VGW: Now I’m no mathemagician, but that would bring the monster count up to about 850, and then it would not be a far cry from 1000. Gotta catch ‘em all? Yikes! Public opinion on the newest batch of Pokemon from Pokemon Black and White have been mixed with some being great new additions to the series while others such as Trubbish, a monster designed to look like a garbage bag, is widely derided. As someone who played the series in its early days and recently rediscovered it, I have to agree that some newer monsters just aren’t of the design quality of the original. However, I would chalk the actual dismissal of newer monsters by older gamers up to a generational gap between versions, with people very attached to the original 150 dismissing each new brood.
