Given that the 3DS is more powerful than the DS and all of its variations, how large do you think the regional pokedex will be in these games? We seen examples of characters from every generation battling there. I wonder if the regional pokedex will be around 200-250 characters. Either way it looks like its going to be awesome!

Given Black and White just happened, I pin on 100-120 creatures! Still, our Pokédex is getting fuller and fuller. Will we exceed 800 Pokémon?!

The regional Pokédex will probably focus exclusively on the new Pokémon. I mean, it's what they've been doing for a while now.

I would be disappointed if it didn't push the boundaries of what the 3DS can actually do.

I dunno, they were showing quite a few oldies in the preview (I think I saw one of the Ralts evolution line at one point, no?). I'm hoping for something that brings us up to..oh.. 800? :3

I didn't like that he said "you will be able to find SOME of your favorite pokémon"

Does this mean we're not gonna "catch'em all"? I don't like that. I hope we can because I love filling the pokédex. I would be disappointed if some of my favorite pokémon weren't on the game :/

Surely they're not gonna release a game without the ability to catch all the characters? Unless they release X & Y with half the pokemon and then release Ruby & Sapphire remakes with the rest of the catchable characters to trade between the two?

150 plus 150 of past Pokemon. That'll get it to around 300 (or whatever amount gets it to however there are in R/S for the past Pokemon). I don't see them exceeding new Pokemon of over 150-ish majorly tbh.

I hope theres around 100 and 150.

And like 10 of them (or less) are evolutions or pre-evolutions of previous generations

Maybe they're going to introduce less to keep the total number under control, if they choose to introduce 100+ we will be beyond 750. Also, in the trailer there are several Pokemon from older Regions making an appearance i.e Weavile, Pikachu, Kirlia etc which I assume could make up some of the Pokedex?

Hmmm considering that B/W, well, America is closer to Europe which could be what the games are set on, in comparison to Japan, so they could have the Pokemon native to B2/W2 and the new Pokemon, due to the "far away" nature, if it is indeed based on Europe.

I thought this too at first, but then I realized they don't want to show too many new pokemon just yet, and they are using past pokemon as stand-ins to show off the 3D battles. My bet is they will do only new pokemon pre-E4. And they should at least get up to 800.

I actually wouldn't mind 6th gen only before E4 tbh. Having to learn the new characters and start from scratch sounds good to me. Then I'd incorporate my favourites afterwards!

I would be a fan of this, however in B/W people were waaayyy too opposed to this, and I figure GF knows this, or at least would consider this. ;(

Oh, this is a nice way to make some cash... I'll wage $1 that the new generation will introduce 123.6 new Pokemon.

Please places your bets.

140, more or less, of new Pokemon
This is my bet. And that not counting legendary Pokemon.
Seriously, this time they better not having too many legendaries.
Are they still legendary if they are so many other called legendary?

The arrival of Gen 6 is premature I think. I don't see them adding another 150.

A dex of 300 sounds about right, with 100 new critters and 200 oldies.

I think it might be 240 Pokemon listed, excluding possible event (mythical) Pokemon.

I heard a rumor yesterday that only 20 of Gen VI Pokemon are going to be released though that's when people were thinking it was going to be Pokemon Rainbow...

Still, if they keep it standard then it'll probably be 150 - 250.

I think we will get 150 new pokemon. I think we will also get some pre existing Pokemon some new evolutionary members and also that new eeveelution is still possible. I wonder who will get number 666 though???

Somewhere between 121 and 144 new Pokemon is my guess. I think the regional dex is going to be around 160. But about a third of them are going to be past gen.

I think there will be considerably less Pokemon in this generation; only about 50-70. I feel this as I think we had too many Pokemon released last generation, plus the trailer for X&Y only featured about 6 new Pokemon - the rest were just old Pokemon.

I hope they include new eeveelutions. If they have a new type, they could take advantage of it and make the new eeveelution that type.

Also, I think they might include all pokemon in the National Dex and just get the models from Pokedex 3D Pro. And how are we going to import our Pokemon from Gen V to Gen VI?
