How Many Units Has Pokemon Sold, Again?
We all know Pokemon is a best-selling handheld series, but how many games has the popular monster collecting RPG franchise sold? According to the Japanese site Game Talk by way of The Pokemon Company, it appears the main Pokemon game series has sold more than 200 million units.
If you throw in spin-offs, the series has actually sold over 279 million units. That's a LOT of Pokemon games, and another handheld victory! This year was the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon series, celebrated back on February 26 since that's the day back in 1996 when both Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue debuted.
Now we're getting Pokemon Sun and Moon later this year. It's a great time to be a Pokemon fan for sure. Here's to a whole lot more sales, and that's for purely selfish reasons. I just want to keep being able to play them!
