Why people are still saying Pokemon flopped is beyond me.

Of course it didn't flop, but it has a lot of ground to make up to come even close to the other big Pokemon games/remakes/whatever.

Meanwhile, it is overperforming X/Y in otherseas markets so it's certainly not a fair comparaison. Technically it is selling on par with 3rd version such as Emerald and Crystal and above all other spin-off games. Game is doing really good, just not crazy mainline core good.
