Pokémon Sun And Moon has shifted 1,905,107 copies during its opening weekend in Japan.

That incredible figure is only eclipsed (no pun intended) by the launch of Pokémon X & Y, which sold 2.09 million copies in its first weekend on sale. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire "only" sold 1.5 million copies in the same time frame.

In the context of the entire series, Sun And Moon has enjoyed the third biggest launch in the franchise's history, with only the aforementioned X & Y and Black & White on Nintendo DS securing bigger weekend debuts.

Amazingly, eShop sales of Sun And Moon are not included that figure, which means actual sales are sure to be a lot higher.

Sun And Moon launched in North America on Friday and goes on sale from midnight tonight in Europe.
