Pokemon X and Y's launch sales don't compare to GTA V, but they hold up surprisingly well against some other major PS3, Xbox 360, and PC releases.
Of course, Pokemon's always been popular. Japanese developers don't need to westernize or play to the CoD crowd to be successful. If a game is good or has a good reputation, people will buy it. FFXIII sold on reputation alone, but because it betrayed what made it popular, the sequels didn't do so well. I'm glad Pokemon keeps improving, yet still maintains what people like about it. That's how developers should treat their flagship IPs.
It beat TLoU and Bioshock Infinite in just 2 days!!... DAYUM, go Pokemon.
As I'm playing right now. Breeding starters BTW, want one send me a PM on here. :D
