Locations of 75 Pokemon on Google Maps! Catch the rest with Culture Toronto!


In case you haven't heard, Google has unleashed 150 Pokemon into Google maps for you to catch! Simply load up Google Maps on your android or iphone, click into search and start looking. You'll see a bunch of little monsters on the map right outside the "Pokemon lab" conveniently located near Google's headquarters.  Click them and catch them!

The premise seems easy enough; look around the game map (because apparently Google is a game with Easter eggs now), find the Pokemon and add them to your Pokedex, like in the hit titles from Nintendo. Of course, while searching you'll remember how hard it is to find your anything you need desperately on Google maps, and realize that you have to zoom in pretty close to even see the monsters, and that the map is literally the size of the world.  You could scroll around Google maps zoomed in coast to coast but that is pretty much the dumbest way to go about it and luckily, Google hasn't been that cruel with where they've hid them. You'll have to use the most versatile weapon in your Pokemon catching arsenal this time around: Google itself!

How to find Google's 150 Pokemon


How to find Google's 150 Pokemon


Our Pokemon hunting strategy began with lists of the world's countries. When we found very little Pokemon, we checked the world's cities, and then the 7 wonders of the world. You'll need to become the truest of detectives. Who would Google be working with on this? Nintendo! We found at least one at Nintendo's Japan location. And then of course there's the 8th wonders, new wonders of the world, famous landmarks (e.g. St.Basil's Cathedral where Jolteon can be found), the natural phenomenons (e.g. niagara falls) and awe-inspiring anomalies in general. For example, you'll find Pokemon at the hottest volcano, the highest mountain, and the tallest building.

 

Here's the first 75 we caught and where to find them!

The World's Pokedex!


We (no longer) need your help to catch the remaining Pokemon!

Here's our (old) Pokedex. In the comments below, if you know either the number, name and/or location of any Pokemon we're missing, let everybody know! We did it first but you can do it second!

GOOD LUCK!

 

Did you catch em all yet?!
