Pokémon is one of the most notable franchises on the planet, releasing acclaimed games that made thousands of people purchase Nintendo handheld consoles. This weekend, via Famitsu, The Pokémon Company confirmed that the series has shipped over 300 million units of video games since debuting in 1996 with Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue versions.

It’s worth noting that this doesn’t only include the mainline series but other games such as Pokémon Snap. And with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon now available we can expect this number to continue growing, especially when Nintendo decides to release the Nintendo Switch Pokémon game.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon is now available for Nintendo 3DS.
