It has been about four days since the official release of the Pokemon GO app on the Google Play Store, and it has taken the world by storm. While it is officially only available for download in the US, Australia and New Zealand at the moment, that hasn't stopped the rest of the world from finding ways to get the game on their device. It has been such a hit among Pokemon fans to the point the game's servers are having a hard time to keep up. However, new data has surfaced indicating that the newly released game is far bigger than one might expect it to be.
While it is not available for official download in the rest of the world, fans have been able to bypass downloading it from the Play Store and have instead opted to download the .APK file from various websites such as APKMirror. Since the release of the game, APKMirror has seen a steep increase of visitors, from just 600,000 visits on July 5, to over 4 million visits the next day. This is a huge 597% increase in visits. Pokemon GO also has a high app retention rate which is good news for the app, as it is less likely that a user will uninstall the game within 3-7 days of downloading it.
