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 :)

This post collects errors posted by people who made a new thread instead of answering here. (The new threads are closed, but will be linked here.)

  • Bow Delibird, Bow Cubchoo, and Scarf Spheal, Holiday Pikachu, Halloween Gengar, and Pikachu Visor Bulbasaur are missing from the respective Pokemon's sprite galleries. [original reports: 1, 2]
  • Inner Focus description needs an update, as from Gen 8 it also prevents the dropping of Attack from Intimidate. Source confirming the missing information [original report]

Sorry, I did indeed forget to mention a missing pokemon on the Pokemon Go PokeDex. That being Douse Drive Genesect.
That's fine -- you can make your own posts here if you have new errors to report.
Sounds great!
Would you mind if I posted future minor errors here in this comments list or would you prefer if they were on the main post in general?
@Edensteeden If you ever see any site error, you can post a separate answer.
Some people like to post one answer and edit that answer if they find something new to bring up. I don't know what Pokemaster's preference would be (entirely new answers would give him email notifications, while edits to the same answer wouldn't).
I've fixed a couple of these and removed them from your answer. Sprites are a work in progress... I'm trying to set up a script to more quickly parse and extract new sprites from the Go data.

Your daily dose of minor errors:
1. Douse Drive Genesect's Pokemon Go move list is missing Water Techno Blast as a legacy move
2. The Pokemon Go shiny list states that Kyurem is not able to be shiny
3. Zacian and Zamazenta appear as their normal colorations in the Go shiny page apart from all the other pokemon

by
Thanks, I've fixed these. However for Zacian/Zamazenta, they don't actually have a shiny sprite in Go currently. I'll add a note to the page about that.

The Natural Gift page is missing the Roseli, Kee, and Maranga Berries. According to Serebii, they are:

Roseli - Fairy type, 80 BP
Kee - Fairy type, 100 BP
Maranga - Dark, 100 BP

There are a few Pokemon, such as Monferno, that are missing their gen 8 icon/menu sprites. I'm guessing this is every Pokemon that was added to gen 8 after the original SwSh (ie. added in expansion pass or BDSP), but I haven't checked every Pokemon to confirm this guess.

Defiant and competitive activate anytime an opponent lowers the ability user's stats, not only when they use stat-lowering moves.

In Route 1 (Alola) - South the USUM Rattata is the default version, not the Alolan version. I've taken a screenshot of the page and added it down below with the main parts highlited.

The Galarica Cuff, Galarica Wreath, Tart Apple, Sweet Apple, Cracked Pot, and Chipped Pot are not stones, and thus Galarian Slowpoke, Galarian Slowbro, Galarian Slowking, Applin, Flapple, Appletun, Sinistea, and Polteageist shouldn't be on this page.

by
Good spot. It currently displays any evolution where you use an item (specifically use rather than hold). Before gen 8 that was always evo stones. I should probably rename the page.
Good to know, thanks for responding!

Typhlosion's Silver dex entry says "blaz ing", not blazing. Not sure if Silver itself had this error, though I felt like I should post it here.

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.

by
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).

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.

by
I've added the TM locations. Do you remember what exactly you were referring to with Rotom forms? The Pokedex page already mentions their type (but maybe it didn't when you posted?)

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.

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.

Snorlax is at Motostoke riverbank but it says you can't get it

On Charizard's page, it says that you can only get Charizard, in Sword and Shield, from trading or migrating. However, you can get a gift charmander postgame. Therefore, it should be evolve Charmeleon.

Edit: Forgot about raids

[Editing this, because it still isn't working]

For some reason, the moveset searcher isn't working.

It brings up an incomplete list of Pokemon that can learn the move. This happens regardless of where you access the site, or who is using the search service.

Highly specifically, I can't get Rayquaza to show up.

I was originally looking for a 'Mon in FireRed who could learn Brick Break and also Aerial Ace (besides togepi or charizard ), and nothing came up that I liked, so i searched Fly and Brick Break instead, and it didn't work. So, I searched for guys compatible with Fly, and a ton of guys didn't come up, including Rayquaza.

Also searched for outrage, rest, dragon dance, and hyper beam to similar, incomplete results.

I've been testing this for six days now, and the results are always the same; incomplete.

Hmm, I think it's probably using SWSH data now and obviously many Pokemon aren't available in SWSH. Will think on it and try and find a good solution.
Awesome.
Hope it gets resolved soon

Sweet!
It works

A few areas from Heartgold/Soulsilver are missing their fishing encounter pool (so far noticed Route 40, Olivine City, Cianwood city). Visiting the pages of the individual Pokemon shows that they don't appear there either (Corsola for example has no listed encounters for hgss, and Staryu only has one, lacking all the ones where it's encountered by fishing).
My apologies if there's an already known reason for this.

by
A lot of encounter pools are missing. Pokemaster is just too busy to fix them. https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/14511

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.
Hi, PM, a stupid suggestion, maybe you can like limit to what gen what game only then showing the nat dex or local dex of theat specific game? and the general nat dex, let the user choose which edition of national dex to view? i know it gonna be a super big trouble for you, but as we can see, pokemon is gonna having their move edited and edited again after adding/deleting multiple mons/move in future game.

The moveset checker doesn't show forretress for a set of toxic spikes, toxic spikes and stealth rock. Or Showdown! got it wrong

by
Oh and I should also note that when I put spikes and toxic spikes in,  it didn't say results for spikes toxic spikes and stealth rock but saidonly toxic spikes and stealth rock
The moveset searcher doesn't work for Pokemon that don't exist in Gen 8.

In this site, the levels of Pokèmon you get from swarm (Black/White) are totally wrong!

Let me list those ,

  1. It is said in this site that from route 1, we can only get a Farfetch'd of level 2. But this is not correct because We can find it at 10-52 range
  2. The level range given for Mankey is inaccurate, because I conducted there a super-long search for an entire day. Actually, it is also 10-52
  3. Wyanut's level range is also the above one!

Briefly, the level-range of swarm Pokèmon are same (except plusle/minun) but the details listed about them in Pokèdex is wrong!

Source: My experience

Thank you!
