Pokénomics Sees Regional Differences Among Players

As a preferred provider of labor market data, Chmura Economics & Analytics set out to answer this question: “If Pokémon were real, which U.S. metropolitan areas would be best for Pokémon Trainers?” Chmura created the following five industries that have employees best equipped to support players of Pokémon: 1. Trainers, 2. Gyms, 3. Veterinarians (Healers or Pokémon Centers), 4. Selected retail shops (or Poke Mart), and 5. Teachers (Professors). Chmura’s CEO and Chief Economist, Dr. Christine Chmura, said “If Pokémon were real, trainers would be most successful in regions with the greatest concentration of people with the skills to help them become masters.”
