Released on July 6th, 2016, Pokémon GO Android users were spending an average of 43 minutes and 23 seconds playing the game within the first two days. For context, Facebook revealed average users spend 50 minutes a day on their platform. Within its first week, the percentage of daily app users of Pokémon GO on Android phones in the US surpassed Tinder, Twitter and even nearly overtook Snapchat.
Pokémon GO gyms have shown up in some bizarre places, drawing players to graveyards, London's MI-5 Headquarters, and the front lawns of some confused citizens. One Australian police station had to release a statement asking players to refrain from entering the station to catch Pokémon.
While hunting for Pokémon, some Pokémon GO players have stumbled upon more than just Rattatas and Sandshrews. One Wyoming teen found a dead body floating in a river while searching for Pokémon, while in Missouri, four men used the app to lure and mug players. Luckily, most people just find Pokémon.
After reading about Pokémon related injuries, Sberban, a Russian bank, is reportedly offering Pokémon GO insurance in anticipation of the title making its way to Russia. Users will be covered for up to 50,000 Rubles or about $800 U.S, so don't go walking off any cliffs in Russia just yet!
Trainers who really want to catch ‘em all have resorted to GPS spoofing, which allows these players to fake their location to be anywhere in the world. If the game detects you’re cheating, however, Pokémon will run away from you, Pokéstops won’t serve you, and Gyms just flat-out won’t have you. And once Niantic gets a hold of your account, players have claimed they’ve been temporarily banned from the game.
