'Pokemon GO' gamers will be able to capture their favourite Pokemon using the new snapshot function.

'Pokemon GO' has landed its own snapshot feature.

Niantic has confirmed gamers will be able to take pictures of their favourite Pokemon in storage using the new tool whilst looking at their profile page or by clicking the camera icon.

It works by positioning the Pokemon in the perfect frame and swiping to catch its attention.

Meanwhile, The Pokemon Company recently announced the launch of its own scholarship.

The world-famous company - which developed the record-breaking game - has established a grant in order to pay for two second year MA students to attend the Royal College of Art (RCA) in the UK.

The scholarship offers various perks to the lucky recipients, including the chance to visit the Pokemon Company's studios in Japan, where iconic characters such as Pikachu were created.

Pokemon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara explained: "'Pokemon 'evolved as a brand by embracing new technologies and collaborating with partners from new fields that range from data communication systems and geolocation-related technologies to partners in fashion and art."

Meanwhile, Dr Rathna Ramanathan, the dean of RCA's school of communication, has hailed the concept of the scholarship, describing it as an "excellent opportunity".

Dr Rathna said: "The Pokemon Scholarship is an excellent opportunity for our students to consider their emerging practices in relation to the context of the world's issues, concerns and contexts."
