StrengthGamer: Even if you take the number 2 and 3 spots and add them together, Pokemon Black & White still reigns king. That's a fairly decent indicator of how popular that franchise still is.
What's even crazier is that those numbers are that strong even in week 5! It's total numbers are over 4 million! Those Japanese love them some Pokemon...
The world loves Pokemon. It's one of the best selling franchises of all time.
Is the Japanese market just...limitless or what? It's like...how do they keep selling DSs? Doesn't every single person in that country have one yet?
Pokemon is a great franchise. They've gotten better with each game and continue to do so. Of course they're not perfect games but then again what is? Looking forward to black and white stateside. Still gonna trade over my charmander like I always do though :) Charizard may not have the best stats and his rock weakness can be a serious bitch at times but he still pwns in my heart!
the sky is blue, grass is green, and bears shit in the woods... Seriously we have people still surprised by how ridiculous Pokemon sells?
we can't forget about the holiday season. Pokemon came out in September or so, while Kirby just came out at the end of October same for Lord of Arcana....and thats also on the psp too. although then again, i guess i'm talking about the US...
know something else crazy bout pkmn it hasn't even hit the Americas or Europe so +6 mill, also no bundles yet either. Pokemon jeeze if they allowed advertising in the game nintendo would be sued for brainwashing billions into buying anything.
