Unbox 84 - PGO Decline Feat
The Pokemon Go juggernaut is steadily losing steam, based on multiple data tracking reports from industry analysts. From a peak of almost 45 million daily active users (DAU) in July, Pokemon Go‘s concurrent users in August now sit at around the 30 million mark.

Bloomberg released the report from industry analyst Axiom Capital Management, who gathered data from Sensor Tower, SurveyMonkey, and Apptopia. Pokemon Go‘s daily active users, downloads, engagement and daily time spent are noticeably on a declining trend.

Niantic has been actively updating the game as of late, stomping cheaters and botters through several security patches. Still, GPS spoofers and glitches abound in the playing field.

Pokemon Go is set to be updated with Version 0.35.0 for Android and 1.5.0 for iOS soon. Here’s a sneak peak of the patch notes from Niantic’s official Facebook page:

  • Implemented Pokémon Appraisal: Trainers will now be able to learn about a Pokémon’s attack and defense capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche or Spark) to determine which of their Pokémon have the most potential for battle.
  • We are still working hard on several new and exciting features to come in the future of Pokémon GO.
  • Minor bot fixes.

  1. The hype may have already cooled down, but the decline can also be attributed for bots, spoofers, etc. Imagine 1 person can have more than 10 bots at a time.

  2. Because right now, the game is just an endless grind. Nakakawalang gana pa yung mga Gym leaders, maswerte na kung may makita kang below 1k ang CP.

  3. Cheaters who own gyms ruin the game and the never ending grind to collect pokémons. They should add more depth to the gameplay like battling a pokémon first before catching. Niantic is a small time developer compared to others and they have a lot in their hands right now.

    Yung iba din kasi sa 45 million users ay nakihype lang talaga.

  4. Pre-mature ang launching nito, kulang ang features, walang masyadong pedeng gawin. All but powerleveling and collecting. The gameplay needs to catch up dahil marami na sa iba ang mataas ang level.

    Ang game app na to dinala lang ng game title na POKEMON, if it wasn’t for that zZzZzZzZzZz. .
