  • From ‘Items’ pick you camera and any Pokemon from your team.
  • Start clicking pictures of that chosen Pokemon and quit the Camera mode.
  • Now, it’s time to look at the photos that you have taken. It is likely that Smeargle might have photobombed one of the pictures.
  • If you see Smeargle in any of the photos, view that photo and click exit. A Smeargle will appear somewhere near you.
  • However, if you don’t spot a Smeargle in any of the photos, try clicking photos of random Pokemon again.
  • Now, all you have to do is catch that Smeargle!
