Pokémon GO grabs 5 Guinness World Records

The Pokémon Go app may have only been released a month ago but it has become an instant global and cultural phenomenon. People all over the world have been using the game's GPS technology to track down and catch their favourite Pokémon in real-world locations, before training them up to battle other players in "gyms".

1. Most revenue grossed by a mobile game in its first month

RMC deserves a Guinness World Record for rawest beard.

Correction: RMC deserves a Guinness World Record for the hundreds of unique Pokemon GO-related gifs per week

At this point I'm just waiting for a repeat of a gif so we can call our RMC.

I don't even care about the stories anymore. (well I kinda do... since the stories dictate the gif).

Pokemon Go news gifs is now one of the most looked forward to things here at GN for me now. Thanks RMC!
