The titles had already set the bar for most pre-ordered games in company history.

For Nintendo 3DS systems, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon combined for sales of 3.7M units in less than two weeks, marking the fastest-selling games within the Americas and representing an 85% gain over prior record holders Pokémon X and Pokémon Y over the comparable launch period in 2013.

Since releasing Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version in 1996, Nintendo (OTCPK:NTDOY) has sold greater than 280M units of Pokémon-associated software (as of May this year).
