Despite the negative reception and the Pokxit campaign Pokemon Shield and Sword sold wonders. Selling 6 million copies in its first week.

This makes Pokemon Shield and Sword the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game. This shouldn’t be a surprise as Pokemon has been one of the primary reasons to purchase a Nintendo console. The games have been very popular since the Gameboy days. And even with the cut Pokedex you can be sure that there are a lot of fans who just want to explore the Galar Region.

With the holiday season almost here you can guarantee that number will grow. After all, Pokemon is one of the safer gift ideas. It’s a franchise that attracts both kids and adults for both causal and highly competitive battles.

Pokemon Shield and Sword is now available for Nintendo Switch.
