Sorry to bring up this kind of question again, but I started to wonder, do you really need to follow the rules of any particular canon for any reason? A lot of people I know seem really obsessed about following the rules of whatever sector of the fandom they are associated with. What if you don't follow any of them? No one is stopping me. No one is going to incarcerate me for having my own opinion of how the pokeworld works and it doesn't match canon in any way, shape, or form. Some people may think I can't call myself a fan then, but I don't care. I'll do whatever I flipping please. I guess 'tis the curse of being a fanfic writer.
