Mistakes on Serebii.net V2

The paragraph about the Johto Starters should be re-worded slightly because on Silver's starter changes. His other 5 pokémon are the same no matter what starter he has.

Also, the part about activation to be confirmed under the Hoenn starters needs to be removed.

On the shiny leaf page, there are 2 mistakes:

1. Some natures have route 12 listed, but there is no grass there.
2. It says that your chances of getting a shiny leaf will decrease the more you have. Actually, there are five separate kinds of shiny leaves. Each pokemon can get each kind once. Different types are found in different locations.

You can find Hoothoot by using Headbutt in Ecruteak City, but I don't see it listed here.

You can find Spearow by using Headbutt in Celadon City, but I don't see it listed here.

You can find Tangela by using Headbutt in Fuchsia City, Route 12, Route 13, Route 14, Route 15, Route 18, and Route 21, but I don't see it listed in any of those pages under Headbutt.

For Gym Leader rematches, to get the phone numbers of Falkner and Erika, Janine and Jasmine must not be in the fighting dojo, as they will not appear. Also, I'm pretty sure Daisy needs to massage your pokemon 7 times to get Blue's number, not 5.

In Route 4, the Pokemon found with Hoenn Sound are Linoone and Whismur, and the Pokemon found with Sinnoh Sound are Bidoof and Buizel.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/route2.shtml#4th

Route 2 actually has 2 separate encounter lists in HeartGold and SoulSilver - one for the southern half and one for the northern half. I don't know all of the differences between the two, but I know that during the daytime in HeartGold, Butterfree can only be found in the northern half, while Metapod can only be found in the southern half.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/ceruleancave.shtml#hgss-2f

There is no water in Cerulean Cave 2F; ergo, you can't find Pokemon there by surfing or fishing.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/mt.silver.shtml#hgss-2f
http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/mt.silver.shtml#hgss-3f

The "Walking" encounter list for 1F Top belongs under 3F, and the "Walking" encounter list for 3F applies to a small room accessible from 1F that isn't even mentioned in Pokearth. The "Walking" encounter list for 1F belongs under 1F Top. Also, there is no water in 1F Top, so you can't find Pokemon there by surfing or fishing. In addition to that, 1F and 2F are part of the same room, with the same wild Pokemon; the Pokemon found in this large room match that of the list under 2F.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/mt.silver.shtml#hgss-4f

There is no water here, so you can't find Pokemon by fishing or using Surf.

There is no water here, so you can't find Pokemon by fishing or using Surf.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/kanto/saffroncity.shtml#hgss-fightingdojo

Falkner uses Swellow, not Wingull.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/darkcave.shtml#hgss-route45

The Dunsparce swarm is only available in the Route 31 side.

I noticed some errors with the fishing lists for HG/SS. No, this isn't connected to the lack of Seaking in that area of Mt. Silver that I mentioned some time ago; this has to do with the reported percentages. I'll mention a couple other errors as well.

With the Super Rod in these areas, Magikarp's encounter rate is 6% and Seaking's encounter rate is 4%, but they were reported as 7% and 3%, respectively. Also, the Dunsparce swarm only occurs on the Route 31 side of Dark Cave, and even though it's possible to find Pineco by using Headbutt in Route 25, I don't see it listed.

Guess what? You can find Pokemon in Route 4 by surfing and fishing. The Pokemon found in Route 4 by surfing and fishing are the same as those in Cerulean City.
 
I've mentioned this about five times, and it hasn't been fixed.

The weird off-color Purugly sprite was never fixed. Here's a screenshot if you don't believe me.

http://i39.*******.com/24bsopc.jpg

Look at the non-shiny D/P sprite. The chin isn't supposed to be black like that. Also if you see my avatar the chin is green. My guess is that when you photoshopped the white background out of the sprite before uploading it to the site, you accidentally photoshopped out some of the white in Purugly's body. Anyway, instead of being white, the chin and other parts of the body seem to be erased completely so you see whatever the background color is. If you switch to the psychic-type style on the forums you can really see where the problem is in my avatar. It's also on Purugly's belly, its back, and a spot on its side too.

"Jessoe gets her fifth ribbon"

Right at the bottom of the list of events, you spelled Jessie as "Jessoe".
Also speaking of Jessie, you say that she got her fifth ribbon, but I don't remembr seeing a mention of ribbon 3 or 4. There are only 3 Ribbons listed on her Bio page as well.

Speaking of Jessie's bio page, her description says that she still hasn't won any Pokemon Contests. This needs to be updated.

sorry for double posting, but I just found this.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/route38.shtml#4th

Lass Dana's second team (first rematch team) uses a lvl 31 Psyduck, not a Golduck. It doesn't eveolve into Golduck until set 3.



I posted these over a week ago, and they still haven't been fixed. I don't meant to nag or anything, it's just that it seems that they could be fixed very quickly and with little effort.
