With the new Pokemon Go Snap event announced, there are 15 Pokemon that you can expect to see a lot more of for a limited time. 

To celebrate the release of the new Nintendo Switch game Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Go is hosting a limited-time event for players with various rewards to earn.

The Pokemon Snap Celebration will run between April 29 and May 2, 2021, giving players plenty of opportunities to get involved with bonuses and boosted spawns offered by the event.

It’s not very often that 15 Pokemon have their spawns increased during an event so make the most of it while it lasts. But which Pokemon have actually been boosted? Well, without further ado let’s check out the full list.

Pokemon Go has millions of players worldwide.

The release of another game in the Pokemon franchise is always an exciting time for fans, especially when there’s a brand new event to go alongside it.

Let’s hope Niantic continues to host these celebratory events in the future. A specific one for the Diamond & Pearl remakes would certainly get trainers on their feet.
