I have to admit, I was a little iffy about the low amount of new Pokemon at first. I come from generations that added easily 150+, so 73(ish) seemed like too little.
But then I actually got to playing the game, and, well, there were no lack of choices. At first I planned to build a Kalos-exclusive in-game team, but I actually struggled trying to decide who I wanted and balancing weaknesses with the new gen VI 'mons. There were too many that I wanted to use and not enough space, so in the end I went for a mixed bag.
I suppose what I'm trying to say here is that the 70-or-so we got is enough in the long run. Besides, at least this way the Pokedex isn't so much of a pain to complete XD
