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.

During [[Pokémon Day|Pokémon Day 2020]] event, Smeargle is replaced with [[Pikachutwo]] and [[Ash's Pikachu]] as the photobomb characters. A wild Pikachutwo spawns 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.
