will you even buy this game if there really are only 70 new pokemon?

i preordered mine but I might cancel if we don't get enough new pokemon

mega evolutions aren't new pokemon. I want new species not old ones re designed
The following pokemon will be retyped to fairy. If not I will close my account.

Yes, but I'll be very disappointed knowing that there's only that much new Pokémon.

Quality over quantity. I'll take 70 unique Pokemon over 150 rehashes of the same old ideas.

I've liked SOMETHING about each and every generation. I will say that thus far, most announcements have been fairly disappointing to me. If it turns out not worth it in my opinion then I will be more hesitant next game.

If the 70 includes Megas, I will start to ponder.

i might cancel my pre-order for x, but still keep y.

right now i dont see 12 pokemon i really like, so no need for both versions.

the news has been getting pretty dissapointing, at first all the new pokemon were so good, but then they revealed those dumbass megas and these ugly starter evolutions and my hype just started plummeting.

I agree, but thus far I have not seen quality that warrants such low numbers. Mega-evos (which is the reason I see for such low new pokes) are rehashes. So you'd be getting a lot of rehashes.

I'll buy it even if there are 40 new Pokemon. People always end up only using the ones allowed in OU anyway which is about 10-20 per Gen.

I would, but it'd be incredibly disappointing, especially considering how hyped I am for the game.
