Altering past and present I said, but yeah.
And B/W alternate realities are a tad extreme compared to other games, so I just wanted to make an excuse to blame Lucas and Dawn for everything.
Okay, scratch the Distortion World shenanigans creating an alternate timeline.
What about this then? Arceus lightshow of the universe and creation in order to get you a brand spankin new lvl 1 baby Giratina.
HG/SS is to blame for the split timeline
Some guy on Leddit was making a rant about how AZOTH was a plan to end the franchise, and I was just looking for Blissey Bases, so I decided to whip up this beauty.
R8, no h8, it's not b8.
AZOTH isn't the end of the Pokemon franchise, it's the end of…
The alternate dimension in which Gen 6 is CONFIRMED to occur in. During the Delta Episode, we're informed that Mega Evolutions are indeed not in the original game series. The next game, Pokemon Z, maybe, would have Zygarde purge the current dimension in order to remove the imbalance caused by the great amount of power generated by Mega Evolutions.
Even better, maybe Zygarde merges the old universe with the new one, allowing them to keep continuity, effectively retconning RSE and ORAS into one, in which ORAS overrides RSE in terms of plot/timeline. This would allow for Game Freak to explain why the anime series has Ash and Friends using Megas, they are simply in the merged timeline. Before the XY series, there was no Megas, and Kalos is just a Frenchy place. Then it's merged, Megas are discovered, and Ash moves there to find out more.
I think I've left a fair few plot holes in my idea, but it's too late to read over what I've said…
Anyways, that's how I think they'll retcon Megas into the universe, as we know that, by the way the anime is produced, Ash travels amongst these regions in the order in which we the viewer see them, so they can't just say 'WHOOPS! Turns out they were in RSE, you just weren't looking hard enough…'
I thought the implication was an entire universe was created and destroyed to give you that egg. And that's assuming it isn't non-canon because postgame.>>6862
Don't cross the streams. Anime is independent from the games are independent from the manga are independent from the spin-off games. Besides, it's looking like the latest movie will deal with Hoopa and its interdimensional shenanigans, wouldn't make sense if any hypothetic alternate anime universes were already merged. Crossover with Origins might be cool though.
Was Lt. Surge part of the war in Kalos? Was the war in Kalos the war that Pokemon Red and Blue were talking about?
