Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee sales were initially down 5% compared to the opening week sales of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Three weeks later, and the story has changed. We’re now hearing that the Let’s Go titles are tracking 8% higher.

And here are the software charts:

Nintendo has announced results from sales generated between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, and has set a couple of records in the process.

First up, the company has highlighted a couple of sales records for Switch. It’s now the best-selling console in the U.S. for that five-day period having topped the Wii. It also had the best-selling week ever in the United States.

We previously heard that Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee were some of the top-selling products on Black Friday. Nintendo’s actual console also did very well during the holiday week.

Adobe Digital Insights indicates that Switch was the top-selling product on Thanksgiving. It was the fourth best-seller on Small Business Saturday, and was again in the top five – specifically #3 – for Cyber Monday.

Nintendo has yet to share any official data about its performance during Black Friday week. However, it’s clear that Switch and a number of its games did very well.
