What in the WWW?: Gotta catch ’em all on Google Maps


Watch your back, Ash, Google Maps users can now catch Pokemon, too.

Google released a new update to the popular map application that allows users to catch 150 Pokemon as an April Fools’ joke.

The “Pokemon Challenge” was announced by a video advertising for a new “Pokemon Master” position at the company.

To join in on the fun you’ll need to update the application on your iOS or Android device. Tap the search bar and press “start.” Your quest begins in Palo Alto, Calif., at Google headquarters and expands from there.
