Spin or body[edit]

According to an undo that was done on one of my edits, "spin" is the same as "body" in Ultimate. However we already have a page for Body that properly reflects it (Which also lists Bowser Smash 4 B-Air as body but is foot?). Why the confusion? Shouldn't the types pages list moves with those specific types?--CanvasK (talk) 12:11, February 17, 2020 (EST)

It's a carryover from Brawl. Technically spin and body attacks were functionally identical in that game as only body + spin stickers existed, and the types were finally merged in Ultimate, with them still being listed on separate articles due to convention. It might be worth merging the articles or something at this point tbh. Alex the Weeb 12:21, February 17, 2020 (EST)
I think a merge may lead to confusion since there is no reference to spin as a type in Ultimate at all. Pikmin (type) has its own page despite being used by 1 character (which I think is affected by the weapon super-type), so why not a page for a much larger type? The type page already lists spin and body separately.--CanvasK (talk) 12:46, February 17, 2020 (EST)
