  • The book implies that the action of Professor Oak giving out a Pikachu (alongside the other starter Pokémon) is 'usual', which is an incorrect statement as it is known that Ash's Pikachu was a special case.
  • The book claims that "every major city has a Pokémon gym", which is not the case, as there are several major cities without gyms.
    • The book itself later calls Jubilife City the largest city in Sinnoh, which contradicts the prior claim, as it does not have a Pokémon gym.
  • At one point, the book insinuates that Gary does not care about his Pokémon, which is odd, as the book covers anime plot points all the way through Sinnoh, by which point it is well established that this is not the case.
