This is a guide to getting started in New Pokemon Snap for the Nintendo Switch. This guide will cover tips on starting the game, such as how to take a photo, how to get a high Photodex Photo score, and more!
At the beginning of the story, eight style of appearances will be presented to you. Choose one to be your main character to proceed in the story. While you cannot change the character you have chosen after starting, there's no information yet as to whether or not you can change your clothes and accessories later on, but having those options would sure be a lot of fun!
To explore the Lental Region, you will need to ride an auto-driving floating pod called the Neo-One. Travel to the research site, and once you arrive, the Neo-One will steer you where you need to go. Don't forget to take plenty of photos of Pokemon as you explore the Lental Region!
By researching each of these courses and discovering more Pokemon, your Research Level increases which will allow you to unlock even more courses!
To get a high score for your Photodex Photo, first, you need to know how Professor Mirror evaluates each photo. Usually, he will score each photo based on Pose, Size, Direction, Placement, other Pokemon included in the shot, as well as the Background. However, there are also some other factors that he might consider in scoring your photo. Check the guide below for more info.
Other than receiving a score for every photo you take, stars are also rewarded to photos that exhibit their subjects performing rare poses! Learn about each of the criteria for Professor Mirror's scoring system!
One of the newest features of New Pokemon Snap is the Re-Snap ability. This feature allows players to edit and adjust the photos they have already taken. You can change the brightness, focus, blur, and also zoom on photos saved in your album after completing a course.
Not just that, there are more ways to edit them! You can make your photos stand out even more by adding stickers, frames, and filters just like the image above. This will allow you to add a bit of extra flare to the images you share online.
You can share your photos online and test your skill as a Pokemon Photographer, provided you have a Nintendo Switch Online membership. Once you are a member, you can then compete in global leaderboards with other Pokemon photographers around the world in various rankings!
You can also view photos of other Pokemon Photographers and show your approval by giving them a Sweet! medal. If a photo gets a lot of Sweet! medals, it has the potential to become the most popular shot!
Why just have your Photodex in game when you can make a real one! With New Pokemon Snap, you can now take home the photos you take in the Lental region to make a real-world collection of your favorite Pokemon.
