Pokemon Go Loses More Than 15 Million Daily Users in a Month

Pokemon Go engagement and interest in augmented reality has also dropped.

The Pokemon Go phenomenon has started to dissipate, as the augmented-reality game has already lost more than 15 million daily users since this time last month, according to graphs from Axiom Capital Management that were published by Bloomberg. The chart only goes until August 18, so the number of daily active users could be even lower now.

Additionally, the charts, which source mobile research company Apptopia, show Pokemon Go engagement has decreased by more than 50 percent. And after a huge spike, "augmented reality" has been searched for far less on Google since Pokemon Go's initial launch, though it's still more popular than before its release.

Axiom Capital senior analyst Victor Anthony says that investors in companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat "have been concerned that this new user experience has been detracting from time spent on other mobile focused apps." With the downturn in Pokemon Go's mindshare, Anthony says investors can rest easy.

"The declining trends should assuage investor concerns about the impact of Pokemon Go on time spent on the above named companies," wrote Anthony. He said that if the decline in users continues, it could spell trouble not only for Pokemon Go but also augmented reality in general, adding that "interest in virtual reality remains high."

It was believed about a month ago that Pokemon Go had hit its peak number of users. The augmented-reality game was the number one free app on the App Store, but it's since dropped to 11. It continues to hold on to the number one spot for Top Grossing app.

Nintendo's stock surged in price with the launch of Pokemon Go. The company broke records and even became more valuable than Sony at one point. However, after Nintendo released a statement that explained its involvement with Pokemon Go, which it had no direct hand in making, its stock took a dive.

I am just more tired of there being no pokemon around me. Why can't I find decent pokemon walking down my empty Street instead of a busy sidewalk?

I know right?

I'm also tired of wandering around graveyards looking for a Gengar and of people telling me that it was rude of me walking around a funeral flashing my phone.

Without there being any way to know how far pokemon are around you, people likely gave up waking around aimlessly, never knowing if they are heading in the right direction or not. That's likely why less people are logging in.

You guys won't believe the kinds of Pokemons I've found in Reality's room when he's asleep!

The game doesn't have enough content to keep it interesting.

lost interest in a couple hours after booting it up. I don't understand the draw because there isn't any content besides "look who I caught". It is a glorified version of those card games that are so prevalent on the app stars; except here you have to find the cards instead of buying them.
