So while playing Crown Tundra, I noticed that the Pokémon world uses days and months of the Julian/Gregorian calendars. Do they also use anno Domini (AD) (Latin for "in the year of our Lord") and before Christ (BC) for their years, or do they use another system for years?

Just wanted to contribute that

New Pokémon Snap is yet another title that references an ancient disaster (in this case, a meteorite) that threatened the region before being halted by the local phenomenon. I've yet to complete the game so there may yet be further relevant detail, but at this point I'm not sure whether GameFreak now just considers 'ancient disaster from space' a story default or if there's something deliberately funky going on with all these cosmic monsters that seem to have it in for the Pokémon world.

Isn't there a theory somewhere that Pokémon are from space? Maybe there was just a point in PokéHistory where meteors were just flying everywhere, connected or not connected to the space theory.
