Merge[edit source]

Merge with Morph (Ability)? Morph already covers both of these. Doreiku Kuroofangu 19:34, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Also, Card (Ability) could probably be merged too. Doreiku Kuroofangu 19:41, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

Intro[edit source]

I think Poach is a unique case of recurring ability (at least, unique to my immediate recollection) in that, while as shown many games have abilities that turn enemies into items, they are not, as in other circumstances, alternate translations of the Japanese name or slight variations of a base name. So how about we reword the intro as "Poach is a recurring ability, blah blah turns weakened enemies into items. The similar abilities Transmute, Morph, etc, bear the same effect".

Card definitely shouldn't just be mentioned as an alternate name for Poach in the intro. Also fairly sure there are other circumstances of similar/same abilities having different names in Japan, but I wouldn't be able to recall which ones.
I wouldn't have thought it was necessary to separate Morph et al from the intro since they share the exact same function. They are just other names for it. JBed 12:49, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
They are alternate names for the ability, yes, but they are not alternate names for Poach, if that makes sense. Poach is never "also known as" Morph or Transmute, but they are still different names for the same skill. Doreiku Kuroofangu 12:52, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
Ermm... I know what you mean, but I disagree. The page is about the ability. We refer to the ability primarily by the name Poach. But the ability is also known as Morph, and Transmute. JBed 12:55, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
Exactly. Hence my suggestion for a slight rewording so we don't say Poach is also known as Morph, Transmute, etc, but instead we say they are similar abilities with the same effect. Doreiku Kuroofangu 12:57, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
No, I would say they are all the same ability but they have a different name. The Poach ability is also known as Morph and Transmute. Because Japan changed the name of the ability, it does not mean it is a different ability. JBed 13:03, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I guess I see your point. Doreiku Kuroofangu 13:13, April 26, 2012 (UTC)
