Description

On April Fools' Day 2014, Google teamed up with Pokémon for an event where players catch Pokémon in real-world locations. The game was playable through the Google Maps application on mobile devices for one day only. Players started out at a Pokémon Lab in one of five locations around the world. The player must then scroll around the world looking for Pokémon icons. Pokémon are caught by tapping their icon. 150 Pokémon are initially available, 25 from each of the 6 Generations. Each specific Pokémon is always found in at least one specific location (for example, Scraggy can be found in Shanghai, China and Alcatraz Island, California, USA). After all these Pokémon are caught, Mew can be found roaming random locations around the world, most commonly found around the Amazon River.

Players who caught all 151 Pokémon got congratulatory letters and Pokémon Master business cards from Google the following June.
