They are remakes of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow, and also have a pinch of the mobile game Pokemon GO.
To compare: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold 1.3 million copies in their first 28 days. Super Mario Odyssey had 2 million sales in their first three days, but they did not catch with the week number of sales that the new Pokemon titles have. When we compare the Let’s Go! titles to the other existing Pokemon titles, Pokemon X & Y sold a whopping 4 million copies in their first two days. Pokemon Sun and Moon are the fastest selling Nintendo games in the company’s history.
