Pokemon Go Player Took 25,000 Photos Before Getting Smeargle

Pokemon GO Snapshot and Smeargle were introduced in the game yesterday (Feb. 26) for the first time, and it seems like the chances of Smeargle photobombing are very low. Or should I say close to 1%?

I was curious to know what’s Smeargle’s rate, in our case how many photos and what’s the maximum number of photos that a player took before getting photobombed.

Now, I was expecting to see numbers like 30-40 photos, but here are the numbers. These numbers are basically showing the photobomb rate of Smeargle.

  • 300 photos and still no Smeargle
  • 400 photos without success
  • 600 photos
  • 1,000
  • 4,000
  • 6,000 and still no Smeargle

That’s a lot of photos, but for someone who loves Pokemon and wants to have Smeargle in their Pokedex, it’s not that big of a deal, right?

But what if I tell you that there is one person who says he took 25k photos, that’s 25,000 photos, with his iPhone 7, before the phone overheated and ran out of memory? Yes, it’s true! See for yourself.

Niantic Support replied to his Tweet explaining that Smeargle will only appear in the first photo of a session:

He eventually took the advice from Niantic Support and ended up getting Smeargle. Bravo for him!

How many photos did you take before getting Smeargle? Let us know in the comments section below.
