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 in a cap|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.
