Pokemon Go may be one of the most installed gaming apps on iOS and Android, but is its popularity declining?
A new report has been released detailing the most installed Android apps in Q1 2017.
Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Go was in the top 50, behind the likes of Facebook, WhatsApp, Netflix and Twitter.
According to the Avast report, Pokemon Go was the 36th most installed app on Android in Q1, ahead of fellow gaming apps like Clash of Clans, Super Mario Run and 8 Ball Pool.
But Pokemon Go isn’t the most popular gaming app on the list, charting below Candy Crush Saga at 23, Clash Royale at 35 and more surprisingly, Subway Surfers at 33.
None of the games were listed in the top 10 battery draining apps, or in the top 10 storage hogging apps.
The news comes during the Pikachu Outbreak event in Yokohama, Japan.
The Pikachu Outbreak event is a week long celebration of Pokemon, including Pokemon Go.
Special park events let fans capture Shiny Pikachu Pocket Monsters, as well as an abundance of Pokemon from different in-game regions.
There’s also an array of events taking place, including a carnival, a stadium gathering and dances.
fans are flocking to Yokohama in Japan, where the Pikachu Outbreak event is in full swing.
UK fans can also capture unusual Pokemon, as rare Pocket Monsters come to UK cities.
Trainers in select cities across Europe will be able to capture the likes of Kangaskhans and Unowns.
According to Niantic, this will last until August 21.
“We’ve heard that as early as this weekend, some Pokemon rarely seen in Europe, including Kangaskhan and Unown, may begin appearing in certain European cities,” reads a Niantic post.
“This unusual occurrence is predicted to last until August 21.”
These Pokemon can be found in UK cities like Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, London and Manchester.
