  1. I plan on purchasing Pokemon Scarlet and Violet as physical eventually, for now i went with digital because i tried getting Legend Arceus as physical at release and every retailer was sold out. This only makes me think i made the right decision between Pokemon Scarlet and Violet selling like hot cakes because of it being a hot item this holiday season and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday getting a physical copy probably wouldn’t be an easy task to accomplish. I know, because i seen a segment on Good Morning America that said Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is a hot item this holiday season so it must be official.

  2. Bought the double pack and I’m enjoying it. I do agree with some of the valid criticism, haven’t experienced these major glitches. What people should have done instead of asking for refunds on this game is they should have done that with CoD and Battlefield as they are infinitely worse plus you don’t get the full game, you get 1/5 of it and the rest is locked behind multiple paywalls but that’s none of my business.

  3. The success of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is no surprise, considering the popularity of the franchise. You can find people of all ages playing the games, from children to adults. The games have an attractive, varied art style and a wide range of Pokémon to catch. Plus, the games have a strong focus on storytelling, which is something that many fans love.

    As well as the boxed copies, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet also sold over 1.7 million non-boxed digital copies. This means that the two games have sold over 4.4 million copies worldwide.

    The success of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is testament to the strength of the franchise. People of all ages and from all walks of life enjoy playing the games, and it’s clear that the series will remain popular for many years to come.
