Search in the API is indeed in need of a big overhaul, this is planned and in our backlog, unfortunately it isn’t on our immediate roadmap and therefore not currently being worked on.
Apologies in the meantime, we will keep our API community up to date as soon as work on this feature begins.darklinkpower supported this idea ·

This seems to be an issue with the API itself and has been a bug for a while. It has affected Playnite's IGDB metadata plugin: https://github.com/JosefNemec/Playnite/issues/1719
There are constantly people reporting this issue but it's a bug with the API itself. The API doesn't return the same results as the webpage and has issues with special characters like accents (For example, pokémon), hyphens, etc.
