Last month we asked to see your best summer themed AR photographs, and there were beautiful entries, so this month we set a bit more of a challenge. Any theme, but you can only photograph end stage/final evolutions! There is a lot of variety in Pokémon here, and some amazing concepts!
The below AR images have not been edited in any way.
‘Journey’s End’ by mingosanch, Makapu’u Point Trail, Oahu, Hawaii.
‘After seven years of playing this game, I finally hit level 50! I wanted to do something special to celebrate hitting that milestone, so I spent several months planning this AR shot of my favorite Pokémon at one of my favorite places in the world. It was important to me that this photo not seem like an ending. Charizard is looking into the distance at the vast world in front of it because while we’ve come a long way in this game together, there are still endless places to explore and things to experience!’
‘Don’t Mess with the Nest’ by Feresk, Bali, Indonesia.
‘I don’t believe people remember just how HUGE Braviary are. That being said, discovering me in its nest gave it an attitude problem.’
‘Gentle Roses and Blissey.’ by nana15AR, Hiroshima City, Japan.
‘Kindness combines strength and beauty.’
‘Greninja is ready for battle!’ by PkmnGOMatt, Eastbourne, United Kingdom.
‘I was training my Shiny Greninja after Community Day at the Beach to help it learn it’s new moves!’
By Superdrogon1, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
‘Primarina marking its territory and is furious when anyone tries to entire its habitat’
‘Act natural’ by phrixu, Kent, United Kingdom.
‘I was out on my lunchtime walk from work and the sheep on the nearby farm had all been moved to this field. I realised it was the perfect opportunity to take a snapshot of Dubwool with some friends!’
‘Such a Poser!’ by Feresk, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines.
‘When you fall with style and strike that superhero landing action.’
‘Midnight Rose’ by mingosanch, Massachusetts, USA.
‘Photographing Crobat in such dim lighting was really tricky, but I eventually was able to get a good picture. I love how the green of the tree in the background matches Crobat’s wings. I’m also glad I was able to get the moon in the background!’
‘A dangerous buddy, maybe’ by N3k0chan, Spain, Madrid.
‘Mi girlfriend running from rexie (tyrantrum)’
‘Surprised by a Xylocopa.’ by nana15AR, Hiroshima City, Japan.
‘While taking a picture with the flowers, Hydragon was surprised when Xylocopa flew by! Satisfied Xylokopa flew away again before Hydragon could use Brutal Swing.’
‘Ferry from Brownsea Island’ by Mark, Brownsea Island, England.
‘As we left Brownsea Island, it looks like a suspicious tree managed to stowaway, almost waving goodbye… ‘
‘Beach Time’ by Superdrogon1, Vijayawada , Andhra Pradesh.
‘Tentacruel enjoying time out and beach’
‘遊泳’ by りむ/ Limu, nearby river.
‘It was hard to choose a picture because it looks cool from any angle.’
‘Imposter at the Taj Mahal’ by MeMohitSingh, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.
‘Palossand in front of Taj Mahal… Acting to be one of the wonders of the world. ‘
‘Surge Surfer’ by mingosanch, Punalu’u Beach, Hawaii, USA.
‘While I was in Hawaii, I knew I needed to take some AR shots of Alolan Pokémon. I’ve always wanted to take a dynamic shot of my Alolan Raichu, so I waded into the ocean to take this picture! Timing Raichu’s attack animation at the same time as a wave, getting the camera low enough to capture the splashing water, and not getting knocked around too much by the waves was incredibly challenging, but I finally got a shot I’m proud of!’
‘Mass Outbreak’ by phrixu, Kent, UK.
‘A mass outbreak of the Axew line leads to an area of countryside being closed off to the public. This Haxorus has been spotted breaching the confined area ⚠️’
‘Oceanside Beauty’ by Laprasrules12, Honeymoon Island, Florida, U.S.A.
‘Milotic, after spending most of its life as an ugly fish, finally gets to show its beauty and sometimes likes to pop up on the beach to show all of the wildlife its beauty under the sun.’
‘Green on Green’ by Feresk, Bacolod, Negros Occidental, Philippine.
‘This little beauty hovered in front of me for a long time.’
‘Home of the Brave’ by mingosanch, Mauna Kea, Hawaii, USA.
‘My family and I hiked partway up Mauna Kea, the highest mountain in Hawaii. Even though we didn’t go all the way to the peak, we still climbed high enough to see a gorgeous sunset! Braviary’s Pokédex entry in Pokémon Sun states that ancient Alolan people respected it and referred to it as “the hero of the sky”, so it seemed fitting to take a photo of Braviary on Mauna Kea.’
‘A beautiful moment’ by nana15AR, Hiroshima City, Japan.
‘Jellicent met a beautiful flower at sunset.’
The below AR images have been edited or filtered in some way.
‘Mariposa Meadows’ by RoseDiamond10, California, US.
‘Butterfree followed the sweet scent of the last flowers of summer to find this golden meadow.’
‘Hunting the Hunter’ by Superdrogon1, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
‘Haxorus is looking out for the Pokémon Poachers’
‘Flying Osaka castle’ by u501, Osaka Castle, Osaka City, Japan.
‘The day after Pokemon GO Fest 2023 Osaka ended, Charizard was flying over Osaka Castle Park. Was it your next trip to New York, or did you miss Osaka? Either way, it’s a good memory.’
‘Altaria Afternoon’ by RoseDiamond10, California, US.
‘Wandering in the forest as if in a dream,
soft singing led to a graceful sight,
The glitter of gold is not always as it seems,
As the phoenix takes to the sky in flight.’
The below images are composites/full edits, made using a combination AR, existing images, and extensive editing.
‘Alolan beach battle’ by Maxotron2010, Florida, USA.
‘Golisopod and Decidueye are going head-to-head because of a territory dispute.’
‘Day at the beach with Uncle Sharpy’ by Maxotron2010, Florida.
‘Gible normally likes to be around sand, but this time it feels different. Sharpedo doesn’t understand why a shark like him would have a hard time getting in the water.’
‘Pokémonbusters’ by Maxotron2010, Gainesville, FL.
‘Having been influenced by your thoughts Lickylicky the Gozerian has taken form! The destroyer approaches! I was inspired to recreate this iconic scene when I saw the architecture of the steps for this parking garage.’
‘Corn Maze Of Nightmares’ by FusionFlashYT, Texas.
‘When walking through this corn maze I found a cool looking scarecrow, little did I know it was a pokemon. For some reason when I took the picture it glitched like crazy. Also some strange silhouette appeared too, maybe it’s haunted?’
The below images are taken by our AR Masters.
‘Tai Chi’ by kittypokemonsalot, Lincolnshire, UK.
‘Sneasler has a pretty interesting animation in Buddy Mode, which almost looks at times like they are meditating or practicing Tai Chi, with such a peaceful expression! I took this using the Bokehmon technique, a favourite of mine.’
