Junichi Masuda owns 758 pokemon according to his trainer card

#1DeitylightPosted 3/7/2014 6:57:36 AM
Celebrating the first anniversary of Nagoya Pokemon Center, Trainers will get a Junichi Masuda autograph trainer information card, which by the way shows him owing 758 pokemon.

Now anyone who breeds for shinies or 5-6 iv pokemon knows that the own numbers does not increase with owning the same species of multiple pokemon which possibility means that we are either in for a surprise or it's an error or his trainer card.

Yes but what people said in other topics you can see 758 on pokemiles and cash too so its probaly just a place holder

So there could be another 37 Pokemon that aren't revealed yet? That would be pretty cool.

3DS games do have the capability of having extra data patched onto them, right? I know they did that bug fix in Lumiose City, so I'm assuming there's the potential to have other Pokemon (and Megas) that don't exist in the coding yet.

EDIT: The post above me kind of ruins that idea. Oh well.

Probably just an error as it is on there in three places and it cannot be a real card because it is still the starting colour of blue and it would have definitely upgraded from blue.

But don't rule it out because the small number of new pokemon.... maybe the next game(s) will have a small number of new gen VI pokemon. They have never done that before, every time a third version comes out the only thing changed regarding "new" pokemon is form differences so maybe this time they kept a few new pokemon back exclusive to the new version(s).

It would be interesting if we got some new Pokemon mid-Gen. But I'm not going to read too much into that Card.

I wouldn't say that this is indicating anything, seeing as they could have just, you know, made a special card for him. He's directly involved with the game, after all, so that should be possible (and in fact, wouldn't be that unusual).

Still think that those numbers are place holders, though.

Eh, the numbers look like placeholders. Would be awesome if we got more Pokemon this gen though.

A quick google search has revealed that the number 758 is no coincidence:

Hoenn confirmed

Tired old memes aside, wonder why 758 though. Lucky number?

You never know, what's the chances that the "placeholder" number is within 100 of the actual amount of pokemon, why not 999 or 000 or 100 or something? I usually don't believe anything, but this is too exciting not to believe ;)
