It is interesting to watch the unannounced head-on battle between a week-old augmented reality game and other popular apps like Twitter and Tinder which are in existence since a decade and have millions of daily active users.
Pokemon Go’s popularity charts weren’t the only thing we intended to cover in this writing. Another major reason comes from the Tokyo stock market, where Pokemon Go has been the reason for a major spike in Nintendo’s stock which jumped 23% in a single day i.e. about a massive sum of $9 billion. Nintendo has got the chance to taste this much success after almost 23 years. As the numbers are in their favor, Nintendo should declare 23 as their lucky charm.
This world famous game has been reported for various bugs and app crashes. So, the worldwide release of the much talked about Pokemon Go has been put on a hold.

But we would like to tell you that a website named APKMirror has gathered quite an enormous amount of organic traffic by hosting the APK of the game.
