Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl sell better in Japan than predecessors

But that Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are flying so smoothly over the counter can be called an achievement, since Sword and Shield are in the top 3 of best-selling Pokémon games ever. De Wacht should also mention again that this statistic is for the first two weeks after the release and that does not mean that Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will actually sell more copies, but the start is there!

In the first two weeks, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl flew a whopping 1,750,668 copies, while Sword and Shield combined sold 1,740,084 copies in the first fourteen days. Incidentally, the latest Pokémon games still have a long way to go, because according to figures from Gamerant Red, Blue and Green still top the list with 31 million copies sold. Okay, a little bland as these were also the first games in the franchise, so these titles have had the most time to sell. Anyway, Pokémon as a whole has been on the rise again lately, so who knows what that could mean for the sales of these nostalgic remakes!
