We have no doubt that first month downloads of 'Super Mario Run' will be historic–likely much greater than 'Pokemon Go' – thanks to months of prominent featuring by Apple, extensive media coverage, and more.
Nintendo is the only company in the world that can put a $10 fixed price mobile game out there.
It's going to be crucial game for Nintendo … they absolutely have to nail it.
Starbucks has played an important role in creating welcoming places for people to come together for refreshment and social engagement. The physical locations component of the collaboration is important to us as we look for ways to use technology to encourage exploration, exercise and real world social interaction, and Starbucks' footprint throughout the U.S. provides an awesome platform.
The Pikachu Illustrator Card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest. Only 20 to 39 copies of this card were released, 10 of which are graded in top condition and it is unknown how many still remain with the public.

One of your ways of relaxation, and it is quite well publicised, is Pokemon Go – what has got you hooked, why do you enjoy it?
Pokemon GO got a bigger reception than we had expected.
That data is before 'Pokemon Go' came out so distracted driving could be worse now.
Since the birth of democracy in ancient Greece, modern politics has been, in essence, a competitive game. Games are often considered a less serious social activity; however, elections are some of our nation's most important political decisions and are very much game-like: we follow the scores or polls, and we root for our teams.
Perhaps, HillaryDonald Go can inject some lighthearted competition into this election season, lessen the acrimony and allow us to take a brief break from the tensions of the campaign.
The whole game has kind of turned into what I call 'Pokemon shopping,' where everybody is looking for discount shopping.
A new Mario game is likely to be popular not only among the kid/teen crowd but also among the older Millennial generation who grew up with the famous game. Apple is hoping to recreate the 'Pokemon Go' craze of the summer, which also leveraged an established gaming character and a sense of nostalgia to engage gamers from older demographics.
The added dimension of the Pokemon Go craze has undoubtedly raised awareness of the potential for augmented reality. That can only be positive for the technology.
If I feel like something fresh, I'd devour a Bulbasaur. Otherwise Pikachu is my favorite, though it requires a long walk afterwards.
The burgers' flavors have been designed to match each Pokemon's look and personality. Charmander is a bit spicy and has orange lava cheese.
The latest sales results for the 3DS handheld and Pokemon games reflect the impact that engaging audiences at scale on mobile platforms can have on adjacent markets.
Our research is showing that spend levels in five weeks in just three countries is over a quarter of a billion dollars. Start projecting that over time and across 72 countries where Pokémon Go is available and you'll see how quickly this will become a $1 billion run-rate game.
This is a turning point for brands and augmented reality.
It's still early days, but this suggests the game has staying power and is not just a flash in the pan.
We were so relieved. We were worried if those Pokémon were really going to go away in time. We consider the park a sacred place where we pray for the victims of the atomic bombings. It was unlikely the game would return to the serious site.
I can't play! I am not allowed to know how it really feels to see the little animals on my cell phone. Because we don't have it in Brazil, yet. But we are having the Olympics.
We don't need to directly tie anything to 'Go' for it to benefit our fans or the brand as a whole. In the end, the characters are the same. Pikachu in our animated series or Pikachu in our upcoming Legendary film or Pikachu in 'Go' are all the same.
We think business owners are going to be smart and do whatever they can to drive business to their store. There was a restaurant in Philadelphia that we're familiar with called The Dining Car and they've actually mentioned that they've created a new Pokemon drink related to them being a Pokestop, and they're telling us that it's helping drive more traffic into their restaurant.
This is great for Nintendo. They have an enormous amount of patents, about 4,000 patents; we think they can make an additional 300 - 800 million dollars a year of monetization of their mobile game [patents], as well as, multiplayer patents.
Nintendo is moving from a hardware supplier with games to just a game company, with some hardware. You have seen hardware products like Wii U, 3DS and [other] handheld products falling off a cliff.
We are high on AR for the long run, we think there's great things for customers and a great commercial opportunity. The number one thing is to make sure our products work well with other developers' kind of products like Pokémon, that's why you see so many iPhones in the wild chasing Pokémon.
AI makes it more and more important, as the phone becomes your assistant. In terms of AR [augmented reality] and the Pokemon phenomenon, it's incredible what has happened there.
I believe Nintendo can leverage the success of Pokemon GO, bringing the game to its consoles or introducing other characters to similar games. This is just the beginning for Nintendo.
It's important to understand what the neighborhood is like, in addition to the house.
It's a validation of the mobile strategy.
It has a knock-on effect on their traditional businesses the handheld devices and brands associated with that. There has been an uptick in sales in Pokemon games, 3DS handheld (console) and there are new Pokemon games later this year.
Of course the hard part of all of these things is monetising them, but I believe Nintendo has set a precedent and I hope they will be able to capitalise on that going forward.
What I think they have done with Pokemon GO here is establish a precedent, that a console company can enter the world of online gaming. More importantly a game that is augmented reality. So I think they have proved the business case, they have got some other great characters that may be able to make the jump from the console world into the online and hand-held gaming world.
The market has overreacted to the Nintendo statement. I believe that Pokemon GO will be material in the company's earnings given the current trends for the game.
Augmented reality is such a fun application. We decided we'd create these bags that come to life.
This year in addition to 'Pokemon Go,' which has of course been a massive phenomenon, we also have new games for Nintendo 3DS – 'Pokemon Sun' and 'Pokemon Moon' coming out later this year. It really continues that style of game play that so many people grew up with.
I think it's become even more relevant since we shot it, in the year and a half since we made the movie because while we were filming Periscope came out … and now Pokemon Go. People are becoming more and more obsessed with online games, app games and interacting with reality and fantasy.
From today you can go out and find Pokemon to your heart's content. We hope the game enables users to see the world in a new, fulfilling way. Obey the rules and have fun.
Without Lindsay in his life, he doesn't have any friends. He's not close to sister, mother, father, he lives in a computer world, and that's his link to the rest of us.

People are crazy about it now. I was there (the National Monument) myself and managed to catch some Pokemons.
We believe Apple keeps 30 per cent of Pokemon Go's revenue spent on iOS devices, suggesting upside to earnings.
There are people who have achieved a high score abroad, so I hope it gets released in Japan soon.
And then you just stand still in the middle of the road. It really is dangerous, I have to admit. Well, you walk around looking at you phone all the time, and you only see Pokemons appearing on the map and you try to catch them.
With augmented reality you are actually coming face to face with other players, so you almost might need to develop a new character a new personality as to how they might be appearing. So perhaps this new perspective can actually become a threat for some individuals who have had a personality that was developed socially within social media.
Well, you do walk around looking at your smart phone all the time. You really have to be careful crossing the streets. I caught myself once or twice almost walking into a road.
Apple has higher profit margins than the Walt Disney Company and has higher returns on capital than Facebook and, therefore, the notion that it could be valued as a hardware company just because it makes phones, we think is flawed. Those margins are only achievable because it does have these ecosystem benefits like 'Pokemon Go' to route its ecosystem to a much higher margin.
I think the point is that while Nintendo has gone up 20 billion and they do have IP risks, Apple does not. It is hedged because the next genius that makes a hit game, Apple shares on that one too. So while this one may be transitory, Apple has an option on all future hit games over the iOS platform.
There is something great about 'go in and chase this monster into your store'. The question is will it stay compelling.
We believe Pokémon Go underscores two under-appreciated investment qualities of AAPL: 1) AAPL is THE global distribution platform for mobile content winners (not just Pokémon Go), with the wealthiest consumers; and 2) We believe AAPL keeps 30 percent of Pokémon GO's revenue spent on iOS devices, suggesting upside to earnings.
The technical challenge for us is having enough server capacity on the back end to handle that number of users.
Isn't Japan the home of Pokemon? I beg them to hurry up!
I've never seen the trend of such a big company's shares changing so quickly in such a short period of time.
Over the last decade they never compromised on the software side. That's why they'll blow everybody out of the water once they start to take iOS and Android more seriously than they do now. The successes of Pokemon Go will open the eyes of executives in Kyoto. This is unprecedented.
We are very much in the game, and are taking advantage of it now.
The market is now valuing Nintendo at US$27bn in market capitalization (ex-cash & treasury shares at BV), on a par with global leaders such as EA and ATVI that respectively have 5% global video game market share vs. Nintendo's current 2%.
I hope they will now understand the power of smartphones. And as a result, I hope this means there is a whole change in strategy.
It's been wonderful to be able to combine our philosophy for these kinds of games with the powerful affinity that people have for Pokemon.

With Pokemon GO, you are seeing it as bypassing a lot of digital (marketing) channels that the brick and mortar shops have been relying on for the past few years. There hasn't been a geolocation social platform that can lure so many people all at once.
The danger in dealing with this game is that it involves the user photographing areas nearby with ... smart phones which transfer the pictures of the sites to third parties. The interior ministry has informed security men to show zero tolerance to anyone approaching such prohibited sites, deliberately or not.
When you look at the way it's becoming a social phenomenon in the U.S., the rally is understandable even though it's not clear yet how much it will boost profits. People still remember the time when the Wii and the DS became a hit and boosted Nintendo's shares.
I really looked forward to playing the Pokemon artificial reality game since they first announced it. I really liked Pokemon as a kid.
The app may be free, but going over your data plan could cost you bigtime.
If you are playing Po-Go instead of going to see a movie or paying for some other type of entertainment, it may be an even swap. But keep track of what you're spending in real money on PokeCoins. It can add up quickly.
In our view, the new free-to-play [augmented reality] gaming app has broad implications for retail as it addresses declining mall traffic, plus emerging trends toward social experience and health [and] wellness.
With the millennials and open office space, I wouldn't be surprised if we see advertising office space as a Pokemon gym now.
I think that sellers might be opposed to advertising 'Pokemon Go' in their listings ultimately because – let's admit – it is a little bit childish and not necessarily highbrow, and if you're going for a certain look or aesthetic, a theme such as sophistication, it's ultimately not going to fit in with that.
I think right now it has more than a novel feeling to it. I don't think people are expecting it to move the needle on any point.
This is just the beginning to be honest.
The former Nazi German death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau is not only a museum today, it is above all a place of remembrance, a place where people come not only to find out about history, but they come for moments of meditation, reflection, often for prayer. It is inconceivable that we should treat this place as a place for games or to have fun.
The vulnerability from 'Pokemon Go' is due to the fact that Nintendo didn't have a global release of the game.
Cause we're gonna have a lot of jobs. Jobs from building infrastructure to coding, creating new apps. I don't know who created Pokémon Go, but I'm trying to figure out we get them to Pokémon Go to the polls.
People born in the 1980s and 90s, they grew up with this. It's approachable and reassuring and that's whyit's gone from zero to millions of users in just a few days. I see McDonald's, Home Depot (NYSE:HD), national brands playing into the culture.
Let's see how popular it is when it starts raining and fall comes around. Will people still be walking around in the snow chasing Pokemon? ... Just like every other mobile game, it will have to face the retention figures after 7, 30 and 90 days. Chances are we are looking at the mobile games' equivalent of a summer hit song rather than a revolution in the mobile game monarchy.
It isn't a money maker [for Nintendo].
I didn't know what was going on. The last time I heard about Pokemon was back in the '90s.
It's a dumb game, really, really stupid.
I'm not sure how he got back there, but it was clear what he was doing. He was playing a Pokemon game with his phone up in the air.
Be careful where you chase these Pokemon – or whatever it is you chase – because we have seen issues in other places with people going onto private property where a property owner didn't want them on there.
I think people may see helicopter money as a kind of ultimate medical solution. If all else fails, you go for helicopter money.
Helicopter money is a powerful tool which will work if adopted.
I am concerned about the extent to which Niantic may be unnecessarily collecting, using, and sharing a wide range of users' personal information without their appropriate consent. As the augmented reality market evolves, I ask that you provide greater clarity on how Niantic is addressing issues of user privacy and security, particularly that of its younger players.
It created great impromptu conversations where people were coming in and just hanging out.
I've got a lot of my friends hooked up that haven't played Pokemon before, I've got them hooked up on it now.
I think it's fantastic to see these augmented reality applications getting built, because the best thing that can happen when you're creating a new category is for applications that are these killer apps, whether it be game or in the industrial scenario, to get invested in.
No, I'm not saying that when oil rallies it will no longer help the bulls, because it will. I'm not saying that the super-freaking strong dollar can't go any higher; if the Fed raises rates, it will.
If I were General Mills, I would be tempted to one-up Danone for WhiteWave, if only to get the French company to pay more for the darned thing because they're vicious competitors.
If you ask me, it's about time.
I have no idea if it will work, but for anyone willing to help #PokemonGO players engage with #NatHist, I'll be using # PokeBlitz. Join in!
I'm not a great gamer, so I can't really say how much that's worth – but the industrial applications of this are going to be billions of dollars of productivity.
I think it creates a lot of potential excitement for NX. It's crazy the amount of attention this game has gotten. And attention creates awareness. It gets people thinking about Nintendo and there are ancillary benefits for people thinking about the company's IP. It's a positive because it creates curiosity. And Nintendo has had success in leveraging handheld consoles – like the DS – and creating interest in its consoles historically.
Now if we were talking about its next generation console becoming the core platform for gamers, then that would be something to get excited about -- but at the moment, this alone is not enough.
I just wanted to be able to stop quickly if there were any Pokemons nearby to catch. I don't think the company is really at fault.
It doesn't count as walking if you're going more than 20 miles per hour, so that's good, I guess.
