Phil Character Profile and Introduction | New Pokemon Snap (Switch)

New Pokemon Snap Phil
This is an introduction to Phil, a character in New Pokemon Snap for the Nintendo Switch. Find out who Phil is, as well as his role in the game!

Who is Phil?

From Outside the Lental Region (?)


The official site of New Pokemon Snap mentions that Phil joins the research team upon arriving in Lental Region. It seems like it is his first time visiting the region. He might be from somewhere outside Lental, but where could he be from?

Phil's Travel Companion

Professor Mirror and Todd Snap

It was also mentioned that Phil arrived in Lental with “certain someone”. Though they did not name who this travel companion, they look strikingly similar to Todd Snap from N64 Pokemon Snap, so perhaps the two share a connection.

Lental Region Research Team Member

Phil is one of the Lental Region's research team members, just like the protagonist that you will be playing as. Upon arriving at Lental Region, he decided to join the research team along with you, taking pictures of the region's ecology. He will accompany you in your adventure together with Professor Mirror's research assistant, Rita.

Your Rival

Unlike the previous Pokemon Snap game, you will have a rival, and Phil takes on that role. He is very competitive and will always try his best to best you in becoming the top research photographer. Don't give him any chance in beating you, and give it your best shot!
