Along with the people who came up with good character designs.

They were in the same car.

Let this be a lesson to all of us. Seatbelts save both lives and videogame franchises.

Wasn't 150 enough? I just read on wikipedia there are 500 now. Jesus, they just couldn't leave a good thing alone...

I dont mind them adding more as it seems to further balance the game each time. If they didn't add new pokemon whats the point of continuing the series. It's about finding new combinations Although they do tend to make a few to many Water/Ice type heck Water it's self is over represented.

maybe it simply has to do with the fact that there is so much more ocean than land, so water pokemon are more abundant. I'm not sure whether they thought of it like that though. The sapphire and ruby versions kind of have to do with that don't they? Maybe I'm totally wrong  :P

Well, using the real world as a model there should be more bug pokemon than anything else. There should also be a retardedly ridiculous number of bat pokemon.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Can't they just the 1 starter water type then maybe 1 or 2 new water types (Say one for each version) then just reuse some old favorites to catch. leave room to increase the weaker types.

Alright, they're adding new pokemon, right? They're not changing any out? I liked the original 150 (152, depending on how you look at it).

Yeah, all of the old ones are still there.

In fact, almost all of the old ones are obtainable in D/P without even having to transfer from your old games. Apart from the starters and legendaries, of course.
