There's only been like 4 or 5 CoDs this gen. There have been a lot more Pokemon. So's Pokemons more milked.
Your COD figure is not even close.

Pokemon only has 1 more release than COD. Not much of a difference at all (and 16 releases is nowhere close to 4 or 5). And if you want to argue why I included the HD-remake of COD1 on the list (call of duty classic), and we shouldn't count remakes, then Heart Gold and Soul Silver get taken off the list, and pokemon ends up having the same amount of releases as COD.
btw, I dont own any nintendo products, nor have I played any pokemon game since pokemon yellow. I do have 3 COD games though. --- PSN: SYRAPH , GT: TheRealSyraph Backlog on hold. Currently playing: Halo 4
