In [[Pokémon GO]], players may take pictures of Pokémon when they are encountered them in the wild, or once they are caught and kept in the player's storage. Initially, players were only able to take pictures of Pokémon encountered in the wild. With this feature, players may choose to take the photographs with or without the AR mode activated. When a photograph has been taken, the pictures will be saved on their mobile devices' internal storage or external {{wp|memory card}}.
 
'''GO Snapshot''' is a feature introduced on February 25, 2019, which enabled players to take photos of their Pokémon in storage. This feature can be accessed through the camera icon on the individual Pokémon's status screen, or by accessing the camera through the items list, and photos can be taken with or without AR+ mode activated. Without AR+, the Pokémon will be remain fixed in position facing forward in the center of the screen, while AR+ enables the player to keep the position of the Pokémon fixed relative to its background and therefore players can move around the Pokémon to obtain a greater variety of photos. Once the photos are taken, the player will be able to review the photos taken, and can directly share their photos to social media. The photos will also be saved automatically to the devices' internal storage or external memory card.
 
Occasionally, the photo will be intercepted by a {{p|Smeargle}} which will appear in front of the photo taken. Smeargle will only appear in the first few images taken per session, and the image with and without the photobomb will be saved. Once this happens, a wild Smeargle will appear around the player, and is currently the only method of obtaining Smeargle. Smeargle's moveset will be the identical to the moveset of the Pokémon of which the photo was taken.
 
On [[April Fools' Day 2019|April Fools' Day]] till April 3, 2019, Smeargle was replaced with {{Ash}} or a {{AP|Pikachu wearing Ash's hat|Pikachu}} as the photobomb character. A wild Pikachu wearing Ash's hat would spawn near the player after this had occurred.
 
These surprise encounters enable players to earn the {{tc|Cameraman}} [[List of Medals in Pokémon GO|medal]] depending on the number of photobombs they have had.
