We knew about the popularity of Pokémon. It didn’t take a video game expert to know that Pokémon X/Y would sell very well on the Nintendo 3DS. Today, we can see how popular this Pokémon franchise has become.

Nintendo has announced that Pokémon X/Y has sold nearly 12 million copies world-wide, making it the fastest selling 3DS game. This 12 million takes the total, Pokémon games sold, to over 245 million.   That’s a lot of Pokémon masters.
