Now that Pokemon Go basically dictates your life, it makes sense that if you have to go outside and actually live a little, you might as well try to catch them all along the way. Yelp realizes this Venn Diagram of opportunity, and has implemented a new filter for you to search only for businesses that have nearby PokéStops.
Nope, not April Fool’s. Just check out the iOS or Android Yelp app and search for a business and you’ll find a blue PokéStop tab to filter results to just businesses where you can access them in the game. If you leave a review, Yelp may also ask whether this business has a nearby PokéStop, as far as you are aware.
