Pokemon X/Y sales through the roof

Pokemon X/Y sales through the roof

Pokemon X/Y has been on store shelves for nearly 1 week so it might be a good time to see how just well it’s selling so far. Nintendo have gone into chest thumping mode and for good reason. Nintendo are declaring that sales have topped over 4 million units of Pokemon X/Y since launch.


This figure is taking into account Europe, the Americas and of course, Japan from October 12 through to October 13. As a basis of comparison, here’s how other Pokemon releases have sold since launching in 2002.

Title     Platform     Total Global Sales
Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl     Nintendo DS     17.63 Million
Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire     Game Boy Advance     16.22 Million
Pokémon Black and Pokémon White     Nintendo DS     15.42 Million
Pokémon HeartGold and Pokémon SoulSilver     Nintendo DS     12.67 Million
