This is big achievement that even Nintendo America expressed their delight to the successful selling of Pokemon Sun and Moon.
Yes, you read that right. It is important to note that Pokemon X/Y were the previous record holders for Nintendo's fastest-selling games back when the games launched in 2013.
Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon - the latest games in the wildly popular Pokémon franchise - have now become the fastest-selling games that Nintendo has ever launched in the Americas. Pokemon X and Y eventually went on to sell 15.64m units.

"Pokemon Sun and Moon" has been out for two weeks since its release and players might want to consider building teams by breeding pokemons that have flawless IVs, Natures and move.
In Europe, "Pokemon Sun and Moon" sold 1.5 million units in its first week, with 368,000 units sold in the United Kingdom alone making it also the fastest-selling game title in the region. The success isn't limited exclusively to the Americas, either.
In less than two weeks, sales are already at 3.7 million units, which is 85 percent higher than Pokemon X and Y in the same period of time. Suffice it to say; Pokemon is not going anywhere anytime soon. The series as a whole has sold more than 280 million units worldwide since its debut in 1996.
