With the release of Generation 2, Pokémon Go has rocketed back to the top of the charts.
The mobile game has currently reclaimed the title of number one highest-grossing app on the App Store in the United States, and is the third-highest grossing app on the Google Play Store. Before the big update, Pokémon Go was hovering around the bottom of both stores’ top 10 lists.
“Pokémon Go hadn’t been number one in the U.S. since January 4th, at the end of the New Year’s event,” Sensor Tower’s Randy Nelson told GamesBeat. “It only got as high as number eight during the Valentine’s event.”
The release of over 80 new Pokémon, new items, and new customization options brought back so many players that the game’s servers struggled a bit with the load, an issue that’s familiar for anyone who played at launch.
Niantic has more events planned for Pokémon Go‘s future, with a custom Pikachu scheduled to appear in the game on Pokémon’s 21st anniversary.
