Pokémon Sun & Moon Become Fastest-Selling Pokémon Titles in Nintendo History

Sun and Moon are the fastest selling Pokémon games in Nintendo history!

Its Pokémon fever all over again, and Pokémon Sun and Moon are the latest batch of Pokémon games released on the Nintendo 3DS. Breaking sales records for Nintendo, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are the “fastest-selling” Pokémon games in Nintendo’s history in the Americas. Selling a total of 3.7 million copies in less than two weeks of launch, Pokémon Sun and Moon sales were up 85% over Pokémon X and Y launch figures.

“With these huge sales figures, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have proved themselves as two of the hottest video games to buy this holiday season,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

There’s no doubt that Pokémon Sun and Moon are insanely popular right now with gamers. With the successful launch of Pokémon GO on mobile devices earlier this year, Pokémon’s popularity is at an all time high right now. Both new and old players got captured into the sudden phenomenon that was Pokémon GO, proving that Pokémon has always been cool since the days of the original Gameboy games.
