Damage trivium: is it worth keeping?
::::When something gets so complicated that accurately describing it takes a solid (and dense) paragraph, it's not really worth including as trivia. Furthermore, the "max damage" situation just requires so much complicity from all battlers that it's not even a practical feat; it's ''very'' much contrived. IMO that hurts its worth as trivia. Mostly, though, IMO it just inspires too much quibbling and is too complicated to be confident of a correct answer to be worth including, period.
::::But ''if'' this belongs anywhere, as far as I'm concerned, it ''really'' only belongs on the [[damage]] page, because that's very much the core. Shuckle is otherwise pretty much equally as important to the trivia as {{a|Flash Fire}} or {{m|Ice Ball}} or just about any other part of the situation is; but it's not really sensible to put it on all those pages, nor is it any more sensible really to only have it on ''Shuckle'''s page. This is about damage; IMO that's where it belongs. [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 17:22, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
:::::Very persuasive, Tiddlywinks; your first paragraph pretty much summed up my opinion but more eloquently, and your second one won me over. I've added the point to [[damage]], but as long as discussion is ongoing here I'm not removing it here yet (although I agree it should go).
