The Pokémon Challenge lets people compete to become their next employee or Pokemon Master.

For April Fools, Google released a fake augmented reality game that uses Google Maps to help people find 150 different Pokemon in various real-world locations and compete to become a member of the Google team as the Pokemon Master.

On Monday the company launched a video to promote the Google Maps Pokemon Challenge, which they're calling a training tool to help people improve their skills in finding and capturing Pokemon.

In a blog post, the company explained that being a Pokemon Master requires the same skills they are looking for in their employees; and that is why they partnered with Nintendo to develop the training tool.
