So another 10M+ seller for Switch. But I don't see it reaching 20. Maybe 15+. Depends on what GameFreak is doing next.

Maybe 15+? Every Pokemon gen has sold over 15m



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I was thinking the same thing when I read that, based on this opening it’s not going to have any issues getting to 15...



That's insane, just proves the complaints about Dexit were an extreme vocal minority

Yep, anecdotal evidence but all my friends who like Pokemon were happy with the choice because they think there are way too many Pokemon as it is.

For a launch week? Yes

We need to see how the legs work. 

If Long tail sales is good. Then you right



frankly only a minority cared about these socalled nerfs

the same minority that doesn't buy CoD yearly

WTF? How do these games only manage to sell in the range of 15 million with these openings? Those are some weak legs.

Wow so 2 mil in Japan? Guess those Amazon and Nintendo store unknowns made an impact after all!

Great opening week. I am sure this was much higher than many people were thinking.

Pretty much this. We may have lost roughly half the national dex, but the remaining half of the national dex is still a freakishly huge amount of mons. People need to stop pretending that having 'only' 400+ Pokémon (which is still 100+ more than the Sun and Moon dex had to offer!) means that the games are lacking in content.
