70 Pokemon wouldn't be SO bad if 42 of them weren't revealed pre-release.

I mean sure, 70 Pokemon only sucks, even 89 Pokemon would suck, but what makes it all so much more terrible is that basically they showed more than half of the entire generation through CoroCoro and Nintendo Directs. We knew most of Gen VI before the games were even released, with only ~28 new Pokemon to be seen (If there are exactly 70).

Not saying the games are gonna suck or this gen is gonna suck or anything like that, it's just that the experience of discovering dozens and dozens of new Pokemon after the games come out is absent this time around.

You mean if you didn't spoil it yourself? I've personally seen around 20-25 gen 6 Pokemon so far.

I don't really care about that. The only thing I find bad about it is that it created misleading expectations.

I wouldn't like 70 Pokemon no matter how many of them were shown.

42 were officially shown off by Nintendo and many of them are plastered on official advertising including in stores.

You're absolutely right, my thoughts exactly. I mean, I honestly thought they wouldn't reveal that much beforehand.

It's weird. That's why I think something's up... Is it 100% confirmed there aren't any post-game national dex Pokemon? And is it 100% sure Gamefreak won't release DLC Pokemon in the form of new routes, islands, caves...? Something like that I dunno.

I'd think nothing of the fact that there are only 69 Pokemon, IF they didn't reveal more than half pre-release.

Well I apologize if that's really the case, but personally I've seen around 20-25 myself, I might've missed some reveals somehow. Just to make sure, we're not counting Megas right?

Well, Orotto wasn't "shown off," but was used in promotional materials.

But yeah, this guy is right. I counted and there are 42 officially revealed Pokemon.

So I shouldn't watch TV until game is released to avoid spoiling the Pokemon? Because that's where I've seen a huge chunk of the officially announced Pokemon. That was before I even bothered with the official site.

I agree then, think they've shown a bit too much. I'm still fine with 70 Pokemon though.
