There is more than 69 pokemon, and yeah they will most likely be through events.
If it's anything like previous generations, there will be 73 total at most... --- They call me Wonder-Handsome 3DS FC: 3609-1237-6725

It's a smart move because there's already 450+ Pokemon you can capture already in the game. 700+ when Pokemon Bank opens up in December. Since the game is 100% new in 3D, looking at all the old Pokemon in a new graphic engine is like seeing new Pokemon all over again.
Besides, with over 700+ Pokemon, you're going to stick with using only 2% of its population anyway. --- 3DS Friend Code: 2594-9833-9847 Mii: Julez. PKMN: Helena. New Leaf: Robin

I think considering the amount of work they out into this game to upgrade the framework as vastly as they did that they made more then enough new Pokemon.
They already has 649 models to make, plus Pokemon with multiple forms, and they still added 70 new guys with what around 20 megas as well?
Besides that, nearly all the Pokemon are interestingly designed with cool concepts.

It's not a move I would want repeated anytime soon, but it works for this game. --- Oooh, MM, he be tryin' you, dawg. He be tryin' you. Best mind you biiiiiiiz-ness. ~KMA *triple z snap* ~AluminumTicket

The response to "Only 69 Pokemon" that I was looking for was "hehehehe", but it wasn't found, so I voted that I was okay with it instead. Seriously, jumping into the middle of stuff gets harder as the franchise gets bigger, so the smaller expansions are fine by me. --- Opinions are immunity to being told you're wrong.

The game would have been fun regardless of the number of new Pokémon added anyway. I wanted to focus on the sheer number here, even though more or less Pokémons wouldn't have affected the game in the end. --- Yes, I'm Canadian. Yes, I speak french. Yes, I live in Quebec.
