Nintendo’s stock is still on the rise. The company’s share price is now at over 30,000 yen, which is the highest since April 2010. It goes without saying that the recent surge can be attributed to Pokemon GO.

Nintendo’s market cap has also doubled since the app’s debut. It’s at over $40 billion, which is apparently higher than Sony.

Update (7/18): T-Mobile has clarified that the offer is not automatically applied. Customers will need to claim it via the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, which we have links to below.

“This deal is not automatically applied to all T-Mobile customers – they must claim the deal via the T-Mobile Tuesdays app in order to get the data. In order to avoid confusion, we want to be explicitly clear that people need to claim the offer versus having it automatically applied to their account.”


Original (7/14): Pokemon GO has been doing incredibly well since launching next week, and now T-Mobile is taking notice. As part of T-Mobile Tuesday, customers will be given free, unlimited data for the game. This will take place on July 19.

That’s only a portion of what T-Mobile is offering. Here’s the full rundown:

– Free, unlimited data on Pokémon Go, so it won’t touch your high-speed data—for a full year!
– Free Lyft rides up to $15 to get to a new PokéStop or Gym
– Free Wendy’s Frosty to fuel up for your hunting trip
– 50% off select accessories – including portable power packs and chargers at T-Mobile stores – so you can keep on playing for hours

The T-Mobile Tuesdays app can be downloaded on iOS and Android. That’ll allow them to participate in next week’s initiative.

On July 10, in-app purchases made in Pokemon GO topped the rest of the mobile gaming market, data from Slice Intelligence reveals. The app also “accounted for nearly 47 percent of the entire mobile gaming market on the same day.”

Slice Intelligence report covers some other areas as well. For example, with microtransactions, 100 PokeCoins is the most purchased coin bundle. Almost 37 percent of in-app purchases have been spent on that item. Additionally over 30 percent of Pokemon GO’s revenue has resulted from the 1,200 PokeCoins option.

This past weekend, there were 462 GameStop stores that were either a PokeStop or Gym. According to CEO Paul Raines, sales were up 100 percent at these locations. Raines added that merchandise sales are up “significantly across the board.”

Pokemon GO is producing a new glitch, and it’s impacting a good chunk of players. Those who are affected see that Pokemon around them are three steps away. This doesn’t change regardless of where you are or how much you walk. The “Nearby” tab still shows that the Pokemon is three pawprints away.

So… what to do? Waiting for an official fix might be the best idea. GearNuke also offers up a temporary bypass (which may or may not work):

– Close Pokemon GO if your nearby Pokemon still show as three steps behind
– Open it up again when you are sure to have moved near them
– Follow the diagram below to determine the location of each Pokemon that shows up as nearby on the world map
– Forcing the app to close and reopen can often refresh the data gained for each Pokemon resulting in the paw prints data updating on the next boot of the app

A whole bunch of European countries received Pokemon GO on Friday. There was one notable region left out, however: France.

In a statement provided to IGN, The Pokemon Company confirmed that Pokemon GO’s launch in France was delayed due to the horrible attack that took place in Nice last week. The full note reads:

“As a sign of respect for the French people in this time of national mourning, the release of Pokémon GO is postponed. Our thoughts and prayers are with France and the victims affected by this terrible attack.”

Pokemon GO does not have a set date in France. However, IGN reports that it may be available later this week after an official period of national mourning ends.
