Pokémon Scarlet/Purple will mark the beginning of a new era for Pokémon, bringing for the first time what players have been waiting for for a long time:and open world.

But despite the (terra) crystallization of criticism around the graphics, the ninth generation seems ready to break all records.

To settle, the chain of stores recorded 434 pre-orders for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, 497 for Splatoon 3, or even 797 for Monster Hunter Rise.

Where things take a new dimension is when Pierre485 explains that the pre-order sale of Pokémon Scarlet / Purple has surpassed other Pokemon games on Switch for at least the first 3 days in marketing.
