"Applicants must explore all types of terrain with Google Maps on their iPhone or Android to find each and every one of the wild Pokemon," an ad for Google said.
You might remember that little ad from Google a few years ago. The tech giant rolled that out in 2014 as part of an April Fools' Day joke ... or so we thought.
Yes, at the time, you could kinda interact with and catch Pokemon using Google Maps, but it wasn't quite like the ad suggested.
