Pokemon Go hits 650 million mark

The number was announced by developer Niantic Labs during Google Developer Day at the 2017 Game Developers Conference, and as Polygon points out it suggests the augmented reality game’s popularity is waning, relatively speaking.

Niantic previously revealed Pokémon Go hit the 500 million download mark all the way back in September, two months after the game’s release.

Niantic recently updated the game with new content and 80 Pokémon from Generation Two games Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver.
