It marks a great month for Pokémon Black and White. The games were released on 4 March and we declared them to be the best Pokemon adventures ever in our Pokémon Black and White review.

Pokémon White went straight in at number one and became the second fastest selling DS game in the UK behind Professor Layton and Pandora's Box.

A few weeks later, Nintendo announced that one million copies of the game have been sold in the UK and both games still reside in the UK top ten.

    2 million more people added to Pokemon and not one of them will make a sensible trade for an Oshawott! I'm not giving them a Reshiram :/
