Pokemon Go launched last year and took the mobile gaming by storm. While non-gamers consider gamers as nerds with no life, according to a new study, Pokemon Go players are happier compared to those who don’t.
The study was conducted by the University Of Wisconsin. According to the study, Pokemon Go players are much friendlier and happier compared to those who don’t.
The more people were playing, the more they were engaging in behaviors that reflected making new connections — making Facebook friends, introducing themselves to someone new, exchanging phone numbers with someone, or spending more time with old friends and learning new things about them.
However, given that it has been a while since the launch of Pokemon Go and one would assume that there aren’t many players playing it right now. Well prepare to be surprised as recently, Niantic revealed that over 65 million players play Pokemon Go every month.
The estimated numbers were released by Niantic while thanking the community for their dedication and support.
Such player engagement in this mobile Pokemon title can be credited to the successful events that have brought a large number of players, as the events allowed players to catch rare Pokemon.
Pokemon Go is an augmented reality game developed by Niantic Labs for Android and iOS.
