Step 1 – Catch Hoopa

Now, this seems obvious and many players will already have a Hoopa at this point, however, there may be people who don’t.

For those that still need to grab a Hoopa in Pokemon GO, this can be done by completing Step 3 of the Misunderstood Mischief research story that has been running for the last few months.

To complete Step 3, players will need to:

  • Make 5 Curveball Throws
  • Catch 10 different species of Pokemon
  • Earn 5,000 Stardust

Step 2 – Take the Snapshot of Hoopa

Once you’ve caught a Hoopa, here’s a step by step guide of how to take a snapshot of it.

First of all, you’ll need to find Hoopa in your Pokemon list and click on it. Once on the following screen, you’ll need to locate and click the camera icon in the top right corner of your screen.

This will then open your camera. Once here, look around for a flat surface until little yellow leaves appear, like the ones in the image below:

At this point, if you tap anywhere on the screen, Hoopa will appear. Once the Mischief Pokemon is in view, you are golden.

Just click the camera icon as highlighted in the image below and you will take your Snapshot of Hoopa and complete the Pokemon GO Mischief Unbound Research Task.
