Pokémon hype is stronger than it has been in years (largely thanks to Pokémon GO), and that’s good news for Pokémon Sun and Moon. The upcoming 3DS adventures are the most pre-sold games in Nintendo history, and Nintendo is making sure to keep store shelves stocked. According to Takashi Mochizuki of The Wall Street Journal (via The Pokémon Company), over 10 million copies of Sun and Moon have been sent out to stores just in the initial shipment. This is the biggest ever shipment of 3DS games, and it’s around 1.5 times larger than Pokémon X and Y‘s initial shipment.
Pokémon Sun & Moon together shipped more than 10 million as 1st batch, Pokémon Co. says. Biggest-ever initial shipment for 3DS platform.
