Catching Pokemon on Google Maps is a reality now

Google has been known to cook up some great April Fool’s Joke in recent years. I personally think this year they’ve outdone themselves. Tapping into our nostalgia and visceral desire to collect things, Google invested their cutting edge augmented reality technology that enables aspiring trainers to catch… Pokémon.

Yes, this is a real thing you can do right out on your mobile devices through Google map’s latest update. What’s more, Google has jokingly opened a new job position for the role Pokémon Master.

So what are you waiting for? Go catch’em all!
