As in Shipped+Digital just to make clarification. Seems as "sold in" is the way to say it now lol. Anywayz first predicitions and then breakdowns....

 

Road to 18mil in just a month! (Or somewhat close to it like 17mil+) anywayzzzzzzzzzzzz

 

18.0mil: Worldwide 🌎

4.3mil:   Japan

3.9mil:   Europe

8.9mil:   NoA

0.9mil:   RotW (Asia/Aust/NZ/etc)

 

 

With sales now pokemon SuMo has done at least 10mil now (sold in). 

 

I believe dec will be a very strong month more than usual as pokemon is the hot item this holiday. With small hints from gamestop and amazon it does appear to be continuing well into dec from its nov launch. Also unlike XY thia game is having good reception.

 

That said japan i believ will be on par with xy but the game elsewhere will explode especially in Europe/RotW compared to previous games.

 

Of course the most important in volume will be from NoA as the 8.9mil prediction is literally much bigger than everywhere else.

 

Stay tuned to say i was wrong!

Not sure about that..... but im believing more in your 15mil thread XD



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I think 18 million is a little to much in only 7 weeks. Also, why do you think it will sell so much more in Nord Amerika than it will in Europe and Japan?


(By the way, XY has the same metascore as Sun/Moon)

Well tbf many of us thought 10m in two weeks was too much but we were proven wrong on that count.



That Japan number seems a bit too high, even if it is shipped.But otherwise seems plausible.I personally think it will be close to 15 million than 18 million, but both could happen.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Metascore means nothing to the millions of fans in the series. At least from what i can tell everyone worse generation seems to be XY. While hardly any complaints come from sun/moon. At least to my understanding. Even i see the quality difference between the 2.

 

Anywayz because of right now we have NoA at 3.7mil (though its 10 days vs Europes 5 days) while europe is 1.5mil. Japan is tracking below xy but i think itll pull evenly with shipments. NoA at 3.7mil sold should have about 5mil shipment if not more and i think theyll ship another 4mil with how much the game is proving to be a major hit.

I think 15mil is a good bet. Like i posted this is def a bold prediction especially since 10mil has to jump up 8mil in a month. That said 18mil is reachable but will it hit? Well find out soon enough



That is bold. You may recall I was hopeful of 15m+. 18 is a ways up there, through. That would be a huge holiday season.

Okay... let's be honest. Sun/Moon has already had a huge launch.

Yeap starts off with 10mil that needs to be sold pf course but we know that around if not more than 7.5mil have been sold tru in under 2 weeks (1week in europe). 

 

Dec needs to have a huge impact, if it can manage to overall have a slighlty better month of sales than its op, it would mean the games sold somewhere in the ballpark of 15mil-16mil which is bold in itself. That said if it does reach that high an extra 2mil wouldnt be out of the question for store shelves no?



Definitely a bold prediction.. I doubt this will happen
