UPDATE: Niantic has said in a statement that Pokemon GO’s recent third party revenue estimates are “incorrect”, and that the game’s revenue numbers in 2023 so far are up on last year. Read more on that through here.

Original story follows:

Pokemon GO has been one of the biggest games in the mobile space for as long as it’s been around, and over the course of the last seven years, it’s been a massive money maker on a consistent basis. The last couple of months, however, have seen a downward trend where its revenues are concerned.

That’s as per a report published by Mobilegamer.biz, which reveals that Pokemon GO was the twelfth-highest grossing mobile game worldwide with over $34.7 million raked in. That, however, is down from revenues of $42.8 million March, which itself was down from February’s $58 million revenue. The 40% drop over this period aligns with Niantic’s controversial decision to rework Remote Raids.

Interestingly, as VGC points out, Pokemon GO earned roughly $58 million in revenues on average per month in 2022, which means the last couple of months have seen the game performing well below average. In fact, the mobile title’s April numbers are the lowest it has seen in over years, since February 2018.
