Main Branch

<1990 RR (Before Silph Co)

- Team Rocket's history before the Silph invasion

- Placeholder (Formation of Rocket and the initial things that happened - did Rocket exist before Giovanni?)

- Pre-game region stuff

- Placeholder (Any backstory stuff that comes before everything else)

- Any Ford History

- Placeholder (Placeholder until Parugi gives more answers)

1990 RR - 1993 RR(Kanto/Hoenn crises + Orre invasions)

26 years before RALLY

- Kanto events

- Placeholder (Rocket V1 summary - ??? as a base; maybe a fusion of Yellow, FRLG, and bits of Let's Go that fits?)
- Placeholder (Note: Bits of Adventures are used for the basis of the characters, and for Yellow the character existing)

- Hoenn events

- Placeholder (Aqua vs. Magma summary - Custom Emerald as a base)
- Placeholder (Note: Custom Emerald includes taking some aspects of ORAS, like the characterization of some people like the admins or Archie/Maxie. Still no Primals/Mega Evolutions, however, and Zinnia, if she exists, doesn't play as big a role.)

- Orre events

- Placeholder (Summary of the two bits of Cipher's saga)
- Placeholder (Note: XD happens only two years after Colosseum in this universe - this changes things by having stuff like the Purify Chamber not being ready until after Professor Krane is rescued)

- Unova History

- Placeholder (Description of anything that happened in this time frame - Plasma likely was only just forming here, N adopted here?)

- Any Ford History

- Placeholder (Anything during this time period that pertains to Ford)

1993 RR - 1996 RR(Johto/Sinnoh crises + miscellaneous other things)

- Johto events

- Placeholder (Rocket V2 summary - takes from HGSS and bits of Adventures)
- Placeholder (Note: Utilizing the Sinjoh segment of Adventures as well, possibly, as well as aspects of GSC Adventures for the Mask of Ice arc

- Sinnoh events

- Placeholder (Galactic summary based off Platinum and bits of Adventures)
- Placeholder (Note: Cyrus didn't get released after the Distortion World - following the games and the anniversary special for this.)

- Unova History

- Placeholder (Murmurs of Plasma beginning to rise to infamy and in 1995 start to steal Pokémon)
- Placeholder (Note: After the Rocket V2 incident, Bye-Bye-A-Go-Go Grunt moved to Unova and started a family with someone he had been in a long-distance relationship before 1993)

- Any Ford History

- Placeholder (Anything during here that pertains to Ford)

1996 RR - 1998 RR(Rise of the Shadow Admins + Unova crisis)

- Shadow Admin coup + aftermath

- Placeholder (Summary of the events leading to Giovanni's death)

- Unova History

- Placeholder (Plasma V1 summary)
- Placeholder (Note: Think about how the differences were handled, outside being based off a hypothetical "Grey" version. Would this take into account things like recent remakes and make characterization even better?)

- Ford History

- Placeholder

1998 RR (Rocket takeover of the Kantonian regions + Unova crisis pt 2)

- Rocket takeover

- Placeholder (Summary of events; Rocket takes over the government after the majority of the most powerful trainers in the country have gone off to Unova for the Pokemon World Tournament)

- Unova History

- Placeholder (Plasma V2 summary)
- Placeholder (Note: B/W2 also merge into something, possibly based on the Generations short where N is saved by the B/W1 Protagonists as well as the B/W2 Protagonists. It could be that the initial freezing of Opelucid was done by an upgraded Chill Drive, and Plasma leads the protagonists and N to the one place that Kyurem is strongest, so Ghetsis can mind control a full powered Kyurem to his side.)
- Placeholder (Note: Because the trainers are here for the World Tournament, they are unable to help in Kanto. Unova's government is appalled by the actions that Rocket did, no matter the reasons, and places a tentative travel caution on traveling to the Kantonian region.)

- Ford History

- Placeholder

1999 RR - 2003 RR (Rise and Fall of Resistances)
