[color=#ff6ec7]Is the series really running out of ideas? Is Black & White going to be unsuccessful because there's not 10 Eeveelutions and 20 pre evolutions of older Pokemon? Lets take a look at their sales:

More people, more Pokemon, more fans.

But it is good to see that sales are great, regardless.

Not that I know of...

I will say though that I wasn't expecting it to be this good in sales & reviews even...

No doubt about it, this game is one of the biggest success that Nintendo has.

Let's list reasons why this game is so popular:

1. 3D graphics
2. Many new Pokemon
3. Outstanding Pokemon games in the past

Can you list any more?

Don't bet on that.

Platinum and HGSS sold over a million in one week ONLY in Japan. And their starting numbers easily trumped those of the English releases. Platinum sold 800k in the States after nine days, and HGSS sold under two million after a month.

Platinum
Two days (Japan): 1,000,000 copies.
Three months (Japan): 2,200,000 copies.
Nine days (USA): 805,000 copies.

HGSS
Two days (Japan): 1,480,980 units.
Two weeks (Japan): Over two million units.
Three months (Japan): 3,228,000 units.
One month (USA): 1,730,000 units.

BW will do well in the United States, but it's not even likely that it will sell millions of copies in one week.

i know why. the target range in japan is 6-12. the people who play it most are 6-9. two years doesnt make much of a diffrence right? enough to lessen the sales of millions.

I've come up with another reason why sales for Pokemon Black and Pokemon white have been so good: Some Pokemon were released before the game came out, making you think of the possibilities for other Pokemon in the two games.

and why wouldn't it be successful? I mean who doesn't want an electric type with levitate and not have to be in the underground and have to talk to 40 some people? I mean really. This game has come up with so many new type combinations! Have they run out yet? How many can their be left?

That's why I really want it... I saw the building bulging around the screen as you moved and I wanted to buy it.
I'm actually excited for other reasons, too, like to collect the new ghost pokemon. =)
