I doubt this will sell over 15 million, but even if it does, it will be hard to reach Brain Age 2. So let's say this is the 7th best selling DS game of all time. It has also outsold every non-PC RPG game except for fellow Pokemons. In Japan, this is the 6th best selling retail game EVER. I think we can call this a success.

WTF? I'm only analysing the sales. This won't ever reach Diamond/Pearl sales.
Black/White 2 won't reach Black/White sales. Which is bad news since the DS install base is so much bigger with reach release. If the franchise was growing, sales would keep increasing (ala Call of Duty) but it's not :/

Wait a minute... this is still selling 25,000 a week! If this game gets an eventual price drop or final DS bundle, it can reach 15 or so million by the end of the year and, just maybe, eventually surpass Ruby and Sapphire! And if Gray version is released early enough as a 3DS exclusive, that means that generation 5 could reach 22 or 23 million sold!

Pokemon White is one of Nintendo's 5th generation Pokemon games, released on the NDS early 2011. The game has come a long way, featuring many elements from the previous generation, and along with that features a new graphic scheme, new features never before seen in the pokemon series and includes a whole new set of Pokemon to collect. Fans will surely love this game as it reboots the series pretty much with all new pokemon, a new region and a complete make over storyline that will be remembered for years. Fans who were disappointed with the 4th generation will surely love this game as it fixes many of the problems that the 4th generation had and strays away from the generic storyline that was used in previous installments. 9.8/10

Pokemon: where eight digit sales can be considered a disappointment. This did very well for a game on a dying system, much like Skyward Sword on the Wii or God of War 2 on the PS2 did. If Pokemon Gray is a 3DS exclusive, expect great things, on par with other 3rd versions.

Explosive opening, overall disappointing sales for a major Pokemon release. Isn't that amazing though? Couldn't live up to Pearl/Diamond's sales, but still managed nearly 13 million world wide up to this point and has a shot at 14 million world wide when it is all said and done. Huge franchise.

This will probably never beat D/P, but with a good Christmas, S/R could be crushed. And if Pokemon Gray is a 3DS title, expect big sales from that.

Such fantastic games, Pokemon still refuses to show it's age, at least to me anyway. I loved the new Pokemon, and it was so fresh and exciting during the first playthrough seeing nothing but new Pokemon :) The 5th Gen to me is the best since the 2nd and the games are just excellent fun :)

@spooky96: why not? BW sold 12.13m in 54 weeks, while DP sold 11.17 in 56 weeks. That's 1 million less with 2 weeks of advantage. I say BW has a pretty good chance at beating DP's sales.

It looks like this game slowed down considerably, considering the start it had. Still, that's to be expected. Every sequel on the same platform seems to take a hit in comparison to the first game (Mario, Zelda, Metroid and Pokemon). Still very solid numbers. =)

This pretty much has to be undertracked. It shipped ~1.4m in the June quarter, making VGC ~1.4m under. And there's little chance of overshipping since VGC was already under on it last time. It would have shipped next to nil if it was already stuffed in the channel last time. In other words, with a proper holiday, this'll crush RS and give DP a run for its money, :D!
