On the chance that the date hasn’t been circled on your calendar for months, New Pokémon Snap will come to the Nintendo Switch family of devices on April 30. To celebrate, a New Pokémon Snap and Pokémon Go crossover event will begin on April 29.
Pokémon Go trainers will tackle photography-themed research tasks with the “New Pokémon Snap Celebration” from 10 a.m. local time on April 30 to 8 p.m. local time on May 2. They will be tasked with catching different types of Pokémon that are found across New Pokémon Snap’s Lental region and can grab (free!) camera-themed avatar items from the Pokémon Go Style Shop.
In addition to Venusaur, Dodrio, and Skarmory, trainers may even be able to catch a glimpse of the Painter Pokémon, Smeargle, which loves making appearances in Trainer’s snapshots. For a limited time, some lucky trainers could find Shiny Smeargle. Be sure to take lots of snapshots to catch ’em all.
