A Massive Nintendo Record-Breaker
Nintendo’s sales estimates for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, which were made available worldwide on November 18, 2022, take into account both bundled and digital editions.
After Pokémon Sword and Shield, the most recent installments in the legendary Pokémon franchise are the second from the main series. For reference, Sword and Shield set a record for the best-selling Switch game at the time by selling more than six million copies in its first week.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus are just a few of the Pokemon games that have been released for the Nintendo Switch since 2017.
These sales figures were attained in spite of some obvious technical problems with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Having said that, the gameplay including these issues seems to be unique.
This is for all the Pokefans out there
Although the game was released quite earlier than expected, there are minor graphical bugs, frame drops, and even several times where the game crashed on other players. Also, the game seems to encounter more glitches if it’s played in coop mode (Union Circle) with other players.
But nevertheless, the game offers a rich storyline, a massive new variety of new characters, the largest pokedex in one game (excluding the national dex postgame), and tremendously beautiful scenery for all players to enjoy!
It also has new features including picnics, sandwich making, and meal powers. What are you waiting for? Paldea awaits you, trainer!
