Photograph Pokémon in their natural habitats by exploring lush scenery on unknown islands.
Seek out and photograph Pokémon in their natural environments in the New Pokémon SnapTM game, exclusive to the Nintendo SwitchTM system! Take photos with the NEO-ONE as you encounter and research active wild Pokémon. Unexpected expressions or behaviours may be observed—Pokémon patrolling their territory, playing, or lurking in out-of-the-way places.

Investigate the enigmatic Illumina phenomenon.

Visit the islands that comprise the Lental region. Some Pokémon and vegetation in this region will appear to have a special glow. Explore dense jungles, vast deserts, and other locations with Professor Mirror to learn more about these Pokémon! Your observations of Pokémon thriving in the wild could aid in unravelling the mystery of the Illumina phenomenon. Your Pokémon photos will be used to create your very own Pokémon Photodex!

Your favourite Pokémon photos can be saved, edited, and shared.

Save photos to your in-game personal album to edit and adjust them. When you finish a course, you can use Re-Snap mode to change the brightness, blur, zoom, and other aspects of your photo. Then, to add a personal touch, add stickers, frames, and filters. In-game*, you can share your favourite photos with family and friends. You can also see what types of photos other people are taking. Do you see something you like? Give out a Sweet! medal.

This new game brings the gameplay of the 1999 Pokémon Snap game for the Nintendo 64TM system to life on the Nintendo Switch system, with new islands to explore and new Pokémon to encounter!

As you research and explore unknown islands, photograph lively wild Pokémon in their natural habitats. Travel through a variety of environments such as beaches, jungles, and deserts in your trusty travel pod, the NEO-ONE, to capture previously unseen Pokémon behaviours. To attract Pokémon’s attention, you can even play a melody or toss them a delicious fluffruit. You can use the photos you take to create your own Pokémon Photodex!

Your photos are graded based on the Pokémon’s poses, size, and how directly they face you, among other factors. If you catch rare Pokémon behaviours, you might even get a four-star photo. These scores can be shared through in-game rankings*, allowing you to compare your shots to those of other Pokémon photographers from around the world.

Pokémon and vegetation have been seen to glow in the Lental region on occasion. Meet Professor Mirror and collaborate with him to solve the puzzle of the Illumina phenomenon. Your photos and observations could be crucial in learning more about this strange occurrence.

This game is a ROM for the Nintendo Switch. It is available in the following languages: Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and English!
