Pokémon Go has shattered the record for highest earning mobile game launch month by a country mile.

As reported by analytics firm Sensor Tower, Niantic's augmented reality phenomenon set a new world record after grossing over $200m in worldwide net revenue in its first month (and a day).

Comparatively, the previous record-holder, Clash Royale, made about $120m in the same time frame. Behind that is Candy Crush Saga with about $25m.

It's interesting to note that Pokémon Go was only a hair ahead of Clash Royale for its first two and a half weeks on the market, but then its launch in Japan resulted in a colossal uptick.
