According to Sensor Tower's data, Niantic's mobile augmented reality game Pokémon Go generated $85m in revenue during September 2018. With this staggering figure, it helped the game to secure fourth place in the firm's overall revenue charts, and the game's highest since November last year.

The number of game installs also swelled with 8.86 million downloads during September 2018, which helped it to clock 100 percent rise over the year before.

The augmented reality mobile game rose to instant fame right after its release on 6 July 2016. The Pokemon Go was first released in certain countries in July 2016, and in other regions over the next few months.

Overall, the Pokemon Go app has grossed a revenue of $2.01 billion worldwide since its inception with a total of 522 million downloads.
