I said pokemon would, not smash. it would would fall of a cliff for a nintendo game which have the best legs in the industry. of course though any of my posts are gonna be highly scrutinized by you.
Stop playing the victim, you said pokemon would fall off a cliff yet predict it will sell 3-4x its first week sales which is right in line with the series past.
X/Y sold ~4m first week, lifetime is ~16m.
OR/AS sold ~3.5m first week, lifetime is ~14m.
S/M sold ~5m first week, lifetime is ~16m.
US/UM sold ~2m first week, lifetime is ~8m.
3-4x first week sales was normal for all the 3DS entries.
