You can now find businesses on Yelp based on their proximity to a Pokestop.

Just in case you thought that you'd seen all the Pokemon GO tie-ins, here's yet another one. Yelp will now let you filter their business listings to find those businesses that are near Pokestops.

In a blog post featuring some questionable Pokemon puns, Yelp announced the feature, saying, "Today we're launching a new feature and search filter to better help you catch 'em all. We know you're going to Diglett." Sigh.

The company is still building a database of Pokestops, and it's asking for users to check in and fill out a survey that will help identify it.

The filter is currently available for users in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
