Please say what you believe is misinformation so it can be corrected.

Hint: It's Pokemon Sun and Moon.

You could also thank me for spending my time getting the Black and White figures if you want.



Wow incredible! That‘s the selling power of a post Pokemon Go era Pkm game.

So if 2M japan then that would leave 4 m for US&Eu and rest of the world.

I suspect 2M US, 1.5M EU and 0.5 rest of the world.
So fastest selling Switch game in every region.



Also, apparently the double pack counted as one so the number shoud actually be higher.
Considering that and the fact that sun and moons number wasn‘t only its first week, I think it‘s safe to say that Sword&Shield are the biggest Pokemon launch of all time.



Hot damn!!!! Social media is about to get SPICY!!!!

Shipments should be 15m by end of the year.

It said 2mil for Japan. Does that include digital sales and shipments?

If that was the case wouldn't the PR be that, and not just "the biggest switch game launch"?

If it was the biggest pokemon launch of all time, it'd probably be Nintendo's biggest launch of all time.

It's sell-through physical+digital. Shipments aren't included.

I imagine that it is the full week (instead of three days) + digital.

We don’t even have a full week of data, it is definitely 3 days
