Pokémon Go gets New Pokémon Snap event with Shiny Smeargle

New Pokémon Snap is pertaining to Nintendo Turn on April 30, and a brand-new Pokémon Go occasion is coming with it. Pokémon Go collectors, particularly those on the hunt for hard-to-find Shiny Pokémon, ought to remember: This is how you’ll (ideally) get your Shiny Smeargle.

Pokémon Go’s New Pokémon Snap Event begins April 29, and it’s everything about Pokémon from the Lental Area, the setting for Nintendo’s brand-new photography video game. Given, there are no Lental Region-specific Pokémon, so Pokémon Go gamers will need to be content with capturing Pokémon “inspired by” that brand-new location.

The occasion will see Pokémon like Lotad, Cacnea, Ducklett, Vaporeon, Meganium, and Trapinch appearing in the wild and in raids. However the genuine draw is Shiny Smeargle, that makes its Pokémon Go launching — and will just be offered in the mobile video game (for the foreseeable future, that is) from April 29 to May 2.

Shiny Smeargle will be a chance encounter. The Painter Pokémon will appear as it normally does: in snapshots taken with Pokémon Go’s in-game camera. Players will have more opportunities to see Smeargle than normal, but it will just appear in photos “a limited number of times” during the four-day event. There will be event-exclusive Field Research and Timed Research focused on taking photos in Pokémon Go to help players in their search.

Pokémon Go’s New Pokémon Snap occasion runs Thursday, April 29 at 10 a.m. to Sunday, May 2 at 8 p.m. regional time.
