A brief history of the world. . .
WARNING!(Only read this if you want to spoil plot elements for yourself!)
Spoiler:

Seven years before present day:
  • On the currently unnamed continent there was a catastrophic event which lead to the rise of Moémon.
    Moémon did not exist naturally, as with all other region of PokéEarth the continent was inhabited by Pokémon.
    People and Pokémon lived by-in-large harmoniously.
    Pokémon were very popular in this region and many cartoons were made about them.
    One day however, as an animation team was developing a new show featuring moe versions of Pokémon.
    Little is known about this show, except that it is where all the troubles began.
    Shortly after the idea was developed a meteor crashed into earth which was carrying a strange virus.
    Causing little physical damage, the studio was able to continue work on the show a few days after the crash.
    Soon though many of the animator's Pokémon began to show signs of enhanced growth. This growth was quickly linked to the virus which came from space.
    After discovering what awesome potential this virus had for training, many trainers intentionally exposed their Pokémon to it.
    The virus spread over the region within months.


Four years before present day:
  • Pokémon began to get very sick. All Pokémon who were carrying this virus began to die. Quickly every single Pokémon with the strange space virus died. The only Pokémon left were wilds, greatly weakened by the rough treatment they got at the hand of the trainers who were in search of making their Pokémon team the strongest.
    The wild Pokémon were scarce though, as most had been caught to use in training.


Three years before present day:
  • Strange creatures are spotted all around the region.
    The early reports said that Pokémon were making a resurgence in the region! Not only that but the variety of life had greatly expanded!
    It was quickly discovered though that these early reports were misleading.
    There were creatures spotted who did look like Pokémon at first glance. But upon any extended inspection it was readily apparent that these creatures were not Pokémon. No one was quite sure what to call them.
    The animation studio who had suffered the impact made an announcement shortly after the discovery of these creatures...
    "We feel it is our duty to inform the public.... Our animation studio was working on.... And so it would seem that these creatures which are running around are nothing less than the moe versions of Pokémon!"
    The name Moémon was quickly coined after this announcement.
    Around this time it was also discovered that Moémon were not only diverse in life, but they were terribly strong.

Two years before present day:
  • As the Moémon quickly spread, the Pokémon that were left faced a new threat. Fighting for the same resources and the same space the Pokémon didn't stand a chance.
    Pokémon quickly became extinct on the island continent.
    There was major grief felt all over the world as the news spread.
    Grief... and fear. Many other regions refused to take imports from the continent anymore, due to fear of Moémon spreading to more regions of the world. The island continent grew more wild and self sufficient due to this change in world economy.
    Perhaps though, grief was felt the strongest on this continent.
    Many services were held to mourn the loss of the dear friends many generations had grown to love.
    There was a mass grave that was used to dump the bodies of the Pokémon who were infected with the strange space virus. This was turned into a massive grave yard, and many headstones were created to record the history of these great creatures.

One year before present day:
  • Life is returning to normal on the island. Moémon seem to be filling the same roles Pokémon used to fill.
    Moémon show signs of higher intelligence than their Pokémon counterparts showed.
    This has lead to many advancements on the island.
    Much of the heritage of Pokémon training is being kept alive on the island: children are still given the choice to become a trainer, there are still gyms and badges to earn, there is even a league where the strongest trainers in the region train.

Yesterday:
  • There have been rumors of a new Moémon being spotted.
    Nothing more has been divulged except that it is a species which has no Pokémon counterpart.
