The good news is that Niantic CEO John Hanke has been speaking recently about this, giving all players some great news that major Pokemon Go updates are on the way this year. A couple of months ago the game developer started launching limited time updates and this increased the game's popularity. It means Niantic Labs was able to generate 150 new downloads since September. Eastern Time on March 6, 2017.

Since its introduction in July, the Pokemon Go app has been downloaded 650 million times, with 44,600 terabytes of data transferred. "From February 26 at 1 pm PST to March 6 at 1 pm PST (9 pm United Kingdom time), any Pikachu you encounter in the wild will be wearing a festive party hat", posted Niantic. However, they'll keep their hats even after the celebrations are over, and probably as Raichu if you decide to evolve them later. Sadly, players are allowed to catch these special Pikachu only during the event. However, the Niantic chief insisted that Pokemon Go still sees a high number of daily users.

"The usage is at a more normal level for one thing, but people will now understand what it is and won't be surprised necessarily when hundreds of people gather in the parks for no other reason than looking at their phones and playing Pokemon Go", Hanke said. Additionally, Niantic Labs has teamed up with different retailers such as Sprint and Starbucks who offer PokeStops. We will have to wait a little longer to know what Niantic has in store for Pokemon Go.

When Pokemon Go was first launched it had the entire world out on the streets hunting for Pokemon.
