Will Pokemon Go have an impact on Sun and Moon sales?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will Pokemon Go have an impact on Sun and Moon sales?

Im not sure about if people will buy a 3ds/2ds because of GO, but people who already have one will definetly be influenced and get sun/moon. Right now pokemon is like 15-20%( I think) atach rate on the 3ds, I can see that going up a lot for sun and moon, even for te current pokemon games already available.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I believe so.

The real effect of GO is getting people to broach the subject of Pokemon without fear of ridicule, then realising just how many people are also actually Pokemon fans, too scared to embrace it.

I think that would only take 2-3 people you encouter that will get it and will probabbbly make you want to get it. And since people are asembleling like ccrazzy at poke stops, tey will talk and probably plan on getting it if they want to actually play it. 

Basicly just having a good group you can battle in person. Online battles I dont think did any good to pokemon.

I think the entry price point for the 3DS is low enough to bring in extra new/lapsed fans of Pokemon that are now into the series because of GO.

It'll start getting colder by November when Sun/Moon launches - people will want to continue their Pokemon adventure!



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

I certainly say it can't hurt, but yes, I think it will. It will likely reinvigorate interest in the Pokemon games and IP across the board. I'm not going to say how much, but I'm willing to bet between 10 to 20% increase at least.



Off-hand I've seen/heard some people say that they haven't played a Pokemon game in years and are interested in playing Sun & Moon. Obviously I can't be sure how it applies to the general population, but I do think it will at least have at least a small effect on the games.
