This would mean if they keep the bit-amount the same, then you can have 4095 Pokemon excluding 000.
it's two bytes. 65535.

So you think the system will magically stop working just because they've run out of numbers?
Why does that sound almost familiar?

Oh yeah... Y2K

Eh? 256. One of those junk ones is an egg, I think, but that still leaves four more.

Is there a limit to making pokémon? 649 is getting pretty fucking high, imo.

250+one we're pretending is a secret is a prettier number than 255, though.

I don't know quite as much about gen 2 data structure as I used to, though; all I really remember is that they were so wasteful, they used an entire byte for a two-state flag.

Perhaps they'll redesign the Pokédex to contain evolutionary lines instead of Pokémon (001-1, 001-2, 001-3, etc.)? :3

IIRC there's at least one Glitch 'Mon in GSC, though I doubt that was meant to be placed in.

Changing to four-digit numerations would be the next logical step, though I would most certainly not be surprised if they required scientific notation to keep track of the Pokemon by the end of a handful of years.

Ever heard of the Pokemon reset theory or whatever? (I heard of it from some random yt channel) that is what I think is going to happen. Remakes of everything, and the release of Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee also supports this
