    Because somebody actually caught one?

  2. Olivia says:

    Everyone downloaded it and bought features to win and catch more pokemon go which made it popular and therefore stock to rise. It dropped because it was broadcasted that it could locate where you were due to your GPS which made people concerned about privacy and also because just like a phase people got over it after a while when a new product comes out

  3. Mark Schwecke says:

    Because the Nintendo announced that they didn’t actually have anything to do with pokemon go. the pokemon company and niantic were the 2 companies involved in creating and licensing.
