Pokemon Go is now a global game, as the Pokemon Go App is also released in Asia.

For some weird reason, Pokemon Go is not officially released in Canada yet. Niantic has released Pokemon Go in the United States at launch on July 6. Companies do usually a North America release that includes Canada, but not Niantic. While European and Asian countries got official access to Pokemon Go, Canada is still waiting.

The Pokemon Go app has been downloaded 7.5 million times in the United States as of earlier this week. The augmented reality app is almost as engaging as Twitter. Pokemon Go is the most downloaded free app and the top grossing app on iTunes in the US.

Companies start to jump on the Pokemon Go hype. T-Mobile offers free data for trainers using Pokemon Go app on the T-Mobile network. Sprint is making their stores PokeStops offering lures and other incentives. 

The incredible success raised the attention of politics. Senator Al Franken is scrutinizing the Pokemon Go app about privacy and data collection. The Senator has sent a list of questions to the CEO of Niantic, Inc.

The Pokemon Go phenomenon has pushed Nintendo's market value by double digits. The rise of the Nintendo stock in Tokyo has stopped and today it is trading down 4.4%. The Nintendo stock rose about 40% in the past days, adding Billions to the Nintendo market capitalization.
