Take a Selfie with Bulbasaur in Snapchat’s Newest Pokemon Filter

In celebration of Pokemon Day tomorrow (the anniversary day in which the franchise first released in Japan), social media application Snapchat has decided to include a filter dedicated to the first ever Pokemon introduced: Bulbasaur.

Evidenced in a Tweet posted by online publication Serebii earlier today, the filter can only be used once you face your smartphone’s inner camera and allow the app to read your beautiful visage. Provided you’ve downloaded Snapchat’s latest update, the filter should appear alongside your other usual options if you’re located in the United States.

The Bulbasaur doesn’t do a whole lot to change your appearance, as all it does is add a crown on your head and make your eyes gray, though it is neat should you open your mouth. Doing so will trigger the Pokemon to unleash its signature move, Razer Leaf, adding even more leaves atop your head.

This isn’t the first time that Nintendo and Snapchat have collaborated together to release a filter on the platform, as last August fans were treated to a surprise Pikachu filter that allowed them to look just like the electric mouse, ears and all.
