Google Celebrates April Fool’s Day by Bringing Pokemon to Android via Google Maps. Seriously.

Mar 31, 2014

Granted, April Fool’s Day means anything is possible, but Google has decided to up the ante by bringing Nintendo’s Pokemon to Google Maps. Really. Get the latest version of Google Maps from Google Play, go to the search bar and choose “Press Start.” Then, look around the Mountain View, CA area for Pokemon on the map to collect them. Catch ’em all but do so quickly, because this is sure to go away not soon after April Fool’s Day ends.
