'Pokémon Scarlet' And 'Pokémon Violet' Global Sales Surpass 10 Million In Its First Three Days

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet take an evolutionary step in the Pokémon series, letting trainers can explore an open world where various towns with no borders blend seamlessly into the wilderness.

Pokémon can be seen everywhere in this wide-open world—in the skies, in the sea, and on the streets. 

As one of the main characters, Trainers will jump into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet to begin their adventure, where they will have a different outfit depending on which game they are playing.

Trainers will then choose either Sprigatito, the Grass Cat Pokémon, Fuecoco, the Fire Croc Pokémon, or Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon to be their first partner Pokémon before setting off on their journey.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet also offer expanded multiplayer modes, allowing up to four players to travel across the land together. Along with series staples, such as trading and battling Pokémon, players can also explore the various locations of the region together with other players. Whether trading, battling, joining Tera Raid Battles or just having a relaxing picnic, players are sure to make some memorable experiences with their friends and family in local wireless or online multiplayer.

Nintendo announced that global sales of the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games for the Nintendo Switch  have surpassed 10 million combined units (digital and retail) in the first three days since their worldwide launch on Nov. 18, 2022.

This is the highest global sales level for any software on any Nintendo platform within the first three days.

After their release, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be able to link with Pokémon HOME, a service that allows Trainers to keep their entire Pokémon collection in one place. By linking these games with Pokémon HOME, Trainers will be able to have Pokémon from other regions adventure alongside them in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch for $59.99.
