Main series Pokémon games have sold over 200 million units

The  Pokémon series has passed a serious milestone, as the Pokémon comapany announced in a recent press release (translation via NeoGAF user JoeM86) that its main series of games, not including spin-offs, has sold over 200 million copies worldwide.

According to the post, this benchmark was reached on February 29, 2016 and includes the recent re-release of Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow and Green for Nintendo’s Virtual Console. As of the same date, and including spin-off titles, the Pokémon series has sold over 279 million units.
