With the Serebii's World Map in OR/AS, are Colosseum and Ranger complete canon now?
For those who are a bit lost, a world map from this very site was used in OR/AS as a picture frame in one of Dewford Town's very bland houses. This was checked some time around the pair of game's release.

Now, if we have Orre and the Pokemon Ranger regions appearing in a main game even though this map wasn't made by GameFreak directly, does it constitute those games as full on canon now? It could be argued before since Pokemon from Colosseum for instance could be brought in Gen. 3, and now Gen. 6, and if my memory serves me right there was a ribbon created in Colosseum that still exists in the main series. Almia is listed as a caught location in Gen. 4 games if you bring in Darkrai from Ranger (I believe, never played those games). I guess it's safe to say that the Ranger/Colosseum storylines fully exist in the main series now? What do you think?
Can't think of anything witty to write here.
