Pokémon Let’s Go Becomes the Best-Selling Nintendo Switch Game with 3 Million Units in Its First Week

Alessio Palumbo

The Pokémon Company announced today that Pokémon Let's Go became the best-selling Nintendo Switch game in its launch week, with three million units sold in the game's first week.

This is perhaps not that surprising since the Pokémon franchise has never been stronger. Regardless of that, it's still a very solid result for the game.

In our review, Dave pointed out that the changes introduced by developer Game Freak were mostly for the better.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee has had dozens of small changes from the original generation, or the other mainline Pokémon games, but honestly, none of those changes feel negative. Nothing I’ve played in Pokémon: Let’s Go has made me wish for something the older games gave me. Everything here is, well, great. Built for a purpose. Enjoyable. And it hasn’t made me long for a more traditional style of Pokémon game at all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty positive I’ll enjoy the next, mainline games even more than this, but right now, I can’t complain. Honestly, all I actually want is to jump back into Pokémon: Let’s Go, raise my Pokémon and complete my Pokédex. Everything I’ve ever wanted from Pokémon.
