Pokemon Pikachu

Since it was launched, Niantic’s mobile title Pokémon GO has been extremely successful. In July, new estimates revealed the game had gone from strength to strength surpassing a whopping $1.8 billion in total revenue. Although the game's player base had dwindled since its super-launch in 2016, $2 million was apparently still being spent on a daily basis. 

According to Sensor Tower, the game has recently made a resurgence on the US iOS App Store - as the top grossing app on 12th August. As pointed out by Nintendo Soup, the likely reasoning behind this is because of the recent Pokémon GO Community Day. Before then, the mobile hit was in 14th place on the charts and the last time it was at the top was during the month of May.
