New Pokemon Snap is the upcoming sequel to the 1999 game Pokemon Snap. This new game will be similar to its original, in that it will be a first-person simulation game. With rail shooter-style gameplay mechanics. The new game has been developed by Bandai Namco Studios for the Nintendo switch. While the previous game was developed by HAL Laboratory and Pax Softnica. This game’s main idea is to take pictures of Pokemon while traveling. The new game will be releasing on April 30th. In celebration of this new game, Pokemon Go has decided to hold an event ‘The Pokemon Go Snap Event’. Niantic, the developers of Pokemon Go, had announced the event on April 14th. This event will take place before the start of the Luminous Legends X event which will begin on May 4th. With this Pokemon Go’s events have been lined up for trainers to take part in.
What And When Is The Pokemon Go’s Snap Day Event?
To make the event similar to the game, this event will have you take snapshots of Pokemon in the event. The new game takes place in the Lental region. So Pokemon that were inspired by the Lental Region will be appearing more frequently during the event and in raids. There will also be new avatar items and stickers available for the event. The avatar and stickers will be photography-based. Alongside this, the shiny Smeargle will finally be coming to Pokemon Go too. The event will start on Thursday 29th April at 10 a.m. local time and will end on Sunday 2nd May at 8 p.m. local time.
During this event, specific Pokemon will also receive spawn boosts. The Pokemon which have been given the spawn boost are local to the Lental region. They will also boost the shiny counterparts of said Pokemon as well. This is very good news for any trainer trying to get their hands on shiny Pokemon in the wild.
What Will The Tasks Be For The Event?
The Celebration quest will be a snap quest. In this quest, you will have to find specific Pokemon and take pictures of them. Not only this you will also have the chance to capture Pokemon during this quest as well. Besides this, there will also be a special research quest as well. This can be attained by spinning Pokestops. In the research event, you will have to use different types of berries to catch specific Pokemon. As well as take a number of snapshots of wild Pokemon to complete the task.
The event will take place over a period of 4 days. This should be enough time for trainers to go out and complete the tasks. As well as have find time to focus on catching some Pokemon. Especially since a new shiny will be released during this event. Other than this it’s good luck to the trainers during this event. It will be taking place over the weekend from Thursday to Sunday, so trainers should be ready to clear their schedule and focus on nothing but capturing Pokemon at this time.
