Players can encounter Clone Pikachu by opening the game's camera and taking pictures. Eventually, Clone Pikachu will appear through a photobomb. After taking a picture with him in it, you can return to the game map and see the Clone Pikachu standing nearby.

Once you capture him, you can confirm that it is a Clone Pikachu by looking at the ears. If the ears have black-spiked tips, then you know it's a Clone Pikachu. Players will be able to encounter Clone Pikachu in this manner once per day until the end of the event.
