Maybe since we still don't know anything about the strange sovunear yet it looks nothing like any pokemon we've seen and I'm pretty sure GF wouldn't be showing a gen 7 pokemon so early. Not to mention the guide book saying that certain berries can only be obtained from different regions and as we all know pokebank doesn't allow items so it wasn't talking about previous games. Pokemon Z or whatever the next game is might not take place in kalos and I'd be okay with this if it happends. c:

Same here. I don't think that we only got ~71 was because there are more- I think that it's because Pokemon pulled the brakes. If they went and introduced 130 new Pokemon every Generation, we'll eventually have way too many way too soon. ~70 is much more realistic for the longevity of the series. Yeah, we may be disappointed at first, but at least they're trying to hold us over with Mega Evolutions too.

I kinda like that they didn't add so many because of the ones we got, we received MANY quality Pokemon. Besides, we got Mega Evolutions and 3D which both added to the Pokemon count as well as the time it took to create the game.
