I think that the anime is more focused to Japan than everywhere else and specially his promotions. And for a reason:To take a basic idea (I don'0t know (I hope I knew)) where Pokemon is doing financially, I think that works like that:
-In Japan, they are gaining money from the franchise in general. Not like other years, but the franchise is successful and I doubt that they are truly losing money.
-In America, I have more doubts but I think that the franchise is winning money.
-In Europe, it's clearly losing money. And in my country is literally obvious that they're not winning anything (What merchandise exist?)
-I think that the franchise is losing money right now in these months because the costs of XY production, In theory, it's transitory.
There's a reason of why the anime is not going worldwide like the games. If they spped up all the main dubs and pay the rights to all the chaneels who had Pokemon in every important country, the anime is losing money because they are spending money in soemthing that they had to spend money.
The anime is a medium to sell toys to children. In Japan, there's a lot of toys. In America, there is but a lot less than in Japan. Which means that they are gaining more in japan than outside Japan.
In general, the anime is focused on Japan because the profit is made in Japan.
If ypou copmapred sales from fad and after fad: you'll see that Japan has a solid position in popularity while the rest has been dropping in sales.
Why the worldwide release is so hyped by Nintendo? Because sales has been bad outside of Japan. In Japan, BW2 got more sales than Platinum, Emerald and Crystal. In America and Europe, it was the bottom of the GF games with a noticeable difference. In america it's actually worse because America isn'0t in ecomonic crisis when BW2 was released like Europe has.
If they didn't hype the games, the sales of XY will be good only in Japan
