evolutions, his favorite Pokémon.

*After helping him
:''"{{tt|Yeehah! Thanks, bud! I owe you one! So, did you come to see my <sc>Pok</sc>é<sc>mon</sc> collection? You didn't? That's a bummer. I've got to thank you...

*After returning to his house
:''"Look, bud, just check out some of my rare <sc>Pok</sc>é<sc>mon</sc> on my PC!"''
 
===[[Generation II]]===
In {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, Bill is visiting his family in [[Goldenrod City]]. After he gets the [[Time Capsule]] up and running in [[Ecruteak City]], players can visit him at his parents' house in Goldenrod and receive an {{p|Eevee}}. His sister will give the player Bill's number so they can check the storage system.

While visiting [[Lanette]] in {{Pokémon/2game3|Ruby and Sapphire|Ruby, Sapphire|s}}, {{v2|Emerald}}, {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire|Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire}}, players can check one of her computers to find an E-mail from Bill. The English translation of the e-mail in [[Generation III]] makes it seem as if Bill is crediting Lanette for upgrading his system, whereas the Japanese text and the English text in [[Generation VI]] clearly establishes that he and Lanette are co-developers of the original system.
