The data shows that the impact of three events together was equal to that of Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles County ($ 234-477 million). On an individual basis, however, it was similar to that of the tournament UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 held in nine host cities in the UK ($ 60 million).

There are in fact tens of thousands of players who travel internationally and nationally to connect with each other and create their Pokémon GO communities. The coaches who participate can catch featured Pokémon but also complete special research exclusive to the event, all of it exploring the physical place and the surrounding city.
