I always thought that they happen at the same time 'cause while every new region is discovering something that another region doesn't have, it'd take a while. It's also cool to think of your trainers being the same age and growing up together.

they cant be at the same time because in gen 2 they mention how team rocket was defeated in the past by a young boy

I'm gonna say 10. There's a theory that Gen 1 and Gen 3 take place at the same time, as do Gen 2 and Gen 4. Mostly due to deoxys in both FrLg and RSE, and the lake of rage being mentioned in DPPt; that andd the remakes. Then there'd be a two year gap between Gen 1/3 and Gen 2/4, so I assume that There are two year gaps between Gen 2/4 and Gen 5's BW, then another to go to Gen 5's B2W2, and finally another one for Gen 6.
tl;dr 10

Gen I&III -(2 year gap)-> II&IV -(2 year gap)-> B/W -(2 year gap)-> B/W2 -(2 year gap)-> GenVI... That's 8 years, not ten.

8 then. I thought I was correcting it when I deleted 8 in my comment. Nevermind that

No idea, but my guess is short enough for Oak to still be a household (or at least an academically known) name, and for Gary to still be alive

i bet oak feels like a retard that in his life as a professor of pokemon he
never completed the 150 pokedex but also only several years later over 600 more was found...
oddly enough in populated areas...hmm.

Maybe they didn't have an internet to share their discoveries over? Bill was only just finishing his pokemon transportation device in those days, remember?

They have phone lines and camera calls.

true but that means that the entire world lives in complete country sized isolation from each other..
and Lt. surge did say there was a war, this is making odd amounts of sense.

The only ones that appear to be joined are Kanto and Joh...so how did he not know about the gen 2 pokemon? Maybe they it was because they hadn't created the HM for Waterfall yet...?

that is one idea, there was like no transportation in the original games until they invented boats and even that only takes you to limited places so some areas was disconnected.

and I could see how they would be short on funds due to the war. Enforced food rations were still a thing long after WW2 ended

so let me tie this together,
because of a long lasting war many countrys and areas in those countrys became
disconnected and the lack of funds meant they had no communication etc so they spent
ages rebuilding and inventing new transport and at this point everything is started to connect again.

makes sense?
