“It’s a brand new day,” says the Sun as he embraces you with his golden rays, “it’s time to wake up, love.”

“Don’t forget to smile. Don’t forget to be kind to yourself. Don’t forget to love yourself.”

—  Lukas W. // Forgotten Words #112 // “You deserve all the love in you.”
I just now noticed this, and it’s got me all kinds of fucked up

One of the biggest topics in the Pokemon fanbase is the timeline of the games; players speculate the chronological order of the games, and sometimes remakes of the old games can make this a bit muddy. However, avid Pokemon fans remember this tweet from a GameFreak employee, showing us their “official” timeline:

As it stands, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire replace their predecessors Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire in the official canon, putting them at the same time as the events of Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen, the remakes of the original Red and Blue. These two games that begin the timeline of the Pokemon Universe feature many prominent characters, such as Red, Blue, and Wally.


Fast forward to now, and the brand new adventure of Pokemon Sun and Moon are very close upon us. In the timeline mentioned above, the games take place a few years after Pokemon Black2/White2 and Pokemon X/Y, since we see evident aging of Sina and Dexio, Professor Sycamore’s assistants in the Kalos region, in Alola.


Speaking of aging, a number of characters age in this new game, which is something that really doesn’t happen too often in Pokemon games. See Red and Blue appearing in these games looking about ~15-20 years older than they were in Pokemon FireRed and Pokemon LeafGreen

BUT, Wally, who was the same age as Red in Blue during the events of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, remains the same age. In fact, there’s literally no difference to him.

And it doesn’t just happen to Wally; Cynthia remains the exact same as well. I know from a real world perspective it’s just a marketing strategy to appeal to older members, but looking at it in a Pokemon universe standpoint, it makes no sense that some members are allowed to age over others. Tumblr, any ideas/headcanons to help make sense of this?
