When did the games happen in relation to each other? Like did Gen1/Gen3 and Gen2/Gen4 happen concurrently? Leaving Gen V as the future? Or was Gen 1 the future and Gen V the past? Or something else? Sometimes I hate the internet it destroys my preconceptions with information that is probably false.
So can someone explain or answer, or make some sense of what they think the time line of the main games is? I know it isn't something completely confirmed, but there are things I would like to know what most people consider as the "official storyline time line." I would prefer not to know how these conclusions are made, I have had enough of that for a lifetime. I would like to know simply after the remakes what is the Time Line between Generations.
What I want is simple Gen 1 -> Gen 2 etc. Where Gen 1 happened first and Gen 2 happened after a period of time. or if two generations happen concurrently like Gen 1/Gen 3 -> Gen 2/Gen 4. Again I really don't need the logic behind it, I just need somethings cleared up.
Before my expedition on Google and looking at some of the darker portions of the internet (you would be surprised where searching pokemon generation time line sends you on the internet.) I thought it went like this Gen 1 -> Gen 2 -> Gen 3 -> Gen 4 -> Gen 5. But now I am not so sure..Can someone ease my migrane and give me some useful information on this pretty please?
