Despite dropping it's proportion of paid users so significantly, the mobile app sensation still holds a huge chunk of the mobile gaming market, owning more than a quarter of the total and boasting nearly seven times the sales revenue of its closest competitor Candy Crush Saga.

Pokemon Go Drops 79%, but Still Remains on Top
Analytics company Slice Intelligence reported Friday that mobile sensation Pokemon Go has dropped 79% of its paying users since it's peak on July 15, but still continues to generate more revenue than other mobile games in the market.

Having earned 28.4% of total game revenue in the United States in August, the app's closest competitor, Candy Crush Saga, earned 4.5% in comparison. Slice also states that US online shoppers drove a huge spike in Pokemon merchandise during that same month.
