a console isnt called a 'copy' ;)

Might be picking this game up once I get my switch for smash bros. Seems like a decent trip down nostalgia lane, just not a big fan of the catching minigame from whhat ive seen.

Neonridr21d ago

I mean it's still got all the battling, item management, etc. Sure the catching is dumbed down a little, but I can live with it. Still a solid game, and definitely something to get the more casual players into the series.

Pokémon let's go is refreshing to say the least, I'll happily play Let's go as well the core Pokémon games.

Has anyone else looked at the map on the k side of the case, it's so detailed and tells you where all the Pokémon are !

Neonridr21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

I am guessing it will be very, very quiet around these charts for the next little while.

I knew that Pokemon was going to move a lot. For some reason I wasn't thinking this much hardware and software though. But I guess I should have known better.

660k+ not including digital sales.. for three days.. yowsers.

We're coming up on the holiday season and this title was timed just right to take advantage of that. It's going to move a lot of units over the next month or so.

And there's a smash Bros bundle gearing up, not to mention they already have some of their big hitters out from last year.
Nintendo is doing amazingly well atm regardless of what the competition are doing.
