During Nintendo’s morning corporate strategy meeting in Japan, it was announced that Pokemon Sun and Moon have sold over 13 million copies. To the surprise of many, it was also indicated that 17% of people who bought Sun and Moon also bought their first handheld Pokémon title. This will go a long way for Nintendo and The Pokemon Company, as Pokemon doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon amidst fears that the franchise wasn’t focused on the new ‘generation’ of gamer.

We can only predict the extent of influence Pokémon GO on these sales, and it appears that the mobile game helped tremendously.
