The Pokémon franchise has hit some impressive benchmarks recently, with its games hitting 480 million units worldwide. The Pokémon Company revealed that milestone on its corporate website, which cuts off at March 31, 2023 and includes "all Pokemon-related software" such as mainline entries and various spinoffs.

The most recent entry in the series is Pokemon Scarlet & Violet from November 2022 for the Nintendo Switch. Despite its numerous issues (which Nintendo apologized for), the games sold over 10 million units in a handful of days.

As of March 2023, Scarlet & Violet have sold 22.10 million units across physical and digital editions. Later this year, Nintendo will continue the momentum of Scarlet & Violet with a two-part expansion: The Teal Mask will release sometime in the fall (or Q3 2023), while The Indigo Disk will come in the nebulous winter period, or Q4.Of all the games, it appears the original three games—Pokémon Red, Blue, & Green—are the best-selling of the whole enterprise, as they've reportedly sold 31.38 million copies combined (as of December 2022).

For the Switch specifically, 2019's Pokémon Sword & Shield is the console's top-selling entry at 25.82 million.The Pokémon Company also used the opportunity to shine a light on the performance of the larger Pokémon brand.
