Is there any way to do this? If the template/file itself has been reviewed already or was done by someone with Editor permission, I don't need to review the change again on the page where it's transcluded/embedded.

How to disable "template/file changes in this version are pending review"
And this message shouldn’t appear in that case, only if a non-trusted user edited a used template or file, and that edit hasn’t been reviewed yet. If it’s not the case, please report the bug on Phabricator.
Hmm I think this might be happening because the files were moved to a commons wiki and then deleted from this wiki (example page - https://lol.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Afreeca_Freecs&oldid=880962&diff=curand I won't check it so it stays). Is that intended behavior?
I know this problem (though I have never reported it as a bug). To be honest, I think there’s no good solution for this problem – I see three possible options: the current one, where you have to mark each page using images from the central image repository as checked, another one is the ability to mark individual images stored in the central repo as checked, including ones that are never actually used on this wiki, and the third is to not require flagging for images of the central repo, which means that not all content will be checked, and vandals can overwrite images with anything with a lower risk of being reverted before anyone could see it.
Could I just totally disable the "pending changes for included files or templates" notice altogether? I know that's not a good option in general but it would work for my wiki - we have Pending Changes more to protect against well-intentioned but incorrect content page updates and rarely have to deal with vandalism or any template edits at all.
