With April Fools’ taking place tomorrow, Google will look to continue its long running stand as the king of pranks. With tons of cash to spend on elaborate ideas, the company has become known for over-the-top jokes; featuring celebrities, fantastic videos, and a ton of custom software to go along with the schemes.

The latest prank from Google is the Pokémon Challenge, which is an attempt by the company to hire a “Pokémon Master.” In order to get the gig, folks from all over the world must explore their surroundings using Google Maps, capturing Pokémon. The first to “catch ’em all” will win the position at Mountain View. 

So, is there a real job opening? Probably not. Is this another great April Fools’ joke from Google? Absolutely!
