New Pokémon Snap is to be released on April 30 for the Nintendo Switch, and Niantic is planning to celebrate the occasion with a special Snap-themed Pokémon GO event.

This New Pokémon Snap Celebration will emphasize the more artistic side of being a trainer, as it focuses on photography.

The event will contain exclusive research tasks and encounters with Pokémon that feature in New Pokémon Snap, such as Skarmory and Venusaur. The exact details of the research tasks and encounters have yet to be revealed, but Niantic will likely release more info as the date approaches.

Other Pokémon will also be making an appearance — especially if they are artistically inclined in the same way one like Smeargle is. Smeargle will pop up in Snapshots throughout this event.

You still have time to get ready, so don't panic! The New Pokémon Snap Celebration will start at 10 a.m. local time on April 29, and then end at 8 p.m. local time on May 2.
