Pokemon doing sooo well! I wonder if a massive Pokemon Go update will be before SM or after SM gets released.



Pocky Lover Boy!

Whether you want to call it milked rather than long running is up to you, but Pokemon is far less milked than Call of Duty.  Since it's start in 1996, Pokemon has had 6 mainline entries (about to be 7), 9 if you count remasters.  Call of Duty on the other hand has had 13 mainline entries not counting ports/remasters all just in the times since it's start in 2004.  Thats twice as many games in just a little over half the timespan.

Has it really only been 6? And Pokemon is pretty slick though making 2 versions of the same game to entice people to get both just to be able to get all the pokemon. But has it really only been 6 since the GB? And you are counting like sun/monn as one game right?

Tbh only a small percentage buy 2 copies (pairs), nowadays its easy to get stuff from other games via trade online. That said look at sales in general, they are just plain huge. Lowest mainline game sold 15.62mil. All 3 remakes are 12mil+ including the last one which will hit 14mil lifetime :)

Funny how Pokémon is more a milked franchise than CoD....milked series always sell best lol

and IW is far from a bomb in the U.K.....it's the second biggest release this year by a big margin.

Pokémon has had 14-17 games on handhelds.....in 18 years......6-7 games on console. If that's not milked....than I don't know what I milked series is lol Red/Green/Blue you had to buy separately....not as one game. A franchise isn't just mainline games either....milking means the franchise as a whole obviously.

But splitscreen fun.

And my prediction is now perfectly aligned! Now all we have to see is if it can hit number #01 because I gave that a 'possibly'.

99% impossible  because  of Pokemon.

Improbable, not impossible.

Ok is it just me, or does it seem that this year there is a concerted effort by the various big names to dethrone Call of Duty and carve up the November empire? I mean, in late October through November we have Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Pokemon, Skyrim Special Edition, Final Fantasy XV, Watch Dogs 2, Dishonored 2, and more, a lot of which would normally have been pushed to January through March. My guess is this may tie in to the extreme backlash against Infinite Warfare that has plunged CoD interest levels seemingly to below the post-Ghosts levels that Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 had to drag the series back up from. I suppose when there's blood in the water, the sharks will come.
