Yelp gets in on the Pokémon Go action with its own PokéStop filter

Yelp just got a little more helpful to all of your Pokémon trainers out there. The service will now let you know which restaurants have Pokémon Go PokéStops nearby. The new capability is part of Yelp's filter options.

From Yelp:

As you head into a weekend full of wild Zubats and Charmanders, remember to open up your Yelp app or search for businesses with a nearby PokéStop. To do this on mobile or desktop, simply search for a type of local business ("bars," "restaurants," etc.), swipe through the filter options at the top, hit "PokéStop Nearby," and voilà! You can now find places to simultaneously run errands AND stock up on materials needed to catch that Eevee you've been eyeing.

The feature is only available in Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. at the moment. Additionally, availability of the filter is limited to certain areas within those countries. To help expand its implantation, Yelp is asking people to check in at businesses with PokéStops nearby and answer a question to let people know that a stop is near that location.

You'll find the PokéStop filter in Yelp now, with no new update required.
