Pokémon GO will have an event to celebrate Pokémon Snap release

There are many special events coming to Pokémon GO in the following days. For instance, "The Sustainability Week" is taking place on April 20 and "Friendship Day" on April 24.

If this isn't enough for you, don't worry: a new event has been announced today. This time, a celebration of the Pokémon Snap release, which will be on April 30.

During this unique event, you'll be able to see more Pokémon from the Lental region, purchase an exclusive avatar and sticker, and capture a new shiny.

Event details

  • Pokémon inspired by the deserts, jungles, and underwater landscapes of the Lental region—such as Lotad, Cacnea, and Ducklett—will be appearing more often in the wild!
  • Smeargle will be appearing in snapshots more often than usual! If you’re lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Smeargle! Please note that Smeargle will only appear in snapshots a limited number of times, and while Shiny Smeargle will no longer appear after the event concludes, you may encounter one during future events.
  • Pokémon inspired by the Lental region—like Vaporeon, Meganium, and Trapinch—will be appearing more often in raids!
  • Look forward to event-exclusive Field Research and Timed Research that’s focused on taking snapshots!
  • A camera avatar item and a camera-themed Gift sticker will be available in the shop during the event! The new Gift sticker will also be available from PokéStops.

The celebration event is scheduled for April 29 to May 2. For further details, please check the official website.
