Google is Sending Pokémon Masters Their Own Fancy Business Cards

And they didn't even have to challenge the Elite Four!

Most of us saw and participated in Google’s elaborate Pokémon challenge game for April Fool’s Day this year, but not all of us actually had what it took to be very best that no one ever was and actually catch all the Pokémon scattered across the map. That’s why those select few got rewarded with a very special gift from Google headquarters: the coveted role of Pokémon master.

Over the weekend, one Reddit user who completed the Pokémon Challenge received this letter and set of business cards in the mail. How did they know where this person lived? Because they are Google, of course. They see all. Well, okay, that and the gifts are only reserved for “Trainers” who let Google know that they’ve caught all the Pokémon. But mostly the seeing all thing.

“While we don’t currently have a Pokémon Master role, we hope you enjoyed our April Fools’ Day prank,” says the letter, which appears to be signed by Google Maps software engineer Tatsuo Nomura. “Wynaut have a little fun once in a while?” We Seaking what you did there, Nomura. Congratulations on your Beautifly Pokémon pun.

The letter also comes with a set of ten official Google business cards. I don’t know that you’d necessarily want to hand them out considering just how few of them there are, but you could always find a nice display case to put them in.
