Assuming there are only 70 new Pokemon, I'm not too unhappy. We've got some really awesome new Pokemon this gen, and the whole Mega Evolution thing is a definite plus. I would have liked more, but I won't complain too much.
If anything, introducing less Pokemon this gen extends how long they can keep the franchise going, a thought I rather like at the moment. Because they won't have as many new Pokemon this generation, it won't become too overwhelming in later generations.
That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.
I'm fairly indifferent. Sure 70 is less than what we're used to, but there is a huge difference in the amount of work that goes into models versus sprites, and we now have full, good-looking models for every pokemon they've made. If fewer newbies bothers you guys, then at least take a little comfort in the thought that, now that the oldies all have models, they don't have to put so much time, money and effort into making them for the next game (or probably even the game after that; these models will probably be used for several consecutive generations with only mild touch-ups if anything).
Of the new pokemon that we do have, I like a lot of them. While I'm not a huge proponent of Mega-Evolutions, a lot of them are cool to see and I'm willing to see what they can do for the franchise. Plus, it's great to see a lot of my old favorites back and better than ever (<3 both Mega-zards).
My biggest issue with people on the internet, particularly gamers, is how ****ing entitled they feel. I swear, there are so many guys on this board who are prepared to write the game off over something so seemingly small. It's like someone's offering you a cookie and you're trying to swat it away because it doesn't have goddamn chocolate chips in it. Or in this case, because it has less of them than what you're used to.
I always do my best to look at every game I play for what it is, rather than what it isn't. And as long as this game is fun, I could care less if there were any new pokemon at all.
