Less than 156, definitely more than 100. I would guess 131, a bit less than Hoenn's.

Don't think GF knows what squeamish means, other wise they wouldn't have added 156 in the 5th generation. You also got to remember that this is suppose to be an entire different part of the world and there is bond to be a lot of new species, just like in Unova. The reason they never added a lot in the first 4 is because they were all very close to one another. And Hoenn is probably, to me, the biggest region before Unova and Kalos, so they added 135 to Hoenn.
I hope you're not referring to geography here as Sinnoh is thus far the biggest region followed by either Hoenn or B2W2 Unova, followed by Kanto, and Johto is the smallest.

I seriously don't expect another Unova. Unova was meant to be a reboot of the series, and arguably Hoenn was also one thus them having the largest numbers. I don't think despite additions in Kalos that it's meant to be another reboot.

Agreed. Unova was something of an anomaly in my eyes, not something to be repeated or used as an example of future big generations. I don't think we'll ever see 150+ again.

I thin we will see from 80-100 Pokemon because of the quick-like release of the game.

Somewhere around 130 sounds right to me.

I expect it to be less than Hoenn's numbers but more than Johto, somewhere around Sinnoh works for me.

Also 80 is too little...and 130 is nearing too much imo.

So far we have 32 confirmed Pokemon counting the Starter's evolutions (even though we don't know what they are we know that 6 more can be added.)

If we believe Swirlix and Spritzee evolve then we can add 2 to 4 more bringing the count so far to 34-36. This is already a pretty healthy number. I'm expecting at least 3 to 4 times this when the games are actually released now so roughly in the area of 102 to 144.

Too many.

But really, I'll say 127 new Pokémon.

I expect some where between those numbers, like 123. It's a good number imo and is close to the number Sinnoh had.

I think it was confirmed that it would be over 750, but it may have been over 700.
We will not get less than 100 pokemon I am almost certain of. My guess is 130 to 140.

Also, I think there is also a similar thread, but I do not know the name of it exactly.

Considering the sheer size of the Kalos region (the Pokédex is split into three) while still maintaining that distance from other regions Unova had that gave it an excuse to fill it with completely new Pokémon at first, I would imagine it'd be close to 800 Pokémon, honestly.

Hi ps3smileyface, I merged your topic into this one as we already had a topic for dicussing how many new Pokémon we're going to get this generation. Be sure to search or look around the forum to see if there is a topic already existing for stuff you wanna discuss!

I'd personally be happy with somewhere between 115-125 new Pokémon. Not as small as what Johto gave us, but definitely not like giving us an entire new Pokédex, especially if we're going to have previous Pokémon in the Pokédex. At that point it'd just be way too many Pokémon in the regional Pokédex.

I think there will be 120-150 new pokemon. The region is so large, I'd be upset if it didn't have at least 120. Considering the PokeDex is split into 3 regions then 120 would be the perfect number, 40 new in each.

I originally was thinking about 60-80 new Pokémon, as that would give them less Pokémon to use a filler. But, with the reveal of the new Fairy type, I can see it being roughly 100-120 due to the new type.

I won't be happy if it's GenI/GenV levels though.

130 seems to much though. My guess is something less than Hoenn.

I'd give it about 150-200 new pokemon, and maybe 6 or so new legendaries.

A safe range would be around 120 or so, kind of like what Jake has pointed out. I don't expect too many new Pokemon, but at the same time, I don't expect there to be too few of them either, if that makes sense.

300

They usually add around 130 each new gen, not including Gen 5 which had only new Pokemon for BW. My guess is 137.

I'm guessing 120 new Kalos with the total Kalos dex being 300 or so.

Hey guys, the "Pokemon Game Show" confirmed that the Kalos Pokedex Guide Book would be 800 pages long. This may indicates that there will be a large number of new pokemon once again.

The Black/White guide had 592 or so pages and the Diamond/Pearl had about 483. Even if there is 1 pokemon per page, that suggests that there will be over 150 pokemon this generation.

They could have 100 pages for Megalutions (Which I do not see happening), but that is still a large number of new pokemon.

134, according to the random number generator that picked between 100 and 200.

Couldn't those pages also be made up of areas? Kalos does look like it's a big region, so I wouldn't be surprised if most of those pages were for the region and listing all the new mechanics, new type, and of course the methods of Megaevolutions.

This is true, but as you said a while ago, Sinnoh was the largest region to you before Kalos. But it still only had around 485 or so pages. You also said Unova was probably the close 2nd region, and it had 592 pages.

Even if 100 to 150 pages was the areas and new,mechanis, and type. (10 pages for new type,120 pages for areas, and 20 for megalutions.) This still leaves me in belief that there will be at the very least 130 to 150 pokemon. My main theory for this is this: The Pokedex guide books have had less pages than the total number of pokemon.
