What is the Pokemon GO Weather Week?
Weather Week is the latest Pokemon GO event. It contains a ton of featured wild Pokemon, including Vaporeon, Poliwag, Stunfisk and, for the first time ever, Shiny Rainy Form Castform. Alongside those, Pokemon appearing in Eggs and Raids have also changed.
The event also contains a range of Special Research tasks, with some great rewards. Some of these Timed Research tasks challenge players to take a snapshot of a Water-type Pokemon – and here’s how you can do it.
Step 1. Capture the Pokemon
This should be really easy. Players just need to capture one Water-type Pokemon to be able to complete this challenge. With the event focusing around this type, they should be everywhere.
If you already have a ton of Pokemon, use the search function in the app and type in “Water”. This will bring up all the Water-type Pokemon you’ve captured and will allow you to select one to take a snapshot of.
Step 2. Take a Snapshot of the Water-type Pokemon in Pokemon GO.
This is the slightly trickier step. To take a photo of the Pokemon – players will need to select one from the Pokemon section of the Pokemon GO in-game menu.
After selecting the Pokemon, players need to select the camera symbol in the top right corner of the screen as seen in this picture of Landorus:
After that, you will be taken to a camera screen where you need to scan a flat surface until you see these little petals floating around:
From there, all you need to do, is click the camera at the bottom and the task is complete:
And there you have it – how to Take a Snapshot of a Water-type Pokemon!
