Until now, all versions of Pokemon Go allowed taking photos of the Wild Pokemon that we were about to capture, that is; that the camera that every user has in the backpack / objects could only be used on the screen of a New Pokemon. Well, this camera has just been updated and now allows you to take photos of the Pokemon already captured and combined with Augmented Reality (AR) so you can take photos of the Pokemon anywhere.

The new Pokemon Go camera allows you to take photos of the Pokemon that you have already captured and therefore you can choose the position and place where you want to portray them. Until now the photos you could take were only of the wild Pokemon you wanted to capture. These Pokemon are in a fixed position and therefore you only had one position in which to take the photo.
This new Pokemon Go camera has been baptized as GO Snapshot and is linked to augmented reality or AR and therefore allows you to place your Pokemon in the position, angle and place you want. This favors taking really creative photos because for example we can take a photo of the Pokemon Slakoth (Lazy Bear) spread out on a sofa or bed.
As if that were not enough, the new Pokemon Go camera also incorporates a function with which you can share photos taken directly from the app without having to leave it.
The GO Snapshot camera for Pokemon Go is completely free and has no usage limits. It is also available for Android users after updating the game to version 0.135.0. IOS users, whether iPhone or iPad, will have to wait for the next update to enjoy this new function, however its operation will be exactly the same.
In this guide you will find the details on how to use the new GO Snapshot camera, how to use it, how to take the photos and how to share them:
How to take photos of Pokemon already captured in Pokemon Go, with the new Go Snapshot camera.
All you have to do is open your Pokemon Go app to line followed by clicking on the PokeBall icon in the central part of the lower part of the screen. When the options menu opens, you will have to access the option: Objects
On the next screen you will find all the objects that you have in your backpack. Among them you will find the Camera, which is included by default in the backpack of all Pokemon Go users. You will see how now the icon is displayed differently. After clicking on the camera, the screen will open showing all the Pokemon currently captured in which we have to select the Pokemon we want to take the photo of.
Once the Pokemon is selected, you must accept the warning: Make sure you are in a safe place while using AR. After pressing OK, you will see how the selected Pokemon is shown on the screen and everything you point to with the rear camera of your mobile phone in the background. You can place the Pokemon anywhere around you, but you can also change the angle at which you want to capture your Pokemon just by turning it with your finger.
Note: If your device is not compatible with AR +, you will not be able to move the Pokémon in your image, that is, you will not be able to take photos of your Pokemon at different angles, but in any place you want.
When the Pokemon is in the desired position and place, all you have to do is click on the “camera” icon. Once the photo is taken you must click on the arrow-shaped icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
This will take you to the gallery of photos taken. Here you can select the photo of your Pokemon that you want to share or go to the end of the carousel and click on the share button My Photos.
The image will be selected and you only have to click on Share. This will open a menu where you can select the app, medium or contact with which you want to share that photo of your Pokemon taken with the Pokemon Go camera: GOsnapshot
