PokÃ©mon Sword is the UKâ€™s new no.1, forcing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to settle for #2. PokÃ©mon Shield wasnâ€™t far behind either, sitting between the two at #3.
Nintendoâ€™s decision to release a double-pack has also paid off, with the Dual Edition arriving at #7.
Combined sales make Sword/Shield the second biggest launch for a PokÃ©mon game in the UK, trailing behind PokÃ©mon Sun/Moon, which launched when PokÃ©mon Goâ€™s popularity was arguably at its peak.
PokÃ©mon Sword alone has achieved great things, in fact. GI.biz reports itâ€™s the biggest exclusive release of the year and the third fastest-selling title of 2019 behind the multi-format FIFA 20 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Even though sales were 33% lower than Star Wars Battlefront II (thanks again GI), Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is off to a good start too, becoming the fourth biggest physical launch of 2019 (so far.)
The allegedly poor Terminator: Resistance is the weekâ€™s only other new entry, making #38.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare â€“ last weekâ€™s chart-topper â€“ fell to #4. Itâ€™ll no doubt return in the coming weeks, being a Christmas no.1 contender.
FIFA 20 also dropped a few places to make way for the new arrivals, now at #5.
Continuing the theme, Luigiâ€™s Mansion 3 fell two places to #6, while Death Standing descended to #8 during its second week on sale.
The evergreen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sticks around at #9, while fellow Switch release Mario & Sonic At The Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 took #10. Sales of the latter were up over launch week, incidentally.
As for other recent releases, Need for Speed: Heat has left the top ten already, drifting to #11. Just Dance 2020 dropped ten places, meanwhile, going from #15 to #25.
Jumanji: The Video Game manages to monkey around in the top 40 for another week too, now at #35.
