First big revelation - Protagonist and Rival's fathers are some kind of reincarnation of Red and Green from Pallet Town. Don't even try to believe that they are the original canon Red and Green, it will just hurt your head. They just happen to have the same names and the same kind of clusterfuck rivalry because apparently in the Pokémon world pairs of people like that are just born once in a while. This is also why I felt free to give Red an original design. You'll learn more about Green's family soon.
When you meet your rival at Gravel Canyon, he doesn't tell you any of this, I think. You find out by
What I learned from this page: You can only paint so many skies and rocks a day and stay sane.

Yeeaahhh I think that's what the game wanted to imply, but it doesn't even match up with the game's own timeline and what it says about their families. I see it more like an AU where they were born in Rijon instead.
