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 :)

Just a small problem - in the "Deep Sea Tooth" page, it says
"Deep Sea Scale also causes Clamperl to evolve into Huntail when Clamperl is traded holding the item."
It should say Deep Sea Tooth, not Scale.

Thanks, fixed.

Samurott can't breed with honedge set and swords of justice can't breed for sacred sword.

Which page is this error on? I checked Oshawott's page and sacred sword's page and didn't see anything about legendaries breeding.
https://pokemondb.net/move/sacred-sword if you go down it will say learnt by breeding and show Oshawott set.
The entry is accurate -- the move comes from Smeargle.
See here: https://pokemondb.net/pokedex/samurott/egg#move-sacred-sword
It shows it can only learn the move via Smeargle (or another Samurott family member who knows it).

The pokemon go page has no imformation except the stuff from when it was released.

by
Yeah I know, it's been on the backburner for a long while. I wasn't really playing Go much at all the first two years. Ironically I am playing Go a lot more recently so I should stop and use that time to update the page instead :D
What level are you? I am Lv 24.
I've finally updated the GO section! Now at https://pokemondb.net/go/pokedex
There are also pages for moves and evolutions. I still have a bunch more things to update and will be gradually adding to the section over the next weeks/months.

P.S. to answer your question, I just got to level 38 in GO :)

The size list page has an error. When put in order of height or weight, somewhere in there linoone appears where it shouldn't and the ordering goes out of wack. Also, all the Galarian Mons appear right next to each other even when sorting with height and weight.

by
I changed the way I store the height/weight in the database recently which messed up that page. Should be fixed now!
Thanks, I appreciate it. :)

On Relicanth's page under the "Where to find Relicanth" section, the only way listed for Sapphire, Ruby, and Emerald is "Trade/migrate from another game", but Relicanth can be found at Route 124 and 126 in all 3 of those games. Source

In regards Sirfetch'd evolution, he needs to land three crital hits in one battle, not K.O 3 pokemon in one battle as stated. Ideally, Focus Energy plus his Leek item, to ensure a high crit rate.

by
Thanks, I've fixed it now.

  • The new pokemon Toxtricity has one difference between its forms that is not actually present on its entry. Its final move (at level 52) actually changes depending on its form. Currently, the entry claims its "magnetic flux" for both forms, while the amped form actually learns "gear shift" instead.

There seems to be some minor mistake when it comes to the location of Rhyhorn in pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver. It can be found at the Safari Zone as well, but only Victory Road and Diglett's Cave are mentioned.

Several reliable sources (such as serebii.net and bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net) all confirm they can be found at the Safari Zone as well. Specifically in the Savannah area during morning and day.

All the Safari Zone locations in HGSS are missing.

There seems to be a mistake with the location of Togepi (and evolved versions). It says you can only get it by trading or migrating from another game. But its a whole big thing how you get to hatch Togepi from an egg. I guess you technically can't find Togepi as you get it in the egg form. But the way it currently is is pretty misleading.

Based on cross-checking with Bulbapedia, the following locations are missing for Togepi (and cause incorrect flow-on 'Trade/migrate...' entries for Togetic and Togekiss):

  • Violet City in HG/SS (Egg from Professor Elm)
  • Nimbasa City in B2/W2 (trade with Yancy/Curtis), as well as Dream Radar
  • Friend Safari in X/Y (Fairy-type)
  • Lavaridge Town in OR/AS (Egg from NPC)

I added the missing entries to this post since Togepi encounters are not missing for every game, e.g. FR/LG and Pt are correct.

The location of Corsola seems to be missing for Soul Silver / Heart Gold. It says it can only be traded/migrated from another game, but they can be found by fishing with a good or super rod in: Routes 19, 34, 40, Cherrygrove City, Olivine City, Cianwood City, Union Cave (according to Serebii.net and bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net).

On the Sword/Shield page, it says there's ten new Pokémon confirmed so far. The entire Galar Pokedex is now on the website, and a quick look reveals more than ten Pokémon.

In Emerald, the TM11 sunny day, TM19 giga drain, and TM31 brick break can be obtained at Trainer Hill.

All of Rotom's forms were electric ghost type in Generation 4.

Centiskorch's page says that to obtain it, you must trade or transfer from another game. However, it can be obtained by leveling up Sizzlipede.

I do not know if this has already been brought to your attention in another way but there is a slight error on your location guide for Route 8 in the Galar section.

A Crustle (Iv 40 for me) can be encountered in the over world right before Steam drift way, however it is not listed.

The hold item Stick is now known as Leek, so this page needs an update.

In the Galar Mine, it says that Woobat can only be found at level 15 highest. However, I have just found a Woobat at level 16. Am I missing something or is this an actual mistake?

It's probably a mistake. That's what this thread is for.

This might be more of a suggestion than an error, but I think the HM slave searchers (like this one for XY) should list Smeargle as learning every HM.
