Nintendo also said domestic sales in Japan accounted for 4.05 million of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s 10 million sales.
This proves that Pokemon remains extremely popular both in Japan and around the world. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet didn’t launch without controversy, with many players commenting on the game’s poor performance. The glitches have become something of a meme online, ranging from Pokemon sliding off the edge of a lake to one that speedrunners will enjoy. If you connect two controllers to your Switch, your character will run twice as fast.
