Decided to make a new thread myself for this so I can get the responses via email. Here you can report any minor errors with the main site instead of starting a lot of new questions. Things you can report here include:

  • Spelling/grammar errors.
  • Incorrect data (e.g. Pokemon with the wrong abilities listed, moves with the wrong power/type and so on).
  • Missing pictures (sprites, icons and artwork).

As I fix the errors, the answers will be hidden. Try and keep comments to a minimum to avoid clogging up the page, stick to important things like additions/corrections to the corrections. Remember, small corrections only!

Please, post corrections as ANSWERS, not comments. Thanks :)

You can contact the site admin directly at [email protected] if you like. You might at also want to post that suggestion in a separate page, so it gets more attention. People won't be able to discuss it if it's stuck in a clutter of posts in an already massive thread :)
All resolved answers, like the one about big roots and the one about Route 102, should be hidden, right?
I'd leave it to Pokemaster to see what he doesn't need any more.

Tell me if this gets too long, I don't want to spam this post with answers.

It is not mentioned on Feebas's page about how you can use both evolution methods to evolve it in ORAS.

Some Pokemon don't have their Gen 1 locations listed under the "Where to find [Pokemon]" part of their Pokedex page. I've put together this Pastebin of some of the locations that were missed, but it's not complete.

Charizard's Pokedex page says that it's Japanese name is "Rizadron" however, Charizard's Japanese name is actually "Lizadron"

Under the "Effects" section on High Jump Kick's page, if the user keeps going and crashes, they will lose half of their maximum HP, while the "Changes" section says "the crash damage is 1⁄2 of the damage the attack would have inflicted." The "Effects" section is incorrect, it should say what the "Changes" section says.

Something similar to the error listed above is on Jump Kick's page. The "Effects" section says that if the user keeps going and crashes, they will lose half of their maximum HP, while the "Changes" section says "the crash damage is 1⁄8 of the damage the attack would have inflicted." The "Effects" section is incorrect, it should say what the "Changes" section says.

Under "Outside of battle" on Cut's page, it doesn't list that Cut can cut tall grass in Generations 1-3. It should also mention that Pokemon with the ability Hyper Cutter cut a larger area of tall grass.

D/P/Pt TMs don't show the locations.

I wasn't quite sure where to put this one, but on Solgaleo's page, under "Where to find Solgaleo" it says that in order to get it in Moon, you need to evolve Cosmog/Cosmoem. This is not correct, as evolving Cosmoem in Moon will result in Lunala. The opposite goes for Lunala's page.

When typing "Let's Snuggle Forever", "Light That Burns the Sky", "Naganadel", "Poiple", "Stakataka", "Zeraora", "Plasma Fists", and "Blacephalon" into the search bar at the top, it doesn't have an autocomplete that links to the page for whatever is typed in.

Let's Snuggle Forever is not listed under the "New Z-Moves" section on the page for Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon.

Light That Burns the Sky and Plasma Fists are not listed under the "New moves" section on the page for Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon.

The "Ultra Necrozma" tab on Necrozma's page is not using the official art for Ultra Necrozma.

Naganadel's page is not using its official art.

Zeraora's page is not using its official art.

Didn't see the decimal
"On Pokemon X/Y's page, [...] not mentioned under the New X section"
Thats because those are only quick links. There are links on the page to the full lists for abilities, moves and Pokemon. The quick links were just added as new moves were revealed by Game Freak.

I've removed that part from your answer, but I'll fix up the rest when I can.
Oh, okay
I've now fixed all the missing Pokemon on the moves pages (Water Shuriken, Dragon Ascent, etc). It was still set to only show info from X&Y. As before, I've removed those parts from your answer. Thanks for being so detailed!
The search should be fixed now. The data is heavily cached and I have to update it manually, which I did before the game's launch but forgot to do after.

Pokemaster edit: the DexNav Pokemon for Hoenn do not specify when they're post-National Dex.

Hello, im currently playing Pokemon omega ruby, and im using your web site to find information on Pokemon in every area (like I've always done), and im sorry to say but i think you made en error in the site, because most of the Pokemon, you right you can find, you can't actually find.

It's so frustrating, pleas let me know if it's just me that's blind or if it's you that made a mistake.

this is not a complaint, just a heads op.

Could you provide some examples?
Note that there's a probability of each pokemon appearing - some appear less than others.
of course, on route 101 it says that, with the DexNav, you can catch, Lillipup, Zorua, and Sewaddle, well I've looked on that route extensively, and i'm telling you the only pokemon you can catch with the DexNav on that route is Zigzagoon, Wurmple and Poochyena. Your site even says that Zoura and Sewaddle is common pokemon in that area and i'm pretty sure none of them is in the game.

BTW. thank you for answering :)
That's because those Pokemon are only available in after you get the National Dex, the site just doesn't specify that. After you get it, a ton of new Pokemon start appearing on the DexNav. So it's actually correct, just a bit vague. Other sites like Bulbapedia say the exact same thing (see http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hoenn_Route_101#Generation_VI ).
Thanks for bringing this up though!
Oh! great! got it as the last thing last night so i havent tried it yet, cant wait.!

thanks a lot and no problem :)
Thanks. I've edited the answer with clarification, in other words what I actually need to fix when I get around to fixing it :)

Our R/S/E TMs list

At least in Emerald, you can also obtain Thunderbolt by shutting down the generator in New Mauville, then talking to Watson.

(The whole New Mauville thing starts when Watson is outside in Mauville after beating Norman.)

Source: Just got past it while playing Emerald.

the mirage spots weren't added as a location on the locations dex.

answered by
Mirage spots would be hard to add a a location because there are more than one of each Mirage spot that has the same name.
I think this has been brought up before, and the answer was the same thing Sept said.
And resolved my me XD
Small world.
for pokemon like Xatu for which the location on the pokedex page says "Mirage Spots", it should say the name of the specific mirage spot. although mirage spots may share names, that is at least more accurate than the current state.
It's not necroposting if the page  is always open for answers
Imo say something like "mirage mountain west of lilycove city"
in the official oras pokedex book, which i have, the mirage spots are #ed and tell which pokemon you get at them. doesn't say where the tms are, tho

I have decided to post all minor errors that I found in one post.

Where encounters says Pickup, please specify the level of the Pokemon with Pickup, because in Emerald different leveled Pokemon pick up different items.

The accuracies of thunder, hurricane, and blizzard don't go to 100% in their respective weather conditions. In their respective weather conditions, they simply don't check accuracy.

In all core series games where Feebas exists, it will evolve into Milotic by leveling it up with max beauty. Thus, if you max a Feebas's beauty and transfer it to a game where Pokemon contests don't exist, it will still evolve if you level it up.

The evolution section for Feebas and Milotic don't mention generations 6 or 7.

In Tyranitar's etymology, "tyrannosaurus" should be capitalized because it's a scientific name.

Magic guard prevents the Pokemon from being immobilized by paralysis in Generation 4.

Serene grace has always boosted the flinch chance of razor fang and king's rock.

Starting Generation 7, fell stinger raises physical attack by 3 stages. (credit to a user named Mr.R for pointing this out)

Celebi isn't missing its dex entry from emerald. That entry is the same as the ones for FireRed and LeafGreen according to this site, and Bulbapedia agrees: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Celebi_(Pok%C3%A9mon)#Pok.C3.A9dex_entries_2
Nevermind. I removed it from the post. Anyway it's supposed to be ruby and sapphire not FRLG.
In XY and ORAS, Feebas evolves by trading it with a Prism Scale. Beauty's not a factor anymore.

btw you might as well just remove issues that have been fixed.
Which errors have been fixed so far? I haven't checked in some time.
You wrote (fixed) by the one about the Primal sprites and Nightmare, I assumed that was what it meant.
Oh. I thought you meant the ones without (fixed) written next to them.
Fixed a few of these. About "Sticky Web" - the moves listed on the XY page isn't EVERY move, it's just the few that were revealed before XY's release. All the new moves are shown on http://pokemondb.net/move/generation/6
Spook, according to Bulbapedia, "Although Contest conditions are a hidden stat in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Pokémon Black and White, Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, and Pokémon X and Y, a Feebas that has maximum Beauty will still evolve in these games. The Prism Scale, introduced in Generation V, was created due to the fact that there is no legitimate way to raise the Beauty of a Feebas created in the Generation V games, whereas with FireRed and LeafGreen, a trade to Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald was all that was required, and a haircut or grooming by Daisy Oak or the Haircut brothers is all that is required in HeartGold and SoulSilver." Get your facts straight. Bulbapedia is correct BY DEFINITION.

On the minimize page, the following changes must be made:

The moves Stomp, Steamroller, Body Slam, Dragon Rush, Flying Press, and Phantom Force hit with double power and never miss* against a Pokemon that has used Minimize.

In Generations 1-5, Minimize has 20 PP. The moves listed above still check evasion as normal, and only Stomp and Steamroller have their power doubled.

In Generations 1-4, Minimize only raises Evasion one stage, and users of Minimize do not receive double damage from Steamroller. (although this edit may be trivial due to the fact that steamroller didn't exist back then.)

In Generation 3, the moves Astonish, Extrasensory, and Needle Arm hit with double power against a Pokemon that has used Minimize.

*unless the user of Minimize is in a semi-invulnerable state due to use of fly, dig, dive, phantom force, bounce, sky drop, or shadow force.

On the page about IVs:
> In Pokémon Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver, you can find out what type Hidden Power would be for any Pokémon by showing it to a man in the game corner Prize Exchange building (Veilstone City for Platinum, Celadon City for HG/SS).

This needs to be updated.

This isn't exactly an error but in the pokebase section there are 2 Little cup moveset questions for eevee

They should probably both be kept since it would be extremely difficult to transfer all the answers from one question to another (and have all answerers keep the points they get from votes).

Please add that Zigzagoon gets the move ExtremeSpeed through Pokemon Box: Ruby & Sapphire Event in Gen III. It is given to the player as an egg, which later hatches to a Zigzagoon once the player has 100 Pokémon in storage. This is a list of multiple Pokémon

Swablu - Start of game, knows False Swipe

Zigzagoon - 100 Pokémon, knows ExtremeSpeed

Skitty - 500 Pokémon, knows Pay Day

Picchu - 1499 Pokemon, knows Surf

Important for Sun/Moon:

  • The ability Water Bubble also doubles the power of Water moves used by the Pokémon, before STAB, in addition to its other features.
  • Ribombee learns Pollen Puff at Lv. 25, once it evolves.

I believe that on this page (and on the Water Bubble ability page as well) there is an error. The Water Bubble ability also reduces the damage done to this pokémon by fire type attacks by half. Both the type defenses section of Araquanid's page and the ability's page do not show this.
I really love this site and hope I can improve it.
Now i should really get back to homework.

Unlike the other Terrain pages, Psychic Terrain's does not mention what it turns Nature Power into (Psychic).

Gabite is available in Sun/Moon, whereas your Pokedex entry says that we have to trade/migrate it. It's available in Haina Desert, at night during a sandstorm and you have to use an Adrenaline Orb to SOS chain any of the normal spawns (Trapinch, Dugtrio or Sandile). Therefore we can breed for Gabite and evolve to Garchomp.

Thanks, this was being updated about the same time you posted!

In Pokemon Sun, you can get a Porygon in Aether House on Ula'ula Island but it is not listed inthe "Where to Find" section.

I got it in the room of Acerola, the Ghost Captain, after completing the first main quest by talking to the Aether Foundation worker in the mask. At the same time I got the Up-grade item from the girl Aether employee in the same room. In my opinion, it's probably the same for Pokemon Moon.
