The latest batch of mainline Pokemon games Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet may have had a rocky launch tech-wise, but they have performed incredibly well at retail. The latest Japanese sales figures for the retail versions of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet show that the newer games have surpassed Pokemon Sword & Shield sales in just eight weeks. Pokemon Sword & Shield have been on the market for three years now. Earlier today, The Pokemon Company said that they will be deploying a large update for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet towards the end of February . It’s not clear what will be fixed and added at this moment in time.
