Niantic's Pokémon Go’s reign might finally be over. The Wall Street Journal reports that the augmented-reality game’s standing as the top-grossing app in Apple’s U.S. app store has come to an end after 74 days—it was replaced by Supercell Oy's battle game Clash Royale, which recently rolled out an update.
According to mobile app intelligence firm SensorTower, Pokémon Go’s 74-day streak makes it the third longest. Supercell’s Clash of Clans holds the top spot for 347 consecutive days followed by King’s Candy Crush Saga at 109 days.
That said, Pokémon Go still remains No. 1 in eight countries: Australia, Great Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, and Thailand. SensorTower also cites that the app is ranked in the top 5 in 38 countries, including the United States. On the Google Play store, Pokémon Go remains the top-grossing app at the time of publication.
While it’s run as the top-grossing app on Apple’s app store has come to an end, the gaming app has set other records. Pokémon Go was the most downloaded app in the first week of an app release to the fastest app to reach 50 million installs on Google Play. Game developer Niantic Inc. reported that the game had been downloaded over 500 million times around the globe. And, according to a new report from business intelligence firm App Annie, the app is the fastest game to have reached $500 million in revenue.
Just because fewer players are downloading the app, doesn’t mean the game is any less popular. Previously released engagement data from SensorTower found that players spent an average of 32 minutes on the game in August and 33 minutes in July.
Earlier this month, Niantic Inc. and Pokémon Co. unveiled Pokémon Go Plus—a $35 Bluetooth-enabled accessory that lets consumers play the game without pulling out their smartphones—and a Buddy feature allowing for players to walk around with their favorite Pokémon within the game.
