I think that Pokemon will sell more out of the gate, but that the annual or bi-annual releases will cut it's legs shorts. Sun and Moon seriously could have outsold Diamond and Pearl if not for Ultra Sun and Moon. Animal Crossing will sell more than Sword and Shield lifetime.

I dont really understand this line of thinking.

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl & Black/White sold more than Animal Crossing: Wild World on DS and Pokemon X/Y & Sun/Moon sold more than Animal Crossing: New Leaf on 3DS.

Annual/bi-annual releases of Pokemon did not prevent it from outselling Animal Crossing on DS or 3DS so I dont see why that would change on Switch.


My argument wasn't even based around that xD Literally all I was mentioning was that Sun and Moons' legs were cut short, and the same will happen with Pokemon here (where Sword and Shield could easily sell 22+ million, but won't because of another game soon after). 

The argument isn't that alone will make Animal Crossing sell better. The argument is that Animal Crossing will already see a massive increase in sales similar to Mario/Zelda/Splatoon, AND the fact that Sword and Shield will get a successor soon after (even if it isn't a direct sequel) will make Animal Crossing win.
