Pokémon Go stats: here is how popular it is exactly

Pokémon Go is spreading across the globe at a break-neck speed, and just in case you were wondering how popular it is, here are the stats: the game topped the U.S. App Store 'Top Grossing' within the first 24 hours of its launch and it's actually installed more than Tinder and people spend almost as much time on it as on Twitter.

The stats librarians from SimilarWeb are now breaking down the popularity of the Pokémon Go game using their own statistical data.

Firstly, you can see how the popularity of Pokémon Go has exploded since the first day of its launch and how it has quickly surpassed the number of installs that Tinder get. Yes, people these days seem to be more fond of looking for Pikachu rather than a date.

Next, you'd see that not only are people installing Pokémon Go, they are actually spending a lot of time looking for the critters: daily active users are now quickly approaching the users that are on Twitter.

And since the game is not available in all markets and the roll-out has now been halted so that Niantic can handle the crazy traffic, many are resorting to third-party app repositories like APK Mirror. In fact, the popular webpage that allows you to download APK files that you can later sideload onto your Android phone has been getting crazy traffic.

Take a look at the Pokémon Go stats right below. Impressive, isn't it?

If you get robbed, you are a stupid person. You probably deserve it.

Exactly. Actually you're stupid for even playing it to begin with. There was another game it copied off, which I use to have on my device called Ingress. They basically ripped the concept of Ingress and put characters in it. I can't see how people can get so hooked on such non-sense.

You're aware that Niantic developed both titles, right? So, it's like when AngryBirds started taking on licenses to create the StarWars edition, except that Ingress + Pokemon makes a lot more sense

LOL, dude, not only are they made by the same developer, they also used Ingress to help develop this game as well. SMH.

Bro, Nintendo games all have great graphics. Nintendo makes the best games in the industry, they are always the best rated across all metrics. Look at this year’s E3, Nintendo showed one game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That game beat all these other games for game of the show by a monumental landslide. People were stampeding to the game, running past all those PS4, Xbox One, & PC games... Every console generation Nintendo games are the highest best rated. Look it up. No other video game company comes close to making games of the caliber that Nintendo consistently pumps out. Wait for the Nintendo NX.
