We all remember the Pokemon Snap, right? A classic Nintendo 64 game in which you drove along rails through various levels, making candid photos of unsuspecting Pokemon in their natural habitat.
As a child I was obsessed with revealing all the secrets and hidden features of this photo. Now the team behind the AR AR Pokemon Go mobile phenomenon seems to support this spirit a bit with the latest Snapshop feature.
By sending the phone to the zone in the real world, you can drop the pokeball and release any captured pokemon to take a photo in the real world. The results lead to some rather surprising situations, such as Psyduck, standing next to real ducks, Pikachu, playing in the jungle gym, and much more. It is surprising that such a function has not been added previously.
Here are some of the great examples from Niantic:
This feature is explained in the blog as follows:
Select a Pokémon and tap the screen to throw it at this place. After your Pokemon is in the perfect place, you can navigate through it to find the best angle for your photo. Is your Pokemon distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush over him to get his attention, and he will definitely turn his head at you.
Take as many photos as you like during the session. After you finish, all photos will be saved on your device automatically! Now sharing a unique photo of your favorite Pokemon with friends is easier than ever. Simply select the social network with which you want to share a photo. This way you can show your masterpiece to your friends with a few quick taps.
