An Analysis of the pokemon available in BW and its relevance to a potential RSEmake
by, 7th May 2011 at 04:40 PM (194 Views)
So several days ago, Mijzelffan and I started undergoing a process to check how many families of pokemon were available in each generation. As it would make sense for Game Freak to have left many of the pokemon available in RSE out of the post-E4 National Dex pokemon, I decided to check this. Here are the data:
A couple quick notes about the parameters:
- Because Johto is derptacular with respect to its pokedex, I only included pokemon that were added in GSC
- I also only included families of pokemon, just to normalize against families that have more pokemon in them than others.
- I excluded legendaries as all national de legendaries are unavailable in BW.
Kanto: 56 of 73 families available (77%)
Johto: 43 of 63 families available (68%)
Hoenn: 64 of 93 families available (69%)
Sinnoh: 42 of 66 families available (64%)
Sinnoh (Pt): 59 of 88 families available (67%)
Analysis: Ultimately, the data are inconclusive. With the exception of Kanto, the spread of percentages is incredibly close, and I cannot make any statement as to the viability of an RSE remake based on these data. Although the one thing the data seem to suggest is that a second remake of the first games is unlikely.
A big thanks to Mijzelffan for helping me write this up.
