Nintendo and Game Freak’s latest pair of Pokemon games was recently unleashed in Japan, and combined, Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 managed to sell a brain-debilitating 1 561 738 copies in the country in less than a week!

During the reporting period, Pokemon White Version 2 sold 745 000 copies in Japan. During the same time, however, Pokemon Black Version 2 sold 817 000 copies, outselling its sibling by 72 000 units.

According to Siliconera, a similar result was seen with the release of the original Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version, which sold a combined 2.55 million units during their first week on sale in 2010. Black outsold White by 90 000 units.

We’ll let you arrive at your own conclusions.
