Pokémon Scarlet And Violet have the next biggest franchise launch of any game series. The first week’s sales were higher than Sword and Shield.
The latest boxed charts data is in, and, as expected, it’s a big win for the recently released Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, with both entries coming in at number one and two.
Most people chose Violet and its Legendary Pokémon, Miraidon, with the game making up 52% of overall Pokemon Go downloads. Meanwhile, Scarlet made 42%, and the Dual Package (which contained both games in one convenient box) came in sixth place, making up 6%.
Not only was Pokémon Scarlet and Violet the second best-selling game in Japan (behind Pokémon Sun and Moon), but it also sold more copies than any previous Pokémon title ever released. That said, it didn’t quite outsell Pokémon Sword and Shield, which is currently the top seller in the series’ history.
Still, that’s not bad considering how much cheaper Pokémon Scarlet and Violet cost compared to Pokémon Sword and Shield. And if you’re wondering why Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is so famous, let me tell you—it’s because they feature Ash Ketchum, who hasn’t appeared in any mainline games since Pokémon X and Y. He’s back!
Sonic Frontiers has dropped six spots in just one month, but considering three of those positions were occupied by Pokémon games, we’re not too worried. Sales for the Switch version are leading the way at 40%, followed closely by the PlayStation 5 at 32%.
Our Latest Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Game Tips
The challenge to break Pokémon Scarlet and Violet knows no bounds. Unfortunately, the newest mainline games in the Pokémon franchise are a blend of bugs and a lack of polish, like an exploit that allows you to move faster after plugging in two controllers. Now, a bug will enable you to scale walls too.
The exciting opportunity to reach unintended locations is here. It might take a little practice, but you can climb walls with your ride Pokémon by simply turning around and jumping backward.
It’s important to note that this trick doesn’t work for Pokémon Violet owners, who own a different type of ride Pokémon. However, people are exploiting the already broken Pokémon Scarlet, so hopefully, Sonic becomes a rock climber and runs as fast as he did before.
The massive amount of bugs in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, whether beneficial to the players or not, have caused an uproar in the community.
An additional bounty of performance issues and you have a pair of games fans have noted are the worst-received in the franchise. Nevertheless, there’s still plenty of fun in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Although there’s an obvious way to run just as quickly as your favorite blue hedgehogs, I’m not just about pumping up Miraido with lots of sandwiches and upgrade. In Scarlet & Violet, a buggy mess with glitches and performance problems galore now has one issue that can at least benefit players. It takes some minor setup, but you can utilize two controllers to run even quicker in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
This doesn’t seem to work if you use more than two controllers, so this is as fast as your ride Pokémon can go without your help. Some people think this might be used to beat the game in under an hour, but we don’t know for sure because Game Freak hasn’t patched this yet. However, this may allow you to complete the game using just one controller.
The game might be the second biggest title launch of all time, but there are still a lot of bugs present, and some are not very helpful to the player. Although the games have a solid foundation, the overall experience is marred by poor optimization and a lack of attention to detail. However, we’re sure it will all be fixed soon with an update to Pokémon Scarlet And Violet.
