Pokemon games pull in $2.5 billion on mobile

...with Pokemon GO doing the bulk of the heavy lifting

Pokemon GO has been a huge hit, but it's not the only Pokemon mobile game. When you take a look at the entire landscape of mobile Pokemon games, just how much bank has the Pokemon Co. made? Sensor Tower has shared those details in a new report.

- Pokémon games on mobile have made about $2.5 billion worldwide
- total game downloads sit at 640 million
- these numbers do not include Android revenues in China
- Pokemon GO has earned 98 percent of that revenue, or about $2.45 billion
- Pokémon Shuffle has pulled in $25 million
- Pokémon Duel, Pokémon Quest, Pokémon: Magikarp Jump, and Pokémon TCG Online make up the rest of the revenue
- Pokémon Shuffle and Pokémon TCG Online are the only two Pokémon mobile games available in China
- the U.S. accounted for 35 percent ($875 million) of revenue, while Japan is next with 29 percent ($725 million)
- Pokémon Go makes up the majority of those 640 million downloads, accounting for 86 percent of them (550 million)


Pokemon Duel is a solid game. There's some good strategy, and the element of luck keeps it interesting. I'm curious to see what they'll do next in the mobile area, since one-upping Go would be near impossible.

Pokemon Go is such a monster even though it basically launched as a half finished product haha

Awesome sales!!
