... as revealed by Serebii. In short, the golden number is 445, or all past Pokemon BUT the starters and previous legendaries. That's just nifty ^^ That said, there are still the three event Legendaries in D/P, as well as Manaphy (and therefore Fione as well) if you're a non-Japan resident or weren't lucky enough to get it via the Ranger event. There are also a number of Pokemon who only appear when a specific GBA cart is in the DS. So... if you don't have anyone to trade with and don't own any of the previous games, the number is a lot less. If you do have the previous games and WFC access, the amount of included Pokemon was never that big a deal (nor is being unable to get the starters and past legends). But still. There's something to be said for the games doing this considering that R/S excluded a hoard of the older Pokemon.
