A big YouTuber who rarely posts Pokémon GO videos nabs the #1 rank, while veteran trainers have their eyes glued to E3.
Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top Pokémon GO YouTubersby popularity and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the period ending 6/4. For details on our ranking system, please see the bottom of the article.
Plenty of exciting Pokémon game news came out of E3, and it appears that Holly was around the area hunting Unowns. She recently moved from the east coast to Las Vegas and is rooming with two other Pokémon GO players. Watch this video to learn why she moved, or check out the video below to watch her talk about this year's Pokémon GO Fest.
PokeGirl7, AKA Caitlyn, is a newcomer to our rankings. She's been uploading Pokémon GO videos for a year and a half. Like many ranked creators, on Twitter she's been expressing her excitement over the games being announced at E3. Watch the video below to see her hatch some eggs and catch some Pokémon!
FLW Videos is the only ranked creator who regularly makes Top 5 / Top 10 videos. This YouTuber recently crossed 6 million total video views. Congrats on the milestone! At his current pace, FLW should reach 20k subscribers sometime in July. Check out the video below to watch him count down 5 Pokémon that should be more powerful in Pokémon GO.
As of writing, Reversal is less than 20 YouTube uploads away from reaching 2,000 total videos on his channel. It may be a while before he reaches this milestone, as he recently announced that he'll be taking a break. Check out this tweet or this video to hear his explanation. We hope he enjoys his time off and comes back refreshed! Watch Reversal's most recent Pokémon GO upload below.
Raid and gym battle expert Poké AK averages 2-3 uploads per day. We've noticed that he's begun to commentate over more of his videos. We like the new approach! Poké AK is approaching 100k subscribers on YouTube. He should comfortably reach this milestone during the summer. Poké AK's most popular upload of the current period is a Kyogre raid video. Check it out below!
This edition marks HardCorllector's second ranked appearance. A YouTuber who collects toys and cards, his videos frequently feature his young son Ethan and occasionally other family members. HardCorllector's name is a play on the phrase "hardcore collector." Check out his most recent Pokémon GO upload below.
ProdigiesNation recently showed off his newly-purchased Nintendo Switch. Given the timing of his purchase, we presume it was in anticipation of the Pokémon Let's Go news that came out of E3. Fun fact: ProdigiesNation's first Pokémon GO YouTube video was uploaded nearly two years ago. Check out the video below to watch him show off his impressive shiny Pokémon collection. Consider us jealous!
Trainer Tips, aka Nick, has noticed increased interest in Pokémon GO following the recent updates and news coming out of E3. He jokingly tweeted this observation about the game's popularity. Check out the video below to see Nick's primer for returning players who recently re-downloaded the game. We'd also like to congratulate him on reaching 700k YouTube subscribers!
Like ProdigiesNation, MYSTIC7 recently purchased a Nintendo Switch. It's good timing, considering the Pokémon Let's Go news that came out of E3. MYSTIC7 spent a good chunk of the past month in Italy, seeing the sights and catching Pokémon. Watch the video below to see him hunt for Pokémon in Rome!
SSundee's back! We last profiled him in August 2017, when he appeared in our "Top Clash Royale YouTubers" series. Since then, he's amassed an additional 650 million video views. Incredible! SSundee is also closing in on 9 million subscribers. While he mostly plays Minecraft and Fortnite, we're happy to see SSundee still making vids for Pokémon GO. Check him out below!

For a more detailed breakdown of the top content creators in this edition, take a look at the table below. Click the table to enlarge.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of the top 20 Pokémon GO YouTubers (in the English language) since last edition based on the views generated by their top Pokémon GO video upload during the relevant period. The YouTube list is sourced from YouTube search. Creators on the list are awarded 0-100 points in each of 2 categories: views of new Pokémon GO YouTube videos and new YouTube subscribers. The data from the 2 categories is sourced from YouTube and Social Blade (socialblade.com). Points are calculated according to the following steps:
(1) For each category, total points available are calculated by multiplying 100 by a fraction: the total number of creators active on the relevant platform (numerator) divided by the total number of creators on the list (denominator). 'Active' in the New YouTube Subscribers category is defined as having uploaded at least 1 video of the tracked game during the current period AND havinggenerated 100 or more subscribers. 'Active' in the New YouTube Views category is defined as having uploaded at least 1 video of the tracked game during the current period. For example, if 90% of creators generated 100 or more YouTube subscribers, then 90 points are available in the New YouTube Subscribers category.
(2) Points calculated from each of the 2 categories in step (1) are then totaled up to determine the creator's final score.
Creators will be excluded from the current period’s rankings if at least one of their videos uploaded during the current period is found to:
(1) Contain a video description that could mislead viewers into believing that a new gameplay element has already been, will be, or could be added to the game, and which contains any hacked gameplay footage or images.
(2) Contain a video description that could mislead viewers into believing that a new gameplay element has already been or will be added to the game, when such assertion is untrue or simply rumor/speculation.
NOTE: For clarity, creators will be found in violation of this condition if a video description simply adds a question mark to the end of any such assertion. This is because the use of a question mark may not provide viewers with sufficient clarity that the assertion is rumor/speculation.
(3) Contain information about how to use game hacks or cheats that violate a game’s Terms of Service.
We appreciate your help! If you believe that one of the creators featured in a post has violated a condition outlined above, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include a link to the relevant video. We will investigate the matter as soon as possible.
