It seems that Pokemon X and Y wasn't as unpopular as it was thought. Today, Nintendo announced that Pokemon X and Y had sold more than four million units, if you combined both games sales, you'd be looking at the fastest selling 3DS game to date.
"Since this was the first global launch in franchise history, there isn't an exact historical precedent for comparison." "However, when combining and comparing regional data for previous launches, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y would be the fastest-selling Nintendo 3DS games of all time and are tracking ahead of the last Pokémon RPG titles, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, by more than 70 percent." - Quoted by Nintendo.
The pokemon games and all their predecessors have sold well over 240 million copies - said by Nintendo. Now comes the choice, Pokemon X, or Pokemon Y?
