Pokémon GO was released by Niantic in July 2016 and the same developer in association with WB developed another game from the same genre named “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” and released it in June 2019. This new game managed to create a stir up as it got more than four lakh downloads within 24 hours and also topped the Apple Store US charts. Wizards Unite is also based on the same AR concept as the Pokémon GO but it also presents the Harry Potter’s magical and muggle world elements in the game. When a player starts to play the game he feels both of the games quite similar, and feels the Harry Potter games as the skinned version of Pokémon GO. But it is not the reality, below the comparison between these two games have been done:

Inns in the Wizards Unite has been derived from the Pokestops and Porkeys are also similar to Eggs Pokémon GO.
