Pokémon X/Y Has Now Sold 12 Million Units – Bring on the Money!

The latest game in the Pokémon franchise has reached a milestone of 12 million units!, That’s a whole lot of Poké-dollars! The 3DS game came out last October and is the best selling 3DS game of all time, topping hits like Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Awakening and The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. This game was also a huge milestone in the franchise as it was the first game in the series to be released worldwide on day one.


This milestone is relatively good comparing to the other entries in the Pokémon franchise but other games have done a lot better like Pokémon Red & Blue breaking 20 million units and Diamond & Pearl reaching 18 million units. After this announcement we have found out that the Pokémon franchise has sold over 245 million units with Pokémon X & Y making a little over 20% of that, This huge number makes Pokémon one of the best selling video game franchise of all time along with Super Mario, Call Of Duty, Tetris and Grand Theft Auto! Not just a little kids game now!
