  • Deoxys is stated to be a Legendary Pokémon rather than a Mythical Pokémon.
    • A fact listed on Deoxys' page is that "Deoxys used to be a Mythical Pokémon. Now it is categorized as Legendary". This misconception is most likely due to Deoxys being available to be caught in-game in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's Delta Episode.
  • Mewtwo and Mega Mewtwo Y's category are listed as "New Species Pokémon" rather than "Genetic Pokémon".
  • The book incorrectly implies that Ho-Oh gives Ash memories of his first day as a Trainer when it technically doesn't.
