New Pokémon Snapfor Nintendo Switch

Get ready for New Pokémon Snap, an all-new adventure for Nintendo Switch inspired by the classic Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap.

Explore beaches, jungles, deserts, and more as you photograph over 200 Pokémon and investigate the mysterious Illumina phenomenon in New Pokémon Snap.


Explore the Beautiful Lental Region

Welcome to the Lental region, whose islands hold everything from dense jungles to vast deserts.

Throughout this archipelago, you’ll photograph untouched nature and plenty of wild Pokémon that thrive in Lental’s natural expanses.

Investigate the Mysterious Illumina Phenomenon

Pokémon and vegetation in Lental have sometimes been seen to glow. This is known as the Illumina phenomenon, which is unique to the Lental region in New Pokémon Snap.

At the request of Lental’s own Professor Mirror, you’ll venture from island to island on an ecological survey, floating safely along in your trusty pod, the NEO-ONE, as you photograph Lental Pokémon and their habitats to uncover the truth behind the Illumina phenomenon.

Build Your Own Pokémon Photodex

Professor Mirror will evaluate your photos. Your scores will be based on your subjects’ poses, how large they appear, how directly they’re facing you, and their placement within the frame.

As you take photos and keep researching, you may get to see Pokémon look and behave in different ways than before.

Take lots of photos, get them evaluated, and keep the best shots to build your own Photodex in New Pokémon Snap!
