Pokémon Go gets improved function

Niantic adds the ability to Pokémon Go to make all captured Pokémon ar photos. There was already an ar-function in the game, but with that only pictures could be taken at the moment of catching.

Niantic calls the function GO Snapshot . Once the feature becomes available, it is possible to make ar-photos of all Pokémon that a player has in his Storage. A button will be available for all Pokémon and the function can also be accessed by clicking on the camera in the Item storage.

When the function is activated, the camera is opened and players must point to a spot in the picture. The chosen Pokémon appears on that spot. Then players can move around and take pictures. By ‘stroking’ the Pokémon on the screen, it will turn in the direction of the camera.

Pokémon Go had been released since the game in the summer of 2016, an ar-function, but it could be used while catching Pokémon. Only at the spot of capture could players take a picture of the monster in question.

At the end of 2017, the iPhone version of Pokémon Go got an improved ar mode by adding ARKit support. This improved the placement of samples on the camera image and made it possible to walk around the Pokémon. That also only worked when catching. A year later, that improvement also came to Android through ARCore support.

Last year , Niantic demonstrated object recognition in the Pokémon Go engine, enabling the display of virtual objects that disappear behind objects in the real world. However, it does not seem that that functionality now comes to the game with the update.

At the time of writing, the new function is not yet active. Niantic usually makes such adjustments a few days after the announcement.
