Pokémon GO’s GO Snapshot: Pick, pose, snap any Pokémon you’ve caught

/ 07:53 PM February 13, 2019

Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International have announced GO Snapshot, a new feature with enhanced AR tech that lets Pokémon GO Trainers take pics of any Pokémon they’ve caught anywhere they please.

While Pokémon GO Pokémon Trainers have been able to take pics of wild Pokémon in the real world via an AR integration with smartphone cameras (AR+ mode), the app creators announced Tuesday that soon, users will be able to “take photos of ANY Pokémon in [their] Pokémon Storage, whenever and wherever.”


This upcoming feature, called GO Snapshot, is made possible by the new “enhanced AR feature turn[ing] the real world into a canvas for Trainers.” This will allow users to not only take pictures of any captured Pokémon in their Pokédex in the real world, but also move and pose them for the perfect shot; if that Bulbasaur is looking off at something else, all you’ll have to do is “brush across it to get its attention, and it will be sure to face you.”

As for the launch of the feature, The Pokémon Company International only states that it will be arriving to Pokémon GO “soon.” For now, you’ll still have to be quick to snap a selfie with that wild Butterfree. JB
