Those Pokemon sales are impressive. What bothers me though is that Black 2 did worse than Ultra Moon. I guess we are not getting sequel versions anymore with data like that. Oh well.

Pokemon on Switch should be a big jump. We are going from a 6th generation technology to a 8th generation technology. It will also have 16 GB to play with. So much excitement!

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

extremely impressive Pokemon numbers for the 3DS titles considering the DS has sold like 2x+ the number of systems. Just goes to show the Pokemon fanbase is extremely loyal and consistent. Expect similar numbers for the Switch iterations 



3ds numbers are higher, you're not counting downloads... It's at least 10% more.

The Black 2/White 2 number is for Japan alone, because it launched there months before it launched anywhere else. Ultra SuMo is pretty far behind, launches aligned.



So I guess we can expect 15M-20M for the next Pokémon game on Switch ... excellent !

I have doubts that GameFreak will use the new technology they have at their fingertips in any above-average-ways. Here's hoping they aren't lazy about this 3DS to Switch jump.

"Hoping Game Freak isn't lazy" yeah, it's what we've all been saying for the better part of two decades.



They both did really well

Switch version will be probably at a higher price-point so will be interesting to see if it will affect sales in any way

Good!   I think everyone was a bit disappointed that we didn't get a Moon 2. Especially for the fact that it felt like they were teasing it.

I can see where you are coming from. Still an average look HD game is still a big jump from the 3DS games and their 240p screens. Honestly I am more worried about them rushing the game. If they started development on the Switch version in 2016 it will barely have two years of development time if it releases in 2018.
