Pokémon GO allows you to take photos of your Pokémon with this new mode

This function is based on Augmented Reality technology, and add your Pokémon to the site where you are viewing your mobile camera, that is, similar to how the capture system works, but with the possibility of taking a photo of a Pokémon that you already have on your team.


A feature that users have asked for a lot, and that has finally reached the application natively, as some already did but with screenshots of their game, in a more rudimentary way. And now, in the short time this feature has been around, it’s causing a stir among users of this still popular game.

When you turn on the function, in-game call Snapshot, allows you to put the Pokémon wherever you want in your surroundings and even change the angle of view of your pocket monster so that your photograph is perfect. The options that it leaves you unleash the creativity of many users and that has been clearly seen on Instagram with the hashtag #gosnapshot, where people show their vision of the Pokémon world with fun photographs.
