GTA V made approx. $800,000,000 day 1.

Before answering, consider...

1. GTA V still hasn't been released in Japan, the sales they make there will not count toward day 1 sales.
2. Pokemon X or Y only cost, like what, $40? GTA V was $60 yeah?
3. Assume that all sales from X and Y are combined against GTA. Kinda unfair but eh.
4. X and Y have a global release on the same day, giving them a slight edge.

No it won't. on the worldwide scale it will seeing as it's getting a worldwide release, but as far as domestically, in america: Hell. No. When there are youtube videos and gifs of little kids crying because their parents aren't buying them GTA V (but then surprise them with it later) There's no way pokemon will sell that much.

Japan is the only place that GTAV isn't being released day 1.

What about overall? Will X + Y generate more profit by Oct. 12th 2014 than GTAV will by Sept. 17th 2014?

More profit? Or more sales? It's hard to be as profitable with the game being 2/3 the cost

let us not forget that the special edition was 2x the cost and the collector version was almost 4x the cost.

As far as units sold I see pokemon winning. However profit won't come close to gta 5.

I could maybe see the number of units sold being greater, but GTA will definitely win money wise because obviously console games cost more, and also because it has multiple higher priced versions.

Better make this unit sales rather than actual sales.
