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.

Theres sompthing wrong here, arceus created sinnoh and ranzze. but bullbapidia says MAYBE THE EARTH. then garentina's name was never to be spoken for "resons" to the point it was forgoten but without the reverse world the real world would never seurvive then sologalao and lunala created alola so what about arceus creating the world again...i thought so......... also the games mangas and animes exist side by side in a multyverse

XD & Colosseum were not made by game freak. They're irrelevant. Also they came out in the early 2000s, only had up to hoenn generation, so they couldn't be the latest.

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.
