People are getting back into it thanks to Let's Go Eevee and Let's Go Pikachu, but yeah, it is nowhere near its popularity in 2016.
The recent pokemon games are growing the pokemon community with its impressive graphics on the switch.
Pokemon Go is good in the aspect of it fulfills it's purpose as a mobile game. It is something to feed your attention for a few minutes while you are waiting for something. It's great when you live in an area with a lot of pokestops. I keep it on my phone and go on it when I am waiting for things. For example, when the restaurant we are going to has a 15 minute wait for a table. Might as well whip out your phone and do pokemon go for a few minutes.*also you need to add the Pokemon Home thing for Pokemon SwSh but that kinda sucks in my opinion. You basically have to pay if you aren't transfering SwSh compatible pokemon at a time.
