In the last part of the official Gameplay trailer of the New Pokemon Snap, you will notice a man in the lab together with Professor Mirror, who looks very familiar.

His identity was not mentioned, but he looks strikingly similar to Todd Snap, the main character of the N64 Pokemon Snap. He might also be the “certain someone” who accompanied Phil on his way to Lental Region. What do you think?
