Pokémon Sun and Moon sold nearly 2m copies in three days, just in Japan

Pokémon Sun and Moon shifted an astonishing 1,905,107 units during the game’s opening weekend in Japan.

To put that into perspective – well, that’s huge. It’s the second biggest 3DS launch ever, behind only Pokémon X and Y (which sold 2.09m).

eShop digital sales are not counted in either figure – and the rising number of people who choose to buy this way may actually put Sun and Moon ahead.
