Pokemon GO clears 750 million downloads as Niantic prepares first anniversary celebrations

Niantic’s Pokemon GO has now surpassed 750 million downloads just in time to celebrate its first anniversary.
The developer will be hosting a number of real-world and in-game events to celebrate its first birthday, including Pokemon GO Fest in Chicago on July 22nd.
The event will gather players together to interact with one another while participating in a range of Pokemon-themed activities.
Real-world events will also be hosted across Europe and in Japan, with The Pokemon Company organising a “Pikachu Outbreak” event in its home country. An in-game “Fire & Ice” event will also take place from June 13th.
An incredible first year
“It’s been an incredible first year for Pokemon GO thanks to the passion and dedication from the global Trainer community,” said John Hanke, CEO of Niantic, Inc.
“As part of the first anniversary, we’ll be giving players around the world the chance to enjoy fun in-game events, engage with friends and other trainers at real-world events, and much more.”
Pokemon GO doesn’t get as much coverage in the media as it did when it first launched, but it continues to perform extraordinarily well for Niantic. As of April 2017 it had 65 million MAUs, which is around the size of the UK’s population.
