There's a lot of good news for Pokemon trainers and Pokemon hunters in the world - you want to be the very best without having to eat away at your battery and data - and now it is possible to use just a little less. Yelp has announced that they are launching a new search filter to help you find PokeStops.

While you will still have to search on your own for Weedles (do people actually search for Weedles?) and Eevees, all you have to do is use the Yelp app or search on to look for businesses that have a PokeStop nearby. In order to use the feature, all you have to do is search for a type of local business, like a restaurant, and swipe through the filter options at the top. There's an option for "PokeStop Nearby" and you will be able to get a list.

This means you'll be able to pick up your milk, bread, and eggs while getting an egg or some Pokeballs.

Yelp also says that they need help from the community. If you want to register your favorite local business as being near a PokeStop, check into that location on Yelp and answer a quick question to identify whether or not the Pokestop is nearby. The hope is that this will allow people to be safer while playing and help some of the small businesses nearby.

Within the first 24 hours, Yelpers have already found that there are thousands of Pokestops on the website, and that number is going to keep growing as more and more people learn about it. Currently, the feature is only available for Android and iOS in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand.
