    Very happy to read this. The mall tours and Gamestop giveaways helped a lot I bet.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that...The 6th Gen Pokemon games will inevitably be made for the 3DS and I don't see the sales of 3DS surprising the DS's.

    That's still about 4 years away so we'll see..

    Pretty much the same here.

    I hope the game reviews are as positive as the sales.

    Repeated success like Japan's launch day? Is that unusual?
    Oh?

    Really? Does anyone have the overall stats, including Europe at least? It's kind of cool thinking of it in perspective, knowing that each of a good number of us here bought at least one copy to make up such a huge number.

    Can I just say...

    This means that Pokemon White put Nintendo...in the black!
    ...No?
    Yeah, I write weirdly dark stuff sometimes. Birdsong, I Can't See The Light and The Courteous Soldier, if you're interested.

    If you think this was big, a few months ago, Black Ops sold 5.6 million on the first day.

    The sales are tremendous! It really puts me at ease that Pokemon is still a very successful franchise, despite what the naysayers want happen.

    Thanks for reading.
