Why people are still saying Pokemon flopped is beyond me.

Of course it didn't flop, but it has a lot of ground to make up to come even close to the other big Pokemon games/remakes/whatever.

Meanwhile, it is overperforming X/Y in otherseas markets so it's certainly not a fair comparaison. Technically it is selling on par with 3rd version such as Emerald and Crystal and above all other spin-off games. Game is doing really good, just not crazy mainline core good.

I mean, this isn't the thread to discuss overseas markets otherwise there would be talk of how PS4 is dominating the global sales. This is the Japan sales thread.

Funny you say that cuz there's always someone to discuss this point ... although it doesn't seem like our froggy is here yet.

You just switched from saying Smash should do this to it can do those numbers because of the time of year. My response was to your belief Smash will move a lot of console and nothing more. It is an ambitious line of thinking (that means your specific thought expressed). I do not believe Smash will sell a lot of consoles; however, it is quite possible that the time of year has a big affect on sales next week.

I don't think anything worth mentioning released in week 49 last year so we should be able to see what kind of boost Smash brought to the Switch by comparing next week's number to last year's.

Wasn't that week last year Xenoblades Chronicles 2 release?

No this week (week 48) last year was Xenoblade Chronicles 2 release date.
