You know that we are fans of a little walk every now and then.
That’s why we were excited back in September to announce
that Pokémon GO Trainers had walked more than 4.6 billion
kilometers since we launched.
Trainers have since racked up some impressive stats.
We are pleased to share that—as of December 7—
the Pokémon GO community has
collectively walked more than 8.7 billion kilometers.
That’s more than 200,000 trips around Earth!
A commercial jetliner would take more
than 1,000 years to cover the same distance.
While covering this distance,
Trainers also caught more than 88 billion Pokémon along the way.
That’s roughly 533 million Pokémon a day!
Get out and go this holiday season,
and let’s add some more kilometers to that total!
Thank you for your continued support!
—The Pokémon GO team
