- Gotta Catch 'Em All. I think it's a sibling trope (both subtropes of Plot Coupon) that can overlap, depending on whether the "All" that you've "Gotta Catch" has a gameplay function or not.
- Sword of Plot Advancement is a subtrope, as noted on its page. Well, except that it doesn't seem to be specific to video games. I guess the actual subtrope in question is folded into a slightly broader trope that makes it not technically a subtrope? We get that sometimes.
- I don't understand what the third bullet is talking about.

If you think a name is unclear, remember that you are required to make substantial arguments and provide substantial evidence that the name is really unclear to actual readers, and that this lack of clarity exists outside your imagination. There are all sorts of ways to do this; you can use a Wick Check, an Inbound Check, Google result analysis or a dictionary, to name a few. Just saying "this is totally unclear" is not an argument in and of itself.
About half of us agree, and the other half don't. Something more substantial than "gut feeling" would be a good idea. Does a wick check show significant misuse?
