    You also forgot the z factor, McDonald's. Its popularity has to have at least influenced 100 buys.

    It shows that the Pokemon fad is still alive. I don't need a Pokemon calender, but I would be surprised if there's a record like this in other countries as well.

    Thanks for reading.

    Now I'm curious if the 2011 Calendar will break the record. Still a weird achievement to have, but I'm not losing sleep over it.

    I guess it also helps that the calendar is only 300 yen, which is ridiculously cheap as far as calendars in Japan go.

    I wish we had Pokemon Calanders in America, but we will probably never will, thanks to the fact that they never advertise any Pokemon product other than the games, cards, and (ocasionally) the anime, and that's mainly why Pokemon rarely gets any new fans.....

    i've been using the Tolkien Calendar series for 6 years, seven next year, maybe I should switch to Pokemon, or get a pokemon desk calendar.

    anyway congrats for the record!
