It was has been a phenomenal 12 months, the video game industry has been booming and the popularity of The Legend of Zelda, Mario and Pokémon has soared, but so has the “King of Cool” called Pokémon GO.


Everyone knew Pokémon GO was going to take off and be big, but no one, not even Niantic and The Pokémon Company expect it to be as popular as it did become and while it may not be the global dominator it was a few months ago, Pokémon GO is still an app and a force to be reckoned with and because the app is now in its anniversary month, having been an actual thing released in the public for over a year, we wanted to do a little something for the players of the app.


So we reached out to Niantic and asked if we could get a comment or two on how Niantic feel about the whole thing one year and do they have anything to say to the Trainers and in true, Senior Product Manager for Niantic, Tatsuo Nomura had the following statement to share:

“It’s been an incredible journey with even more new and exciting adventures to come. Thanks to all of the Trainers around the world who continue to show their passion for exploration, discovery and building meaningful relationships in Pokémon GO.”


We understand a lot of you soon got bored of the app, but things are changing, even more so than they have already and the time to return to the world and madness of Pokémon GO has arrived. So what are you waiting for? It is time to train on!
