Pokemon GO Became More Popular Than Porn

Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is officially more popular than porn. That might be a funny way of acknowledging the app’s success, but in this case it looks like that statement is a legitimate one, which shows just how popular the franchise is.

To be fair, this is hardly the first time Pokemon ruled the world. The 1990s was a great time to be Nintendo, since that was when Pokemon burst into the scene and took over the world with its Game Boy games and trading cards, along with the hit television show. People are more likely to name more Pokemon than pornstars.

YouPorn?s Twitter account acknowledged that Pokemon GO was more popular than porn by congratulating Nintendo America for the app’s success. It’s a bit surreal to see an adult website praise a mobile game that was meant to appeal to children and nostalgic fans, but weirder things have happened in the world. There is actual Pokemon porn, for one thing, but that is another story entirely.

Still, it does go and show how the franchise has resonated with fans of all ages. The fact that fans would rather catch Pikachu than look at naked men and women fornicate is a testament to how much the Pokemon name means to people of all ages. It will be interesting to see how much longer this will be the case, but fans of the series can enjoy the franchise’s renewed popularity while it lasts.

Who needs porn when you can catch em all?

Veterans expecting a mobile version of the Game Boy classics are mistaken, as this is a completely new experience for younger and older gamers. The mobile game has no story or wild Pokemon battles, as the main goal is to capture Pokemon, become gym leaders and explore environments with friends. Niantic has stated in the past that this game is more about socializing than being the very best trainer, and it seems like the payoff succeeded, since it’s officially more popular than porn.

Pokemon GO should be available to everyone soon, though there is no telling when that is exactly. Like most porn sites, the mobile game is free with exclusive goodies to those who want to pay with real money.
