The New Pokemon Snap Professor

Just like any other Pokemon game, the Lental Region also has a dedicated Professor that will guide you in your adventure. But unlike all other Professors, this one is not named after a tree. While there's no official explanation on why his name is Mirror, it can be inferred that it is because a camera has a mirror lens and it is more appropriate than a tree name.

Research Expert on the Lental Region

Professor Mirror is a Lental Region research expert that will analyze each Photodex Photo you take. He will evaluate each Photodex Photo you have and score them from one to four stars. Four-stars is the highest score you can obtain on a photo, and you'll want to aim for the highest score possible. Make sure to get the whole Pokemon in the frame looking nice and big to get a high score!

How Professor Mirror Evaluates the Photodex

Based on Pokemon Poses

He will score each photo based on Pose, Size, Direction, Placement, other Pokemon included in the shot, as well as the Background. The nicer shot you have, the higher score you get!

Based on Type of Pokemon

Players will have chances to take photos of some Legendary and Mythical Pokemon. All of this might also affect Professor Mirror's decision on what kind of score a Photodex Photo will receive.

Based on Pokemon Behavior

At higher levels, Pokemon may display different expressions and behaviors; capturing that moment may give you a higher score. The total score you will get in each Photo has an equivalent number of stars, indicating how common or rare the behavior of the Pokemon shown. Four-star photos are the most difficult to snap. But with all of these photography tips from Professor Mirror, you’ll be able to snap a great Photo!
