Shiny pokemon in anime not listed

Hi I was just watching through some episodes and noticed that in episode 537 "Enter Galactic" Saturn's Toxicroak is in fact shiny. By comparing images on the following pages and considering that there is no color scheme change when croagunk evolves into toxicroack. When i noticed the color difference I immediately referred to your pokedex as serebii.net is my favourite pokemon resource. I soon discovered that your list of shiny pokemon that appear in the anime does not include this toxicroak and I wanted to point this out to you. Here are some pages I think you should examine.
Episode pictures: http://serebii.net/anime/pictures/shinou/537ps8.shtml
Color schemes: http://serebii.net/pokedex-dp/454.shtml
Your shiny pokemon in the anime listing: http://serebii.net/anime/shiny/

Thanks guys I hope you check this out

The Fast Ball here says it works well on Pokemon with a high speed. However, I believe it works well only on roaming Pokemon, so it's somewhat misleading.
Actually, the effect changed from the original GSC. The HG/SS effect for the Fast Ball is that it is more effective against fast Pokemon; even though the original HG/SS effect is that it is more effective against Pokemon that try to run away. I think this change was made because in the original GSC, some non-roaming Pokemon had a chance of running away, but in the 3rd and 4th generations, the only non-roamers that do this are in one of the various Safari Zones or the Great Marsh.

Some other errors I noticed:

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/nationalpark.shtml#c

It's a Crystal error, but it's simple. There are two spots for Weedle in the Bug-Catching Contest listings. The one that has 5% encounter rate, minimum level 12, and maximum level 15 should be Beedrill instead.

Joshua and Alex are PokéFans, not Black Belts.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/route13.shtml#c

Another simple Crystal error. Once again, Joshua and Alex are PokéFans, not Black Belts.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/route13.shtml#4th

The sprite for Joshua is that of a female PokéFan. Last time I checked, Joshua is a boy's name.

Serebii, I know that you and the other people in charge of Pokéarth have had difficulties fixing the Crystal Headbutt data, but I can help with that. I determined the patterns that each Headbutt location has in the Crystal version, and I'll list them here. There are no Headbutt locations in Crystal other than the ones I'm listing, and of course, all Headbutt-obtained Pokémon in Crystal are at Level 10 and their appearance rates don't vary by time of day.

Route 26, Route 27, and Route 32
Normal Trees: Hoothoot (65%), Exeggcute (20%), Ekans (15%)
Special Trees: Hoothoot (50%), Pineco (30%), Exeggcute (20%)

Route 29, Route 30, Route 31, Route 34, Route 35, Route 36, Route 37, Route 38, and Route 39
Normal Trees: Hoothoot (50%), Exeggcute (20%), Ledyba (15%), Spinarak (15%)
Special Trees: Hoothoot (50%), Pineco (30%), Exeggcute (20%)

Route 33, Route 42, and Azalea Town
Normal Trees: Spearow (65%), Aipom (20%), Ekans (15%)
Special Trees: Spearow (50%), Heracross (30%), Aipom (20%)

Route 43 and Lake of Rage
Normal Trees: Hoothoot (65%), Exeggcute (20%), Venonat (15%)
Special Trees: Hoothoot (50%), Pineco (30%), Exeggcute (20%)

Route 44
Normal Trees: Spearow (80%), Aipom (20%)
Special Trees: Spearow (50%), Heracross (30%), Aipom (20%)

Ilex Forest
Normal Trees: Hoothoot (50%), Pineco (30%), Noctowl (10%), Butterfree (5%), Beedrill (5%)
Special Trees: Hoothoot (60%), Caterpie (15%), Weedle (15%), Metapod (5%), Kakuna (5%)

Feel free to take this information with a grain of salt, as long as you at least investigate it.

Additional errors that I found:

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/route26.shtml#gs

In the listing for "Headbutt on Special Trees", it lists Kakuna as having a 5% encounter rate in Silver. Actually, that should be Beedrill there, not Kakuna.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/route27.shtml#gs

In the listing for "Headbutt on Special Trees", it lists Kakuna as having a 5% encounter rate in Silver. Actually, that should be Beedrill there, not Kakuna.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/powerplant.shtml#4th

You forgot to mention the Dugtrio-for-Magneton trade in HG/SS.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/route31.shtml#4th

In the listing for Headbutt, it says that Pineco can only be found on Route 31 in HeartGold. Pineco can be found on Route 31 in both HeartGold and SoulSilver.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/route46.shtml#4th

In the listing for Headbutt, it says that Ekans can be found with Headbutt on Route 46 in HeartGold and SoulSilver. Ekans can only be found with Headbutt in Crystal; that should be Spearow there, not Ekans.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/goldenrodcity.shtml#4th

The Spearow that you get is actually obtained in the gatehouse, which is part of Route 35 (I checked with the Pokégear map). As such, Spearow should be listed in Route 35, not Goldenrod City.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/goldenrodunderground.shtml#4th

In HG/SS, the Goldenrod Underground is called the Goldenrod Tunnel.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/mt.silver.shtml#hgss-2f

Gyarados is the only Pokemon listed under Super Rod for the second floor of Mt. Silver in HG/SS, but the encounter rate is listed as 63%. There should be another slot for Seaking, with the encounter rate for Seaking being 37%.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/shininglighthouse.shtml

It's just called the Lighthouse, not the Shining Lighthouse. There is an alternate name, but the alternate name is the Glitter Lighthouse.

Another thing about my post above, the Rocket Grunt with Zubat, Grimer, and Golbat is also on F4, not F3, and the Rocket Grunt with Raticate and Koffing is on F3 not F4.
