From Pokemon-inspired business promotions to a social-media driven date night in Tempe, Pokemon Go has taken off across the Valley.

Now we know how obsessed Phoenix is with Pokemon compared to the rest of the country.

RedFin, a real state company, compared Google searches and trends related to Pokemon across the United States, to come up with the "10 Cities With The Most Pokemon Go Fans."

According to the results, Phoenix ranks sixth with our most popular search word being...Pokemon.

San Antonio, Texas, topped the list followed by San Jose and Los Angeles. San Antonio's most searched words were "Blastoise" and "Bulbasaur" and San Jose's was "Charizard." Los Angeles searched for Blastoise the most, according to the report.

What is interesting about the list is that no cities in the middle of the country nor along the East Coast made the list.
