Take that Nintendo fanboys/Pokemon fanboys. And remember, this is without China too.

At least Pikachu can claim to be rated slightly better. Yet Angry Birds 2 beats both. Somehow.

This has nothing to with China. They're talking about US only in which Sonic is now at $145 million comapred to Pikachu's $144 million.

Pikachu is still $127 million ahead worldwide. Pikachu's non US box office ($288 million) is almost as much as Sonic's worldwide ($306).

I'm disappointed at the numbers. Sonic should have smashed Pikachu.

I'm fine with this. I kinda liked Sonic better despite historically vastly preferring Pokémon as a franchise over Sonic (at least before Black/White) and Sword/Shield has basically ensured Nintendo can never win me back again even if they make another Super Mario Odyssey tier game. Or even five in a row.

The thing is, Pikachu had to compete with Avengers: Endgame and other really big releases at the time of its release. Sonic had little to no competition for most of its run, and theaters have only begin to close recently so that didn't really hurt it either. Sonic had a much clearer path to win this.

This.

Plus, as others have noted, the article is only about domestic. Worldwide Sonic won’t touch Pikachu. So, uh, take that Sonic fanboys, I guess.

Shame. Pikachu was great and Sonic was mediocre.

According to fanfic writers sonic is either suppose to smash Amy Rose or Tails. Or sometimes Robotnik
