Pokemon Diamond/Pearl: Record Sales!
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl sold 1,586,360 units in the first week of sales (September 28th - October 1st), making it the fastest selling DS game ever in Japan. This shatters the record originally set by New Super Mario Bros, which sold 865,024 units in that game's first week. Pokemon Diamond/Pearl also broke the record for the fastest selling Pokemon game in Japan. The record was previously held by Pokemon Gold/Silver, which sold 1,425,768 units in their first week back in 1999.
