When Pokémon Go first showed its face just a little over 10 months ago today, we didn’t know what to expect. We didn’t expect it to be such a massive hit. We didn’t expect it to take the internet by storm, to the point where it’s the only thing we see, everywhere we go.

Niantic have even been given an award from YouPorn – I don’t think I need to clarify exactly what that is.

They award is called a “Wood Badge” – and it’s been awarded to Niantic for, supposedly, being able to overtake porn in the Google Trends graph. I created a more recent one, for reference, below.

Honestly, I’m not surprised. This could only be the beginning, with the way things are going, and I’m completely OK with that. Are you?
