Catch Pokemon on Google Maps

For this year's April Fool's day joke, Google has gone the extra mile. If you have a smart phone (either Android or iOS), then click update now on your Google Maps app, and get ready to search the globe for Pokemon! Yes that's right, you can now catch 150 of the Pokemon in the real world by simply finding them, clicking on them, and clicking catch. According to Google the first person who catches them all will be given a job at Google, but there's about a 99.999999999999% chance that is fake. Even so, the "mini game" of sorts is there for all to play, so make sure you check it out when you get the chance. According to the "contest" we have until the second of April to catch them all, but if that means the app will revert to its original form or not is yet to be seen. Although this is just a fun little update, Google is known to keep most of their April Fools Day pranks/jokes, so who's to say that we won't be able to play this again in the future? Only time will tell.
