The most recent iterations in the Pokémon game series, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have been performing exceptionally well in terms of sales, with the latest news emerging that the two games have outsold Pokémon Crystal and Emerald.
This means that they are now the second best-selling “third versions” of the Pokémon series, with the two selling a combined amount of 7.17 million copies.
Here are the rest of the stats for other titles in comparison:
- Pokémon Crystal: 6.39m (as of 12/2014)
- Pokémon Emerald: 7.06m (as of 03/2013)
- Pokémon Platinum: 7.60m (as of 12/2014)
This is good news for Game Freak and the Pokémon franchise, especially considering that there was initially some skepticism surrounding the launch of the “Ultra” versions of Sun and Moon.
