[[File:Pokemon GO 8 bit graphics.jpg|thumb|Pokémon in 8 bit in GO]]
{{bp|Niantic}} has added {{wp|Pixel art|8-bit graphics}} for {{bp|Pokémon GO}} for {{bp|April Fools' Day}} 2018.

Niantic has replaced the {{wp|Three-dimensional space|3D}} models usually seen in the {{bp|Pokédex}} and nearby tracker with 8-bit graphics. But, when tapping on a specific {{bp|Pokémon}} in the Pokédex, the 3D model will be displayed. Pokémon GO did not add {{bp|Shiny Pokémon|Shiny}} versions of the sprites. Players can still see the original animated 3D sprites on the overworld map, encounter screens, and in {{bp|Gym (GO)|gyms}}.

{{quote|Experience Pokémon GO like never before with cutting-edge 8-BIT GRAPHICS! Registering approximately twice the definition of 4K, the chunky squares of each pixel provide realistic detail and unbelievable definition. Your Pokédex will feel lifelike in ways previously unimagined on any handheld device ever created.|Pokémon GO}}
