And another, from the Psydex main index page thing.

Quote:

Unless I'm horribly mistaken, that should be Generation.

This isn't one the site, it's on the forums. This can be deleted if it's not needed.

That last comma shouldn't be there.

Edit: I guess I'll link to it, even though you'll know where it is.

There's a few errors on the 3rd Gen walkthroughs.

Sapphire/Ruby - VII

It says Electrode's encounter rate is the Sapphire/Ruby Symbol
"...plan wisely, and should be able to defeat them."

FireRed/LeafGreen - XIV

"go to the Seafom Islands..."

FireRed/LeafGreen - XVI

"the opposite elemetn..."

FireRed/LeafGreen Sevii Islands - II

It displays Fresh Water twice.

*All fixed, 8/11*

Oh and I'd like to see a Great Marsh map if possible. [:

On the TechDex description for Rest, it says "Pokemon who have Early Bird will wake up one early turn." It should read "will wake up one turn early."

On the R/B walkthrough, located here, it says "entrace", but it should say "entrance". (in the first paragraph)

On the IV Calculator although it says at the top that IV's and DV's are different, when it displays the IV chart it says "Possible DV's".

I was going through the psydex for no real reason and Kec's emerald dex data caught my eye - It says it will change it's colors if it gets "started", I assume it should read "startled"

-Fixed, 1/6/09

Not really a typo, but it's been bothering me for a while.

Caught a few in the Status Effects Guide.

Under the heading "Status Effects":
"One only status effect at a time may be inflicted on a Pokemon."
It should be "Only one". Also, I think the sentence would read better if it were "Only one status effect may be inflicted on a Pokemon at a time."

Under the heading "Attraction":
"Attract is that only move that can cause attraction, but a..."
I assume that the first "that" is supposed to be "the".

Under the heading "Trapping":
"There are two types of moves that trap: the type is temporary trapping."
I believe it was meant to be "the first type is temporary trapping."

Under the heading "Uncontrollable":
"...during attacks that last for more than one turn: excluding in-game Generation I battles..."
I don't understand the use of the colon here. A semicolon would probably work better here or maybe splitting the sentence in two. Come to think of it, the same probably goes for the sentence above.

"...instantly use one attack that needs to charge up; however, this item does not..."
I don't think punctuation is needed where the semicolon was used.

3/14: Fixed what I felt warranted fixing.

for the move Pay Day it says "The player does not lose money if the opponent uses Pay Day but the player wins the battle." I found it on this page, however it may occur on any other page containing the move Pay Day http://www.psypokes.com/dex/psydex/052/all

I realize I can't really see right now, but where is the typo in this?

This really isnt a typo but it is really annoying.

http://www.psypokes.com/dex/index.php

If you scroll down to where it says Movesets it is not in bold as all the other names are.

Registeel has been misspelt as "Regsteel".

Not a typo but an addition to the DPP Items list...

For the Macho Brace, it is correct that in DP you have to show three different types of Burmy, but in Platinum you actually have to bring two Combees, a male and a female.

Another reminder that the two typos I submitted above still have not been fixed...

http://www.psypokes.com/lab/shiny.php
From the shiny guide, scroll down to "However, multiple zone 4 patches which are in the same row or column, should be avoided! These red patches are not safe because although they are zone 4, and in the same row or column as one another. The yellow patch is safe because it does not share a row or column with another zone 4 patch." From my experiences in chaining, one patch from each zone will shake. A zone cannot have more than one patch shake in it, so the thing about the red patches is invalid, since it never actually happens.

http://www.psypokes.com/dp/items.php
Zoom Lens increases the accuracy of each move by 20% of its original value. It has nothing to do with critical hits. Scope Lens is the item that increases critical hit ratios.

Out of curiosity, and because I didn't see it, is there a place to report any bugs on the main site? I would think there should be a topic for that...

A minor technical note certainly, but I'm taking full advantage of the site!

On Dugtrio's RBY moveset, the four moves should be Slash, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Body Slam. Reason being, whoever wrote the verdicts (BTW, thank you to that member, I'm laughing really hard at most of them...) mentioned Earthquake, but the slots appear like this:

1) Slash
2) Slash
3) Rock Slide
4) Body Slam

AEPMT

-fixed: 8/22
