Pokemon Sun & Moon Will Finally Be A Console Game?

Pokemon Sun & Moon Will Finally Be A Console Game?

"Pokemon Sun & Moon" may be one of the most successful games in the franchise yet, selling nearly two million copies in Japan over last weekend, according to Eurogamer. Nintendo has announced that the games sold a combined 1.9 million copies in its home territory during their first weekend of availability.

Note that these figures do not include digital sales, which you expect over time have formed a larger part of the overall pie. That's a little short of the 2.096m sold by 2013's Pokemon X and Y.

The process isn't all that complicated, but the cutscene leading up to the moment where you pick a starter Pokemon in Sun or Moon lasts over two minutes.

Players have begun to report a Pokemon Sun and Moon glitch that is reportedly causing their characters to disappear after they save in certain locations and then reload the game, effectively forcing them to restart their progress from scratch.

Even if Sun and Moon don't manage to take the top spot, those are still impressive sales numbers.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are off to a pretty decent start in Japan. Nintendo anticipated a big launch, shipping 10 million copies of the games to retailers worldwide.

So far, Sun and Moon have been netting positive reviews, with both titles now holding down an aggregate score of 86 on Metacritic. Only "Pokemon X & Y" did better than this for the Nintendo 3DS. First Pokemon Go broke all the records a mobile game can break and now we have Pokemon Sun And Moon sales that are off the charts. Total 3DS family hardware sales for the Sun & Moon launch week were 113,987. We'll just have to wait and see how everything shakes out.
