Niantic recently released a new AR photo mode for Pokemon Go, and he came with surprise: Smeargle. The Pokemon artist has begun to appear in the mobile game for the first time, but the only way to get into it is through the new mode. It is reported that Smeargle will appear from time to time on the photos you make, then you will show up in the wild after you exit the mode that allows you to catch it.
In other Pokemon Go news this week, Niantic introduces a new element in the game called Team Medallion. It can be purchased from the gaming store and allows players to change teams, but can only be used once every 365 days. The developer has also returned the legendary Pokemon Latias for a limited time.
