Hoopa

And that's what the portals with the legendary Pokemon in them are. Hoopa is tearing open holes between dimensions and you are literally stealing legendary Pokemon from other places in space and time.

[Not the guy you were replying to]
Has anyone ever told you that people like you are the ones who are actually ruining the franchise?
Pokémon is about the experience as a whole, just because a game doesn't have, say, gym leader rematches, doesn't mean it's fucking shit.
Also, this lore is cool as fuck and if you don't think so, well, you happen to be quite retarded.

His "satiety" does not change a damn thing.
Nothing an American player of the game does will ever change how the next ones will be.

>inb4 >falling for the bait

>>21812746
I can't see Pokemon even doing much with the concept, I just hate the fact that you can't mention multiverses without people bringing up Infinite, which not only was far from the first story to heavily utilize different dimensions but also did it terribly to boot.

Note the "all."

>>
>>21813215
Gen1/2 are their own timeline
>>
>>21813215
Or
Timeline 1: Original games
Timeline 2: Third Versions
Timeline 3: Remakes
>>
>>21813120
Eh, maybe so, but they left enough leeway for it to work, and now they're actively making it that way what with Windwaker connecting directly to Ocarina and Twilight Princess also serving as an alternate timeline direct sequel. Skyward Sword is the be-all, end-all beginning unless they make like a SUPER prequel where you play the original champion of Hylia, but that would be a bit bittersweet, as that didn't have a good end.

Either way, the classic games don't really fit 100% to a continuity, but Nintendo is trying their damnedest to work with them, and every new entry is actively placed into that timeline somewhere. Pokemon probably did the same thing. Personally, I give zero shits where a pokemon game takes place in a timeline, because it's not exactly known for deep, emotional story-telling. Zelda has become known for that over time, so it does. Apples and Oranges friend.

If you believe in rby > gsc then by default must also agree that FrLg > HgSs

If so, then the fact that trading between rse and frlg mentions long distance as opposed to time means they belong relatively close in time.

Bw and bw2 are direct sequels with a grown up caitlin from platinum. Cynthia also mentions the protag from platinum in unova.

>>21813228
Actually the pokemon games had a defined cannon until gen 6

I think Masuda was the one who said the order

Anyway only gen 1/2 were in a separate cannon, and that's because they changed the engine completely and made remakes

The cannon was like this

Original:

Red/Blue/Green

(Yellow is non cannon and was fan service for the anime)

Two Years Later

Gold/Silver/Crystal*


Man Timeline:

Fire Red/Leaf Green
Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald*

Five Years Later

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum*
Heart Gold/Soul Silver

Unknown gap of time

Black/White

Two Years Later

Black2/White2

*The "middle" version of the game is considered the cannon story

Also, the Ranger games and the two Colosseum games fit into the timeline as well.

What is probably going to happen is they'll use X/Y and ORAS to jump off an alternate timeline to remake the other games.
My guess would be Kanto and Sinnoh sometime on the new 3ds.

And I think Genius Sonority is doing another Colosseum like game for the wiiu

Actually it just dawned on me

Looker was in X/Y and they had a few references to past games, with that art museum and whatnot.

I suspect just for the sake of ORAS they came up with a reason in the lore to remake it.
Basically by stating that ORAS is an alternate reality they can get away with remaking it and connecting it to the main timeline, and other remakes without negating past events.

A clever little loophole that allows them to do more future side stories and remakes, but continue the main storyline.

>>21813483
It's cannon red caught all the kanto pokemon in his time.

Yellow is simply non cannon because of jessie/james/meowth
>>
The Battle Frontier wasn't built in this universe yet
>>
>>21813483
I don't understand why people call Yellow non-canon. Story-wise it had extremely minor differences; it just had some extra characters here and there that alluded to the anime. That's it. The main story is still exactly the same as R/G/B.

Entei/Raikou/Suicune use their original GSC music. Lugia and Ho-Oh use their HGSS music.

In other words, Hoopa stole Entei/Raikou/Suicune from the Old universe and stole Ho-Oh/Lugia from the Main universe.
>>
>>21813616
Technically they're both alternates of each other, since we have no proof RSE was the "original" timeline.
>>
Makes sense due to your pokemon being older than the ones before the original trainer began his or her own journey. Pokemon is in a loop circle.

If nothing else, this explains the existence of multiple singular Pokemon, like the multiple Mewtwo running around.

Just about every time I make the desicsion to post on /vp/, one of my first three or so posts ends up being a GET. Of course, this is on a board that moves fast enough for everyone to see dubs or better at least once in a day. That and, you know, this board isn't bothered much by such things.

All it means is that those minor differences didn't happen into the main timeline of the universe.

7 is the absolute minimum, because Unova Rocket guy has to go home, knock up a chick, and have the child grow up far enough that they no longer use the Kindergartener sprite.

why does everyone seem to think that XY is included in the separate cannon or ORAS?

there's no evidence to suggest that. in XY's universe mega evolution is something that is central to and was discovered in kalos. from what i've heard of ORAS, mega evolution is tied somehow to rayquaza.

i propose that XY is in the same universe as RBYGSCRSEDPPtBWBW2, and the only one in a separate universe is ORAS

No, it was created because of a cannon shot 3000 years ago by AZ. Apparently it hit a meteorite, the stones mutated and became the mega stones. And I believe there's where they make the connection.

To be fair, they never really explained why Magnemite was suddenly part steel, and the emergence of dark types. I don't think they'll explain the reason why some pokemon are fairy types.

At the end of Episode Delta the plan is to teleport the asteroid to the RSE dimension, but Zinnia explains that the ultimate weapon from the war 3000 years ago was never built in that dimension and Mega Evolution never became a thing.

Er, what are the other post game events that are canon? Red catching Mewtwo(?), etc.

I haven't been paying too much attention to the leaks I heard something about Steven stepping down and Wallace taking over, but what happened to you? Is it that you basically step down as soon as you become champ and Steven is "still" the champion? Or is it that Steven stepping down and Wallace taking over is not exactly canon?

Sidequest. For something to be part of the main plot post-E4, it has to be a scenarized or scripted at least to a certain extent.

Meteorite. Fairies are all aliens. Look at Clefairy. When the fairy meteorite crashed on Earth however many years ago, it spread particles around the world that carried some alien mutation gene that mutated shit into fairy type Pokemon as well as ultimately becoming a part of what made previous Gen pokemon into fairies too.

In Pokemon Space you go to the moon to find out the origin of Fairy Types.

Exactly my thoughts, Black and White happen in alternate storylines and somehow they connect because the dimensions are too close.

I don't think you have to think about it that deeply. I like the explanation that they're "different tellings of the same story". Whichever way you experienced it is your version of the story.
>>
>>21816192
That would explain the differences in wild pokemon between games as well as the newly introduced minor plot differences, and third versions. So I guess we need to go back to >>21814751 and split it up a bunch now.
>>
>>21816192
Nah, one of the versions always seems to take priority as far as priority goes, usually the third. In GSC uses the name "Red" when you encounter him, so that's presumably the one that every sequel follows.
>>
>>21816255
No need, we could just read it as an implied split due to having dual versions.
>>
>>21816255
>So I guess we need to go back to >>21814751 and split it up a bunch now.
A more accurate version of the timeline would have GSC each forking out of Red, Blue, and Yellow. So there's 9 stories in Universe A.

Things get confusing in Universe B because you have FR/R, FR/S, FR/E, LG/R, LG/S, and LG/E, and each of those combinations leads to six stories: HG/D, HG/P, HG/Pt, SS/D, SS/P, SS/Pt. And each of those 36 stories leads to either Black or White, so that's 72 stories in Universe B.
