    Not necessarily the nes mini, but the Famicom mini has indeed been hacked. There just aren't enough nes mini units to go around for a person to verify if the same hack works on that one though. But no reason to believe it wouldn't.

    You're mistaken if you think even 1% of 3DS users have access to CFW/piracy. people here on GBATemp are in the extreme minority. Just spend some time on a game like Animal Crossing. Everyone I've ever met has no idea how to hack their 3DS. Also, All my friends and family that have 3DSs don't know how to hack them either and don't even want to try.

    Great job, Nintendo

    Well deserved, not only for Pokémon but for everything else too.

    No, theres one coming for the switch. And why? Nintendo and GF will be pushing out Pokemon games for as long as they live. These games are super flexible. They could make it in space on the moon region and people will eat this up.

    Hell no. I want more Pokémon games. I don't care about any TV or movies, though. Though a Metroid would also be cool.

    What are you salty for? I've already had dozens of hours of fun out of Pokemon Sun and Moon, I felt I got my money's worth. At the same time and in the same timeframe, I've had a blast with Final Fantasy XV, Battlefield 1, replaying the Batman: Arkham series, modding up Skyrim, relaxing with Stardew Valley, blowing through Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice and maybe a game of Rocket League. What are you getting at? Let people have fun with their games instead of thinking you're "enlightened" or something and know the One True Path To Salvation™.

    Hoping it's the last is the most futile hope one could have seeing how... well, how this game had flabbergasting sales.

    This goes to show how fast gaming as a whole is growing (also how cheap 3DS is), but I worry Nintendo will take it to mean Sun/Moon are doing things right. Really they're some of the worst Pokemon games.

    I don't. Gyms got boring, and cheap. The challenges method switches things up and at least is more interesting than the gyms mentality was for me. I appreciate this change.

    I also appreciate how finally battle animations are fast enough to leave on, and that the game's input lag is at last on par with the GBA games.

    Frankly, I don't want gyms to be forever gone, but I'll admit Sun/Moon's approach was refreshing.

    Pokémon is making a lot of money so clearly it's the devil.

    Not so much a fix, but an alternate take. :P
    Europe pulled in 1.5 million as well, not too shabby. No clue what Japan did.

    Hopefully these runaway sales will have some lasting impact on the 3ds's twilight months/years and it trickles down to the homebrew scene, which is what I care about most.

    You know what this proves? When Nintendo actually advertised their shit, people knew when to buy it!

    Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, Kirby

    The four biggest IPs have been really successful over the years!

    Mario Maker, Link Between Worlds, Sun and Moon, and Planet Robobot. These games really make me smile! Just comes to show that Nintendo is doing fairly well with these games! Though a Nintendo console was not my first game console, a handheld one was! Since then, the Dreamcast (my very first console) disappeared, the PS1 broke, and my GameCube currently lives on. The GCN was the only console That I own over 2 games! Loved Pokémon, loved Mario, loved everything about Nintendo! Sorry, Sony. You have your amazing GTA games, but Nintendo became my most beloved video game companies!

    To be fair, it worked for Mario.

    Not at all by much. As somebody else said in this post hackers are the minority.
