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

pokemon lets go costs 50% more than sun and moon so the profits are the same roughly and sun and moon came out when there were way more 3Ds sold than switch consoles. this game is a total success 

More like 33%, but regardless, Let's Go is likely to make up for it with revenue and profit. Plus you have the Poke Ball Plus to consider. A pretty good amount of preorders for Let's Go are likely with the Poke Ball Plus bundle.

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

Hype? This was the least hyped pokemon game of all time. Its a remake as well (of a third version) and to top it off ironically made a killing in $$$.

 

If you break it down pokemon lets go probably profited about the same as sun and moon and it definelty outdid XY

What are you talking about?!

You are right!!! The 3DS games cost $40, 50% from $40 are $20. So when you say that lets go costs 50% more than sun&moon, you are right, because 60 are 50% bigger than 40.

KaiMao sentence would be correct only if he was saying that sun&moon costs 33% less than lets go.

Yea your second statement is what I meant.



The very fact that this is being compared to the sales of mainline entries is extremely impressive. This is basically a spinoff game that is selling like a mainline game. Is there any other Pokemon spinoff game that sells even close to the main series?

I said Pokémon hype. And after Pokémon go and Pokémon sun/moon the hype for the series is at a real high point. Same for switch so couple them together and i wouldn't expect this to do any less. 



It's all thanks to Ryan Reynolds.
