Google April Fools': Pokemon Challenge

So I'm sure at this point you've all seen this year's Google April Fools Prank

That being said, if you're like me after reading the announcement you immediately took to Google Maps and started scouring the world for Pokemon, only to find that they're not as plentiful as one would hope. At this point I've caught 48/150 Pokemon and still counting. My strategy has been focusing on coasting areas and major cities (i.e. capitals and such). Below are a couple Google Maps links that should help you along your journey (assuming the Pokemon locations are static across all users' experiences). Note: Remember to open these links on your mobile device in order to view them through the mobile Google Maps app.

Galapagos National Park (Pokemon Lab): Make sure you really scan the whole island coast as this area is rich

Googleplex (Mountainview, CA): This is the main Google headquarters and quite a few Pokemon are hiding in the greater city if you look

A few cities of note to search are New York, London, Dublin, San Francisco, and the big island of Hawaii. Post below if you found any good sources.

Gotta catch 'em all! 


I would give credit to an individual, but it appears to be a group effort! The following is an open Google Doc with what appears to be locations of sightings of almost all the 150 Pokemon:
