We all know what the standard is in Pokemon.
A Pokemon game where you start your Pokemon Journey receiving one of three Pokemon, a fire, a water,or a grass, from a Pokemon Professor, and then you catch a train wild Pokemon for battles against gyms and finally the Elite Four.
XD and Colosseum are not the same. Therefore spin-off and non-canon, non-standard.
Can we not turn my thread into an argument about what I (one singular person) meant when they said "main series". It wasn't the point of this thread. Now that we are are clear what I meant can we move on?
Roze is right, we have gone off the topic. Please from this point on, stay with in the guidelines of the topic.
