Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which debuted in January 2022, raised the bar for upcoming games. Arceus was the first Pokémon game to feature a fully 3D open world, which had never been done before.

There are few restrictions on player exploration in the Paldea region. Pokémon Scarlet, Violet, and other recent releases are still driving sales, so there has never been a greater desire to catch them all.

With 31 million sales since its 1996 release, Pokémon Red and Blue still holds the record for most sales. After three days, Scarlet and Violet would represent only a third of those sales.
