Pokémon Go reignited a fever for catching pocket monsters across the country, and that renewed love for Pokémon seems to be helping the sales for Nintendo's other upcoming monster tamer.

According to a recent tweet from Nintendo, Pokémon Sun & Moon have already broken the record for most pre-sold copies of a game in Nintendo history. Meanwhile, the recent Sun & Moon demo was the most downloaded demo ever on the 3DS. If you're one of the eager fans looking forward to Sun & Moon's release, here are a few other monster hunters to play while you wait.

Our Take
This is impressive. Pokémon was already a strong series, but its currently revival seems to be encouraging a rush of old fans back to the series. It will be interesting to see how the game sells after release. I know I'm looking forward to playing this one.
