So now that there's a new type...

...Does this mean that all previous Generations are now non-canon until they're remade? You'd think the "orginl gen r nawt cannon becuz bttl mekkanix" crowd would be all over this.

Wat. If a new type makes the earlier generations non-canon, how about the "sudden" discovery of 100+ new pokemon species including the equivalent of gods (Kyogre, Groudon, Arceus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem and so on) each 3 years?

Huh. I guess they just quietly disappeared, then. Good riddance, that was a horrible argument and I'm glad it's debunked.

The only truth to the remakes is that they were made so that people with newer Generation games can transfer older Pokemon to them. The whole thing about certain fans being completely adamant that the older Generations were flat-out supplanted due to battle mechanic changes alone was silly.

They're not going to affect the canon of past games. At worst this is just a retcon, and the timelines/continuities are the same.
