Yelp is getting in on the Pokémon Go action, adding a new filter that will let users discover restaurants and other businesses located near PokéStops to make it easier to find new Pokémon and other bonuses.

Added via an over-the-air update going out today, Yelp's new Pokémon filter is available at the top of the app when searching for a venue to visit, right alongside other filters like "Good for Lunch," "Price," and "Open Now."


Searching for locations by PokéStop is available on Yelp for the desktop and in Yelp's mobile apps, including its iOS app. Yelp is also asking customers to help identify businesses that have a PokéStop located nearby by checking in.
In order to leave no PokéStop unturned, we need your help! To identify a business that's in the vicinity of a PokéStop, check-in to that location on Yelp and answer a quick question to let fellow Yelpers and trainers know that this is the place they want to be. In just the past 24 hours, Yelpers have already identified thousands of PokéStops! With your help, we'll become Pokémon masters in no time.
Yelp's new PokéStop feature is available in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Yelp can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Nice to see Pokémon and Nintendo being relevant again :)

Help! I'm being robbed at gun point behind McDonalds while out chasing Pokemon. But on a positive note, 5 stars for this restaurant for having good street lighting.

Think I'll stay with Geocaching. Yes, I know, so yesterday, but I'm just not really into games. Good for those that enjoy it. This could get too commercialized.
