Talk:Hold Back (move)

Can anybody that knows more about making a page please expand on this? I saw that this was a ne move and I thought it needed a page of its own. All I know is that it acts like false swipe, and is found on the new Celebi Event Pokémon. - unsigned comment from ViperByte (talkcontribs)

There is a video of the movement vía Metronome: 56ZG-WWWW-WWWX-TMA8 --Jose vd (talk) 12:20, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Would this qualify as a signature move?

So far, only the Pokemon Bank Celebi can learn this move. Should we classify Hold Back as a signature move, or should we wait for time to pass? - unsigned comment from IM-T-MAN2 (talkcontribs)

I don't think so. It's not a move that can be learned normally by leveling up, like all other signature moves so far. We'll probably have to have a vote on that if we consider it. --KingStarscream (talk) 18:44, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
V-Create doesn't seem to be classified as a signature move, so I guess we'd do the same here. Yamiidenryuu (talk) 21:11, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
V-create also can be learned by more than one Pokémon. The 15th Anniversary Rayquaza has it. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 20:40, 2/22/2014 (UTC)
V-create was Victini's signature move until Rayquaza got it too. This is Celebi's signature move. --SnorlaxMonster 02:16, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
If I may insert my two cents into this? Ahem... I think back when Black and White were brand new, only Zekrom and Reshiram could use Fusion Bolt/Fusion Flare, yes? Later, a special Vicitini knowing both of those moves came out... and yet, Fusion Bolt and Flare remain Zekrom's/Reshiram's Signature Moves.IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 09:21, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
Reshiram and Zekrom learn those moves via level up. Victini only got them via event. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 09:23, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
I think I have a good grasp on how the "signature move" rules work. For a move to be considered signature, only a Pokémon and/or its' evolutions know said move, either via event (in Celebi's case) or leveling up. IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 17:06, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
If something is the only Pokémon or evolutionary family to learn a move by leveling up, form change, TM/HM and Move Tutor in that game, then it is the signature move of that Pokémon or evolutionary family (essentially, ignoring breeding and special/event moves). Also, if something is the only Pokémon able to learn a move at all (ignoring Sketch), then the move is its signature move. --SnorlaxMonster 07:38, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
