4 Million strong…. And growing! Pokemon fans around the world are absolutely in love with the newest games in this historic franchise. Nintendo has released a statement today sharing that Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have passed the 4 million sales mark. Put together, 4.5 million copies of the titles have been sold already for the big N. Nintendo also shared that the previous quarter was the “best-selling quarter for software in Nintendo 3DS history”.
Looks like everyone is still catching them all. Did you pick up the game?
Is Pokemon Sun and Moon Headed to Nintendo Switch? Well, according to Eurogamer (those wonderful people who were DEAD RIGHT on what the Switch was), the popular game is indeed headed to the Nintendo Switch. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Multiple sources tell Eurogamer the game is already well into development, will launch in 2017, and currently holds the codename of Pokémon Stars.
Earlier generations of Pokémon games have featured a third title launched later with expanded features – Pokémon Yellow followed Game Boy originals Red and Blue to start this trend, which continued through until Pokémon Platinum followed Diamond and Pearl on DS.
With Pokémon Stars, this idea will be revived – but for the first time we’ll see the mainline Pokémon series spanning separate Nintendo consoles within the same generation of games.
Indeed, Switch will be the first Nintendo “home” console to receive a main Pokémon adventure. It only took 20 years.
If this pans out, this would be incredible news for future Nintendo Switch owners. As always, more as it develops.

We all know that Pokemon Sun and Moon were going to be popular but apparently the two 3DS titles are going to sell like gangbusters when they release. Nintendo has announced, via Twitter, that Pokemon Sun and Moon are now the most pre-sold game in Nintendo history as well. The franchise continues its tremendous success and I hope that we see a Nintendo Switch version when they fully showcase the system in January.
