It's really quite depressing that some people thrive on drama, so much so they feel the need to manufacture it. Such is the case for one user in the Pokemon GO Reddit community, who posted a supposed email from Niantic Labs' customer support stating that the Apple Watch version of the popular game had been "shelved". Fortunately, the developer was quick to debunk the rumour, calling the Reddit email a fake.


Originally I had "mobile gaming" instead of "the world" in the headline, but realised Niantic's augmented reality game has busted well and truly free of its humble silicon confines. No, it's pretty much a global phenomenon at this stage. But how much so? Two brave souls have attempted to quantify Pokemon GO's effect on the planet.
