This month we decided to ask for AR photographs featuring those marmite costume Pokémon! Love them or hate them, they’ve become a huge part of Pokémon GO events, so we wanted to see your best shots involving them.
The below AR images have not been edited in any way.
‘Where Flowers Bloom’ by Feresk, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines.
‘My little girl gathered for herself some flowers and put it on her head. Now all I have to figure out is how to convince her to go home with me.’
‘Midsummer night dream.’ by nanarrn, Hiroshima City, Japan.
‘The costume makes you feel a special night.’
‘She Dropped Her Paddle!’ by AmyArcanine, Michigan, United States.
‘I was walking along the lakeshore when I heard someone sobbing. The sound was coming from this poor Wobuffet. She was all dressed up to go to a party, but dropped her paddle in the lake. Lucky for her I was able to rescue the paddle and she was able to make it to her party on time!’
‘Gunking up the Fountain!’ by MysticSquirrel, Indianapolis, Indiana.
‘Having a Sunday lunch with an old Pal, I see this lil beauty hanging out in the Fountain. Always time for a good Snapshot!’
‘Strike a pose.’ by ずんだオレ, Harajuku.
‘Strike a pose.’
‘Angry explorer’ by Michaelalex246, Barbados.
‘Pikachu has been hiking for days to be able to see the best view of the amazon. He took along his videographer so they could capture a genuine reaction video. However, when Pikachu reached the lookout point, he realised that it had all been demolished by deforestation and was very angry! I think his videographer caught a genuine reaction after all! Even if it wasn’t the one we were all expecting.’
‘Go fest 2021’ by Heather87crosby, Sarnia Ontario, Canada.
‘Having fun at sunset’
‘Sunny Pikachu’ by AmyArcanine, Michigan, United States.
‘Pikachu got very excited when we walked past these sunflowers because they match her hat. She had to pose for a photo with them!’
‘Exploration and picture time!’ by HazelCrocus, IJmuiden, the Netherlands.
‘Hatted shiny Croagunk isn’t always happy to go and explore new areas. But the old WOII bunkers he found very interesting and explored away going in and out of the bunkers. He also really wanted to take a picture of him at an entrance of a bunker hidden between the dunes.’
‘A pocket full of sunshine’ by Feresk, Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Philippines.
‘Took my Leafeon to my grandmother’s garden, and she used Sunny Day to pose for this picture right here.’
By Pokemoninlife, Fantasy Story, Taichung, Taiwan.
‘This world is still under cruel attack by COVID-19. We’ve been through a lot all over the world. It’s lucky Togepi and I are safer here in my country. And we had a great afternoon outside while I was wearing facial masks. We would like to say thanks for our medical staff and those who fight for people in the front line. Besides, take good care of yourselves, Trainers!!! Hope to see you in the future.’
‘My angel💕’ by nanarrn, Hiroshima City, Japan.
‘Flowers are a proof for you special.’
‘Colorful’ by Will-O-wisp, Batroun, Lebanon.
‘Most boats you see in the old Batroun port are small, made out of wood and are used for fishing. They’re also quite uniform in their colors, mostly being painted white which makes this one peculiar boat stand out with its radiant paint job. No wonder my Pikachu asked to be photographed next to it!’

‘Every year a Leafeon is chosen to be the Guardian of the Garden. This Leafeon is bestowed the flower crown by the Sacred Shiny Bellosom, the keeper of the garden.
