Recently, it was reported that The Pokemon Company had enjoyed its best fiscal year ever in FY 2021-22, with its net profit for the period of $332 million being 123% up from the previous fiscal year. Now, the company itself has provided more details on the tracking period, revealing some more rather impressive figures.
As reported by Serebii, The Pokemon Company has updated its corporate page, which now mentions that it has shipped over 440 million units of Pokemon games worldwide to date as of March 31, 2022. The same page previously mentioned that as of March 31, 2021, that number stood at over 380 million units, which means 60 million units of Pokemon games were shipped in the 2021-22 financial year.
While sustained sales of older titles will no doubt have contributed to that, it’s worth noting that that tracking period saw the launch of three major Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch with New Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
As of recently updated sales figures, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have sold 14.65 million units worldwide, while Pokemon Legends: Arceus stands at 12.64 million. New Pokemon Snap, meanwhile, has sold 2.19 million units as of September 2021.
