Classic Pokemon Games Demand Rises After Pokemon Go Success

Pokemon Red Version

Pokemon GO is currently one of the most popular mobile games in the world. Averaging over 20 million active users every day, the game has taken over one country at a time. Pokemon GO recently passed Candy Crush Saga as the most popular mobile game in the U.S. The game has earned more then $15 million in profits from the App Store.

People from all over the world are playing the game, even in countries where the game is not available in yet. Due to the recent increase in the popularity of the mobile game, classic Pokemon games, such as Pokemon Red Version, have benefited greatly from it. The demand for such games has dramatically increased after the success of Pokemon GO. As you can see in the screenshots below, the price of Pokemon Red Version has increased after the release of Pokemon GO on eBay.
