How much data does Pokemon Go use for 1 hour?

How many megabytes are in a gigabyte

Data consumption is one of the things that most concerns mobile users, especially those who have a reduced plan that basically allows them to use social networks and WhatsApp plus only 1 GB of navigation.

According to the CEO of T-Mobile USA, one of the most important operators in the United States, since Pokémon Go was launched, users have started to spend up to 4 times more data than their usual consumption; good news for operators and not so much for players.

However, there is no need to be alarmed, the game does not really consume excessive data, as it has already been proven that on average Pokémon GO consumes between 10 MB and 12 MB per hour, a really low figure but that should be controlled to avoid spending the entire plan in a very short time.

The data consumption generated by Pokémon Go varies primarily depending on how the game is used. Generally speaking, however, all the interaction with game elements such as PokéStops, gyms and capturing different Pokémons consumes a lot of data.

If we were to continue with the calculations, if we were to consider playing the game for a whole month, eight hours a day, we would consume 750 MB in total, which is less than the amount contemplated in most standard data tariffs. In fact, the figure of 3 MB per day does not correspond to an alarming data consumption. Pokémon Go consumes comparatively much more battery than data.

There are some tricks to reduce the data consumption caused by the use of Pokemon Go. In this regard, it may be advisable to disable augmented reality, not to zoom in constantly or to tap only as much as necessary on the PokéStops.

Likewise, it is effective to activate the application’s battery saving mode. In this way, every time we go walking and we are not using the game, the screen will turn off immediately.  Another useful tip may be to disable the camera in capture mode, since this is one of the functions of cell phones that consumes more battery.

Pokémon GO is a location-based augmented reality video game developed by Niantic[1][2] for iOS and Android devices. It is a free-to-play video game but contains microtransactions.[3] The game involves searching for and capturing characters from the Pokémon saga hidden in real-world locations and battling with them, which involves physically moving around city streets to progress. The application involves an element of social interaction, as it promotes physical meetings of users in different locations of their towns and forests among others.

The video game requires the player to walk the streets of their city to discover all kinds of Pokémon, whose different species appear depending on the area visited. The real-world streets are represented in Pokémon GO in the form of a map, which shows where the player is located. In addition, Pokémon GO maps integrate different Pokeparadas (Pokéstops) that allow you to discover museums, art installations, monuments, and historical sites, among others.[4]
