Niantic has announced Pokémon GO Snapshot, a new feature for the location-based mobile game that will let you take photos of any pocket monster in your Pokémon Storage.
“Introducing GO Snapshot – an easy way to take a photo of any Pokémon you have in your Pokémon Storage! You can find the feature when looking at a specific Pokémon or accessing the camera in your Bag of items,” Niantic explains.
“It’s simple to use. Select a Pokémon and tap on the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot. Once your Pokémon is situated in the ideal spot, you can then move around it to find the best angle for your photo. Is your Pokémon distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush across it to get its attention, and it will be sure to face you.
“Take as many photos as you like during your session. Once you’re finished, all photos are saved to your device automatically! It’s also easier than ever to share your favorite photo via social media. Just select the linked social channel you want to share with, and you can show your friends your masterpiece with a couple of quick taps.”
The developer encourages you to share your photos on social media with the hashtag, #GOsnapshot. Happy snapping!
