Hoenn Themed AR Showcase

Posted in

Last month we host a Water Themed AR Showcase and we some truly incredible entries! This month to celebrate Hoenn Tour, a Hoenn theme seemed like the perfect choice. Hopefully you got new shinies, new Primals and more to photograph for the first time, and we couldn’t wait to see which Hoenn Pokémon you chose to highlight.
