Google have just announced that for one day only (April 1st) you can travel around the world on Google Maps and catch up to 150 Pokémon comprising of both old and new characters. All you have to do is go to Google Maps, click the search bar and click start so be transported to your nearest ‘Pokémon Lab’. From there, you must search around the world, in many of it’s famous locations (hint: Google HQ’s in different cities are good starting points) until you find all 150!


Have you got what it takes? We’ve found them all already and think it’s time we head outside for a nice healthy dose of fresh air! You can do all of this from your smartphone too! Happy hunting and and ‘Gotta Catch’em All’


P.S. This is a clever and fully functioning April Fool’s joke.
