As an April Fools Day prank, Google used Google Maps to place pretend Pokemon all over the world. The company later revealed that it was rewarding people who managed to find all 150 (or 151, don’t forget Mew) pocket monsters with a special gift. A tech superpower with endless resources, what might Google be sending this skilled group of individuals? Google Play credit? A free Nexus phone or tablet? Tickets to I/O? What could it be? To congratulate people who managed to wrangle the digital beasts, Mountain View has issued a letter certifying their success, along with a set of business cards labeling them as a “Pokemon Master” at Google Inc.
The package includes a total of 10 business cards, so winners will probably want to use them sparingly. While we applaud the company for being creative with its gag, last time we checked, Pokemon trainers earned badges instead of business cards? However, on the brighter side of things, members of this ambitious group now have a new entry for their respective resumes.
