Google’s April Fools Joke: Pokemon On Google Maps

The good: This Google Maps Pokemon Challenge video, depicting adventurers from all walks of life using their Maps app to encounter augmented reality-based Pokemon around the planet. Not a first for Google.

The bad: It’s all just an April Fool’s joke, according to The Verge.

The consolation prize: You can sorta catch Pokemon using Google maps. Just zoom in, play around with the maps enough and you’ll find 150 of the animated critters waiting to be captured. Not that I’d personally be looking for anybody but Charizard, but variety is cool.

So, hats off, Google. You definitely know what attracts internet people. Imagine that!
