shouldn't that be Pokemon growth fuels DS/Wii sales?

I'll call it growth if Diamand/Pearl outsells Red/Blue/Green.

That's a tall order, becoming the second best selling game...ever, but that's where Red/Blue/Green sit right now, and, obviously, for growth to occur, you need more to sell later than you did at first.

I doubt Pokemon can do that.
