It's actually thought to be well over 700, I'd be happy with anything beyond 730 just as long as the designs are reasonable.

What's Froakie listening out for in its art?

What do their stances suggest their final evos will be?

When I see "Well over 700", I'm pretty sure upwards of 740 pokes is possible

It's not that hard to have over 700 total when you've already got 649. Is that their way of not telling us there are going to be fewer than 100? Saying "There are over 100 new Pokemon!" is much more exciting than "There are going to be at least 51!"

Oh, but what will get the spot for number 666?

It could've just been Confuse Ray though. I kind of hope it does just stay pure fire, but I'll be happy with anything other than fire/fighting -.-

Maybe a Ghost type, I can't see them making a Pokemon based upon the Devil.

Dear lord I hope not, like crazy overprotective, extremely religious parents need more reason to hate Pokemon.....

I mean no offense in any way of religion, I just don't believe Pokemon are evil spawns of the devil.

After the PETA thing in gen V, I highly doubt they want religious nuts targeting them for a devil 666 Pokemon.

It looked like it was doing damage to the Kirlia it was being used on in the trailer. Which, if you've played any gen III 3D games and beyond, Pokemon don't tend to use their animation for being damaged when hit by a status inflicting move.

Ah so true.. Sadly we just can't know until they want us to, it's killing me!

It's hard to judge, it does look like a psychic hitting move i.e Psywave or Psybeam but then it could just be reacting to the status ailment which would be from confuse ray. We'll soon find outtt

Hmm? What PETA thing in gen 5?

Do you think they'll reveal anything else before release?

Well, I kinda don't think the pokemon 666 will be such a big deal - the Japanese believes that the number '4' and the number '9' are more unlucky and sinister, because four is pronounced "shi" which is the same pronunciation as death, and nine is pronounced "ku" which has the same pronunciation as agony or torture.

And well, pokemon #444 is Gabite, so... I doubt they would have a pokemon that represent the occult beliefs of 666; unless maybe they will cater to Western beliefs too.

I doubt they will. I think they will reveal the starters evolutions, and that's it. I'm just guessing because they suddenly decided to do a worldwide release, so why not hide everything they can until the big day? This means people are still curious for the new Pokemon and are shut off at the ones they don't like, so people will still get it.

Or they'll wait till after it is release to find out.

I don't think a worldwide simultaneous release would have an effect on the anything, they usually reveal the whole Pokedex before releasing the games which has always been the case as far as I'm aware.

I hope you're right....I would be satisfied if it was at least the starter evolutions

True. For some reason I recall them saying that they were going to keep gen 5 hush hush, but I don't remember if that was true or speculation. Either way, I am just glad it's only ten months rather than a year or two.

I remember the gen V Pokédex got leaked a bit before the release.

Let's stop spending all our time speculating and do something constructive...like building a time machine to take us forward to october, where everything is confirmed or denied! if only
Game developer.
Not nearly as active on here as I used to be.
Still like meeting and talking to pokemon fanatics like myself.

Within 9 Months I'm sure they will reveal more than just starter evolutions, there's the Region name, cities, gym leaders, rivals etc.
