Pokemon Go Lure, Lucky Egg addicts make Niantic $200m

By Alan Ng - Aug 9, 2016

Obviously a good portion of the world right now are completely addicted to Pokemon Go and anything to do with it. We can see that first hand with the desperate search for third-party trackers, but now some official statistics have come in with regards to how much money Niantic Labs are making from Pokemon Go sales vs Clash Royale and Candy Crush Soda Saga.

While you all rush to buy PokeCoins on things like Lucky Eggs, PokeBalls and Lures, Niantic has been laughing all the way to the bank by pocketing $200 million in the space of one month.


This immediately sends Pokemon Go straight to the top in the revenue charts, leaving Clash Royale and Candy Crush Soda Saga well behind in the process.


The handy infographic from SensorTower shows that Pokemon Go is on a clear path upwards and if Niantic can make $200 million in a month, imagine what their 12 month figures are going to look like.
