The shipped/sold issue is what I was going to bring up next. I found a graphic online for sold figures for the Pokemon games but I haven't verified the numbers yet.
What's there to verify when it is an image from an earlier Nintendo presentation to investors? 12.28m sell-through through nine weeks is obviously less than AC's 13.41m through only six weeks. If I had remembered that particular image, I could have saved myself the time to do deductive reasoning from shipment numbers.
