The app has already been downloaded over 100 million times and has crossed revenue of $250 million.

Pokemon GO is built on Niantic’s Real World Gaming Platform and uses real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokemon. Gamers can catch more than a hundred species of Pokemon as you explore your surroundings. While it is great to be able to find Pokemon in the real world, it can also be dangerous to gamers who are not paying attention to their surroundings. There have been reports of injuries and government authorities around the world are asking gamers to use caution and in some cases blocking entry to public areas in fear of accidents.

However Kyocera did not have Pokemon GO in its design considerations. DuraForce PRO was designed by Kyocera to be rugged to provide businesses and consumers with a dependable smartphone that can withstand the harshest environments and mishap.
