I'm gonna spin the whole 70 thing around and say there are more new Pokemon

Not commenting on it, but let me bring some history.

Generation IV: 107 new Pokémon.

Five event only Pokémon: Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin Arceus

102 New Pokémon.
29 related to old Pokémon

So,73 New Pokémon.

This time, relations to old Pokémon are done by Mega Evolutions which aren't part of the numbered Pokédex.

Wait so by your logic TC that means that there was
Over 500 Pokemon in Gen 4?
You know since different forms that weren't individual pokemin count as individual Pokemon. So this means that all if Arceus' forms and Girantina-O are also brand new Pokemon.

I don't know why people aren't counting megas. It's a different mechanic to standard evolution, sure, but GameFreak were quite clearly aiming for 70 new and maybe 30 megas which adds up to something close to what Johto and Sinnoh had.

You can't exactly expect 150 new and then another 30 megas on top.

Exactly what I was thinking too. Thank you for actually being reasonable.
