Within 24 hours, the widely popular game reached number 1 on App Store, beating out indie hit Slither.io and Supercell’s heavily promoted blockbuster Clash Royale to become the biggest game of 2016, according to the post.
After three days of its release, Pokemon Go had attracted more users than Twitter, and rose to the top of the App Store’s revenue charts.
At the release, Nintendo saw a sudden and steep rise in its stock.
SurveyMonkey said it is too early to declare the game a win for Nintendo. But the game is expected to pass Snapchat on Android in a few days, and it could surpass Google Maps itself as the largest user of Alphabet’s mapping data.
