Pokemon Breaks Japanese Sales Records

February 1, 2007

I know people are still into Pokemon, but I didn’t realize everyone was [b]THIS[/b] into Pokemon still. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl were released on Sept. 28, 2006 and after just 3 months have shipped a record-breaking 5 Million units to retailers in Japan. This bumps them to the top of the list as the fastest selling Pokemon games ever.

The release I got doesn’t state if this is per game or combined, but I guess it doesn’t really matter since 5 Million copies anything is a lot. These latest figures take the total number of Pokemon games sold around the world since Sept. 2006 up to 155 Million. That is a staggering number. I am still in disbelief.
