New Pokemon GO Update Fixes GPS Bug, Changes Egg Hatching

And lastly, it's the change made to distance tracking to remedy the Global Positioning System drift.

Since its launch, Pokemon GO has been a smash hit phenomenon that's taken the mobile world by storm.

It's been 24 days since Niantic had not deployed an update to Pokemon Go.

Of course, being a Nintendo IP also helped, as did the game's simple mechanics, core conceit and augmented reality gameplay, suggests the report.

Pokemon GO topped iOS and Google Play downloads for 2016, and stood third in total revenue earnings behind games like Monster Strike and Clash Royale. When such events happen, the game occasionally mistakes the quick shifts as players moving in vehicles and may restrict player access to PokeStops and Gyms near them. In an hour, the popular mobile game from Niantic Labs makes $144,700.

Now that 2017 is in full swing, hopefully Niantic has plenty of plans set for Pokemon GO.

The app was released in July which means that in less than a year, the app was well on its way to reaching the $1 billion mark.

Pokémon Go racked up revenues of around $950m (£768m) in 2016, as the true extent of the game's success has been quantified for the first time in a new report published by market researchers App Annie.

Traditional games like Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga took far longer to hit the $600 million mark, something that Pokémon Go achieved with nearly casual grace.
