Why is the move called "Devastate" but the Japanese name is "Complete Burn"? There's no English name for this move. So why are there two names? --[[Tracey Sketchit|<span style="color:#33CC66;">'''ケンジ'''</span>]][[User talk:Kenji-girl|<span style="color:#6600CC;">'''の'''</span>]][[User:Kenji-girl|<span style="color:#FF00CC;">'''ガール'''</span>]] 06:57, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

:This attack, with the exact same Japanese name, appeared on the {{TCG ID|Neo Revelation|Shining Gyarados|65}} card from Neo Revelation. The translated name we have for that is "Complete Burn", and the English TCG gave us the attack as "Devastate".

This attack, with the exact same Japanese name, appeared on the Shining Gyarados card from Neo Revelation. The translated name we have for that is "Complete Burn", and the English TCG gave us the attack as "Devastate". While this is not a guarantee that TPCi will retain that name when Black & White gets its North American release in March, it is an official English name that was given to the attack nine years ago. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:41, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
