At its peak, Pokemon GO took the gaming world by storm. The game that was born out of the partnership between The Pokemon Company and Niantic became an instant hit! Mainly since it offered something that was never seen before. That is the chance to truly travel and search for Pokemons that appear on your screen.

The big question these days is if Pokemon GO is still as relevant as it was during its prime. You’d see people congregating in random places which didn’t seem important enough, but now those people are gone. Are they? Here’s what’s actually happening since GO’s supposed hey-days.
