As established in Pokemon tag problems (Gotta Tag 'Em All), we handle Pokémon main series game tags in the following manner:
- Generation Tag: e.g. pokemon-third-generation - For questions about the 3th generation of games, that aren't specific about any individual game.
- Game Tags
This is generally great and works well for our format, we haven't had any major issues with this (barring one tag length issue).
