Post Pokemon Calendar Sets New Record



According to Music Japan+, 1,476,442 copies of a McDonald’s-released Pokemon calendar were sold starting Nov. 6, 2009.

That feat now holds a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

A certificate of this achievement was awarded at a McDonald’s store in Tokyo on Thursday, Nov. 18. Present were the two mascots of McDonald’s and Pokemon, Ronald McDonald and Pikachu respectively.

These 2011 wall calendars featured original illustrations of the Pokemon world and were sold for 300 yen, about $3.33 at the time of release. The calendar beat out its 2006 counterpart, which sold around a million copies.

Somtimes I just don't know how you go from a million... to like a Million and half.

It's never like a million then a million and three thousand

Never the less. Congrats for the new record!

From what I can tell, Pokemon is still extremely popular in Japan, whereas here in the US, its definitely gone off to the back.

Regardless, that's still a pretty impressive recording-breaking feat.

Hey, McDonald's is more popular here! *crickets*

Either way, congratulations to the calendar!
