galaxy s20 + screen dims during open app games

So I play pokemon go a lot. I recently bought this device last week...I love it so far but I cannot figure out how to disable the auto dimming when I have my pokemon go app running. For instance I will keep the app on and running full screen and place into my pocket when I am doing things or I will place my phone on its side while driving (that way I do not have to exit the application and my bluetooth go-tcha device can run without me having to constantly re pair it with my phone) and the screen just automatically dims! I have tried changing the screen timeout, etc, smart stay, nothing works. once the phone goes in a pocket, turns to its side or is placed somewhere for a limited extended period of time the screen dims over the game until I grab it and face it towards me again. I do not understand this feature and I am wondering if it only is for games that this happens. I would greatly appreciate any help because I hate this feature.
