Three years after its initial release, Pokémon GB has just surpassed the one billion downloads, as we learn from the development studio Niantic. It must be said that the title was a launch thunderous, with 500 million downloads in September 2016, two months after the release of the game. In February 2017, the total had risen to 650 million, then 800 million in may 2018, before going on the fateful one-billion mark today as a note Serebii. Of course, the number of players, real is for its part held secret, and we imagine it to be much lower, even if Pokémon GO remains extremely cost-effective, SensorTower has estimated that the game has reported 2.65 billion.
