If there is one thing we have insisted on in recent years ("we" means "at least one of us"), then it is a direct follow-up to Pokémon Snap. The 3DS seemed a perfect opportunity with its camera functionality, but nothing, and the GamePad of the Wii U seemed even more suitable because you could align it with the TV, but no. We claim it would be just as good on Switch, or even as a mobile game, but it just does not happen, right?
Well, Niantic now offers the best that the world has to offer Pokémon GO. A new feature called GO Snapshot is on the way to the game, giving players a much more robust photo system with the AR + feature of the game. Billed as an easy way to take photos of your Pokémon, the new option will become available when you watch a Pokémon or when you open the camera in your bag.
An update of Niantic's official blog sheds more light on how the function works:
"It's easy to use Select a Pokémon and tap the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot, and once your Pokémon is in the ideal spot, you can move around it to find the best angle for your photo. distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush it to get his attention, and it will certainly look at you.
Take as many photos as you want during your session. When you're done, all photos are automatically saved on your device! It is 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 few quick taps. "
It sounds like a nice extra for fans of the game and it could be a great way to become creative and find clever ways to show off your collection.
