On October 8, remarkable leaker Riddler_Khu tweeted a cryptic equation meant to reveal the number of Pokemon in the Scarlet & Violet Pokedex. It said “297 + 103 = 400 (and 40+)”.

This riddle was easily deciphered by the Pokemon community and reportedly reveals the number of new and returning Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet. Players believe that the regional Pokedex will contain a total of 400 Pokemon, of which 297 are returning species and 103 are brand new Pokemon.

So far, 17 new Pokemon have been revealed, meaning players still have 86 new creatures to look forward to. However, a recent trailer gave players a few glimpses of undisclosed Pokemon hidden in the background.

That said, these are just leaks and we won’t know for sure the size of the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex until the game comes out next month.
