  • In the Pokémon Evolution section (page 50), the guide says that when breeding, male Pokémon can pass down moves they know that they can learn from TMs to hatched Pokémon that can also learn that TM. While this was true in previous generations, it is no longer the case in Generation VI.
  • In the Pokémon-Amie section (page 367), the guide says that Enjoyment can be increased when petting a Pokémon, but petting actually decreases a Pokémon's Enjoyment.
