Whether you love it or hate it, since its launch less than two weeks ago, new mobile game Pokémon GO has taken over the lives and lunch breaks of many at Mustard – as well as the rest of the world. The smartphone app allows gamers (or Pokémon Trainers), to seek out and catch Pokémon in the “real world.” Pokémon GO already has 21 million daily active users and has been downloaded more times than dating app Tinder. Users are on the app for an average 33 minutes a day, more than Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram, allowing Nintendo to rake in roughly $1.6 million; daily.
