    None. Pokémon on a bad day makes millions on brand name alone. Main series makes tens of millions every time regardless of quality.

    One of the lowest rated games of all time from the Pokémon catalog Hey you pikachu still sold 1,830,000 copies. So yeah none honestly, closest thing would be their small mobile apps that are barely games so it doesnt really count? Honestly they end up with good download amounts anyway so still a success.

    I noticed that some spin-offs do not get mentioned often after their release. Not saying that means they're a failure (it IS Pokémon after all), but you hear more about Pokémon Ranger and Mystery Dungeon than the Conquests and the Dashes of spin-offs.
