Every new Pokemon game is big challenge for developers. They have to prepare new engine, locations and also include remade and new generation Pokemons. Therefore, when the game with 7th generation of Nintento monsters was released, the whole world has gone mad and players bought everything in record time. It is not because of small amount of copies available on the market.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are currently the most popular games for portable consoles. The premiere of both games took place on 18th November, they even did not need the whole month in order to achieve better sale results than FIFA 17 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. These are really great quantity. I think that Pokemon GO game has its share of this success. This great mobile game from Niantic Labs showed us how Pokemon brand is popular. Citizens of North and South America together bought more than 3.7 million copies of new Pokemon game. Europe also has something to be proud, because their result is 1.5 million units, where in the UK they have subscribed more than 368 000 and it is only the first week after the premiere. These are big numbers, because the developers predict that by the end of the year they manage to sell over 10 million copies.
Why have Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon achieved so great results?
A lot of people (including me) think that this is because of great success of Pokemon GO. Thanks to this the most poplar mobile game, everyone, whether adult or youth, and he could return to his/her childhood and once again catch them all. However, we have also a lot of interesting new Pokemons to catch in new games. I think that people are curious what was prepared for them. They want to explore new maps and meet new Nintendo monsters. I do not know about you, but I will sit comfortably on the couch with my beloved New 3DS XL console and start exploring Alola region.
