From the start of its gaming franchise in 1996 to now, Pokémon has become Nintendo’s second biggest-selling series, moving out around half a billion units. It comes behind Mario, which has sold around 150 million more units than it, albeit with a head start of around a decade and a half.

Pokémon games started on the Game Boy in the first generation and have continued through the many iterations of the Game Boy and the iterations of the Nintendo DS to now, where games are released on the Switch, which is a top-five selling console for Nintendo and is quickly rising on that list.

There has been a total of twelve games released on the Nintendo Switch at the time of writing and if you’re wondering how the seventh and eighth-generation games are stacking up against each other, below we have compiled a list of them in order from worst to best.
