Google will take 4-6 weeks to ship out the mysterious gifts, so it's definitely a physical thing headed to your door. Let us know what it is, if you managed to snag all 151.

A true Pokemon Master does it for the thrill of the hunt, not the reward. The worthy have been chosen.

No form for me yet. Other comments on the story suggest they might be sent out in waves. Fingers crossed!

Probably the Pokemon Master business card from the video. Super cool that Google is doing this.

Ugh. I got 150, could not for the life of me find Mew, cleared the cache, which in turn apparently cleared my history of ever catching any pokemon. This is rough.

It was on Google Maps. You look for Pokemon around in cities and other locations around the world.

Am I just a bad person or a really bad person that I was noticeably a bit glad when I saw how many people got only 150/151?

I wonder if this is US only as I got all 151 and haven't had the notification....yet....(I did take screenshots at the time for 150/150 and pokedex complete to post on social media) I had a feeling at the time that they would reward people who completed this, they just seemed to be promoting it rather a lot for just an April Fools joke.

I sure hope so. That is always the reward in the games well minus the charms you also get these days.
