Timeline

Pre-Series

  • As God began his creation of the universe, Arceus hatches from an egg to assist Him. Arceus then creates Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, giving them power over time, space, and antimatter respectively. Giratina, as punishment for its destructive nature, is sent by Arceus to live in the Reverse World. Dialga and Palkia then succeed in helping God and Arceus in creating the universe and the world and retreat into their own dimensions afterwards, with a point of access being at the ancient Spear Pillar in Sinnoh.
  • Arceus creates Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf, giving knowledge, emotion, and willpower to all living things that come into existence in the Pokémon world. The three dive into caves at the bottom of Lake Verity, Lake Valor, and Lake Acuity in Sinnoh, giving them the name "lake guardians".
  • Kyogre is formed by the pressure in the deep sea trenches, Groudon is formed deep inside the Earth, likely from hardened magma and earth, and Rayquaza is formed by the minerals of the ozone layer. Rayquaza proceeds to fly around in the ozone layer, occasionally coming to rest at Sky Pillar.
  • Kyogre and Groudon then proceed to fill the sea and create land, respectively. A chance meeting turns the two into rivals, and a conflict for dominance over the Pokémon world begins. This battle continues until Rayquaza quells it, causing Kyogre and Groudon to retreat to special caverns, where they rest until the events of many years later. The Red and Blue Orbs are created to prevent the reawakening of Kyogre and Groudon, and are left at Mt. Pyre for safekeeping. At this time, Mew may have been plentiful and lived in large numbers.
  • Landmasses such as Mt. Coronet are created, and Regigigas moves the continents, forming the regions, and creates the three golems, Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, out of clay, ice, and magma, respectively.
  • The Sinnoh region is created around Mt. Coronet. During this violent procedure, Stark Mountain is created due to shifts in the crust of the world and Heatran is formed in a pool of lava. Arceus creates the Adamant, Lustrous, and Griseous Orbs before falling into a deep slumber.
  • 2,000,000 years ago, the first Pokémon appear. The earliest known prehistoric Pokémon existed at this time. It is possible that the Mew population may have decreased at this stage, as they slowly gave way to other Pokémon species. The first humans also appeared around this time.
  • 300 million years ago: An ancient version of Genesect was born. Kabuto and Kabutops lived in the sea.
    • Team Plasma later used Genesect's DNA to create an infinitely stronger version of it with cybernetic technology.
  • 100 million years ago: Species such as Aerodactyl, Lileep, Cranidos, Shieldon, Tirtouga, and Archen were supposedly widespread. They all ultimately went extinct, but not before Archen gave rise to bird Pokémon and Tirtouga gave rise to turtle Pokémon.
    • A fossil is found millions of years later in Hoenn and revived scientifically by the Devon Corporation.
  • 10,000 years ago: During the last Ice Age, the Mamoswine population flourished, then decreased when the Ice Age ended.
  • At some point in the distant past, the Magikarp population mutates due to unknown reasons and becomes weaker.
  • At some point after the Iron Age, Regigigas is sealed away in the Snowpoint Temple, and Regirock, Regice and Registeel are sealed away at various points across the Hoenn region after years of human worship.
  • The Relic items are created.

He lived for thirty-three years, preaching for the final three before he is killed by the Roman Empire for believing to be a rebel against their authority.
  • Hoenn is plagued by meteor showers. A meteor turns the homeplace of the Draconid people into Meteor Falls.

  • The earliest known system for writing is developed and used at the Ruins of Alph, Tanoby Ruins, and Solaceon Ruins. Archaeologists are currently unsure whether the nearly identical Unown preceded or succeeded the writing system, but it is assumed they share some sort of connection.
  • The Farfetch'd population decreases due to overhunting.
  • 1,000 years ago, a war breaks out in the form of clash between the Hero of Truth and the Hero of Ideals, pitting Reshiram and Zekrom against each other and results in the devastation of the Kingdom of the Vale in Unova. Using power burrowed from Victini, the King of the People of the Vale moves his castle from the Kingdom of the Vale to the site where Eindoak Town will later be founded, then dies, trapping Victini in the area.
  • A thousand years after the events at Meteor Falls, a meteor struck Hoenn, creating Sootopolis City. Groudon and Kyogre reawakened to fight over the wellspring of primal energy which came from it. The people of Hoenn wished on Rayquaza to save them, and using the meteor, Rayquaza performed the world's first Mega Evolution and calmed the two. Sky Pillar was built in Rayquaza's honour, and the Draconid people promised to pass down the prophecy that in 1000 years the meteor would return.
