These are all based on aproxamate figures and could cange due to series and time due to new games being released and more recent games could sell mor but as of the 16th of November 2010 these are the figures.


Pokémon and Halo two big heavy hitters in the both old (depending on defintion) and modern game industry. Well thets look at the facts they are both two huge franchies, could be seen as overated, two completely differnt generes and were released at the time two huge aspects in the video game industry either got big in the western world or even became a posibility on home consoles.

Now one more thing befor I start I'm not a huge fan of the Halo series but I'm a huge fan of Pokémon so that is why I'm not basing it on my opinion because Pokémon would win and make halo fans mad at me (witch they'll probably be after this article any way)

So to begin we have the origionals so to make this a little more fare it will be:

Pokémon red and blue: 23.64 million units

Origionaly I was just ading the two origionals with the two new games I just through halo 3 in at last minute to give them a fighting chance but aganst the whole Pokémon rpg series (excluding the pinball, tcg vg and colsole spinoffs) the series came to a 121.13 Million units in total.

But also remember these were all aproxomate unit and could change over time so as I sayed as of wirting this article these figures are correct and are subject to change.

The numbers were taken from
