Pokemon X and Pokemon Y have become the fastest-selling games on Nintendo 3DS with "nearly" 12 million copies sold worldwide since their October 2013 launch, the Pokemon Company has announced.

Nintendo said back in January that sales had reached 11.6 million, suggesting around 400,000 additional copies have been sold since then.

The 3DS titles remain some way behind the sales performance of DS games Diamond/Pearl with over 17 million, and Black/White with over 15 million.

To date more than 245 million Pokemon games have been sold worldwide.

I do really want to play is, but I just got a Vita in January and I'm happy with that at the moment. I do worry that if I bought a 3DS then it would just be a Pokemon machine which doesn't quite seem worth the £149 price gave for a 3ds xl.
