Developer Niantic haver released some interesting data for Pokemon Go – their augmented reality, monster catching hit. The stats are impressive, to say the least.
From the official announcement:
We are pleased to share that—as of December 7—the Pokémon GO community has collectively walked more than 8.7 billion kilometers. That’s more than 200,000 trips around Earth! Fun fact: A commercial jetliner would take more than 1,000 years to cover the same distance. While covering this distance, Trainers also caught more than 88 billion Pokémon along the way. That’s roughly 533 million Pokémon a day!
Pokemon Go is currently celebrating the festive season. Players have until December 30, 7AM NZT to capture a limited edition Pikachu sporting a Santa hat.
