    Hello trainers, I saw a thread like this in another forum and decided to bring it here to listen (or read) to your opinion.
    Do you think that Pokémon Go could harm the sales of Sun & Moon?

    Personally, I think it won't, as the public who is in a"hype" about Pokémon Go is different from who is waiting for Sun & Moon. I mean, in general, who is looking for Sun & Moon are the fans who actually usually play the Pokémon games, while many of the people who are playing Pokémon Go were out of the Pokémon universe for a long time. In other words, I don't think that the people who where looking for Sun & Moon will give up of the game to only play Pokémon Go.

    That's a good question... Pokémon GO already helped a lot and many old games (Red, Blue and Yellow became best sellers on Amazon and Nintendo started an eShop sale with those titles -> http://www.pokemon-trainer.com/threads/pokemon-summer-nintendo-eshop-sale.1482/ )
    And the used games prices went up from 100% to 200% (source here)

    So, for sure if there's new fans that want to play the main series (or old fans that will return to the series), the new games are the best to do that :yesyes: (and, Sun/Moon Double Pack with Stealbook are really high in the Amzon chart :yesyes: https://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-video-games/zgbs/videogames )
