We've established that we do have ships. And these continents are awfully close to each other. Hard to miss, you know?
I wonder what's going on.

No, cause if they didn't get retconned we would either still be in kanto with the original 150 or there wouldn't be any other games besides red, blue, yellow, and green. --- "Kinda defeats the purpose of taking an oath, though. It's like the spiritual version of being a whore."-Diorte
Wow, how did I not know that Arizona is based on Orre?

Since Gen III, they no longer mention the new generation of Pokemon as new discoveries. In fact, HeartGold and SoulSilver retconned the originals by saying Eggs aren't new discoveries, that Prof. Elm discovered Pichu first (as opposed to recently discovered as implied in the originals), and that there are more than four hundred species of Pokemon (an NPC in a Pokemon Center, perhaps Goldenrod City's).
Nowadays, we can assume that every species of Pokemon imaginable exists in the Pokemon world in every single game after Gen II, and it's just that our player character will only ever encounter the ones available in the game. For example, Ethan and Lyra could hypothetically obtain a Pokemon from Gen V during their lifetime, it's just that we won't ever see them doing so. --- [Este mensaje fue borrado al deseo del dueno]
