Ah, but something DOES contradict it.
And that is... Rockman Shadow!!!
If I remember correctly, it works like THIS.
Timeline 1 (Quint) Megaman 1-9 take place. Wily reforms, and megaman is remodeled back into a household robot. Then the events of megaman 2 GB occur.
Timeline 2 (Rockman Shadow)- Megaman 1-9 and the GB games occur. Megaman kills Quint, and the events for rockman shadow occur. After GB 5, megaman goes power crazy, turning into Rockman Shadow. He is never remodeled.
Timeline 3 (X series)- megaman 1-10, and GB games. After seeing two future possibilities for himself, megaman is never remodeled, however keeps his desire for more weapons at bay. Everyone eventually breaks down, and (IDK about this) megaman is wiped and remodeled into X, after being given Free Will™ However, careful to make sure that X Shadow does not occur, Light places X into a capsule, records a bunch of messages is capsules with one-time use armor, and has a heart attack or something. Meanwhile, Wily seals himself in a statis chamber to make sure he is still alive when Zero comes around?]
If anything is wrong with this theory, please let me know!
