For the week ended October 11, Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver together sold 189,000, bumping down to second place last week's Japanese number one, Wii Fit Plus, which sold 153,000 units this week.

Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver for DS released in Japan on September 12, and to date have sold 2.47 million units. Wii Fit Plus launched on October 1 and has sold 492,000 units to date.

The only new game on the charts this week was Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for DS. The title, a first-person role-playing game, sold 97,000 units in its opening week.
