Actually, the book came out in 2016! And the timeline was written by GXM production assistant/GMMG producer Kazunari Yamanaka (credited as "Kazufumi Yamanaka" in the book for some reason).

From the main page:
The Godzilla X Mechagodzilla Completion (ISBN: 9784798613536) lists a history of the self defense force as it relates to monsters for Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002) and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003). This includes citing the battle against Kumonga and Gigan by the Type 66 Maser Beam Tanks, while also noting the SDF's confrontation with King Ghidorah in 1999 with the following passage:

"1999: Together with Mothra, with whom the SDF had once fought against, King Ghidorah was annihilated."
So, a Japanese book that came out in 2002. I'd like to know how much of this was officially intended or recognized by the people who worked on the films. I think it's worth dismissing these anecdotes altogether as they aren't important in the context of the films themselves.
I find the canonicity of that up for debate.

Added in 26 days 2 hours 16 minutes 56 seconds:
^Well in that case In addition to Godzilla's DNA being worked with, King Ghidorah's DNA is also reverse-engineered, resulting in the creation of Dorats.

Once Japan is able to exceed in both robotics (and also presumably biotech) as they purportedly do in the far future of this timeline with multiple mecha-versions of various kaiju, the nation becomes the #1 world superpower, much to the chagrin of a few envious individuals who have a plan for if such a thing were to happen...

Sooooo..... the premise of Pokemon or the original versions of Digimon then? The original Digimon toys were virtual pets that killed each other until the American version changed it. Or like the movie Rampage.

I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.

After Kiryu submerged into the depths of the Pacific with the second Godzilla, I would like to imagine that the Japanese Government learnt from their mistakes with Kiryu and left everything Godzilla-related out of all future Mecha-Projects, and stopped integrating DNA into Mechs. Though Japan has built an army of Kaiju Mechas around the Kaiju existing in that continuity. The Anti-Megalosaurus Force has been monitoring Kiryu and Godzilla's slumber to prevent another land-fall from either of them, though kaiju attacks have risen since Godzilla has vanished, mostly because of their biggest fear/competition literally disappearing.

What if they create a fully organic creature like Biollante or Destoroyah?

Oh yes I do; I grew up in PA, in the Philadelphia area. I know what it's like in the winter there.

Of course, these days it's probably much colder now than it was when I was a kid, what with the crazy weather and all in this day and age.

At least you got snow there, right?

We’ve got none so far over here

These threads are always interesting. In that universe I am sure more monsters have arrived, including human spawned abominations. Kiryu has probably had it. It was a piece of junk anyway. As for Godzilla I am not entirely sure, if Godzilla couldn't fully heal the first time I doubt he can this time too. Unless perhaps he just needed more time that he didn't get first time around? I think it is safe to say Godzilla lived, but it will probably be years before he is active again. I am sure with the humans conducting DNA experiments and the appearance of random kaiju in this universe I bet they will be begging for Godzilla to return.

The Japanese government continues to let scientists mess with the monsters' DNA. They made more mechs based on the monsters that attacked Japan. This causes the two Mothras, now in imago form, to declare war of humanity like what the Shobijin said. The government declares the Mothras and the Shobijin as enemies of Japan, and so using the Anti-Megalosaurus Force to fight against them while protests and then a revolution against the mechs sweep the nation.

Eventually, the mechs are destroyed and the projects for them are abandoned. The Mothras stops their rampage, the Shobijin forgives Japan and the two Mothras goes back to defending Japan from other monsters.

I like to imagine one of the Showa Era aliens finally invaded. In particular the Nebulans would fit perfectly narratively and thematically as Gigan is a cyborg

Hmm, in this case, would Gigan be a full on alien here or an Earth monster turned cyborg via Nebulan technology?
