Pokémon continues to be one of the most popular franchises out there, making millions around the world. Whether it’s plushies, trading cards, or video games, Pokémon’s appeal shows no sign of waning, even after all these decades.
Nintendo’s latest Pokémon title, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, sold a staggering 10 million copies in three days, despite shipping with a myriad of technical issues. The next game to capitalize on the Pokémon craze for Nintendo Switch will be Detective Pikachu Returns. The game was announced during the Nintendo Direct June 2023 conference, along with a plethora of other exciting Switch titles.
