  • Pokemon Go breaks all Previous Records and hits the Popularity Stratosphere

Pokemon Go is the game of the moment. It has broken all previous records and has hit the popularity stratosphere.

It’s been barely a week since Pokemon Go began its popularity surge. Already it has broken through the barrier as far as its notoriety for being addictive is concerned.

The latest news has it that this app-based smartphone game is the biggest phenomenon in the history of the US. The total number of active users of the game is on the increase with each passing minute and second. 

It has achieved twice the popularity of Tinder. Currently, there are 21 million active users who employ the game for their leisure time needs in the Land of Opportunity.

It has taken Twitter by surprise and is on a breakneck pace to match its popularity levels with Snapchat and Google Maps, according to Forbes. It seems this game is simply unbeatable.

What future steps Niantic Labs will take to further advance the progress of this game is a debatable matter. If the grapevine is anything to go by then more specialized localities will be chosen as future avenues of hidden Pokemon. 

The game began with a bang from Australia, New Zealand and the United States. It won’t be long before it spreads to the rest of the developed world.

For those who are eagerly waiting to play this game in a country that does not have the facility available through proper channel, they can choose alternative methods of gaining access to Pokemon Go.

In the US alone, it reached the heights of fame and fortune within a brief span of 24 hours. It has beaten the past record of Candy Crush Saga which rocked the world some three odd years ago. The Pokemon enterprise is controlled by Nintendo.  

Yet the experts are warning that Nintendo or Niantic Labs need not fill their wine goblets just yet since the festivities can wait till a later time. Many other popular games have come and gone without a trace. It is too early to say with any certainty that Pokemon Go will be the best in a world of cut-throat competition.

We ought to let history be the final judge. Besides, Nintendo’s last game termed Miitomo did not fare too well and fizzled out in the end. That ought to be an object lesson to these originators of funky games that shine bright and then burn out in no time.
