Are you guys really that upset for a suggestion that would give us 150 new pokemon 100 of them improvements on old favorites? It'd add so much more variety to the game I don't think we have 100 pokemon now that could be considered for competitive play there could be a meta for mega pokemon alone.
Only 50 new pokemon is depressing but look at the positive to things, it's probably no more lumineons.
If we take all of the new Pokemon we've seen so far and give at least one evolution/pre-evolution to the ones that don't have one at this point (2 evolutions in the case of the starters), then we already know of 47 Pokemon.
We are definitely getting more than 50 new Pokemon. They're not just going to show us most of the Pokedex pre-release.
R.I.P. Pokemon Cycle Fact: Things are so much better when taken at face value.
