I don't think the Anime would make a difference really. Plus, at least in terms of the US(Not sure about other countries, Canada is behind US though), the Anime isn't that far behind(Still a decent gap but it's nearly at the league, while the league has just finished in Japan). Still, it wont make a difference regardless, it's been announced as a simultaneously release and will be as such.

I'm sure regardless these games are going to end up being high up on the sales, they always are. I hope it'll break records, be it for Pokemon or something else.
