Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee launch month sales in the US are the second highest in franchise history
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee had a strong debut on the latest NPD charts. For the month of November in the United States, they placed fifth and sixth respectively. Had the two been combined, they probably would have had higher seeding – not to mention digital sales aren’t included.
That’s not the only news for Pokemon. According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, launch month sales of the new Switch games “are the second highest in franchise history, trailing only Pokemon Stadium, which launched on the Nintendo 64 in the March 2000 tracking period.”
Pokemon: Let’s Go should continue to chart in December.
