Pokemon History Timeline by AcePokemonTrainer Pokemon History Timeline by AcePokemonTrainer
This is a timeline of every major event in Pokemon history (following the game canon, a.k.a. the main canon) beginning with Arceus' hatching and ending with the most recent event (Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness). Please comment.

I HAVE NO INTENTION OF UPDATING THIS TO INCLUDE GENERATIONS V AND VI! I simply do not like those generations and will remain of a fan of the first four.
Other FAQs:
- Mystery Dungeon, the anime, and the manga are entirely separate from this canon.
- This is a very broad history. The different villain teams are not important enough on their own to get that much detail listed. Instead, they are a part of the brief descriptions of each game.

The Big question is, How could Arceus hatch from an Egg, when he have no parents? Thats why I think Arceus is like a God of the Pokémon World. Arceus created the Universe then the Pokémon World and yes Mew was the first Pokémon that Arceus created. Then Arceus created Dialga and Palkia, Dialga makes the Time and Palkia makes the Space.. What happened first and what happened next of the happening of Dialga and Palkia is a mystery... But your version is still good and need some corrections of what I was saying...

Well, because that came from the Library in Canalave. Well, in most bookshelves in Sinnoh you can read some myths about Sinnoh, one of them talking about Arceus if I remember correctly.

My Theory is that Arceus is the god of the Pokémon World and it created first the Universe then the World and then first Mew, then it created Dialga and Palkia; Dialga makes the Time and Palkia the Space and what happened next to this is really a mystery...

You mean GameFreak inc. (They did that because when you look at all their Pokédex Entries they made, the most are really talking about death, sh** and suicide, look at the Entries of Hypno, Drowzee, all the ghost Types have Entries, like they eat the souls. And GameFreak write stuff in the Pokedex like "the Pokémon eats Pokémon". Then there are some Entries that makes non-sense like Kadabra the Entrie of Firered "One Morning a child evolved into KADABRA after scientific experiments" + Kadabra has headache after using its psychic moves... "from the first I thought that people could saw an Abra as a Child in a dark place in an abandoned house, but for that they must be really dumb and it reminds me of the culture of Halloween".

"I don't agree with the second entry of Kadabra and Psyduck too, because just JUST the human people can get a headache after using its whole psychic power, the Psychic Pokémon has a psychic energy in its body that don't let them become Ill".  I saw many Pokémon Theorie videos on Youtube and I think that we shouldn't believe in the Entries as they are written and when making our own game, trying to modify it because Pokémon don't eat themselves, my theory is that in the Pokémon World there must be another Biomaterials that let the Pokémon survive, it's like a substitution for meat, for the Pokémon. And there could live Animals (just vegetarian) like cow, pig/hog, goat/sheep, Fish's (no sharks, and dangerous sea animals) and the people in the Pokémon World love to eat them, they also care of them and make many of them so they never get out of extinction, that's my Theory. No Wars, they have their own Religion to the Pokémon God who created the humans too and they have political and severe rules, so that Killers doesn't exist in the Pokémon World. Also Illness it's not to sickly, so bad-Illness like cancer, depression, psychological Illness, tumor, diabetes, brain-Illness, heart, all kind of really Killing-Illness don't exist in the Pokémon World. It just exist the following: Headache, got a cold, (no pain of monthlies, just getting them as normally it could exist Underwear-packs that she buys and wear it and when its full, she wear another one, it could also exist the same but for the vaginal discharge in a daily life of a 12 years old girl) That's just my Theory, I hope you like it :)

My theory on that is that the pokemon trozei, ranger, colliseum, and main series are all part of one world taking place in different regions, while PMD is basically Pokemon heaven.

Hey guys, long time no see! Just to be clear, I have no intention of updating this timeline. While I have played White, White 2, X, and Alpha Sapphire; I am not really a fan of Generations V and VI. Generations I-IV were my favorites, so this is the timeline I choose to stick with.

Also, for all those making references to the show and movies, the anime is not canon to the game timeline. So, for example, the events leading up to and including Destiny Deoxys are irrelevant to this timeline.
