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 :)

so you can find colisopod in bridge field and on golisopods page it says you can only find it at the lake of outrage
On the gen 2-5 type coverage page it says that clefairy and snubbull line dont have any weaknesses even though they are meant to be normal type even if i used a type such as steel that is super effective towards fairy wont work also you should remove pure fairies from gen 6 onwards because they share the same problem
These two comments should be answers.

The type pages are inconsistent. At one point in the Ice page, it says there are 33 Ice Pokemon. However, later on, it says there are 55. The same inconsistency error applies to the Fairy page, and likely other ones as well.

It was out of date, but also the number in the paragraph of text wasn't counting alternate forms, whereas in the stats below it does counts forms. I've updated it to say "around 60" to make my life easier :D

Seemingly every Pokémon from generations 2 - 8 say that they can be traded or migrated into the Let's Go games, when in reality only Pokémon from generation 1, the Alolan forms, and Meltan and Melmetal can be in Let's Go.

The Triage page states that since Comfey is the only pokemon legally with Triage, the only moves that are affected in practice are Draining Kiss, Floral Healing, Rest, and Synthesis, but Comfey can learn Giga Drain in both Gen 7 and 8.

The description of Soul-Heart says

Soul-Heart raises the bearer's Special Attack one stage when a teammate faints.

Yet this is not always the case. If a Pokémon on either team faints it boosts the ability bearer’s Special Attack, so if you KO your opponent you’ll also get the boost.

On the gravity page, it says nothing about how gravity increases the accuracy of moves by 5/3.

The system shows tags, but sometimes some of them don’t exist! Here is an example with the “metapod” tag:

There is information missing for the Training section for a lot of, if not all, Pokemon introduced in Galar. Kubfu, Urshifu, and Zarude, despite all three currently being available in the games, are also lacking information in the Breeding section and the Pokedex entry section.

Pokemon like Magearna, Marshadow, and Poipole are all listed as obtainable through "trade/migrate from another game" in Let's Go P/E, when in fact none of them can actually be sent to those games.

On the G-Max Resonance page it says that it is for Meowth. Everything else is good.

The Flying type page has this line:

There is only one pure Flying Pokémon (Tornadus).

However, this is false. I know of at least 2 other pokemon that are of pure flying type: Rookidee and Corvisquire. There may be more that I don't know of.

Please correct this. Thank you!

by
Thanks, I hadn't updated it for Gen 8. There are also more Pokemon with Flying as a primary type now.

Scizor has a Mega Evolution, available from X & Y onwards.

Garchomp has a Mega Evolution, available from X & Y onwards.

More Mega Evolution pages likely have this message as well. These Mega Evolutions cannot be obtained in Sword and Shield, and some cannot be obtained in Let's Go! Pikachu or Let's Go! Eevee, so these pages should not say "onwards". Perhaps replace that blurb with "up to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon."

Pages such as Kingdra's, Dragalge's, Reshiram's, and Zekrom's do not state that they can learn Draco Meteor via Move Tutor in Sword and Shield.

The Ability description for Libero is inaccurate. Libero changes the Pokemon's type before the attack is used, not after.
