Pokemon Go has brought in more money during its first month of availability than massive hits such as Candy Crush Soda Saga and Clash Royale.


It’s no secret Pokemon Go is a popular game. If you’re not actively playing it, you’re very likely to have seen it mentioned on TV, and called both the best thing and the worst in the world.

It’s also no secret that developer Niantic and the Pokemon Company have been enjoying massive financial success with the game, breaking one record after another. Just a few days ago, the game was estimated to have earned over $160 million in revenue.

Now, the same app analytics company, Sensor Tower. has revealed that Pokemon Go has now passed the $200 million mark for revenue worldwide. If you think this figure is impressive on its own, wait until you see the games Pokemon Go has beaten.


As you can see in the chart above, in the month since Pokemon Go has been available, it has overtaken revenue earned by Clash Royale and Candy Crush Soda Saga over the same period of their launch cycles. Seeing as the game was the fastest to reach 10 million downloads, these numbers are no less impressive.

Daily usage also remains high, according to the app intelligence company, an average of 26 minutes in total, which definitely bodes well for the game’s longevity.
