In several notes we have informed you that the Pokémon GO Fest 2021 was a great success. The virtual event was the best decision Niantic could make and this has been verified with the statistics of the players. Niantic has already shared the fantastic numbers that were achieved during the event. Of course, the company did not talk about the financial numbers, but a report has just shown that it also did excellently economically.
The report comes from the analysis firm Sensor Tower (via Eurogamer), which reveals that the mobile title generated revenue of around $ 21 million. The Pokémon GO Fest 2021 was a 2-day event, so it can be said that each day around $ 10.5 million was generated on average, which is something impressive.

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 is the most lucrative event in the history of Pokémon GO
It is important to mention that, although the figure is impressive, it failed to overcome the Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto, which was held at the beginning of 2021 and was an event of only 1 day. However, as an event, the Pokémon GO Fest 2021 is the most important that the game has had in terms of earnings (which were registered in 2 days).
The event that held the record for being the highest-grossing event in the title was the Pokémon GO Fest 2020, which had achieved the best day under various parameters in the history of the game. Precisely according to Sensor Tower, this 2-day event had achieved a total of $ 17.5 million in revenue, and the first day had been the one that had generated the most profits, with $ 8.9 million.
This is certainly impressive, but it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, remembering that it was recently revealed that Pokémon GO is living its best moment since its premiere in 2016. The title already generated more than $ 5 MMDD and, judging by the generated in the first half of 2021, this is expected to be the best year of the game.
