During the “Pokémon Game Show” just held at the Tokyo Big Sight The Pokémon Company released an interesting piece of data. As of March the 31st the critter training and collecting franchise has sold over 172,000,000 units worldwide.
Pokemon! Gotta catch 'em all!
Apparently so, this is so crazy and there is no sign of this slowing down anytime soon. I can only imagine how popular those Pokemon Rumble figures will be too. Yeah Nintendo isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
If Dev's were smart they would realize this one thing: * We really love RPG's, but a lot of people don't even know it. I didn't know Pokemon RED was an RPG or even what an RPG was my first time playing it, but I loved it and it was addicting. We like simplified RPG's with easy battle systems, bright colorful art styles, and tons of stuff to do or content to explore. Yet we will get 100 more crappy action games next year on various platforms, of which 10 will be worth playing. " I got shoe ! "
I really wish they'd create a console RPG. Would be amazing on Wii U. Would love to see what online community they come up with.
That is incredible!
Great series, for the most part. Definitely gonna get Pokemon X
Pokemon Red was the first game ever purchased for me. Went into Toys R Us thinking I was getting a Bike, walked out with Pokemon Red. Good times...goooood times.
So much better than a Bike lol
Technically he still walked out with a bike ;D
^ Waaaaayyyy nice! xD
I would be all over a yellow remake.Make it happen Gamefreak.
I'm proud to be able to say I was able to buy a pokemon game from every gen and be apart of the pokemon boom during the late 90s- early 2000s. The anime back then was my favorite thing to watch.
This man speaks the truth.Same here. I don't if you seen this or not.But Pokemon is starting another series that follows the red and blue games along with the manga :D. http://youtu.be/_Lyi2RSVxqg
wow i dont watch pokemon, lol, but that looks pretty awesome
Won't be too long until that comes out. In the description it said October 2nd. I hope it takes me back to my childhood.
I think it's a one off episode, but fingers crossed they make it a series, because that would be awesome.
Yup I've seen it! The manga it greatly superior to the anime so then new anime should be great.
That's a lot of units.
If that last part of the video is a indication of a Wii U game they will prob sell a few more million units and move Wii U systems as well.
probably a brief screen of Stadium-Colosseum-Battle Revolution type game nothing like main games on Handheld
Ill never forget the moment i caught my 150th pokemon. It was a scyther. I stood up on the school bus and yelled like i was in a shitty nintendo commercial. Then i used a gameshark to get a mew and started selling them for 5 bucks with my link cable
Only good versions were red and blue, The rest feel like a milkfest to me =/ Though the show and movies were good back in the day! <3 VHS Shame the cartoons went too far!
I remember having Pokémon blue with a purple Gameboy color, it brings back memories of tamagotchi and digimon, they all were the big craze back in my school days. Good times.
Nintendo got the kids on lockdown with pokemom. Who am I kidding they have me on lockdown too and I'm somewhat grown
pokemon will forever have a place in my heart even tho i retired
