Last month we asked to see your Costume Pokémon AR photographs, and this month I couldn’t help but use a favourite theme of mine, Pokémon in Nature. Seeing Pokémon out in natural settings, whether that is Grass types in the woods, or Bug types in the flowers and so much more, it is just right! We had our most amount of submissions ever! I was so excited to see what you all made this month, so let’s dive right in.

And there among the branches was not a huge Galvantula, but a little one blending into its environment. Maybe there are some spiders that aren’t so scary after all. As long as it stays on its branch of course!’
