Hi this is a page that will include the list of multi-hit moves and details on them, similar to one-hit knockout move Pokepranav 02:30, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Dude, you can't just make a nearly empty page and expect everybody else to fill it in for you. When you make a new page here, you gotta make it look good, add as much detail as you can, and categorize it. Not use the talk page to tell everybody what it's gonna be like eventually. And editing that same comment constantly. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 02:33, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Would it be better if this was a category instead? Then Pages would automaticlly fill it's self up. Thoughts? --Pokemaster97 02:38, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the help and sorry for making you mad, I'll start working on the category.Thanks Pokemaster97.(I can't believe I didn't think of that.Pokepranav 02:42, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
There already is a category. You may have noticed that I initially redirected the article to it. I'll leave it alone for a little if someone can make this a proper article, comparable to the OHKO one. If it's just a list, then I'm going to redirect it to the category again.

I think I got it off to a decent start so far. I'm working on adding more details now. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 02:50, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
That was fast. Thanks for taking interest in my idea, I'm new to Bulbapedia and I'm still getting used to editing these pages
Thought you might be when you moved it. Thanks for that MM. Werdnae (talk) 02:57, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
No problem. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 03:17, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Move to Multi-hit move?

Personally, I'm of the opinion that both this page and the category Swipe moves should be renamed to multi-hit moves. The name swipe seems a bit inaccurate, given that Fury Swipes is the only move that uses a swiping movement. Unless there's something else I'm missing? - Blazios talk 21:42, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

I only moved this to "Swipe move" to match the category. Not sure why the category is called what it is. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 02:50, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. Multi-hit moves is the best name for them. --SnorlaxMonster 10:18, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Beat Up

Is Beat Up a swipe move? It hits multiple times, and veekun says it it's a multi-hit move. --Enervation 02:22, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

  • If it hits more than once, it's obviously a multi-hit move. It just doesn't match any of the existing categories on the page. --Stratelier 13:49, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Average vs. Effective power

The use of "average" and "effective" power for Triple Kick is misleading, I'm going to swap them. "Effective" should be the cumulative power if all hits of a move connect, with "average" taking the move's base accuracy into account (as this is the amount of damage you can expect to inflict on average in a real battle). --Stratelier 13:50, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I see no reason to put the max amount of damage (60) in the infobox at all. I don't know why I included it in the first place as it can just as easily be mentioned in the sentence that details how the damage is accumulated. Since Triple Kick takes accuracy/evasion into account to an extent, it's not the same as other multi-strike moves. How about we call its calculation Effective power, since 47.07 is effectively the average amount of damage, given that we've factored the 90% probabilities? Please reply your thoughts here and I'll do the edit if you agree. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest 20:25, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
