Pokémon fans are tickled pink with Google Maps’ April Fool’s Day gag. The dream about being recruited by Google to catch ’em all and hunt down Pokémon is made ‘real’ by our venerable overlords at Google. Will you be the very best, that no one ever was?
They even shot a funny spoof ad and you can find the video below. If your Google Maps app on your Android phone or your iPhone is updated, head on over to your search bar and press start. Your mission to hunt down every Pokémon is open until 2:00 AM of April 2, 2014.
If you ever wanted to work for Google, well.. This won’t get you any closer. But hey, bragging rights!
