Hate me all ya want but it has to be said, these sales are very much undeserved. I fear for the future of this franchise now that GameFreak knows they can get away with being even greedier and lazier than usual.

Based on what exactly?

Game has good critics and actual impressions of people that are playing this game are very positive, some people calling this game best Pokemon in years.

Only the game itself of course. What reviewers say ain't gonna change the fact that it has far less content and gameplay depth than prior installments, yet it cost more. Who exactly is calling it the best Pokemon game? This I gotta know!

Sure but I have to think you'd have just as much fun if not moreso with any other Pokemon game, unless you're only in it for nostalgia or playing on the TV.



And yet again, Nintendo proves that we should never underestimate the power of their software. Biggest launch in UK (Nintendo's weakest market in Europe) for a Switch game O_o



Very strong start!

It has enough content in any case, and gameplay is very fun and satisfied, its first HD Pokemon game, it's good game in any case. So I dont see how sales can undersized, if game is bad than you would have point.

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

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

Sun/Moon released towards the end of the generation (therefore could take advantage of a big and established installed base) and benefited from Pokémon Go (back catalogue sales of X/Y and OR/AS also increased notably due to Go).

HG/SS released at a time when first week sales in general weren't as high as they are nowadays. It's a general trend for most of the popular IPs to have improving launch week sales over time.

On topic: Those are very good numbers in comparison to X/Y. Launch-aligned to system's life, Let's Go launched one year earlier than X/Y on top of Switch trailing the 3DS through ~20 months.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Uh dude, I am very clearly saying it's bad. To reiterate, Let's Go is essentially Sun/Moon with 20% of the content for 1.5x the price. I don't know how you can honestly and reasonably say that's good even if you like the game. I still wanna know who called it the best Pokemon game, I'm very curious about what drugs they are on, or did you just make that up?

For me only the sales and mass addiction is interesting to observe. I think these 2 games are shit and retarded...And then I see so many people shitting on the remake of Secret of Mana...No comment. I have watched every trailers of these Pokemons, I tried to get interested watching some gameplays, and I can't sorry..I was able to change my mind really about SSB because I really believe now that this game is accurate and deep, but Pokemon ? hell no. The name and phenomen "Pokemon" destroyed the UK charts, not the game itself.

Don't bother with him he hasn't even played the game.
