Pokemon Company profits soar by 2400% |

Major games-maker The Pokemon Company just recorded a huge boost in year-over-year profits, Japanese games analyst Dr. Serkan Toto reports. The company raked in $143.4 million (15.921 billion yen) in profits in the fiscal year ended February 28, up 2460% from last year's $5.6 million.

Dr. Toto notes that big releases such as Pokemon GO and Pokemon Sun and Moon were major contributors to the company's earnings. Nintendo affirms that 14.69 million copies of Pokemon Sun and Moon were sold within a 44 day period alone. As Nintendo owns a 32% stake in The Pokemon Company, the performance of these major titles directly affected Nintendo's recent 521% surge in year-over-year profits.

The Pokemon Company is believed to be making a new version of its popular collectible card game for mobile phones.
