The Pokemon Go news doesn’t stop coming! Among numerous special events, Niantic have announced a brand new feature coming to Pokemon Go – GO Snapshot!

Pokemon Go Snapshot

Introducing Pokemon Go Snapshot! This is a brand new mode where you can take photo-shoot quality photos of your beloved Pokemon.

Niantic state that the inspiration of the new mode comes from the plethora of photos taken with the AR+ feature. Pokemon and reality are getting increasingly closer to each other!

How Does Snapshot Work?

The new feature can be utilized by navigating to either a specific Pokemon in your storage or accessing the camera through the bag.

With the camera on you can throw your chosen Pokemon’s poke ball to where you want to take the pictures. Whether you want a Pikachu on top of a car or a Mewtwo in your bed, the options are endless!

Furthermore, once your Pokemon is in the desired location, you can move around it in order to get that perfect angle. An additional feature is the ability to get the Pokemon to look towards you also.

The official Pokemon Go Twitter page have since confirmed more minor features about the new upcoming feature. AR photos taken in a single session can be reviewed without exiting Pokemon Go.

Easy to Share on Social Media

Once you’ve finished with the photo-shoot, you can take as many photos as you want by the way, they are easy to share on Social Media.

Not only are the photos saved to your device automatically but if your social accounts are linked (Facebook, Twitter, etc) then you can share them there with just a couple of clicks.

The era of Pokemon vanity is upon us!

Snapshot Release Date

Pokemon Go Snapshot is live now! Currently, only for level 5+ trainers on Android devices. Snapshot will become available for iOS over the next 24 hours. That’s before 17:00 PST, February 24.

Usually big releases such as this are rolled out to varying levels of trainer and not by device type.

An incredible, complete set of 1999 first-edition Pokemon cards is available for auction – and it’s looking like it could sell for more than half a million dollars when it’s all said and done.

The complete set is made up entirely of PSA 10s, the best possible grade one can give to a card, meaning these are in tip-top condition.

According to Goldin Auctions, who is hosting the bid, the collection includes four extremely sought-after Charizard cards. For many, Charizard is considered the holy grail of Pokemon cards.

So far, five people have put in the funds necessary to bid on the collection in two weeks. If you want to join in, you’re going to need some deep pockets – the minimum bid starts at $125,000.

The fact that there are four Charizards alone in the collection is nothing to scoff at, and could very well be the cherry on top of the pristine PSA 10 collection.

Just back in October of 2020, rapper Logic purchased the 1st Edition card for just over $226,000. But that was then, and this is now.

Goldin Auctions states they “just sold an SGC Gold Label Pristine 10 ‘1 of 1’ example of the Charizard for nearly $400,000 in their December Holiday Auction.”

While the card alone can sell for a ridiculous amount, booster box prices have also seen their value rise.

As the TGC community has continued to grow, plenty of YouTubers and Twitch stars have started spending a lot of money on booster boxes from the 90s. The end result is that costs have skyrocketed.

Earlier in December, a booster box from Heritage Auctions sold for a whopping $408,000.

Given the insanity of the current lot and just how many perfect condition cards are included, we could be seeing a brand new Pokemon record once the bidding wraps up. The only question is: Will it ever reach the million-dollar mark? We’ll have to see what 2021 has in store.
