Yeah, it probably is. I used to use my brother's copy and it has that mistake. There are many more mistakes but I forgot where they were located.
Is this what you’re talking about?: https://www.amazon.com/Pokémon-Deluxe-Essential-Handbook-Need/dp/0545795664

Most Pokémon Deluxe Essential Handbooks have several errors.
This list is from Bulbapedia:

  • Under Absol's possible moves, Detect is listed twice.
  • Mega Audino's category is listed as the "Light Pokémon" (Ampharos's category), instead of the Hearing Pokémon.
  • Dialga's signature move, Roar of Time, is not listed in its possible moves.
  • Under Palkia's possible moves, Aqua Tail is listed twice.
  • Diancie is missing an evolutionary line, despite the fact it can Mega Evolve into Mega Diancie.
  • Donphan's type is listed as Normal, instead of Ground.
  • Dusknoir's region is listed as Hoenn instead of Sinnoh.
  • In the edition printed in the United States, Krabby's weight is listed as 614.3 lbs. rather than 14.3 lbs.
  • Mega Lopunny's type is listed as Normal, instead of Normal/Fighting.
  • Mega Lopunny's category is listed as the "Caring Pokémon" (Alomomola's category), instead of the Rabbit Pokémon.
  • In the edition printed in the United States, Reshiram's weight is listed as 6,727.5 lbs. rather than 727.5 lbs.
  • In the edition printed in the United States, Rufflet's height is listed as 21'08" rather than 1'8".
  • Mega Sableye's weight is listed as 24.3 lbs. (in the United States edition) or 11.0 kg (in the Australian edition) rather than 354.9 lbs. or 161.0 kg, respectively.
  • Sandile's category is listed as "Desert Croc" instead of "Desert Croc Pokémon."
  • Mega Sceptile's type is listed as Grass, instead of Grass/Dragon.
  • In edition printed in the United States, Spearow's picture on page 354 shows Fearow instead. This does not occur in the edition printed in Australia and was corrected in later reprints.
  • Zigzagoon's category has a missing space, listed as "TinyRacoon Pokémon" (which was its category prior to Generation VI).

There you have it, all the errors found.
May this quench your curiosity.

Palkia also listed aqua tail twice
I used to wonder about the audino mistake
@Smasher Thanks, it was fixed.

@Moonlit I always thought Lopunny was wrong, turns out it was.

No, this error does not appear in all versions, but it does appear in the edition printed in the U.S., before the error was fixed in later versions.
