The latest Pokémon game of the main series did forego to launch a third version or sequel in favor of expansions, a fact that should lead to better legs than usual in theory, but on the other hand Pokémon's first foray into a full 3D world with a free camera lacked polish.
Here's the quarterly sales history of Pokémon Sword and Shield:
December 2019 - 16.06m/16.06m
March 2020 - 1.31m/17.37m
June 2020 - 0.85m/18.22m
September 2020 - 0.80m/19.02m
December 2020 - 1.33m/20.35m
March 2021 - 0.75m/21.10m
What are your lifetime sales expectations?
Bonus question: Did you bash Sword and Shield leading up to its release, but then ended up buying the game anyway?
