Hot on the heels of last week’s reveal that Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version have now reached over 1.5 million units sold worldwide, another milestone has been reached with Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire having sold a combined total of more than 3 million units across Europe since their launch in November 2014*.
To celebrate this news, fans who attend the European Nationals events in person can grab a Shiny Machamp for their copies of the game**. This special Machamp is similar to the one used by last year’s Senior Division Video Game World Champion and is a great addition to any Trainer’s Pokédex.
