We all know that the Pokémon series is big - perhaps one of the biggest gaming brands there is, and certainly one of Nintendo's most important properties.

However, the news that the series has now passed 300 million units sold (across 76 different titles) puts just how gargantuan it is into perspective; that figure doesn't even include downloaded versions or free-to-down games, like Pokémon GO, either.

The figure will no doubt have been significantly boosted by the recent launch of Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on 3DS, the latest million-selling release in the series which started life in the '90s. 

Here's to the next 300 million!
