An abridged version of The Pokemon Company’s financial results for the fiscal year ending February 28th, 2022 has been revealed. As per a filing by the Japanese government’s gazette Kanpō (via Gamebiz.jp), the company had ¥204 billion ($1.6 billion) in sales and ¥41 billion ($322 million) in net profit. As per Kantan Games CEO and analyst Dr. Serkan Toto, this marked a “record financial year.”
