Tips to Catch All the Pokemon in Google’s April Fools Map Quest!

Happy April Fools Day, everyone! ¬†In case anyone hasn’t noticed yet, Google has scattered Pokemon all over the world through its Google Maps app ecosystem to celebrate today’s foolery. ¬†I am officially obsessed with catching them all! ¬†(BTW, this awesome title image comes from ezeqquiel on Deviantart!)

Here are some spoiler-free tips to help you find them:

1. ¬†Go to the “SEARCH” bar in your Google Maps app (iPhone or Android) and click on “Return to Pokemon Lab” – this will take you to Google’s Mountain View HQ and there are several Pokemon scattered around to get started!

Once you find a Pokemon, all you have to do is click on them and tap the Pokeball in the corner to “catch” them. ¬†You can view your Pokedex to see your progress! ¬†Good luck!
