Signature move in other languages: new section
:The problem is that the interwiki bots won't automate linking between content pages and disambig pages. If someone on any of the wikis happens to link one of the specific item pages to the shared item pages on the Japanese or Chinese wiki, the interwiki bots all quickly replace all of the links on the individual pages with links to the shared pages, and you end up with a many-to-one relationship across wikis (which causes issues for the interwiki bots, as well as just being conceptually bad). This has happened a few times recently: Most recently due to [[:fr:Special:Diff/1577175|an edit]] to the French wiki that added incorrect interwiki links, but not that long before that, when the [[:de:Geheimschlüssel (Kanto)|German page was split]].
:The reason I would recommend regular users not try to fix this is that it requires editing every page in the association network on each wiki; if you miss one, the interwiki bots will just reinsert the incorrect link when they update again at their regular time. This will also happen if you get reverted on one of the wikis, which as someone with some amount of clout, I'm normally not, although I do still get reverted sometimes (but not normally on Bulbapedia—fortunately, your revert was reverted before the interwiki bots had a chance to spread the incorrect link across all of the wikis again). --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 11:34, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
 
== Signature move in other languages ==
 
Hello! Regarding [[Special:Diff/3039599|this edit]], what do you mean by signature move not being a "proper term"? I originally added those names from other languages from the [https://youtu.be/dP_0oWjh9Jg?t=29s Volcanion event video from 2016] on the French, German, Italian, and European Spanish channels. The French and Spanish names match those currently used on [https://swordshield.pokemon.com/en-us/pokemon-galar-region/morpeko/ Morpeko's page] for Pokémon Sword and Shield. The German and Italian names have since changed though, from "Paradeattacke" to "einzigartigen Attacke", and "mossa caratteristica" to "mossa esclusiva", respectively. Don't you think they are notable enough to warrant an "In other languages" section? --[[User:Mine4017|Mine4017]] ([[User talk:Mine4017|talk]]) 23:34, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
