Gotta Cache 'em All!

Google, with their rich April Fools tradition, has struck again for 2014 with an augmented reality, geocache-ish playground to find Pokemon. More to the point...

[It] lets you go out into the world and catch "real" Pokémon through you phone's camera. That's the April Fool's joke. But since this is Google, it doesn't just end with the video - as of right now, Google Maps on Android and iOS is actually populated with Pokémon creatures all over the world. Zoom in to major cities and you'll see Nintendo's little critters hanging out on the standard map view (you have to zoom in really far). Some places, like the Google headquarters, also have pixelated buildings overlaid on the map.

Pretty damn awesome, Google. Click here to learn more and watch the video. It's super effective!
