Since the term "Tattle" isn't used at all in Sticker Star, Color Splash, or The Origami King, should it still count? They're just called "hints" or "advice." PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 23:17, November 11, 2020 (EST)

It's not called "Tattle" in Super Paper Mario, its usage is technically exclusive to the Goomba partners. I'd be okay with splitting the information for whatever is used by Tippi/Kersti/Huey/Olivia, maybe including a "see also" section if it'll be multiple articles. Thing is, is "hint"/"advice" too generic? "Tattle" is unique enough that just about everyone knows what you're referring to, whereas words like that can pretty much refer to anything.

Considering it always has at least one of the functions of ordinary Tattling (enemies and objects or field tattles) I don't think it's too much of a stretch to cover them all here. Splitting would just make things confusing especially since they don't seem to have a unique name applied to them in later games. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad!

I'm not saying to split it, I'm just saying that we should stop using "Tattle" to refer to non-64 and TTYD games. We can note that the ability is similar, but it's not the same. The post-SPM enemy analyses can't be done in battle either. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk)
I was specifically responding to LinkTheLefty's suggestion of splitting them into at least two pages. I agree that if it's never specifically called Tattle in a specific game, we shouldn't be calling it that. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 15:15, November 16, 2020 (EST)
I misunderstood. That way works too, would be much easier. LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:53, November 17, 2020 (EST)
