Cool concept, poor execution.  I wanted to catch Pokemon with AR, not touch a map icons.  Now a Pokemon AR game?  Hell yes.  Like geocaching but with Pokemon.

I don't have a device that I can download the app to, so I wasn't sure how it functioned.  I was under the impression that is was more of a geocaching thing, that would have been cool.

Yeah, it's super lame.  You open Google Maps and scroll around the map.  Find a Pokemon, touch the icon, touch the "catch" button, acquire Pokemon, repeat. I got like 20 in 10 mins.

It is just for April Fools day, so maybe they didn't want to put too much of a development effort into it. lol
