Pokemon X and Y is one of the best selling games in the last year, and of both the games, one has edged out the other in popularity.

While Nintendo had not officially announced which version of the game had sold more, Kotaku looked into the UK sales charts and found that X was at the number 27 spot, and Y was in the 29 spot. In the Nintendo eShop X was downloaded around 24,116 times compared to Y's 23,549 times.

Upon seeing the report Nintendo decided to reveal the numbers for the U.S. sales, which was X – 1.63 million and Y – at 1.54 million for one month.

Perhaps the reason for X selling more than Y is the Mega Evolution differences.Some Pokemon have different evolutions depending on whether the player has X or Y. A full list of the differences can be seen here.
