We don’t really hear about Pokemon Go in the mainstream media any longer. After the hype reached a peak last summer, it felt like everyone forgot about the game and moved on to the next big thing.
But that’s not what’s actually happening. Sure, Pokemon Go doesn’t get that much press attention, but it has a massive player-base that sticks around month after month.
In fact, the game has an impressive 65 million monthly active players. That’s according to developer Niantic, who also teased fans with new upcoming features, such as “all new cooperative social gameplay experiences”.

65 million monthly active players puts Pokemon GO up there as one of the most popular games in the world, on any platform. It helps that it was the most downloaded app on the iOS store in 2016.
Yesterday, Pokémon GO won the “Best Mobile and Handheld Game” at the British Academy of Film, Television and Arts Game Awards (BAFTA).
