Original Timeline

From We Are All Pokémon Trainers
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Original Timeline or OU is the primary viewpoint universe of the WAAPT Multiverse. Most events in-RP take place in this universe, though despite the name, it is not the first universe metaphysically, merely the one known of first.

At the end of the Gold Conference, this timeline was shifted into the Alternate Timeline by Cyrus. At the end of that arc, the Creation Trio separated both timelines, each one in its own universe, and the original timeline continued onto the Orange Islands Arc.

In this original timeline, Gamer took the role of the "player character" in Emerald-related events, Luke in HG/SS-related events, and DS in Platinum-related events.

The Another Universe or Otherverse is a completely different universe with a different timeline of its own.

The events of the backstory of the RP are covered by this timeline. Notable events include:
