Pokémon Go breaks five world records

Since its launch in July, mobile smash hit Pokmon Go has set a number of world records.

That’s according to Guinness World Records, with research courtesy of SuperData. The duo report that Pokmon Go grossed the most revenue of a mobile game in its first month, generating a huge $206.5m.

It was downloaded 130m times, making it the most-downloaded mobile game in its first month.

Pokmon Go was also at the top of the most charts internationally. In terms of downloads, the title was No.1 in 70 different countries at the same time. Meanwhile, it was also the highest-grossing mobile game in 55 countries simultaneously.

And last but not least, Pokmon Go set the record for the time it took for a mobile to gross $100m. It was just 20 days before the title hit this barrier.
