The parts related to the timeline of actual game events seems to be pretty reliable, at least. Basically...

* R/B/Y/FR/LG is first
* R/S/E is second (sometime after the "connect Kanto and Hoenn PC systems" event of FR/LG)
* G/S/C is third (stated in-game to be 3 years after R/B/Y)
* D/P/P is fourth (sometime after the Red Gyarados' rampage in G/S/C)
* B/W is fifth (sometime after Team Galactic's plans failed in D/P/P. Exactly how long after the 4th-gen games it takes place is hard to say, though... could be years later, but how many years? I have no idea. Unless there's something I missed in the games that hints at a more solid timeline, anyway.)
* B2/W2 is last (stated in-game to be 2 years after B/W)
BW is mostly likely multiple years; at least there's enough time for that ex-Rocket grunt to come back to Unova like he said in GSC and, instead of reforming Rocket, start a family and have a child that is 4-5 ish.
