Before the series (games, manga, anime, etc.) all come to a close how many Pokemon do you predict there'll be?

I'm thinking around 600 or so.

I honestly don't know why they couldn't crank out another 7 to make it an even 500.

Because there'd need to be an entire new generation if they wanted to make new Pokemon. And if they make a whole new generation, they'd better have more than a measly 7 Pokemon to show for it.

I'm thinking around 600-650 or so, too.

They have to stop eventually. :\ After that, I'm guessing they'll make other types of games like PMD and such.

The possibilities would increase if they had the Light type. Lol.

There is rumored to be something like 1100 some odd Pokemon...so if that were true, we're about halfway.

895 pokemon is mine. I think it'll make it that far before they have to revamp every game into one ultimate game.

493....

OK. I don't really think so, but I do want them to stop making Pokémon. I mean, they're cool and everything but it's not the right way. Just stop everything and make a MMORPG. It would sell millions and we'd be happy with our 493 species of Pokémon.

By the way, Arceus is the "god" so, unless they come up with something better than that, I guess the Dex ends here.

Maybe around 800. I suppose 1 or 2 more generations are possible. I'm not sure if they could make it to a 1000

I'm going to have to say 2 more generations, so about 250 more pokemon. So I guess it would be about 750.

Enough so that little kids's brains would be consumed by Pokémon, and have no room for 2+2=4. There will be 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 Pokémon, until they run out of money and crash.

I cant predict a number, but since they keep remaking the games over and over all the time, next being a silver/gold remake "i think" i predict there will be probly 800 or so pokemon.

Tbh tho i doubt the series will ever end, the Pokemon name has been out since before some you were born that or when you were still in diapers :P yea that long and its still very popular, the card game has made a comback and with the release of D/P and how well its done specially with the Introduction of WI-FI trading and battle's i doubt the series will ever end.

They wont stop until it stop's making money. Pokemon is like the Mario of my Generation it isnt gonna end.

As for the guy who said to stop making pokemon and make a MMO that would never work. Alot of people like Pokemon because of the Handheld games. The way the game is played how simple and easy it is the game has been played the same way for 11-12 years now and thats why people keep comming back. Whats turns me away from pokemon are crappy games like the ones for the Console's with all the fancy graphics and the wierd gameplay. I'll stick the old fation way, sometimes good graphics and stuff like that isnt the way to go it turns people away.

A pokemon MMO would fail. It would be neat to try and actually walk around like you would on say world of warcraft catching pokemon in a free huge world, training and battling with others online but i just dont think it would work it isnt the same

Not necessarily. With all these Wi-Fi things, I think they could easily handle a decent MMORPG in a handheld. Or at least in a home console. Really, fancy graphics are cool but just battling doesn't make a game (yet I bought PBR :p). Now if the handheld was normal and there was a MMORPG in the home console where you can import your Pokémon, that'd be cool. They could even update stuff. But I know this would limit a bit the next generations, so probably money is more important.

I think 700-900, but Pokemon has only been made for 12 years, Mario was longer, and it's Nintendo's top selling game, so I think it would be awhile before they actually end this franchise.

I think there going to make 1 more generation of Pokemon and make it there best and the game to.Then its the end.600-650 is what i think.

493
I hope they stop making new Pokemon and start working on cooler and more innovative games.

But they probably will keep going till they've killed, buried, and urinated on Pokemon's grave.

November 1st, 2007, 04:04 PM
I think they were too lazy to make it up to 500, or 493 is just the lucky number of Nintendo =D

My prediction... it should stop at Arceus

Rosefrost
November 1st, 2007, 08:53 PM
I'm thinking at least another 200, if not more. 6.6

I'm actually thinking around 1000 they'll stop, Also the episodes should stop at 1000. Even though I think they're running out of both ideas for new Pokemon and the Names. We've already noticed how repetitive the games and Episodes are though.

I kind of agree with you there. I mean if Arceus is the god, than that means they're done. I mean, what can be better than a god? Ithink they're done cranking out pokemon.

I hope enough until I have a kid (probably in 8-10 years) so I could play with them and raise them to be supreme.

That'd be so cool.

Hooray for Pokemon!
Keep 'em coming, Kenny!

And maybe they will keep making more "godly" pokemon. Eh, eh?

In other words, all of the animals that have not yet been made into pokemon.

974.

Dont ask me how.

But I reckon the ending number of Pokemon will be 974.

Im waiting for them to stop focusing on new pokemon, and make like a super-game... Awsome graphics.. all Regions..

I think they are fine with the ammount they have now. I wasn't very impressed with the newest generation, (sorry). I would much rather have quality over quantity, not just pokemon that can "Fill the slots" Make me a great game, and I can deal with not having new pokemon in it....

I actually believe the golden age of Pokemon is Generation II. (Personally)

Some new Pokemons ain't that impressive... I actually still love Pidget a lot. XD

I am fine with the current amount of Pokemons, but well, I guess they still wanna make money out of it. So I guess... 777 for another 5 years? lol

Pun intended? I think that however long Mario lasts, Pokemon will too.

I PRAY for no more than 600. Apparently they have some kind of database full of hundreds of them and they're slowly leaking them in at random. I figure that they try to get in the best ones as fast as possible until they're just left with crappy, ugly, useless things. After 600, I doubt that there will be many good choices left. ><
And we don't want this to become like Digimon or Yu-Gi-Oh where there are so many monsters and evolutions that you can't even keep track. If there are too many...just ugh. >>

The abslute most Pokémon they can release before they hit rock bottom is probably 700. Seven is a very good number. I'd prefer if they just STOP NOW, but the guys at Nintendo know that no matter how bad the new Pokémon are, if they keep making new games people will continue buying them and they'll keep making a profit off the new kiddies who join in the franchise. That's what happened with D/P; an entire new generation of fans got into Pokémon. And they just hope that this will just keep happening, even if the new Pokémon are crap.


Seriously, though: stop now, because the fourth generation just wasn't even that good. >>

I'm personaly enjoying this 4th gen a lot.

Pokemon is still selling stupidly well. The designs started dropping 3rd gen, now they are in free-fall. How many can they design? Also, how can they fit them all into one game or generation?

I despair looking at some of these 4th gen pokemon. They keep being churned out at lower and lower quality though. The pre-evolutions and evolutions work though. Question is what would a new gen of pokemon games be like with no new pokemon? Then it really would become repetitive.

On the Arceus being God front, they've done this before. Mew was meant to contain all the DNA of all pokemon, be the rarest, strongest etc. I still ignorantly consider Mew>Arceus. How many times can Satoshi/GameFreak tell us 'Oh-no, this is the new strongest pokemon' which brings me onto the ever increasing number of legendaries. Are they becoming watered down?

Maybe they have finished with Arceus and 495. 600 has been mentioned a lot. On the whole database idea thing, thats just scary. The most likely thing is it carrying on and growing. Digimon and Yu-gi-oh are still growing right? From what i know they have long since passed their prime, the prime that they had.

I'd like for them to carve out a few for a G/S/C Remake and have it at about 520.

Then another generation with about 60 new pokemon,

580 Wouldn't be so bad.

But I'm happy with the 493 we have now.

i think there will be thoasands as the pokemon creators dont know where to stop the will make more and more stuff intill its grows unpopular because there are to many things to collect the same thing happend to yu gi oh the got tazos cards spinners figures everything it just became so unpopular now some ppl still like it but the makers are still makin more decks and stuff they are about to loose there only left fans
