The 300 million sales of Pokemon sales include the main RPG series, as well as others like Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Pokken Tournament, and Pokemon Snap. Remember that there are a bunch of spin-offs and other Pokemon games, with a total of 76 different Pokemon games in the wild.

Comparing Pokemon against some of the other best-selling games of all time we have Super Mario which boasts a massive 500 million copies sold. GTA comes in close with 250 million and so does Call of Duty with 250 million. The Sims has 200 million, while Tetris is still going strong with 170 million copies sold.

Gotta sell 'em all, Pokemon!
