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.

This site says that walking has a 9% probability of meeting Minun in both Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. However, in my Alpha Sapphire, you have 9% probability of meeting Plusle and 0% probability of meeting Minun.

It's also worth noting that, if Bulbapedia and Serebii are to be believed, the chance of many of the other encounters are also incorrect.

I didn't mean that it's exactly 9% (I thought so, because pokemondb says it), but that there should be Plusles instead of Minuns in Alpha Sapphire. Nevertheless, someone should check these percentages and correct them.

No gen 7 characters are mentioned at all as type specialists. Example, if I go in to the Ground type page Hapu is not mentioned at all.

Well, there is something wrong with the XY Gym leaders& Elite Four page: Wikstrom is listed with Diantha instead of being the Elite Four #1

On the Lileep PokeBase page, it says it learns Bind, Curse, Recover, Tickle, and Mirror Coat, but on the Cradily PokeBase page, it says it doesn't learn any egg moves.

In the EVs page

If you have over 100 EVs in a stat, the first berry will reduce them to 100, while further berries will decrease the EVs by 10. Therefore if you want to remove all EVs you will need 11 berries for the stat.

But this only works in Gen 4 and not in other generations.

In every route that contains water in Unova says that you can catch Red-striped Basculin in both Black and White but in Black you find Red striped and in White you find Blue striped.

This should go on the thread for the location guide... though I recently added an answer that points out a very similar error, so I'm not sure it's necessary you add this answer there instead. https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/14511/corrections-improvements-to-our-location-guide?show=77265#a77265

In the unavailable Pokémon list for GO it says Rotom is not available, which is false

Source: Experience( I have a Mow Rotom ) & There are literally sprites for Rotom in GO.

Not a big thing, but I was looking at Beautifly's Pokedex entry and noticed this. In the Pokedex entry it shows what moves she can learn, but if you go to any of the moves she learns by level up, it doesn't show her in the list that she can learn it.
(As in, she learns stun spore at level 15, but if you look at the move stun spore it doesn't show that she learns it on level up)

Edit: I thought that I read that it was Black and White, not SwSh. My bad. Hey Pokemaster, do you think that you could use tabs like there are on some of the other pages to switch between the different versions? Whatever route you go, I don't envy the amount of time it'll take to add all of those entries for every version. Oof

beautifly has a 50/50 gender ratio. Can you really say that beautifly is a female?
Not actually an error. This happens because the movedex pages are for Sw/Sh, and the dex entry you're viewing is for US/UM. (Beautifly doesn't exist in Sw/Sh.)
Yes, with Pokemon entirely missing from SwSh it messes up the move page. I'm working on an update to include all Pokemon, but trying to figure out the best way to display them all without overloading the page.
