Even Team Rocket helped out

If you asked someone to name one of the most popular mobile games of the past decade, there's a good chance they might mention Niantic's augmented reality title, Pokémon GO.

The game was first released in 2016 and as of October this year, surpassed $3 billion in lifetime gross revenue and has been downloaded more than 541 million times. Now, in its latest milestone, it's been listed as one of the top-grossing games of 2019 and the decade by the mobile data and analytics firm, App Annie.

In terms of the revenue GO made in 2019, it was sixth on the list, right underneath Lineage M, while Fate / Grand Order took out the top spot. Supercell's 2012 title Clash of Clans placed first in terms of revenue earnings of the decade, and GO was eighth on this list.

On the download front, GO wasn't able to break the top downloads of 2019 or the past decade. Below is the full rundown, courtesy of GameIndustry.biz.
