Based on its estimations, Sensor Tower reports that Pokemon GO has generated over $200 million net revenue worldwide. The app managed to do so during its first month of availability across iOS and Android.

Pokemon GO has performed better than Supercell’s Clash Royale and King’s Candy Crush Soda Saga, two huge mobile downloads. The chart above shows that Niantic’s game earned more revenue through the first month. We’re also able to see how Pokemon GO took off even further once it arrived in Japan.

Sensor Tower also notes in its report that Pokemon GO players are still using it for about 26 minutes each day.

Various businesses have reaped the benefits of Pokemon GO, bringing them extra customers and attention. However, there are some institutions and private areas that haven’t been happy about being a PokeStop. Niantic is fortunately now starting to act on removal requests.

The Provo City Library is one such place that asked Niantic to take down its status as a PokeStop. They were told on August 2 that their request had been approved, and PokeStops were actually removed more quickly than they anticipated. Similar stories should begin popping up more frequently very soon.

Niantic CEO John Hanke has penned a new message about Pokemon GO on the company’s official website.

The main point of the letter was to highlight the importance of maintaining service. Niantic said it was delayed in bringing out the game across Latin America “due to aggressive efforts by third parties to access our servers outside of the Pokemon GO game client and our terms of service”. Third-parties were blocked to free up resources, transition to new features, and avoid cheating.

Hanke also said that Niantic has “heard feedback about the Nearby feature in the game and are actively working on it.”

The full message reads:

Things have been pretty crazy here at Niantic over the last few weeks but despite all of the ups and downs we get up every day inspired by the original goals of Niantic – to create an experience that encourages healthy outdoor exploration and social gameplay. Every positive story we hear (like this one from the UK) motivates us to keep working to support the game and continue the roll-out. Running a product like Pokémon GO at scale is challenging. Those challenges have been amplified by third parties attempting to access our servers in various ways outside of the game itself.

Pokemon GO Plus is available for pre-order on Amazon Germany. You can reserve the accessory here.

Originally, Pokemon GO Plus was on track for late July. Nintendo ended up delaying it to September last week.

Niantic has issued a new status update for Pokemon GO on Facebook to provide players with the latest information about the game.

The company first confirmed Pokemon GO’s roll-out throughout Latin America. We already mentioned its availability in Brazil and Mexico, but the game should now be released across Central and South America as a whole.

Niantic also addressed complaints regarding the removal of the Battery Saver mode on iOS. It was taken away “as several users were experiencing it to be buggy, but we are fairly confident that a fix for this should roll out within the next several days.” Also mentioned is how the team has “been working long hours to fix many other bugs and bring some exciting new features to Pokemon GO in the future.”
