Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Sword is selling better than Shield

Shield is exactly true to its name, taking the beating.

Everyone wants the Great Wolf Sif edition


Anecdotally, there was an overwhelming amount of support for Pokemon Sword over Shield during the new generational reveal, and it seems like the sales data supports that.

Breaking down the Japanese sales numbers even further, Dengeki Online notes that Sword managed to push 499,753 units, towering over Shield's 347,629 units. Not only did it have the most enticing legendary (basically Great Wolf Sif from Dark Souls over Shield-Face), but Sirfetch'd, which is exclusive to Sword, was one of the most celebrated new creatures.

Taking a gander at the all-time Switch best-seller list, all Sword and Shield need to do collectively to be the most successful Pokemon game on Switch is sell more than 11.28 million copies: enough to dethrone Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. The pair should also be pushing Link's Awakening and Super Mario Maker 2 out of the top 10 very soon, which sport 3.13 million and 3.93 million copies sold respectively.

Pokemon, like Call of Duty, continues to defy sales expectations while getting plenty of complacency complaints.
