The Pokemon Timeline
« on: November 14, 2017, 19:16 »
   Building a timeline for the Pokémon universe is really hard, like, ridiculously hard, but with some thinking I think I've managed to do it.
(I'm excluding Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon because of a couple reasons I won't get into right now)

Year ?????      -Arceus and the Unown come into existence and create everything.

Year ?????2    -Giratina is banished to the Distortion World because he doesn't know how to use his powers properly.

Let's skip ahead several thousand years and get to the good stuff.

1980                -Modern Pokéballs are invented.    -The first Porygon is created.

1987                -Team Rocket is founded by then Gym Leader of Viridian City, Giovanni.

1989                -Dr. Fuji, working with Team Rocket, discover that Mews are indeed real and capture one. Several failed experiments later, Mewtwo is born, and wreaks havoc upon Team Rocket's Cinnabar lab.  Dr. Fuji, overcome with guilt that he created a monster, takes Mew to an island so far away from everything, it's called "Faraway Island" and buries the map he used to get there in the Hoenn Region.

February 27th. 1996       -11 year old Red and Blue receive their first Pokémon. Meanwhile, Teams Magma and Aqua split, pursuing their own goals.

October 15th, 1996         -Red takes down Team Rocket. Giovanni then abandons his son, Silver so he could focus on how to bring it back.

November 21st, 1996     -Gym Leader Norman (Then of Olivine City) gets transferred to Petalburg Town in Hoenn. Top student Jasmine takes  over the Olivine Gym.  The events of Emerald take place over a year.

November 21st, 1999     -The events of Crystal take place over a year and a half, Platinum takes place shortly after the Lake of Rage incident.

September 18th, 2004    -The events of White take place over 9 months. (Assumes White is canon)

June 23rd, 2006              -The events of White 2 & X/Y take place over 11 months.

November 18th, 2008     -The events of Sun/Moon take place over 13 months.

That's it, my version of the Pokémon timeline. Leave anything I forgot in a reply.
The only qualifications a game has to be to get on this timeline are it has to be able to connect and trade with the main series games (or cause something to happen within the game)  Excludes Pokémon Box and Stadium titles.

Well i dont know how you figured any of this out, so not really anyway to disprove it. I will say though that im pretty sure the whole "team rocket created mewtwo" thing was anime canon, and their connection in the games is tenuous at best.

I realized I forgot X and Y, they take place at the same time as White 2

EDIT: You can also ask me to explain something.

apparently US/UM is set two years after the originals despite just being a remake, according to various ingame texts

edit: also, iirc jasmine actually caught and evolved an onix. didn't she used to be a rock pokemmon trainer?

The manga is not canon and I'm excluding USUM from this timeline.

If "the manga is not canon" is Re: Jasmine, one of the NPCs in the lighthouse confirms she used to have an Onix, iirc it's a Gentlemen in HGSS?
