One of the most popular games on mobile devices from the Pokemon series right now is Pokemon Go. Coaches need to interact with the outside world as the game uses an augmented reality feature. And of course, one of the main activities is hunting and catching various Pokémon. However, not all Pokémon can be easily encountered.
What is Snapshot Encounter?
Smeargle is one such Pokemon. He appeared in the game along with the new snapshot encounters feature. It works quite simply. Players need to take a snapshot of a Pokémon, and then they will have a chance to encounter that Pokémon. Players can take as many snapshots as they want, however, the Pokémon, in our case Smeargle, will only be able to photobomb the first snapshot. Therefore, we recommend that you take one snapshot at a time. You only have one chance per day to encounter Smeargle and take a snapshot.
Smeargle Snapshot Encounter Rate Increased
Now we will look at the Snapshot Encounter Rate. Since the introduction of Smeargle in early 2019, its Snapshot Encounter Rate has steadily increased. And according to the latest data, now it has become even higher. At the moment, trainers have a 1/5 chance, which means that under normal conditions, in 5 days you will be able to catch Smeargle. However, some events such as the Community Day guarantee that snapshot encounters will succeed on the first try. And what’s even nicer is that you can snapshot multiple times a day during these special events. So hurry up to get a cute Smeargle in your collection.
