Timeline of the Suocéverse

Broad strokes timeline of the Suocéverse.

Creation Era

  • In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded”. Into a chaotic multiverse. In at least one corner of the multiverse, an Egg spawns, somehow.
  • Arceus comes out of the Egg. Arceus observes an universe of randomness, seeks to see the end of all things.
  • Seeing the pieces of its egg as the only entities with order in the universe, Arceus codifies within them the rules to have energy and matter interact, thus creating from the pieces of the Egg the various energy types, and the pieces of the Egg become “Plates”.
  • Arceus creates a “language” to mold the universe with, and six agents to process various facets of existence: these would eventually become the Creation Trio and the Lake Trio, known as a group as the Sextet.
  • The “language” of creation eventually coalesces into its own concepts and symbols, and Arceus gives them shape and focus in the form of the Unown.
  • Creation of dimensions, realms, galaxies, and worlds within them, for the Creation and Lake Trios to practice their powers in.
  • Over time the Sextet maps the universe and marks various points of interest, one of them would likely be the Pokémon World.
  • Arceus seeds various marked spots with the potential for life and, its energy for creation spent, goes into a deep slumber leaving to the Sextet the task of spawning, managing and evolving life and sentience.
  • After millions of years, the Sextet finally produce the first prototype beings, essentially biological constructs with not much of a sentience. Because of their lack of experience, these creatures were very powerful but not autonomous or capable of self-preservation, and soon eradicated themselves and the worlds they had spawned in.
  • A number of tries eventually lead to the creation of the first two fully biological, sapient and autonomous beings: the creation of the Lake Trio was a creature similar to them in appearance and capable of testing any further designs the Trio came up with, which they called the “Miju” (Mew); and the creation of the Creation Trio was a creature similar to them that embodied power and the ability to transform the landscape, which they called the “Drao” (Original Dragon).
  • The rules of creation that were given form as the Unown, in their search of a purpose for the rules eventually spawned their own creation, a creature born from the ability itself to reshape reality; this creature would eventually come to be called the Feyt (“Original Fairy”).
  • With the successful first biological creatures, the Creation and Lake trios bootstrapped life in more worlds and introduced more designs, though because of their lack of experience they were not really capable of checking up on their progress or of adequately caring for them.

Early Eras

The first early Eras of the Pokémon World were dominated by the lives of wild Pokémon of the first iterations of designs created by the Lake and Creation trios; in the beginning they ran rampant following few laws beyond the relationship between predator and prey, thus in the early times the world was hectic and unfit for the emergence of great civilizations. Periodically the creator Legendaries carried out Purges as an attempt to restart the world with a new geology and new species. Some of the species who faced extinction left their footprint in the fossil record. Some other species managed to survive from one Purge to the next in very small numbers.

As new, simpler designs were introduced and the potential for Pokémon culture and civilization advanced, the early specimens who hid away for their survival emerged and attempted to use their experience and power to take advantage of the new world. The strongest example was the reign of terror that covered the world under the pressure of the last specimens each of three ancient species, who came to be known as the Warring Triad. After a long war that caused many extinctions, the activities of those Pokémon were put on hold when Arceus arrived bringing in a new species of non-Pokémon creatures called "humans" he had rescued, and placed them as temporary guests as a test for the Lake Trio.

Humans eventually tried to take over the Pokémon world for their own purposes, waging a new war of their own that eclipsed even the Warring Triad, but even they saw defectors among their youth who grew tired of the prospect of war and went to explore the world and survive on their own, gaining the early allegiance of some wild Pokémon. Conflict escalated to its worst with a final strike between the humans and their Sword and the Lake Trio, but the situation was eventually defused. Seeing an opportunity, the younger humans who had learned to live with Pokémon took initiative and sought the counsel of the Lake Trio, who supported their campaign to lure and imprison the Warring Triad.

The nascent truce and traditions between humans and Pokémon would eventually become codified in a binding treaty known as "The Vow", which allowed the two groups to coexist in a tense but safe relationship until the fog of time erased the events in the past, and eventually the rituals and traditions that originated with The Vow gave formation to the tradition of Pokémon Training.

 

Recent Eras

The period of time understood as “The Previous EraTimeline of the Suocéverse preceded what is understood as the The Present Era and can be understood as late prehistory of sorts. It covers a time period starting ~17000 yrs in the past before GenⅠ/Ⅲ and reaching up to about 3700 years in the past, shortly before the Kalos War. This era saw the fall of ancient human and Pokémon civilizations including the Alakagross Civilization or the Ghost Sinn Ring and the rise of new nascent forms of civilization, all of them marked by a cataclismic period known as the Rain from the Heavens.

It is predated by the ????th Era (to be determined).

Present Era

The period of time understood as “The Present Era” in the Timeline of the Suocéverse is the one that covers the last ~3700 yr of history of the Pokémon World, up to the events in the timeframe shown in the G6 games, and beyond into the future up to a yet to be determined event. It is also the period of time by which modern (IU) calendars work.

It is preceded by the Previous Era and followed up by THE FUTURE!

It is unknown/undetermined what event was signaled to be the Epoch of this calendar.

For convenience, in particular when it pertains to comparison to canon elements, events in this era can be given in two time coordinates: the calendar year starting from this Era's Epoch, abbreviated as +/- PE, or the time relative to the events of Generation Ⅰ / Generation Ⅲ, more specifically year relative to the Kyogre-Groudon confrontation branded the Near Apocalypse of Hoenn of 3733, abbreviated as +/- ME. For example, the events told of the Kalos War can be referred to as having happened in yr. 703 PE of the Present Era, or as -3000 ME.

All content starting here is subject to modifications via canon lore or events that can be introduced in later generations. As written at the moment of the latest revision, the chronology takes into account primarily elements up to Generation Ⅴ.

    • At the peak of the war the regent of Kalos unleashes a WEPON using magitek from the Rain era that feeds off from the mass-suiciding of Pokémon to unleash a powerful beam of light for him to judge his enemies and punish them with oblivion. Kinda like Kefka, in probably more ways than one.
    • At some point shortly after the war, the Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal move from the northern region where they were worshipped into the remains of Kalos, their presence requested by a currently undetermined entity.

(Referred to in Interim)

3729

  • Great Earthquake of the Acrasia-Caledoria Falls affects Caledoria and Suocé.
