Pretty sure majority came from probably the anime, movies or non-gaming merchandise.

 

I know that. But it doesn't answer my question.

So much money and how long is it gonna take them to reveal footage of the new pokemon?! It's driving me crazy!

We had trailers from X and Y almost a year before release. Sun and moon are about 6 months from release. It's insane!

Oh fuck! Thats awesome!

What games did they release last year? Is it just that Dungeon one which I forgot the name of!

Pokemon Shuffle (3DS/iOS/Android), Pokemon Rumble World (3DS), Pokken Tournament (Arcade), Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS), Pokemon Picross (3DS), Pokemon Trading Card Game Online (Android).



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

33% ?

But presumingly they'd get a higher share of the revenue due to them being the publisher of the Pokemon games, right?

they own 33, and creatures inc 33 just like gamefreak... but! nintendo owns creatures inc, so 66%

You sure about that? I mean, if Nintendo owned Creatures inc then surely they'd be listed as a Nintendo subsidiary, no? But they're not. They aren't even listed as an affiliated company, although the Pokemon Company are listed as an affiliate at 32% ownership http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1072343

I expect Nintendo own some of Creatures inc. but if it was a significant amount then I expect firstly they would be listed as a Nintendo subsidiary on official documents and secondly they would just transfer their share of the Pokemon Company over to Nintendo proper.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Thankyou! And that is quite a lot! I guess this year will be bigger since its their anniversary + S&M + Pokken + Go!

100% sure, Nintendo owns creature INC but they work as they own entity, like let's say, the mariners.

If you think that fair enough.

I personally won't consider them to be owned by Nintendo until there's actually some proof though...

Honestly, the question of how much Nintendo owns Pokemon is up in the air. Pokemon is owned by GameFreak, The Pokemon Company, and Creatures (I believe). GameFreak is its own thing while The Pokemon Company itself is 100% Nintendo, Creatures is where it gets muddy I believe. 

But yeah it's been debated to death on how much Nintendo owns Pokemon



Pokemon being a money printer is no news.

I mean, it's 20 years like that now
