Pokemon Go API – Photobomb Exclusive API

This post talks about the newest Pokemon Go API, the Photobomb Exclusive Pokemon API on PoGoAPI.net.

What are Photobomb Exclusive Pokemon?

Some Pokemon are only available to be caught after you have taken a photo with your Pokemon and they photobomb it. Once you have a photo that has been photobombed the Pokemon that photobombed you will appear in the world once you close the camera app in Pokemon Go.

Typically you will only be photobombed once a day but some events will boost this number and add other Pokemon that can photobomb you. For example on community days typically you will be able to be photobombed by the community day Pokemon.
