Many gamers know that any main series Pokémon game is a guaranteed seller but the recent Pokémon X and Y, which took the plunge and incorporated fully 3D graphics, has broken some serious records.

Pokémon X and Y are the fastest selling games to reach 1 million sales on the 3DS (the titles hit this goal in only one day), beating out other popular titles such as Mario Kart 7 and New Super Mario Bros. 2 by a wide margin. The sales of all the 3DS models increased by 135% since the games’ release and there have been more than 2 million tweets about Pokémon in the past 30 days. Check out the fact sheet below for proof:
