It can't possibly be canon. Mewtwo couldn't have existed back then. --- Curreny anticipating: Sonic 4: Episode 2 (May), Pokemon Black 2/White 2 (Autumn), BioShock Infinite (October 16th) and Resident Evil 6 (November 20th)!

This, I wanted to believe that it is the past, but unless they get rid of Mewtwo, it's not happening. --- The most Important part of games for me is Music, Atmosphere, and Cold Colors. But I hate horror games.
Wouldn't that put people entirely out of the loop? there has been like what....4 or so Nobunga's Ambition games that actually crossed over from Japan?
Plus it would be slightly derivative if they suddenly shoved a bunch of Japanese figures from history and attempted to galvanize it into the main canon, it could've worked before the Franchise got adaption overdosed* and released G/S, but ya...
* Assuming that Nintendo anticipated that Pokemon wouldn't be that Popular, chances are that when they made the original Red and Green, it ACTUALLY took place within Japan and indirectly, the real world.
• the Main region is called Kanto, a region in Japan, • Lt Surge was said to be American • The burnt lab in Cinnabar mentions stuff about Mew being illusive in South America. (if i recall) • And not last but least (it's the last), iirc they mentioned Elephants in Gastly's Pokedex entry.
The reason it is hard to retcon out stuff like that is mostly due to Lt Surge's nationality being a larger thing in Japan, he has English phrases and quips and such, though the Elephants thing was mostly due to Fire Red/Leaf Green being faithful to the gameboy originals instead of writing new entries.
Though, to be fair, Gastly and Raichu only mentioned Elephants in the original Japanese games of Red/Green, it wasn't until FireRed/LeafGreen that their original entries saw translation. (assuming that the English Red/Blue entries were translated from the Japanese Blue or something?) --- RSN: Plucky9, Total: 2279 KoL: Plucky, currently a Avatar of Boris
