Pokemon Crystal isn't there? Horrors!
(bet that's why they excluded digital)

I assume you're joking, but Nintendo doesn't report out digital sales and thus Famitsu has no data on them. As such it's the top 30 best selling retail 3DS games. RMC didn't mention it was retail only.

To anyone that weirdly enough does not have the time for go through 30 titles: Pokemon, Monster Hunter, Yokai Watch and Dragon Quest. You're welcome.

(And people still claim only 1st party sells on Nintendo systems...)

Third party games that are console exclusive are prone to selling more. Who would not get that is beyond me.
