"Expanded" Hoenn Dex to feature 209 Pokémon?
Serebii updated his new Hoenn Dex page with the Milotic, Raichu and Salamence lines based on new screenshots, and their Dex numbers have been incremented only slightly, suggesting that the much-wanted expansion may be absolutely nonexistent beyond evos and pre-evos of Pokémon present in the original Hoenn Dex. Indeed, if you insert Gallade, Probopass, Magnezone, Budew, Roserade, Dusknoir, Chingling, Rhyperior and Froslass with their respective lines, the new numbers match up perfectly. And it's safe to assume that if any new Pokémon were added to the Hoenn Dex, they would've been inserted in a similar fashion along with the Pokémon they could be found in the same area as. So ultimately, it's extremely likely that what we'll get in the main game are the 200 from RSE, as well as the aforementioned nine, and anything more we might get (such as Lopunny, presumably) will be found in the post-game. Maybe the Safari Zone?
