Google Seeks Pokémon Master for Google Maps Team

| Cool Stuff Found

OK, Pokémon Masters, here's your chance to put what those doubting Thomases so maliciously characterized as your "misspent youth." Google, it seems, is looking for a Pokémon Master to join its Google Maps team. Unrelated (we're just sure), it's already April 1st in Australia. In any event, Tatsuo Nomura, "Advanced Pokémon Trainer" for Google, made a blog post for the company promoting the Pokémon Challenge for Google Maps in conjunction with Nintendo. To be clear, this is an April Fool's prank, but it involves a real game that has been hidden inside Google Maps for iOS and Android. There's a 150 Pokémon hidden within the map, and you have until April 2nd to catch 'em all.
