Less than one week after launching in the U.S., Android users have installed Niantic Labs’ new Pokémon game, Pokémon GO, 10 million times.
Just yesterday, Nintendo News reported that Pokémon GO hit its 5 million download milestone across U.S. Android users. Today, that accomplishment has been shattered, and hype surrounding the game doesn’t appear to be slowing down.
According to the Google Play Store, Trainers have downloaded Pokémon GO somewhere between 10 and 50 million times. In addition, the app still maintains the top position on the “Top Free,” “Top New Free,” “Top Grossing,” and “Trending” charts.
