The cloud-based service from The Pokemon Company, Pokemon Home, was downloaded over 1.3 million times worldwide on mobile in its first week available, according to research firm Sensor Tower.

444,000 of the downloads or about 34 percent of the total installs were in the US, followed by Japan with 299,000 downloads (23%). Great Britain saw 74,000 downloads, Germany 63,000 downloads, and France 53,000 downloads. 

Pokemon Home has the potential to bring in a lot of money as it has three paid subscription plans for $2.99, $4.99 and $15.99. Sensor Tower estimates it brought in $1.8 million in user spending in the first week. The US accounted for 40.8 percent of the revenue, followed by Japan with 35.3 percent.
