Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    I read at VGChartz a list of the best selling video games of 2010.
    This is a list of the 10 best selling games of Nintendo-systems:

    1. Wii Sports Resort - 10 million
    2. New Super Mario Bros. Wii - 10 million
    3. Wii Fit Plus - 7,9 million
    4. Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver - 6,2 million
    5. Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 5,5 million
    6. Pokémon Black & White - 4,8 million
    7. Mario Kart Wii - 4,3 million
    8. Wii Party - 3,8 million
    9. Just Dance 2 - 3,4 million
    10. Mario Kart DS - 3,3 million

    Look at number 5 and 6.
    Pokémon Black and White is only available in Japan and has sold just 0,7 million copies less than Super Mario Galaxy 2, which is available worldwide.
    Does this mean Black and White are going to be the best selling games of 2011?

      I highly doubt it, considering that almost everyone is obssessed with the PS3 and XBox.
      The game that'll be on their minds would be CoD and Modern Warfare.

        Among the entire market, probably not, but in the Nintendo market, quite possibly. Hard to say, though. I mean, Skyward Sword is going to be coming out next year, too. We'll see.

        I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

        I think it could, but only in the Nintendo market, as PS3 and Xbox easily beat out nintendo in terms of popularity and sales. I would like it if Black and White were to be one of the top selling games, but I just don't see it happening with rivals like Sony and Microsoft. I'm sure that a PS3/Xbox game will get released next year, and everyone will buy it, once again beating Nintendo. 3

        If it's already sold 4.8M copies in Japan and has only been out for a couple of months and is coming to US & UK in March then it's possible, it may surprise you.

        Through Nintendo charts it could possibly get to number 2, but since Skyward sword is coming out it'll have big competition.

        And the Wii has beaten the Ps3 and Xbox before in terms of sale prices. :|

        I think it will be seeing as we get more fans for every generation.

          Maybe. Keep in mind that HGSS were about to be best-selling games in March (damn Kratos got 'em !), but not of the year. However, as I see that only in Japan they sold only with 2 million less than HGSS, I think they will rank pretty high...

          9 million copies (which is a lot), anyone ? 5 millions (almost) are already in Japan, so I suppose about 4 million copies in the rest of the world...
          Well, okay. I'm here just to chat with people. Don't really care about signatures and stuff.

            Plus, there's always Arkham City, KH: Re:Coded and, of course, Elder Scrolls 5 ... I'm not expecting B/W to become the top seller

            I see black and white being the top sellers on the nitendo market but not the top seller of 2011.We don't even know they might be planning another pokemon game to come out in 2011 which would top black and white most likely.

              I could see it being top selling DS games. I thinking Paper Mario 3DS may get more sales, since it is one of the most popular if not the most popular Nintendo series of all time.

                Seeing the list, pokemon rises one spot or stays the same, but since the diamond and pearl wasn't that popular, and HeartGold and SoulSilver came in fourth place, maybe B/W will be third at most...but with Paper Mario and other game consoles to compete with, no luck and I doubt it. May be for a month, but for the year? Maybe on the 10's list.

                I'm not expecting B/W to make it to the number one spot, but I'm hoping that it would at least make it to the top 5.

                    I want B/W to take the number one spot, but unfortunately that majority of gamers don't have very good taste. You can expect Modern Crapfest 3 to outsell Pokemon. :'(

                      If your comparing it to with XBox 360 and PS3 games, it might be up there in the Top 10 (in fact I think it will). As far as I think, Black and White will reach #1 or #2 on a Nintendo basis, but because of so many haters within the Generation shift they've lost many fans. But still, I expect it to be ranked up there.

                        I have no doubt that Pokemon will be the best selling game of the year! <333
                        And if not, it WILL be up there! ;D

                        I'm pretty sure Black and White can at least beat HG and SS. And I want it to be #1, but its hard to beat other game systems like Ps3 and Xbox.

                        Paul Newman and a ride home.

                        Pokémon is a looot bigger in Japan than it is here. There's no doubt it will still sell well, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for it being the biggest title on the market in 2011. There's a lot more for it to compete with in the North American market and it'll definitely be pushed aside for some of the Western blockbusters.

                        Even out of Nintendo systems only, there's big titles on the horizon like Zelda (is that actually coming out next year?) and the launch of the 3DS so I'd still be wary.

                            I could see Black and White maybe in the top 5, but not in the entire market. Although I was quite suprised and happy that Heartgold and Soulsilver were in the top rankings. So I guess it should be the same for Black and White. I bet pokemon gained a lot of fans back after they released HGSS.

                              Black and White will get pretty high up there, but I can't say for sure. Basically all the other 2011 games I kind of know don't really have a chance, and I haven't heard of a lot of the potential competing games that you've mentioned.
