I see. Allow me to fix that
maybe he converted at 1920s?

What's Pokémon like ITTL?
It probably doesn't exist since it was created 60 years after established canon. Otherwise, it depends on what happens to Japan.
I mean besides some notable examples, Kaiserreich uses a butterfly net for the majority of people and cultural events. So if the likes of Tintin and the Blue Lotus exist, surely pokemon exists in some form later along the line.
Tintin was started in 1929 by Georges Prosper Remi who was born around 8 years before the POD, Pokemon was released in 1996 by Satoshi Tajiri who was born 29 years after the start of the game. They are not the same.
I realise that but if we were to strictly go by the butterfly effect, due to a central powers win there would logically be no Tintin or a great deal many other things that appear in game. I think it's fine to use a butterfly net for Kaiserreich, one of the settings appeal is to see how figures from OTL developed differently while still being recognizable.
I disagree. It is perfectly reasonable for Tintin to still exist in the Kaiserreich timeline. The same cannot be said for Pokemon.
Why? Belgium lost the war, occupied until 1920, facing extended Flamenpolitik and food shortages, facing the upheaval of being reformed into the puppet kingdom Flanders-Wallonia while losing Belgian Luxembourg and their colonial empire. Honestly I'm surprised Hergé even survived the ordeal, let alone having his future only marginally changed to allow Tintin to exist.
Well in democratic Japan route, there is something about culture rising(don't remember exactly what, haven't played Japan for a long time) so there is that...
German Tiger tank being prepared to go into battle. Circa 1942
The Tiger first made its debut in the ruins of Strasbourg. The day day the Tiger was introduced, it destroyed 20 enemy tanks, and the Germans did a counter-attack that threw the French and British back 6 blocks. Due to the circumstances in which the Tiger was created, it was great vehicle to use in defensive warfare, but wasn't viable on the offensive. It was very heavy and its engine was under powered, but it did have a very good gun, so it was kept in service until the end of the war.
Does Germany have the chromium to build jet fighters that actually live up to the hype
A 1939 photograph showing the infamous "White Man's Triumph" march, where thousands of KKK members marched throughout Washington DC to celebrate the Silver Legion's successful coup against Huey Long. The surprising use of the old US flag in this march was meant to symbolize the rebirth of the United States into "a true nation of the White Christian Man".

Ahmad Shah Khan , current king of Afghanistan
Alfonso XIV, first king of the spanish government-in-exile in the Balearic islands
In 1938, following the CNT-FAI's victory in the spanish civil war, Germany and France backed a military coup in the Balearic islands, making them indipendent from continental spain and planning to use them to launch an invasion of Spain during the Second Weltkrieg
However this invasion never happened thanks to spanish neutrality during the conflict
Even today Alfonso's heirs still claim to be the legitimate government of Spain
José Antonio Primo de Rivera, leader of the nationalistic forces during the Spanish Civil War
Following his defeat, he escaped with the rest of his government to Spanish Sahara, founding an other spanish government-in-exile ( the so-called "Spanish State") besides the one in the Balearic Islands
Unlike Alfonso XIV however, he soon lost all support from the Etente and the reichspackt thanks to his violation of human rights and violence towards the natives
Hermann Von Goring celebrates Mittelafrika's successfull invasion and annexation of Spanish Guinea in 1939
The official motivation for the invasion was the protection of the german territories from Syndacalist agitation
