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

For the ability steam engine, it states here that it raises speed by 3 stages when hit by a fire type or water type move but it is actually raised by 6 stages not 3

Currently, Eternabeam's max PP is listed as 9.6 (clearly an error) and its PP is listed as 6. On bulbapedia it is listed as 8 and 5 respectively.

Sorry if I have no idea what I’m talking about, but here (https://pokemondb.net/location/alola-route-9)
It says “fishing with a super rod” but in USUM there is only one rod to fish with and that rod is called just a “Fishing Rod.” I’m not sure if this applies to every gen 7 fishing-mention also

by
I'm not sure if it's the same, but in bw the only rod is the super rod, so the fishing rod might be called a super rod
Yes it should say Fishing Rod, it's a limitation of how I store the encounters in the database, which I never got around to resolving.

Impidimp/Morgrem/Grimmsnarl are 100% male, I have confirmed this due to Pokémon Home and Showdown! yet on their Pokedex page, it says that they are gender less, indicated by a “—“ next to their gender.

I also noticed the Hattena/Hattrem/Hatterene are like this too, they are 100% female yet they are marked as genderless.

Oh oops, I realized that this is for all Gen 8 Pokémon.

Petal Dance in gen. 3 is listed as having 120 BP. This is wrong, the BP is 70. Example here, but probably is wrong everywhere: https://pokemondb.net/pokedex/vileplume/moves/3

It's correct on this page: https://pokemondb.net/move/petal-dance

The newly introduced move called Terrain Pulse is an "Aura and Pulse" move, which is boosted by Clawitzer's Mega Launcher ability.

Toxic has perfect accuracy for Poison types, which is not in the move description.

Toxic will never miss if used by a Poison-type Pokémon, even if the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Fly or Dig.

Also says it on Showdown!.

There is information missing for the move Bug Buzz. Bug Buzz can bypass Substitute but cannot break it. In addition, it does not affect Pokemon with the ability Soundproof.

For the name origin of Sandaconda, it says sand and anacondo. This is probably just a typo, but it should say anaconda.

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.

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.

On the page for Galarian Slowbro, it doesn't say that it can have Own Tempo or Regenerator. Own Tempo is a second ability and Regenerator is a Hidden Ability.

The video on the home page for Pokémon Unite has become unavailable. You should remove it since it's at the top of the page. Also the Facebook link appears to be broken (I decided to click it for no reason).
