Kalos put emphasis on older Generations, sticking too many new Pokemon in our faces would ruin that I believe.
I like the number we got, keep in mind I think Gen II only brought about 90ish Pokemon, 20 less than what we got in Gen VI.

gen 2 gave us 100 new pokemon.

considering we only had 151 back then, that was a huge increase in total numbers.

Going from 156 to 72 was a bad move.

I realize they should take the number down a bit, but I was expecting around 100

Well, you also have to consider mega evolutions...

If anything, 156 was excessive, and we were all spoiled by it. 72 plus around 30 megas is perfectly fine.

Eh, look at the philosophy of the games. Gen V was all new, all different. I believe it's the only generation where the first games didn't have a single older pokemon until the post-game. It was basically a soft-reboot of then franchise. It moves out of the time frame of Gens I/II for the first time.

Gen VI is everything old is new again. Everyone talks about the old games, it's primarily older pokemon with a heavy focus on Gen I with almost every Gen I pokemon available and mega evolutions that seem to spotlight Gen I more than the others, and you get a Gen I starter with a mega stone before you get to the second gym. So it makes sense that it has the least new pokemon, since the focus is really on the older ones.

Hopefully. They need to slow the f*** down.
