It's going to be interesting to see how Pokemon Switch does.

Makes me wonder if the game would've been better off as a single game instead of two (i.e. Gold / Silver -> Crystal)

Wow...I agree. Once Pokemon comes to Switch sales are going to explode. I'm curious what Monster Hunter World will do to PS4 sales as well.
