UK chart publication GFK Chart Track have declared that Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire are both the UK’s biggest Pokemon launch of all time. The previous record holder was Pokemon Black and Pokemon White on the Nintendo DS. Sales for Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire were up on last year’s Nintendo 3DS title Pokemon X & Y by 17 percent. You can view which games were most popular this Black Friday in the UK, here.
Does this really surprise anyone? Odds are the next Pokémon game to launch will do just as well if not better. Gamefreak knows how to make good games.
Best selling Pokemon generations go 1st gen with 30 something mill, 2nd gen with 23 mill and 3rd gen with 15.85 mill.
These are overall sales, so I would say Pokemon generations do not always surpass their predecessors.
Hardly a fair comparison when you’re looking at OVERALL sales numbers. Of course remaining generations will have higher numbers. They’ve been out YEARS longer.
Snart vil vi ta over hele stor Britannia!
Ja, ikke lenge til!
I’m sure it was already super hyped over there…..but I feel like watching NA get it first, and seeing all those spoilers during that first week made loads more people even more hyped for it…..Hoenn deserved to be this hyped up though. After the flop that was X and Y in terms of it’s ridiculously linear gameplay, boring storyline and terrible postgame……this is such a step up. If the Battle Frontier, the rest of the looker storyline, and mini storylines involving volcanion and hoopa pop up later on this game will be even better then B2W2…..
I really liked X and Y. Got over sixty hours in that game.. It wasn’t the best Pokemon ever, but it was far from a flop..
Nintendo should remake Blue with MissingNo. as a real pokemon
I am still waiting for news on the Battle Frontier. Hopefully it’s DLC that is coming sometime. The Battle Frontier was the best thing about gen 3 and I know gamefreak won’t make Delta Emerald anytime soon.
Well duh it’s the best generation.
I never played the originals, so i’m pretty excited to play these..
easy mann Zelda skyward sword too bit new record with sold copies in relase data (and was the best selling zelda in histori) and stop on 4 mln copies i thin ORAS grow up to 10-12 and stop. Now is hype on some titles from nintendo and that are the best selling and nohting more. Who want buy it bought in relase day that same is on Xbox and PS.
I think nothing bit sold out 1 gen and 2.
