Hello trainers! A few updates have been pushed and unearthed by the Pokéminers, including a Pokémon Snap tie-in event, some friendship event details, and more! As always, data mined information is subject to change and not endorsed by Niantic in any way.

Let’s dive in!

Pokémon Snap

The New Pokémon Snap is being released on April 30th on the Nintendo Switch. In order to celebrate the release of this long awaited title, Pokémon GO is hosting a tie-in event focused around the Snapshot feature.

It’s a celebration!

There is a quest for every type, I didn’t list them all.  It’s interesting that only Hoothoot is mentioned specifically by itself, so it’s likely going to be the featured Pokémon.  Perhaps getting its shiny release?

The probable featured Pokémon

Pokemon GO Shiny Hoothoot

Shiny Hoothoot

Pokemon GO Shiny Noctowl

Shiny Noctowl

  • Shiny Hoothoot release is not confirmed

This list based on the snapshot quests that were uncovered.  Again, the release of shiny hoothoot is speculation only and is not confirmed!

This was added separately to the Snap event quests, and it’s likely going to be part of the Sustainability Week that was already announced.

Miscellaneous stuff

RESOURCE ID: quest_wild_dragon_types

There’s one of these for each type.  They are listed as quests, however, they look like something you would see in the Today tab… So, that’s interesting.

That’s all for now trainers, stay safe out there!
