The second round of Pokémon GO’s Snapshot challenges tasked Trainers to embrace the world around them and to think about how Pokémon would interact with different environments. With this in mind, playing with Pokémon types (Water, Grass, Fire, etc.) and matching them to their elements in our world was key. The decided winner and two runners-up excelled with this concept, and it all led to some spooky results in the Pokémon GO’s Habitat Challenge.



Water, water everywhere! thepokejourney92’s Empoleon and somebodytoldmew’s Slowking are taking in the snowy mountain scene and thriving in an environment perfect for Water-types. Both Trainers will receive a custom Poké Stop in-game that features their winning photo.



A scene that could be yanked directly from Lavender Town, pkmngomatt let their Haunter show off its playful, joker spirit in a foggy, foreboding landscape. Thanks to this perfect choice in art direction and a Ghost-type buddy, pkmngomatt will have this photo appear on a custom Poké Stop in-game, and they’ll receive free tickets and travel to any Pokémon GO Fest event this year.

All that’s left now is the last round, the Go Create Challenge. Let your creativity guide your way! Send in your photos before the May 22nd deadline by using the appropriate hashtags and tagging Pokémon GO’s official social media accounts.

Congratulations to the winners of the Habitat Challenge, and good luck to all photo snapping enthusiasts hoping to make the top in in Pokémon GO’s Go Create Challenge!
