Pokemon Go will be having a surprise crossover with anime Pokemon series for this year’s April Fool’s Day gag. As reported by players, Ash Ketchum will appear inside the Pokemon go game by photo bombing the players whenever they use the GO Snapshot feature. This GO Snapshot feature allows the players to take Pokemon pictures that have been captured in the real world using the player’s camera and the AR technology in the game. While this GO Snapshot features a photobomb by Smeargle. However, now Ash Ketchum is now appearing in front of the Pokemon. Ketchum is seen wearing his anime Pokemon outfit, finished with the classic hat.
Ash Ketchum Isn’t The Only Character To Appear in Pokemon Go!
However, Ash Ketchum isn’t the only Pokemon which will appear in Pokemon Go! We have also seen Ash Hat Pikachu, which is basically Pikachu Pikachu wearing Ash’s hat will also be photobombing the players. A photobomb by either Ash Hat Pikachu or just Ash will make an Ash Hat Pikachu spawn. This will give players to capture this limited time Pokemon.
Ash Ketchum will not appear in Pokemon Go until midnight, so players in Europe or US will not be seeing Ash until tomorrow. To find Ash, users are required to use their GO Snapshot to click a few pictures of their Pokemon. They may then check the pictures to see if Ash has popped in to photobomb them.
We don’t know for how long the whole April Fool’s day gig will go on, but the anime back in Japan suggested that the upcoming episode’s news feature will be mentioning the Pokemon Go tie-in.
Here’s the official description of Pokemon Go:
