April Fool's has come early, with an update for Google's Maps application for both Android and iOS that's geared towards finding their next big hire: Pokémon Master.
While we've been been collecting some of our favorite April Fool's Day Pranks to pull on your friends, co-workers, and family members, but Google is taking it to new levels this year with their Pokémon Challenge.
"Dozens of wild Pokémon have taken up residence on streets, amidst forests and atop mountains throughout Google Maps."
You'll start off near the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, but from there the exploring is left up to you. See a Pokémon? Grab it by placing a pin, then capture it by tapping "Catch".
Either dismiss the notification to keep going, or hit "View Pokédex" to check out your progress.
If you've been waiting for you chance to work for the big G, here is it.
Before the job becomes available, it seems there is an internal Google battle that must first be waged.
Be careful out there...happy hunting! And check out our other (ahem) useful posts for the coming 48 hours.
