The trend extends further, with downloads, engagement, and time spent also all on the decline, according to data from Sensor Tower, SurveyMonkey, and Apptopia.

Meanwhile, developer Niantic is about to launch version 0.35.0 for Android and 1.5.0 for iOS, and says it's "working hard on several new and exciting features to come in the future of Pokémon Go." Whether said features will improve the game's longevity or not, only time will tell.
