Pokemon - Ghost and Psychic Pokemon
In the episode where Sabrina's father tells Ash to retrieve a ghost Pokemon with the soul reason that ghost Pokemon are strong against psychic Pokemon, that is exactly the mistake.
In the gameboy Pokemon game, it's the other way around: Psychic pokemon are STRONG against ghost pokemon. Cast psychic on any ghost, and it will say "It's super effective!". These two slipups occur in
1) The episode with Sabrina and Haunter
2) The episode with Drowzee controlling all the Pokemon, and Officer Jenny uses a gastly to battle the drowzee
Special Requirements:
Episode with Sabrina and Haunter

In Pokémon Gold/Silver, a ghost-type attack (i.e, Lick) is super effective against psychic Pokémon, so technically, ghosts do well. Still, they are Poison- and Ghost-types, so they need to watch out for psychic attacks.

Don't you know that ghost Pokémon are NOT weak against psychic Pokémon? The ghost Pokémon in the game are also type Poison. Psychic Pokémon are super effective agaist Poison.

Well, there's a slip-up somewhere. Either this is Yellow time, and Lick doesn't do anything to Psychics (and Night Shade isn't worth writing home about at the level that a caught Haunter would probably be at, although if the Kadabra had used Reflect, it might do more than other attacks), so a ghost-type would fail miserably, or this is G/S time, and Ash should've caught a Houndour (which are nearer to Saffron than Pokemon Tower), since a Ghost still wouldn't have much of a chance (unless it was a Gengar with Confuse Ray and Shadow Ball), and Houndour would be practically invincible against Sabrina.

Gastly, Haunter and Gengar are part poison, making them weak against Psychic attacks. But ghost attacks are strong against psychics, the only problem being Lick is the only ghost attack that does more than a set amount of damage. However, all this will change in G/S, when the de-poisoned Trillix comes to town!

Out of the six PokéMon Ash carries with him, he only caught Prime-ape, Butter-free and Pidgeot. The others he keeps with Professor Oak, and he caught them.

Uh, Missingno, he meant the dog-like Pokémon from Gold and Silver versions called Houndour. O_o

And we all knew that Houou's real spelling is Ho-Oh. Did you see anyone on this site spell it "Houou"? Geez, I'm getting tired of this...

The thing I don't understand is, if the Pokedex say that there was no information on Ghost type Pokemon, then how did Brock know that they were strong against Psychic? And anyway, Kadabra could have had a lower experience level than Haunter- if you've seen the episode "School of Hard Knocks", you will have had that shoved into your brain alongside all the other Pokemon facts people expect you to remember.

Did I? I don't think I did. However, I called Misdreavus "Trillix" and got Piloswine mixed up with Quagsire. *Goes on a tirade of shuffling Japanese names*

I think I've found another Ghost PokéMon slip-up. The first time Ash saw Gastly was in, "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak", right? Ash's PokéDex has lots of information on Gastly and Ghost PokéMon. But when Ash catches a Haunter, his PokéDex has almost no information! Where did it go???

IT'S HAUNTER NOT HOUNDOUR! AND AND A WARNING ABOUT SPELLING: HOUOU'S REAL SPELLING IS HO-OH! Spelling Pokémon names in Gold and Silver is becoming a problem!

I said it before and I'm saying it again. He never caught Haunter. It just followed him. And after that, it decided to stay with Sabrina.
