With more fans and users who are currently buried in work and are yet to realise the launch, the game will definitely be on tremendous surge in its app store rankings in the coming days.
The game, developed by Nintendo and Niantic Labs, has been a tremendous success for Nintendo, being downloaded over 30 million times and doubling the company’s stock value.
