Pokemon's still got it!

Pokemon Sword and Shield may have courted some anger when various details were revealed, but it doesn't seem like that backlash hurt sales. According to Nintendo's latest financial report, Pokemon Sword and Shield have sold 18.22 million units worldwide since launch. That makes the pair the third best-selling entry in the mainline franchise. Check out the comparison chart below to see the whole picture.

Could not agree more.

Does that include the GB virtual console releases too I wonder?

It doesn't. Those numbers for the first two gens have been that high way before the 3DS was released
