Google Maps Pokémon April Fools Challenge

Today is, of course, April Fools’ Day, and yet again Google has another little easter egg, which is in the mobile version of google maps.

Simply update/download the Google Maps app on your iOS or Android device, and then tap the search bar, then tap “begin my Pokémon Journey”. This will place you at a lab, and from there, if you want to be the very best, you’ll have to catch all 150 Pokémon (hand-picked by Google, from several generations). But beware! It will take a lot of exploring the world! Once you find a pokémon, tap it and underneath the search bar select the “catch” button on the new bar.

Here’s proof that I’ve done it:

To get you guys inspired, here’s a little song:

I wanna be the very best,
That no one ever was.
To catch them is my real test,
To train them is my cause.

I will travel across the world,
Searching far and wide.
Each Pokémon to understand
The power that’s inside

Pokémon, (gotta catch them all) its you and me
I know its my destiny
Pokémon, oh, you’re my best friend
In a world we must defend

Pokémon, (gotta catch them all) a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I’ll teach you
Po-ké-mon, gotta catch ’em all

Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place

Come with me, the time is right
There’s no better team
Arm in arm we’ll win the fight
It’s always been our dream

Pokémon!

(Gotta catch ’em all)

It’s you and me
I know it’s my destiny

Pokémon!

Oh, you’re my best friend,
In a world we must defend.

Pokémon!

A heart so true.
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me and I’ll teach you.

Pokémon!

(Gotta catch ’em all)
(Gotta catch ’em all)
(Gotta catch ’em all)
(Gotta catch ’em all)
(Gotta catch ’em all)

Yeah!

Pokémon!

It’s you and me
I know it’s my destiny

Pokémon!

Oh, you’re my best friend,
In a world we must defend.

Pokémon!

A heart so true.
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me and I’ll teach you.

Pokémon!

So now that you’ve got the theme stuck in your head, tell us, have you done it yet? Are you a POKÉMON MASTER?
