Pokémon GO Players Have Walked Around The Earth 200,000 Times

Games News Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO wants its players to get active and, based on these numbers, it has succeeded. According to a blog post from developers Niantic Labs, GO players have collectively walked 8.7 billion kilometers, or roughly 5.4 million miles, since the game launched in July . That’s equivalent to walking around the Earth 200,000 times, or walking all the way to Pluto and then walking a couple billion kilometers farther. In all that walking, players have caught 88 billion Pokémon, averaging out to about 533 million Pokémon per day. Watch the video below to see a visualization of just how far Pokémon GO players have gone to catch them all.
