On Pokemon, Google and April Fools


I love the Pokemon game! So when Google launched their Google Pokemon April Fool’s Game I wasted no time hunting pokemons over google maps in my Droid.

My first catch was a Rotom


Next was Dragonite
Google Pokemon Challenge

And my first high profile pokemon was Bulbasaur

For the first ten to twenty or so pokemons, I usually caught them near Google offices worldwide (Googleplex in Mountain View, Google offices in Ireland, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, etc).
