The following is from a My Nintendo News Article:
“The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have shipped more than 10 million units ofPokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon worldwide, setting a new record as the best selling titles in Nintendo 3DS history.
These sales figures represent a 150% increase over the last Pokémon games to launch, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.”
That is pretty incredible how many copies of Sun and Moon have shipped worldwide! I can only imagine that it is partially due to the success of Pokemon Go!
