Pokémon Mobile Games Have Earned $2.5 Billion Total, Mostly From Pokémon GO

Mobile gamers on iOS and Android have spent approximately $2.5 billion on Pokémon games, according to new data shared this week by Sensor Tower.

There are six mobile titles that Sensor Tower is counting towards the total, but the bulk of the money - 98 percent - was earned by the most popular Pokémon title, Pokémon GO.


The other five titles that have brought in more modest amounts of revenue include Pokémon Shuffle Mobile, Pokémon Duel, Pokémon Quest, Pokémon: Magikarp Jump, and Pokémon TCG Online.

The United States has spend the most on Pokémon games, with total U.S. revenue coming in at 875 million, or 35 percent of the $2.5 billion number. Japan comes in second and accounts for 29 percent or $725 million of the total Pokémon game revenue.

Pokémon games have been installed by 640 million mobile users around the world since 2014, with Pokémon GO unsurprisingly making up the bulk of that with 550 million total worldwide downloads.

Thank you for such valuable information, we wouldn’t know what would we do if you didn’t share that here with us.

Haven't played in a long time, but Niantic did well in making a free game fun and not bogged down by IAPs. Glad to see their success

That's actually less than I expected. I think the Clash of Clans type games make more.

I’d love to know who the single highest spending player is and have a follow up to their life in say ten years.

what is MR for, what are the forums for, many people express their opinions , way of thinking, point of view
whatever you want to call it
some agrees, other disagrees,
some are honest and call it like they see it
others simply use sarcasm, making it seem like they are saying something
when they really mean something else

right

Every serious player of PoGo that I've seen (as with Ingress before it) carries/uses an external battery.
