If anyone of you have noticed, the mainstream Pokemon games have 2 different timelines.
The first timeline follows Red from R/B/G/Y becoming a Pokemon Master and defeating Team Rocket. 3 years later, Ethan from G/S becomes a Pokemon Master, defeats Team Rocket, and encounters the "Strongest trainer in the world" Red. Another 3 years later, Brendan/May from R/S move from Johto to Hoenn and start their Pokemon Master Quest while saving Hoenn from either Team Magma or Team Aqua. 4 years later, society has developed even further and Lucas/Dawn from D/P aim to become a Pokemon Master like their predecessors and save Sinnoh and the Pokemon world as we know it from the incredibly evil Team Galactic. Another 4 years after this, Hilbert/Hilda from B/W join their friends Cheren and Bianca to become Pokemon Masters, complete the Pokedex, and save the world and all Pokemon within it from Team Plasma and their leader N. Finally, 2 years later, Hilbert/Hilda have set off to find their friend N while Kyouhei/Mei from B2/W2 and their friend Hugh go off to become Pokemon Masters while countering the return of Team Plasma and the Shadow Triad.
The second timeline, which I believe is the true canon follows Red/Leaf from FR/LG and their childhood friend Blue try to become Pokemon Masters while ending the plans of Team Rocket. 3 years later, Gold/Kris(Crystal)/Lyra from HG/SS and their rival Silver go off to become Pokemon Masters, encounter Red from FR/LG and defeat the revived Team Rocket once and for all. Another 3 years later, Ruby/Sapphire move from the Johto region to the Hoenn region, meeting their new sick friend Wally and trying to become Pokemon Masters and Contest Coordinators. Their job isn't done yet because they also have to take down Team Magma and Team Aqua...at the same time, and conquering the new Battle Frontier. 2 years later, it's snowing in Sinnoh when Diamond/Platinum from Pt and their friend Pearl journey through Sinnoh to become Champions, defeat Team Galactic who plan to erase the current world and create anew, and save the world from being destroyed by the Distortion World. 2 Years later, Black/White and their childhood friends Cheren and Bianca journey to become Pokemon Masters, complete the Pokedex, and save the world and all Pokemon within it from Team Plasma and their leader N. Finally, 2 years later, Black/White have set off to find their friend N while Kyouhei/Mei from B2/W2 and their friend Hugh go off to become Pokemon Masters while countering the return of Team Plasma and the mysterious Colress.
Which timeline do you think the Pokemon games follow? Do you have a timeline that is different from what I think? Reply to the thread.
