Considering Gamefreak makes a FORTUNE off every Pokemon game I'd say they have a pretty large team, particularly in the art department.

Game Freak has around 85 people working for them. Small studio, big profits.

Hmm. That begs the question, do they really have enough people to design a Pokemon game of this caliber without cutting corners in just 2 years? They recently said design started in 2011.

It all depends on the team is layed out I guess, as well as how experienced they are. I would say no, but that's based less on the number of developers and more personal experience. I'm a bit biased here though.

I believe they actually come up with at least 200+ Pokemon, BUT only pick out the best to release in the upcoming games.


This and the pokemon they don't use they save for future generations.

There you go.

Rumor has it that they actually designed over 1000 Pokemon for Gen.1, but only 151 made the cut. They probably have way more unused designs than we can imagine just laying around their offices.


I've heard that it was actually only around 300, but still, that's a ton

It seems difficult how long do you think it takes?


Well Sugimori said he had like 1000 pokemon ideas back in Gen 1, they now have(as of BW) 17 artists, so thats a lot of people giving ideas/creating pokemon, they said last region of the 17 artists each of them did like 10 pokemon.
