The sales gap between versions is a lot bigger than usual. Goes to show just how popular Pikachu is!

How does this stack up compared to other Pokemon first 2 day sales figures? And wonder if the sales kept up or dropped off what with Black Friday and Smash following it?

It had a stronger opening than Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon; About the same as as OR/AS, nowhere near is big as X/Y or Sun/Moon.
