Pokemon TCG Represents Bulk of Gaming Sales Growth

Sales of games grew at a tepid 3% in the United States in 2017 according to data from NPD. This is a much lower rate of growth compared to the 18% that was seen in 2016.

Much of this growth was attributed due to increased sales of Pokemon that occurred during the first 8 months of 2017 thanks to the continued hype surrounding Pokemon Go.

Based on the data from NPD, it appears that the release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in November for the DS did not help in lifting sales of the TCG towards the end of 2017.
