Smash having a strong start. Let's Go, Eeve! not even close to Let's Go, Pikachu!
1 point for KH3, nice.

which is even more surprising considering Japan is supposed to be the country where Eevee is more popular

Downward sprial? USUM sold better than Crystal and Emerald, it'll pass Platinum soon, and it's currently only 650k behind B2/W2, games that had actual effort put into them. USUM was incredibly lazy and still put up numbers on par with the previous third versions and sequels. Not to mention, SuMo released after Pokemon Go and managed to outsell R/S and B/W, both of which launched on larger userbases (significantly larger in B/W's case). Even though Diamond and Pearl were on a console that sold 80 million units more than 3DS, the games only managed to sell 1.38 million units more than X/Y, and 1.57 million more than SuMo. The core series has not seen any decline, and in addition, Pokemon Go has multiplied the Pokemon Company's annual profits by a factor of 8 compared to the previous decade. As a franchise, Pokemon is in a stronger position right now than it has been in at any point since 2002.

USUM are two games. 

Sun and Moon failed to sell more than X&Y I don’t need to say anything more.

 

The games have been STAGNANT for a while now despite the desperate efforts of Gamefreak trying to appeal to young gamers each and every time. User base are exactly the same leaning even older with Sun and Moon.

Instead of trying to appeal to the demographic they have. They tried many many times to the younger markets. Sooner or later people will get tired of that. 

Its already happening. Forums, youtubers esp of Pokémon content are falling out. (Trust me I used to be on Pokémon forums. They are mostly dead and smogon isn’t the same at all.) YouTube people I used to follow completely stopped making Pokémon content or just play only old Pokémon games or moved on to smash. 

 

Nostaglia leaning, causal grabbing, same old formula will be the death of the core franchise. 

By like 190k lol, and how many extra years did X and Y have since release of Sun and Moon? Like 3. Not to mention X and Y didn't get third versions like Sun and Moon which sold a further 7.51 million copies.

quite the debut by smash! Impressive.

Honestly a bit surprised we didnt see all Pokemon SKUs on the chart.. guess they will come, at some point.



I think the Pokemon preorders will mean nothing in the long term. I still expect at 2 million minimum LTD in japan for the games.

Should have gone with TNT instead of Thunderstruck imo. But anyway, now it's gonna be a runaway Rock 'n Roll Train

That is weird...maybe the other two for Pokémon are digital versions?

Nintendo is actually releasing game cases with digital codes for both Smash and Pokemon. Not sure if that means much to these charts though.

From what I have seen each version has another SKU with an amazon preorder bonus. And there is a double pack as well.

So we have:

Pikachu + Pokeball (amazon bonus)
Pikachu + Pokeball
Pikachu (amazon bonus)
Pikachu

Evey + Pokeball (amazon bonus)
Evey + Pokeball
Evey (amazon bonus)
Evey

Doublepack + 2 Pokeballs
Doublepack

Also ALL of those are in the amazon JP top 100 currently. Lowest is the regular doublepack at #77
6 of those are in the top 20.

Wow! Thank You! And that is CRAZY!

Am wondering how long Etrian can hold on to top spot at the top of the charts against Smash. My prediction? Until Boutros posts the charts tonight. I also predict at least 2 more lets' so SKUs entering the charts next update.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!
