Wow, that's actually a rather steep decline. YW2 sold 1.3 million in Japan first week, and YW3 sold 628k (neither one including revisions). That's almost a 500k decline for first week sales. Maybe this is just the jum to the Switch, but it looks like they burnt through the series too fast.

It was a big hit for a period of time mostly with a younger audience than Pokemon. So I would think that the drop off in sales is partially due to it having been a bit of a fad and also to do with the fact that the 3ds would have been owned by a mucher higher number of minors than what you would currently see with the Switch. This will change in time as the switch gets a cheaper model and becomes more widely spread in Japan.

Any reasons why it's selling so much worse than YW3 (628k)?

No surprised at all. Weren't they cranking multiple of these games a year for a while? Series fatigue is a real and deadly thing. I don't get why developers don't know that.
