Forums - Sales Discussion - Pokemon: Let’s Go sells 116,000 copies in the first 3 days in UK

The UK is having stock problems. It probably would have outsold X/Y without these problems tbh.

Why was Sun/Moon so high? :O
And why was HGSS so low?

Also, woo Pikachu > Eevee. Eevee = shit and Pikachu = awesome!!!

20th anniversary and Pokemon Go.

Better than I expected. I wonder how digital compares to sun/moon and X/Y.

UK is not more than 5% of the Switch market. So it could be a 3M worldwide on first week, Japan is way more addicted to Pokemon than UK certainly.

Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TGM3 MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Western record on TGM3 EASY : 1484
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

Impressive for Let's Go. In comparison to Sun & Moon, Let's Go has a mixed label of being a spin-off and a mainline remake of Pokemon Yellow, along with being on the Switch, which likely had a lower install base in the UK compared to Sun & Moon by the time it released on 3DS. Plus, Sun & Moon had the Pokemon Go phenomenon at the peak of its powers and the 20th anniversary celebration, which helped a lot in marketing. For Let's Go, it will probably challenge (if not surpass) Sun & Moon for highest revenue for the franchise for the last two generations, with the fact the games are $60 or $100 if you add the Poke Ball plus (and the Poke Ball plus would probably sell well on its own, as well). Overall, its great for Let's Go.

Mighty impressive, this the lowest HW install base a Pokemon game has ever launched on a Nintendo system and at the highest price too. Not to mention it's not a new generation game. Gen 8 has a bright future, seems Pokemon ain't going anywhere.

60% down from sun/moon.... oof

Ya let's look at the outlier and not all the other games.

Ah... I glossed through the list and didnt play close attention. It didnt actually do that bad. But considering this is a gen 1 remake... I expected somewhat better. Being below gen 3 remakes is somewhat surprising.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

This game cost 60 $? Nice joke Nintendo, disgusting but nice.

Considering the hype around switch and Pokémon atm I'd say that was an alright opening. Not amazing but not bad either.
