    How it works

    The Truth Behind Pokemon Go

    Pokemon go, such a promising game, why did it happen?

    Pokemon Go

    I bet you heard about pokemon go, a promising game with people who waited to it's release for months.
    On it's release you'd find almost anyone with pokemon go on it's phone, what happened to pokemon go? Why did it die?
    There are many reasons to why pokemon go died, here I'll represent three of them.

    Please note that this article is based on my opinions.



    Pokemon go had a great idea that no one thought of before, combine outdoor activities (such as walking) with a fun and well made game.
    Pokemon go is a simple game, you walk around and catch pokemon, it had many features such as pokestops you can spin for pokeballs and other rewards, gyms where you can team up with other in order to maintain in your possesion and eggs you can hatch by walking.
    At it's start pokemon go made many people go out and walk in order to hatch pokemon and catch new pokemon, it was the hot topic everywhere, including the news, but not always as a good thing, which takes us to our first reason:

    The accidents 

    You might have heard the rumors about people dying while playing pokemon go, that scares a lot of people, parents started to think pokemon go has a bad influence on their kids.
    The truth is, people were reckless.
    Pokemon go was not made so people would drive while playing it for better results, it was meant to make people starting doing sports in a fun and enjoyable way.
    However, a few reckless people did not pay attention while playing and played in risky places which caused many people getting hurt, giving pokemon go a bad reputation.



    The hacks
    Another big reason for pokemon go's failure is the huge amount of hacks that were made, due to the fact so many people played it, so many different hacks were made for pokemon go and they simply couldn't keep up with all those hacks.
    Having so many hacks the point of pokemon go was missed, players who tried to play legit found the game awfully hard and players who used hacks found the game awfully boring, making people from both sides quit the game.



    The game

    As mentioned before, the game's idea was to make people start walking, on paper, this idea seemed like a great one, but after a while people decided they don't want to walk.
    The biggest problem in pokemon go was simply the fact it was based on walking, people don't want to walk nowadays, making pokemon idea seem like a great game at the start, but later on, when you get tired of walking, and the excitment of finding a new pokemon is lower, pokemon go becomes less attractive than before, causing many people to stop playing.



    The players
    As mentioned, pokemon go had a lot of players, so I think it's obvious most of them didn't actually play pokemon or were pokemon fans.
    This may not be the real reason, but to them pokemon go was a game to play for a bit then delete.
    They didn't understand the mechanics of pokemon and how thing work, causing a lot of pokemon go memes appear.
    As the players didn't know the mechanics of pokemon go, after a while they got bored, as they had nothing to wait for, while pokemon fans were waiting for pokemon go to add another generation with new pokemon, the players who weren't pokemon fans just thought that's where the game ends, and slowly got bored of it even if they weren't affected by the other reasons.

    Pokemon go is not completely dead as there are still a lot of people playing and a lot of new features being added however, there are way less players now than there were when it just started.

    They had a botched launch which lost a lot of potential players and fast forward a few years, the interest simply wane and people move on to other games or return to their normal life.
