A bit of trivia to be added...

I've read the Poison article, and it lists Salandit as the only primary Poison-type Pokémon that is also a Fire-type. No other Pokémon shares its type combination. LDEJRuff (talk) 15:11, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

We can't be sure that no other Pokémon will share this typing with it, I suppose it is better to wait until types of all Alola Pokémon are known. Kikugi (talk) 15:22, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Something for the name origin section

"Salandit" is a combination of "salamander" and "bandit", due to looking as if it's wearing a mask.Pokencyclopedia (talk) 17:26, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

... It's... it's already in the name origin...--ForceFire 17:38, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I must've missed that. ^^'--Pokencyclopedia (talk) 21:45, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Mythological Salamander

Salamanders in mythology tend to be associated with fire and/or volcanoes. The Talmud says that the salamander is a product of fire. Pliny the Elder of Rome also attributed salamanders with poisonous properties.

As a side note, as a part of my research, I found that Muhammad said that salamanders are "mischief-doers" (direct quote from wikipedia).

I am not going to post all of the information here, but people should look up Salamanders in folklore and legend on Wikipedia. Srushj11 (talk) 17:56, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

The only Pokemon with three 1/4 resistances?

Is Salandit the only Pokemon with three 1/4x resistances? Those are to Fairy, Grass, and Bug. BNKTalk 19:15, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Heatran has two more. glikglak 21:12, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
He didn't ask if Salandit has the most 1/4 resistances, only if Salandit is the only Pokémon with three, so Heatran having five has nothing to do with it. However: 1. we don't know Generation VII type chart 2. we don't know if there are other Generation VII Pokémon with three 1/4 resistances 3. even if it turned out to be the only one, I don't think it would be notable.--Den Zen 21:42, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
I really don't think "This Pokemon is the only one with [X] [whatever fraction] resistances/weaknesses" is notable. (That's just really picky; an utterly pointless distinction.) It should only be notable if the Pokemon has the most. Hence, Heatran; Salandit wouldn't be the most, so it shouldn't be notable. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:03, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Name origin.

Salandit's Japanese name comes from imori([1]イモリ), Japanese word for newt, and Japanese fire belly newt[2], which has a similar pattern to Salandit's back on its belly[3]. Trainer Yusuf (talk) 14:44, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

That does seem a better candidate than gecko. Added. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:20, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
I still think my comment about salamanders in mythology and legend is a good addition. Srushj11 (talk) 19:51, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
I missed that somehow before. I added a mention. Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:32, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

French Name Origin

could the toxx also come from ? Yamitora1 (talk) 15:15, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Toxicofera gets "tox" from toxic. Plus, salamanders (and newts) are amphibians, not reptiles. glikglak 15:19, 10 July 2016 (UTC)


So is it going to be mentioned that its design is similar to cooled lava with fresh lava seeping down?Yamitora1 (talk) 16:05, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

I think the design is also based off [what I think is] the stereotypical Japanese burglar. I've seen multiple manga/anime have a thief/burglar/what-have-you wearing a black handkerchief on their head, tied in the the back... just like Salandit has a black head and those two little fleshy things on its neck that look like a handkerchief knot.

Inspiration: Cleopatra?

I know this information is only based on rumor and speculation (specifically the question posed by Chinese Riddler, who's clues are often rather on point), there's a theory that Saladit and it's evolved form (the evolved form confirmed via the recent datamining leak) are based off of Cleopatra. There is good evidence to support this, such as the female's pheromones that manipulate humans and pokémon alike being similar to Cleopatra's seduction of men in legends.

I don't know how we determine what goes into the Origin section, so I figured I'd at least post this here to get the discussion started. --Lestroisrois (talk) 19:05, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Nothing regarding any leaked information will be added to this site (see the site notice), nor should any of it be discussed on talk pages. This is not information we should have at this point, and it is not from any official source. Sorry, but things like this won't be considered as additions until official reveals. If you wish to discuss the data mining or others leaks, please do so only on the forums. Thanks. Crystal Talian 01:55, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Real-world inspiration

Please change that it is based on a fire belly newt, it is in fact based on a uroplatus phantasticus, a leaf-tailed gecko subspecies native to madagascar. it is the very likeness of salandit and it's evolution. - unsigned comment from NinjaBoyLao (talkcontribs)

Salandit's evolution has not been revealed yet. Though Salandit itself certainly doesn't resemble that particular gecko at all. It's much more similar in both body color and shape to the newt. Crystal Talian 14:44, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Gender ratio

As Serebi says [4] Salandit has custom gender ratio (M:88.1%/F:11.9%).--Dominikololo (talk) 15:14, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Serebii does not permit us to take information from them. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 15:17, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
I've heard this information come from dataminig. Maybe someone could've check ingame code.--Dominikololo (talk) 15:26, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Our species pages (currently) display "ideal ratios". For the most accurate ratios, see Personality value#Gender. (It has recently been discovered that they differ—see that articles edit history if you're interested.) Nescientist (talk) 15:49, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
