By now, you must have heard a thing or two about Pokémon Go. Psh, it’s not just a mobile game – it’s a cultural phenomenon! But can you guess just how much Niantic makes within minutes from Pokémon Go? Well, let’s just put it this way: it’s a lot.

With AppInstitute’s real-time tracker, you can see Pokémon Go’s total revenue from the moment you’ve opened the page. Not only that, it shows you the total number of downloads by country as well as the average time each iOS user spends trying to “catch ‘em all.”

How to play Pokemon Go (and everything else you need to know)

I assure you, the figures you are going to see will be mind-blowing.

Within two minutes or so from being on the page, the total revenue that Niantic pocketed from Pokémon Go was roughly $22,000. And it took merely around four minutes for the total revenue to surpass the $40,000 mark.

According to AppInstitute, the average time that an iOS user spends on Pokémon is a little over 30 minutes, which easily surpasses other top mobile apps such as Facebook and Snapchat by a great margin. It also boasts the most peak daily active users, reaching 24 million. Yes, it has overtaken even the almighty Candy Crush Saga.

All this is even more extraordinary given the fact that Pokémon Go was released just earlier this month and has not even reached every country yet.
