    So because I'm a giant geek I was curious what the least number of timelines/worlds for Pokemon is possible. Here's my answer and what I consider to be my head canon:

    Classic Timeline Red (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, T2, Type: Null, Guardian4, Cosmog, Light3): Red -> Gold -> Ultra Sun

    Classic Timeline Blue (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, T2, Type: Null, Guardian4, Cosmog, Light3): Blue -> Silver -> Ultra Moon

    New Timeline Red (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, Titans, Eon2, Weather3, Lake3, Creation3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas): FireRed > Ruby -> Pearl

    New Timeline Blue (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, Titans, Eon2, Weather3, Lake3, Creation3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas): LeafGreen > Sapphire -> Diamond

    Alpha 3rd Timeline (3Birds, Mewtwo, Titans2): Yellow -> Crystal

    Prime 3rd Timeline (3Birds, Titans, Eon2, Weather3): Emerald

    Omega 3rd Timeline (3Birds, Titans, Creation3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas): Platinum

    Heart Timeline (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, Tower2, Eon2, Weather3, Creation3): HeartGold

    Soul Timeline (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, Tower2, Eon2, Weather3, Creation3): SoulSilver

    5th Timeline Black (Titans, Eon2, Lake3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas, Swords, Nature, Tao3) Black > Black2

    5th Timeline White (Titans, Eon2, Lake3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas, Swords, Nature, Tao3) White > White2

    Mega Timeline Red (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, T2, Titans, Eon2, Weather3, Lake3, Creation3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas, Swords, Nature, Tao3, Aura3, Type: Null, Guardian4, Cosmog, Light3): Omega Ruby > Y > Sun

    Mega Timeline Blue (3Birds, Mewtwo, 3Beasts, T2, Titans, Eon2, Weather3, Lake3, Creation3, Cresselia, Heatran, Regigigas, Swords, Nature, Tao3, Aura3, Type: Null, Guardian4, Cosmog, Light3): Alpha Sapphire > Y > Moon

    Go Timeline Yellow (3Birds, Mewtwo): Let's Go Pikachu

    Go Timeline Brown (3Birds, Mewtwo): Let's Go Eevee
    The thinking is that legendary pokemon (ordinarily) are unique and therefore two of them cannot exist in the same timeline/universe. The notable exception to this is Ultra Wormholes although apparently Black/White and Black2/White2 also had exceptions.

    As such most timelines are split into 2 components. The notable exception being the "3rd timelines" which consist of a single train. Most timelines are split into a "red" version and a "blue" version. Most of it is completely unimportant and also complete nonsense, but it's my "head cannon".

    Why did I put in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon onto the end of the Classic Timeline? Because I really like the idea that the last Pokemon games on a handheld console returned to the same timeline that began the entire franchise. Also once you exclude Ultra Wormhole legendaries, there is not a single repeat between the original 2 generations and the Pokemon in the Ultra games. I could also add in the Black and White timelines, however it doesn't really fit with how the games were originally marketed with them being a break away from the old with 150 brand new pokemon and such. I also remember a "alternate dimension warper" that allowed scientists to research alternative universes so in my headcanon Black/White are in their own universe/timeline.

    One thing that is interesting with how I've laid it all out, most universes/timelines feature the Legendary 3 Birds. The 5th timelines being the odd one out.
