On July 18, Pokemon Go was the number 1 trending item on all of eBay, thanks to over 444,000 views of Pokemon merchandise. Pokemon Go remains in the lead, with a decent increase in views and clicks during every country release. Not only that, but since the app’s release, a Pokemon-related item has sold every minute around the world.


This translates to a 57 percent increase from its average selling rate. The list of Pokemon items include t-shirts, caps, cards and other random items. eBay is not the only company effected by the Pokemon GO craze as Apple has taken an increase of Stock and Nintendo has lost a bunch of shares on the way.
