Pokemon Series Surpasses 300M Lifetime Sales

The Pokemon series of games has now sold over 300 million units worldwide.

The Pokemon Company broke the news to Famitsu and explained that figure doesn’t even include downloaded copies or Pokemon Go purchases.


The long-running video game franchise was born back in 1996 with the release of Pokemon Red and Green on the Game Boy. It quickly gained popularity, thanks in part to the anime series, and has become one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises.

The latest game in the series, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, launched earlier this month for the Nintendo 3DS.
