Pokemon Go Easter event isn't the only reason fans are happy
Pokemon Go developer Niantic will be pleased to hear the results of a brand new study.
Turns out the Pokemon Go Easter event isn't the only thing making fans happy.
A study carried out by the University of Wisconsin has shown that Pokemon Go makes players lead positive and satisfactory lives.
Fans are often exercising when playing the app, and are experiencing positive emotions linked with feelings of nostalgia.
"For the most part, the Pokemon Go players said more about positive things that were making them feel their life was more worthwhile, more satisfactory, and making them more resilient," explained researcher James Alex Bonus.
"The more people were playing, the more they were engaging in behaviours that reflected making new connections – making Facebook friends, introducing themselves to someone new, exchanging phone numbers with someone, or spending more time with old friends and learning new things about them," he added.
Bonus suggested that more organisations should look to this medium as a way of improving life experiences.
