I wasn't saying you said that. I was more implying that there is nothing that shows it as a possibility. Surely someone in Hoenn would've mentioned it? Haha...

If anything, this just shows that Pokemon being in other regions probably doesn't have much to do with a timeline; more of it probably has to do with retconning to connect the games. I doubt even Johto would go so long without anyone seeing any Johto pokemon. This only goes along with the whole idea that the games come out as they come out and there is no real pattern(as was said by someone at Gamefreak wasn't it?)

So if XY had a huge timeskip, but introduced many familiar elements of our world into the Pokeworld that would be pretty neat too. Maybe we could actually have a plane ride event or such, since things like that -do- exist.

Also, if XY was super far "in the future" there might be some family links with the BW protagonist... That would be interesting, no doubt. I don't think it will happen, but someone could always pull a Skyward Sword and say that Pokemon XY happened in some far off region before any other Pokemon game known to date. Unlikely, but that's always a possibility, considering how little we know at the moment.
Maybe the protagonist in XY could be a descendant of the BW protagonist? XD Only mentioning that because of everyone noting the current similarities.

This is all just even weirder to talk about because of us not knowing much about Gen IV's area. Even though it probably isn't likely, it would be pretty neat to have a sort of prequel region.
Don't you think Hoenn deserves to be at least this beautiful?
