‘Angry Swampert’ by Superdrogon1, Hyderabad, Telangana , India.

‘Good Day for a Flight’ by EverdarkRaven, Northern New York.

‘We just started getting nice weather again after a long winter. It was really nice to get out, explore, and find Pokémon. While on my walk, these Emolga swooped in to say hello! I was worried the one might attack me when I got their photo, but they were both very friendly!’

‘The dark beast’ by ElKhan32, Essex, UK.

‘The monster of nightmares, the beast of unrivalled power’

‘University Guard’ by Adikar123, Hyderabad, Telangana , India.

‘Pidgeot defending the sacred ground of the university baring anyone from destroying it. ‘

By WatershipBound, Rochester, NY, USA.

‘I really enjoy the mini pokemon technique, but instead of trying to make the pokemon look small, I like to try to make small things in the surroundings look big. I don’t think a pangoro would normally look at home in Rochester, NY, but shrinking him down makes the otherwise small bush branches look like trees.’

‘Light in the tunnel’ by ElKhan32, Essex, UK.

‘Walking through the tunnel I could make out a light at the end. As I got closer the more I regretted that choice ‘

‘Raising From Shadows – Darkrai’ by rockARaptor, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

‘The subtle color of shiny Origin Forme Giratina stands out against the stark black and white tones of a winter day.’

‘What IF? There are no colours in world’ by rockARaptor, Hyderabad Telangana India.

‘This rock god loved kiss. Rock out!’


The below images are composites/full edits, made using a combination AR, existing images, and extensive editing.

‘Good Omens?’ by Rhanique, The Netherlands.

‘It’s the oldest story in the books: the story of good against bad. Or is it? Things can be a bit grey sometimes. Good and Bad can work together, like these two Zweilous heads do.

This old edit of mine also made me think of the tv show Good Omens, of which the second season is almost upon us. Have you seen it? I for one look forward to it!

AR Masters

The below images are taken by our AR Masters.

By Kenken, Shibuya station, Japan.

‘There was a black and white pattern, so I took a picture.’

‘Ready for battle’ by Pokegramstm, The Colosseum in Rome.

‘An epic location for an epic Pokémon. Super difficult to get a good picture of it. Groudon is massive and the Colosseum is full of people. Lots of trial and error to get this shot.

This is paired with my primal Kyogre picture (below)’

‘Making a splash’ by Pokegramstm, Trevi fountain in Rome.

‘An epic location for an epic Pokémon. Super difficult to get a good picture of it. Kyogre is massive and the Trevi is full of people. Lots of trial and error to get this shot.

This is paired with my primal Groudon picture (above)’

‘It looms’ by kittypokemonsalot, Lincolnshire, UK.

‘Zekrom has such a menacing design, with a muscular appearance, claws for hands and angular wings. I positioned this Zekrom on top of a table so that I could photograph it from below to add to that air of impending doom with the stormy clouds in the background. A bit of editing to desaturate the image further and this is still one of my favourite AR photos a couple of years on’
