Seems like pokemon isn't selling more than 200k in the rest of the year

It makes me wonder how much the franchise is dependent of Christmas gift effect compared to other Nintendo IPs

Pokemon are always released on Christmas season or at least very close to it and its first quarter sales are always mindblowing, but their catalog sales are weaker compared to other Nintendo IPs

Curious to see how a Pokemon game would perform if it was released in March like Animal Crossing. How much weaker would be the first quarter and how better would be it's legs in the next quarters
