This is perhaps the cutest April Fool's Day joke that to ever exist, and it started one day early.

On Monday, iPhone and Android users were treated by the Pokémon that had invaded the Google Maps app. There are at least 150 Pokémon available, which are not the original from the beginning of the series, and they can be found all over the world, according to Kotaku.

They appear as little icons near the locations, and if clicked on, users can save them. The Maps app even comes with Pokedex to help you keep track of all the Pokémon you've caught.

Need help getting started? Here's where you can catch some of them:

1. Munchlax is at the Empire State Building, New York City

2. Pikachu is at the Tokyo Tower, Tokyo

3. Rotam is at the Rockefeller Center, New York City

4. Pumpkaboo is at Red Square, Moscow
