Google's April Fools: Google Maps Pokemon Challenge
Very cool, just noticed the Poke ball in the app.
Works on android and iOS Google maps app.
Click on the search box. There will be a pokeball and says press start.
The video is a joke but you can go on Google maps app and "catch" Pokemon.
Tap a Pokémon and you can "catch" it, adding it to your own personal Pokedex (a monster catalog from the game series). "Catching" a Pokémon will populate your Pokedex with a portrait, game-accurate statistics, and flavor text. Pokémon fans, feel free to go completely nuts.
There are 150 Pokémon that can be caught, though we're seeing some of them that aren't from the original Red/Blue/Yellow generations. You can get back to your Pokedex by tapping the Search field while it's empty. The location of each Pokémon is not searchable, but they're persistent, showing up in the same places for each user. That means it should be possible for players to work together and catalog locations for each Pokémon. That's right - you can catch 'em all. If you can't find a Pokémon near you location, search for "Googleplex" and zoom in. There are a bunch of them just waiting to be caught.
I've found them around landmarks- CN Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Eiffel Tower, 1 Infinite Loop
All over the ship, dancing through the wreckage of the Pfhor computer core, DURANDAL WAS LAUGHING
Here is the toil of that house, and the inextricable wandering
