It is hard to deny the Pokemon series is really popular, each selling a few million with each entry released, even better though is just how well some of these games have sold in the first few days on the market. In the past Pokemon Black and White released in 2011 on the DS held the record for best selling launch of a Pokemon game in the UK, however that particular entry has now been dethroned and replaced with the latest entry in the franchise Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which is funny considering these were remakes of the less popular 2003 release Ruby and Sapphire.

According to Chart-Track, sales for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have seen a 17 percent rise over last years Pokemon reform X and Y, however as of now specific sales figures have yet to be disclosed.
