Pokémon GO players still love to spend, as Pokémon GO is back in the Top 5 grossing apps on the iPhone marketplace. Android based Trainers are not that keen on spending money on in-game events, as Pokémon GO is still at number 23 on the Google Play store.

The Solstice event is proving to be one of the best events so far, standing shoulder to shoulder with the fabled Halloween 2016 event.

The event also experienced one of the smoothest event launches to date, as there were no “first-hour-rares-everywhere” oddities reported, nor did the PTC (Pokémon Trainer Club) login went down.

According to player reports, the event spawns are uniformly distributed across all Biomes, bringing special delight to players who live in the Desert biome. Lapras should be less mythical after the Solstice event ends.

As a reminder, the Solstice event features the following:

  • Increased fire and ice spawns
  • 3x throw bonuses
  • 3x catch bonus
  • 5x egg hatch bonus
  • 50% Lucky Egg sale
  • the2000guy

    I think the hype is more due to the gym rework that should start immediately after the solstice event. Sure that people returned to play also because fire Pokemon like Cyndaquil, Charmander, and their evolution are really difficult to find wildly unless you live near a nest.

      Fire and ice are the types that are most consistently missing for people. A lot of people claim to never see fire types, and I never saw ice types or their preevolutions until Swinub (ground/ice and still very rare). I completed my Gen1 pokedex ice types with hatches, not catches, which took me the longest to do. The gym rework hype will come after the gyms go down.

    Actually #7 for Top Grossing, but that’s much better than the last event where it didn’t even crack the Top 10.

    people who have money to spend will usually chose iPhone instead of android. iPhone’s expensive, and android’s reasonable. so, it’s not surprising if iPhone users pays more than android users
