    I'm a sucker for video game stories. I used to speculate about the Zelda timeline all the time, even though I hate the gameplay. But since that was fixed a long time ago, I'm going to talk about the Pokemon timeline.

    Here is the evidence of my theory:

    FR/LG is 3 years before HG/SS:
    Team Rocket explains it all.

    Pt is before B/W:
    Cynthia says that see has seen a person just like you in Black/White, which is almost certainly the main character of Platinum. Looker also says something, but I forgot.

    B/W is before B/W2:
    Bianca and Cheren will possibly mention someone from the previous games, and we've also received an official confirmation of it being a sequel. Besides, it has the number 2 on it.

    HG/SS is before Pt:
    OK, this might be a long shot, but hear me out. Jasmine, the Johto Steel-type Gym Leader, says in Platinum: "...I came from very far away because I wanted to get stronger. On the way, I met all sorts of people with their Pokemon." I think this is a slight hint that one of those people was the main character of Gold.

    HG/SS is before E:
    In the "special stone that gets Lati(o/a)s" event, someone from Hoenn (I GOT TO STOP FORGETTING!) says that you look familiar. Again, might refer to Emerald's main character

    Also, FireRed/LeafGreen and Emerald have some similarities. In conclusion my timeline is: FR/LG/E, HG/SS, Pt, B/W, and B/W2. Any questions/contradictions?

    I think it was like:

    RBY = RSE (same time, different parts of the world, maybe they didn't know about the other's existence at the time? That doesn't make sense to me.)
    GSC = DPPt (same as above)
    BW
    BW2

    Zeroneo has it there.

    Personally i never gave it much thought but Zeroneo's link pretty much explains it

    not really, like, some things in the remakes of g/s link with diamond/pearl, and ru/sa with fr/lg, but they still aren't really connected story wise. They just happen to take place in the same time period, or something.

    I think it's all just fan speculation, though. I could be wrong.

    People actually care about the Pokemon timeline? I mean, I'm a big fan of the Pokemon games but even I never really gave a crap about when the games took place.

    Kanto and Hoenn-based games are located at the same time.
    Johto and Sinnoh-based games are located 3 years after Kanto and Hoenn.
    BW is further in the future than Johto and Sinnoh.
    BW2 is 2 years after BW.

    I swear, I loled so hard.

    Meh as for a pokemon timeline, most people don't care (myself included), because it's not as mysterious and as interesting as something like say, the Zelda timeline.

    I believe it to some respect. I believe that Pt and HG/SS take place closely together, but not completely simultaneously. Maybe between you defeating her and the rematch she went to Sinnoh, I don't know. But it should be very close.

    The Zelda timeline doesn't even make sense. Pokemon really doesn't have much of a timeline either nor has anyone cared about it. All you know is that G/S/C take place after R/B/Y at least, everything else is pretty much in the air.

    It kind of does make more sense the more you analyze it... but I can't go deeper in the topic or else I'll have to make a new thread... Anyways, can someone redirect me to a good game with a good speculative content?
