Pokemon Master at Google

Google has announced today that they are now accepting a new type of position at their growing company. The title is Pokemon master, a role that can obviously only be filled by the best of the best. Starting today through the 2nd you can use the augmented reality feature added to your Google Maps application to collect all 150 Pokemon around the world. You will of course have to act fast because there are going to be many competitors for this position.

Google has a history with April Fools since 2000 releasing several different ridiculous “technology innovations”. This year you can become a Pokemon master but in the past it was “Gmail Blue” or “Google Scent”. The jokes are usually extremely well put together and good for a laugh.

While not the original 150 from the game’s initial installments, Red and Blue, the collection of Pokemon seemingly spans the entire globe. Naturally, I though to jump over to Tokyo, Japan and was happy to scroll over the series’ flagship Pokemon.

Even though it is of course a fake position it is still a silly title and I enjoy a good laugh.

Google gave its fake campaign a 2 p.m. PT, April 2 deadline for anyone interested in catching them all. While there’s sure to be some type of reward involved, don’t hold your breath for the chances of it being a job at the search giant.
