According to new data, Pokémon GO has surpassed 2.5 Billion dollars in player spending. This news comes just shy of Pokémon GO’s third anniversary, launching in July of 2017. These new figures brings player spending to nearly 4 million dollars per day since its launch. Players in the United States are the biggest spenders with 35 percent of the revenue, closely followed by Japan with 29 percent and Germany in a distant third, with only about 6 percent. Pokémon GO is by far the most successful mobile title in the Pokémon franchise, and was ranked the No. 7 game for worldwide revenue last month, with more than $67 million in player spending.

Brie likes to game, and by game she means mash on the buttons and holler at the TV. She is, however, very competitive and will trash talk you ruthlessly even if she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Probably best for her to stick to collaborative games on game night.
