Google Maps adds ability to capture Pokémon

General News — 01 April, 2014

The Google Maps app for iOS and Android has added a new feature that allows you to hone your Pokémon-capturing abilities. At Google, they value employees who are risk-taking and detail-oriented, have deep technical knowledge, and can navigate through tall grass to capture wild creatures.

To become a Pokémon Master, simply load up the app (note: it's not available on the website), tap Search then Press Start. The game begins at the CERN scientific research center and many Pokémon can be found nearby, but there are Pokémon all over the world from Tokyo to Paris to New York.

Check out the video below, then go out there and catch them all!

Note: this was an April Fools joke by Google.
