It looks like Google is starting their April fools jokes a bit early this year with their first one being the Pokemon Challenge, trying to find Google Maps potential hires through a global Pokemon challenge. This is an obvious April Fools joke, but the amount of effort put into it definitely makes it much more interesting and alluring.
