Errors in geography 

During the final battle it shows Mount Fuji directly next to Tokyo. In reality Mount Fuji is 130 km away from Tokyo and can easily be overlooked, even on a clear day.

When Shao Industries Shanghai HQ is introduced for the first time on screen, a map displayed on the left pinpoints the location somewhere near Weihai, a relatively small coastal city in Shandong province of China. The actual location of Shanghai is about 700 km south from Weihai, on the eastern seaboard and mouth of the Yangtze river.

Factual errors 

When Gipsy Avenger reached the maximum height with the rocket boost, Jake and Amara should have become unconscious, as the Conn-Pod is damaged and exposes them to the low-pressure environment.

Plot holes 

The film posits that the Precursors' ultimate plan was to reach Mount Fuji and all the cities they leveled were just in the way. This makes no sense, as the kaiju attacked cities all across the Pacific, most of which are in the complete opposite direction.

Put simply, Stacker Pentecost never had a son. He said his adopted daughter Mako Mori, was "all he had" in Pacific Rim (2013). Jake Pentecost was never mentioned, seen, or even hinted at in Pacific Rim (2013) or any of the comics.

Jake Pentecost says in a pep talk that when he was a kid, he "jumped into a Jaeger". a character asks how far he got, and he finally answers "a few steps". It is impossible that he got into the Jaeger at all, as they require an entire team to start them up, not to mention that he would need to be wearing a special suit with the modifications installed by another team. Without this suit he would of not been able to connect to the Jaeger at all.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

When the surprise attack occurs at Sydney Harbor, a rogue Jager rises from the water directly in front of the Sydney Opera House. Sydney Harbor is not a deep water harbor and is less than 50 feet deep near the Opera House. Jagers are nearly 300 feet tall, so it would be impossible to conceal a Jager in that location.
