Pokemon ORAS sells 1.5 million copies in 3 days in Japan

Pokemon is still huge. The first week sales of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are mind blowing in Japan. The game sold 1.5 million copies in its week in stores. That’s just three days of sales!

It appears the game boosted 3DS hardware sales up to 83k last week in Japan. This appears to be the biggest sales debut for any Pokemon remake, outpacing HeartGold, SoulSilver, LeafGreen and FireRed by a wide margin.
