    The seed thing I can understand (them being Seed Pokemon, after all), but the other three mess-ups are just goddamn hilarious.

    I got a Diamond and Pearl pokedex book from scholastic that got many evolutions wrong. For example:
    Drifloon=>Drifblim
    Glalie=>Froslass
    Hitmonlee=>Hitmontop/Hitmonchan
    Nothing=>Politoed
    In the Golbat family,the images of Zubat and Crowbat were switched. In the Pupitar family, the images of Larvitar and Tyranitar are switched. The images of Porygon and Porygon2 are switched throughout the book.
    I have dodged many things, but that is not why I am a dodger. I just like wearing striped shirts.

    You do realize that Drifloon actually does evolve into Drifblim, right?

    You are right. I looked at it again and saw that they got the pictures backwards and it got me confused. It is not the first time the book confused me.
    One more thing about the book, it has an article of every eeveelution but not one for Eevee itself.

    In a guide I got, it said that "There are one Unown for all the 29 letters in the alphabet". It was in Norwegian, and the Norwegian alphabet does have 29 letters, but the games don't use Æ, Ø or Å, since those letters are not used in modern English, I spend ages searching for Æ, Ø and Å. I hate that guide. I got all the other Unowns though.

    While I can't remember a clear example off the top of my head, the Pokemon Annuals (in the UK) have several errors when they do a written version of an anime episode. This isn't actually an example (the episode hadn't run in the UK at the time) but it would do something like saying Ash's Chimchar evolved into Infernape, even when the picture shows Monferno.

    I've collected tons of strategy guides for Pokemon games over the years. Each one has its fair share of typos and mistakes, and a few in particular are swarmed with them.

    I think my favorite one is actually neither a typo nor a mistake. It's from the official Diamond and Pearl guide - there's a picture of the stats page of a Manaphy egg, and guess where the stats page claim it was found from? The Mystery Zone. XD

    (NOTE: I looked at the rules, and didn't find anything on bumping topics. Tell me if what I'm doing is bad)

    Black and White have been out for a few weeks, so different types of guides should be out by now. + errors.

    I noticed in the guide made by the Pokemon Company International that Bulk Up is HM08. (The B/W Guide)

    I was appalled by the amount of mistakes in the Diamond/Pearl Guide. I can't remember specifics but I remember it was really bad.
