Individually, Pokémon Sun and Moon failed to top the charts during their launch last week in the U.K., coming in at the number three and four spots, respectively, according to market research company Chart-Track. However, combined sales of the two games make them the most successful launch ever of any Nintendo game in the U.K.

The games managed to outdo the launches of everything that came out on the Wii and DS, despite having a significantly smaller install base. In just their first day, Sun and Moon sold more than the popular Wii Fit did in its first week.

Pokémon Sun and Moon launched on November 23 in the Europe, one week after the rest of the world.
