Pokémon has been named as the most mentioned video game on Twitter during 2017 within a blog post on Twitter. The news comes as Twitter celebrates 218 million tweets relating to video games last year.
Here are the top-10 most-mentioned video games on Twitter globally, led by @Pokemon, which had 45 million mentions in 2017:
1 Pokemon (@Pokemon)
2 Fate/Grand Order (@fgoproject)
3 Monster Strike (@MStrikeOfficial)
4 Splatoon (@SplatoonJP)
5 Ensemble Stars (@ensemble_stars)
6 Minecraft (@Minecraft)
7 Granblue Fantasy (@GranblueUSA)
8 Dragon Quest (@DragonQuest)
9 Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch)
10 Tap Tap Fish (@taptapfish)
Interestingly, Pokémon has been mentioned more than Overwatch; a game that significantly dominated 2017 within gaming communities. It also outranks Minecraft, arguably one of the most well-known PC games of all time.
With the popularity of Pokémon GO, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, and the news of a new Nintendo Switch Pokémon game in the works, it is no wonder Pokémon is on everyone’s minds!
