* DidNotDoTheResearch: A minor case, but Mayor Es Cade is referred to as being mayor of the whole Orre region. He's only the mayor of Phenac City, and the whole Orre region has a governor, not mayor.
** The author addressed this in the next chapter.
** Another minor case is having one of Folly's Whismur one of the two that previously battled Wes, as it said 'not you guys again' to Umbreon and Espeon, but it's a different one because it's a male, while the two Whismur's that battled Wes the first time were female.
*** Genders of opposing Pokemon have been known to switch despite the Pokemon being the same in the Genius Sonority games because they're randomised if they are not snaggable (e.g. Zook's Zangoose in XD can change gender between the first battle and the second when it is snaggable, but clearly Zook does not have two shadow Zangoose). The Whismur would not have pre-defined genders so it's a matter of chance of what gender they have - so the same one being in both battles is perfectly possible if it appeared that way for the author. (And as the battle in the story was breezed over, maybe a third Whismur had been sent out after the first two?) Bit too nitpicky there.
