    When it comes to G1 you got a few mistakes there to begin with if you have The Japanese continuity mixed together with Hasbro's continuity

    Hasbro G1
    Transformers Season 1
    Transformers Season 2
    Transformers The Movie
    Transformers Season 3
    Transformers Rebirth which is season 4

    Then there was a season five that was reruns with new animated intros five a live-action puppet of Optimus prime

    Japanese G1
    Transformers season 1
    Transformers season 2
    Scramble city
    The movie (released years later but part of continuity]
    Transformers 2010 aka season 3
    Headmasters
    Transformers Super God Masterforce
    Transformers Victory
    Transformers Zone

    If you're merging them it's personal continuity then because on their own They Don't Really merge

    Also you still have a season for listed separate from the rebirth

    That's a mistake because the rebirth was season 4

    I know the Rebirth was S4,but I'm distinguishing it from Japan S4 cause J S4 skips Rebirth.

    There is no season 4 in Japan. Transformers 2010 AKA season 3 is followed by Transformers: Headmasters.

    Should you be merging some points together? Some newcomers may get confused about exactly what connects to what. I know that was the case with me when I was starting to get into G1 and thought "Headmasters" continued where "Rebirth" left off. After some research I learned that it was more of an alternate timeline continuity.

    Then there's the Aligned Continuity. I hadn't done research about it, but does Japan follow it? I could have sworn that Japan didn't consider Rescue Bots part of the same continuity despite the appearances of Bumblebee, Blurr, and Sideswipe. (I know Optimus appeared but he never really talked about his team from what I've seen.) But then again, I have yet to look into it and can be wrong. There's also the fact that Prime Season 3 and Finale are not in the Japanese continuity since Prime ended at episode 52 over there. Instead they had the "Transformers: Go!" anime.

    Finally there's one last thing, but I'm not quite sure this point counts though. See while Animated is a entirely separate continuity for us, Japan didn't see it that way. Instead Japan actually connected Animated to the Movies. So in Japan, Animated is in the same continuity as the live-action films. Ignoring the glaring plot holes (Japan's not Bay's), I believe they made a few changes to try to connect the characters. Changes such as renaming Bulkhead to Ironhide and I think changed up a few of the character's personalities to match those of the movie version. I think they may also have renamed the city, but I need to double check that one.

    If you have the movies listed associated with the animated entries in the Bayverse franchise, then it makes sense to include the High Moon games with Aligned, since they're supposed to be the backstory for Prime.

    Technically, Beast Wars 2 and Neo take place after Beast Machines.

    And I don't think Portals is related to any other series.

    Also it wouldn't be Transformers Prime High Moon. It would be War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron.

    Also, Transformers Prime and Adventure are basically the same thing. It's difficult to list them as the same. If anything Adventure should be separated to a Japanese Alligned list and Transformers Go! should join it.

    Yes, but then there are all the manga and the Comic Bombom stories and whatnot and all the new manga that tie-in and retcon etc.
