Canon Divergences

This article lists a number of notable canon divergences between the mainline Pokémon continuities (Gen games, PMD games, TCG game and anime) and the Suocéverse continuity/es. This is mostly related to mechanics, plot and canon events, and even the nature of some Pokémon.

Note: these are for the most part in planning and are not officially considered canon until they feature in an article or published work.


Generations: Because of the make of the Suocéverse, events in the mainline game and anime continuities starting with Generation Ⅴ are considered secondary to that of the previous generations, and where information from new game releases would conflict with Suocéverse materials the Suocéverse version will take priority and the mainline version will be retooled or worked around.


Abilities: Abilities work less like in the mainline games and more as a mix between PMD, where a Pokémon specimen has all their abilities, and Final Fantasy Tactics where abilities are slotted into and trigger under different conditions. See: Abilities.

Ailments: Sticky status ailments, such as PAR, SLP ,PRZ and FRZ, function closer to how it works in eg.: Final Fantasy, where a status damage threshold must be overcome before the status can be applied, and sometimes a different threshold can be overcome to naturally recover from an ailment. See: Ailments.


Beta Pokémon: Certain Pokémon of official make that did not see production, such as the Spaceworld Beta Gold & Silver mons, are considered semicanon in the least. Their interpretation might be completely different however.

Zygarde: The nature of Zygarde is markedly different from that of the anime continuity. IN particular, “Zygarde cells” are not components of Zygarde but rather their own individuals of a species similar to Zygarde's, and the Dog form and Gundam form are different species as well, all hailing from a common ground. See: Zygarde.
