I'll be honest with you. I am still half expecting the Pokemon Go fever to die down even though I don’t think it will anytime soon. I mean, what is there not to like? Pokemon Go is taking us millennials back to a time when we used to watch it on T.V. Add to that the dopamine blast you get out of actually going on a quest. As if we needed more reasons to glue our eyes to our phones. As you can see, I flit between excitement over AR going mainstream and complaining about the absurdity of adults losing it over a game.
I turned to Discover to see if brands too were going nuts over Pokemon Go. And guess what I found? There were about 12,000 pieces of Brand Content across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, in North America alone that mention Pokemon. Remember, this is in just two weeks! I dug a little deeper to identify certain trends in Pokemon Go content that won a lot of engagement for brands.
