About 20-25.
Edit: Actually more like 30-35 now that I think about it.

Leaks =/= official reveals.

I'll just go ahead and list them in order:

Gen 4 had Munchlax, Lucario, Weavile, Mime Jr., Bonsly, Manaphy, Buizel, Chatot, Mantyke, Dialga, Palkia, Cherrim, Pachirisu, Drapion, Electivire, Roserade, Kricketot, Turtwig, Chimchar, Piplup, Starly, Shinx, Glameow, Happiny, Budew, Bidoof, Cranidos, Shieldon, Burmy, and Carnivine.
Total: 30/107 (28%)

Gen 5 had Zoroark, Zorua, Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Reshiram, Zekrom, Minccino, Pidove, Munna, Klink, Darmanitan, Blitzle, Sandile, Haxorus, Excadrill, Galvantula, Cofagrigus, Gothitelle, Gigalith, Reuniclus, Drilbur, Axew, Woobat, Servine, Dewott, Pansage, Tranquill, Victini, Patrat, Braviary, Musharna, Alomomola, Watchog, Swanna, Deerling, Sewaddle, Emolga, Basculin, Audino, Petilil, Pignite, Serperior, Emboar, Samurott, Purrloin, Pansear, Panpour, Bouffalant, Roggenrola, Sawsbuck, Foongus, Cottonee, and Lillipup.
Total 54/156 (35%)

As you can see, 5th Gen had a lot (although some of those were leaks, not official reveals.) I remember I was doing a special sig on SPPf at the time and there got to be so many I had to shrink it down to fit within image size limits.

Also keep in mind that for 5th Gen, the entire Pokedex was leaked beforehand. (I wasn't counting those.) That might happen again.

That was really accurate! Did you like saved each of the official Coro Coro scans into your computer or something and kept it in a folder? :O

Gen 3 had, in some order, Blaziken, Sharpedo, Duskull, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Kecleon, Kyogre, Groudon and Volbeat. Probably a few more.

EDIT: Looking through Serebii's archives, I see Wynaut, Wailmer, Pelipper, Shroomish, Lati@s, Azurill, Taillow, Zigzagoon, Relicanth, Vigoroth and Poochyena. Wow, that was a handful.

I wasn't really part of the fanbase during that time so I can't say. Offhand, I know of:

Gen 2: Ho-oh, Togepi, Tyranitar, Ampharos, Bellossom, Snubbull, Marill, Donphan, Slowking
Gen 3: Wynaut, Azurill, Wailmer, Kecleon, Skitty, Duskull, Carvahna, Sharpedo, Sableye

Again, I'm really not sure and I know that isn't all of them.

edit: This page appears to have the Gen 3 ones:
http://serebii.net/pokemon_advance/new.shtml

edit2: To clarify Gen 2, many of them were seen in the anime. Ho-oh was seen in the first episode, Togepi belonged to Misty (and was featured in that first-gen handbook everybody had) and then Snubbull, Donphan, and Marill were seen in the first movie.
