But what really impressed Superdata was the performance that it saw from Pokémon Go.

Pokemon Go spending rose 60% month-over-month to thanks to a combination of warm weather and even more options for playing at home,” the report mentioned. “Earnings for the game typically rise during the summer months, and May 2020 was no exception.”
