The numbers are just starting as Niantic plans plenty of promotions, updates and live events for Pokémon GO. The game is still very popular among the community of Pokémon lovers for its unique gameplay of requiring players to physical travel to places in search of new Pokémons. The more players travel, the more they get the opportunity to catch a rare Pokémon.
