Here is some information about Pokemon Snap:
Have you ever wanted to see Pikachu in its natural habitat? In Pokémon Snap, you’ll capture many Pokémon found in the wild – not with a Poké Ball, but with a camera!
Some shots are easy, like photographing Pikachu relaxing on the beach, but others are much more difficult, like snapping Pikachu on the back of a rare flying Pokémon! In Pokémon Snap, you are assigned by Professor Oak, the world famous Pokémon teacher. It needs lots of shots taken on Pokémon Island, where you’ll traverse six fascinating environments in search of all the Pokémon you can find.
Pidgey will fly over your shoulder on the beach. Diglett will appear in the tunnel. A group of Charmander will pass by the Volcano. And that’s only in the first three environments! Wait until you see all the animated Pokemon in the River, Cave, and Valley. When you return to Professor Oak’s lab, he’ll rate your photos based on several merits: Did you capture the Pokemon in a great pose? Does its size fill the picture frame? Is it centered in the plane? And did you photograph other Pokémon of the same type in the background?
Taking photos on Pokémon Island is great fun, but it’s also a real test of your photography skills! You still have to catch them all – this time with a good eye and a camera snapshot!
