'Pokémon Sword & Shield' has already outsold 'Let’s Go! Pikachu & Eevee' in Japan

Let's Go! sales data, Let's Go!

Pokémon Sword & Shield are selling astronomical numbers, and more recent sales data proves how insane the games are truly doing in Japan. Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee have been out for over a year now, and Sword and Shield has already outsold the spin-off titles in just 10 days!

The Let's Go! games have sold a lifetime number of 1,661,155 copies in Japan (as of last week). Sword and Shield have already sold a total of 1,740,084 units!

This isn't that surprising. Let's Go had sold ~1.6M. Most recent Pokemon games sold above that in their first week. It only took Sword / Shield "10 days" because it sold 650K digital (e.g 2M in first 3 days actually with digital according to Nintendo's numbers).
