Pokémon Brings Hordes of Players Online

Users logging onto Nintendo’s Wi-Fi connection service have more than doubled since the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

With Wi-Fi activity reaching as high as 800,000 users at one time, Wi-Fi use has especially increased in the US.

One third of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl owners have played their games online as opposed to Japan which only sees 64,000 of its 5 million users online.

The top Pokémon game for the online service is Pokémon Diamond by almost 100,000 users.
