From November 16th, 2018 until November 26th, 2018, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! have sold a combined 1.5 million copies in the United States. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon has sold 2.2 million copies since its launch on November 17th, 2017.

Nintendo Hits Big Milestones from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday

Nintendo Switch set two new records from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday: It became the best-selling Nintendo console in U.S. history for that five-day period, surpassing even Wii system sales. Nintendo Switch also had its best-selling week ever in the United States. In fact, according to Adobe Analytics, Nintendo Switch was among the most-purchased items online on Thanksgiving Day and the overall top-selling video game product online for the Black Friday-Cyber Monday time period.

Strong demand resulted in shoppers buying more than $250 million in Nintendo products from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday, according to Nintendo’s internal sales figures, demonstrating that Nintendo has something for everyone this holiday season. That sales total accounts for video game systems like Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, retro systems like Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition and Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition, as well as all Nintendo-produced games and accessories. Total U.S. hardware sales for Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday increased 45 percent over the same period in 2017.

And that doesn’t even take into account that one of the most anticipated video game events of the year is still to come: the Dec. 7 launch of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game. As previously announced, the game has become not only the most pre-sold Nintendo Switch game of all time, but also the most pre-sold Super Smash Bros. game ever in the series.

Unless otherwise noted, the following data from Nintendo covers Nov. 22 to Nov. 26, and is specific to the U.S. only:

  • Nintendo Switch hardware sales grew 115 percent compared to the same period in 2017.
  • Lifetime sales of Nintendo Switch, which is entering only its second holiday season, have reached more than 8.2 million units.
  • Sales of first-party games, including digital downloads, topped 1 million units Nov. 22-26, beating 2017’s totals by 78 percent.
  • Nintendo Switch games Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! have hit combined U.S. sales of more than 1.5 million units since their Nov. 16 launch.
  • Additionally, after 12 months of availability, lifetime combined sales of the Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon games crossed 2.2 million.

Get Pikachu Wearing Ash’s Hats

Pokémon Trainers can get five different Pikachu wearing hats based on those Ash has worn in Pokémon the Series.

Ash Ketchum and Pikachu have been traveling together for over 20 years in Pokémon the Series. To commemorate their many adventures, we're giving Trainers the opportunity to receive five different Pikachu in their Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon game.

These Pikachu are unique—each one wears a hat that Ash wore in one of the regions the famous duo has explored. In addition to sporting one of Ash's trademark hats, each Pikachu is also equipped with a set of moves inspired by the attacks Ash's partner would frequently use in that region.

To get these Pikachu in your game, you will need to enter their respective passwords between November 9 and November 30, 2018. Look below for instructions to bring these Pikachu into your game and for the basic stats and password for each of the five Pikachu.

To get Pikachu via a password:
  1. Open your Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon game.
  2. Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  3. Select Receive Gift.
  4. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, then Yes again to connect to the internet.
  5. Enter one of the passwords listed below.
  6. Watch as Pikachu arrives in your game.
  7. Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to receive your Pikachu.
  8. Repeat steps 2–8 to receive the other Pikachu.
  9. Be sure to save your game.
