Professor Mirror and Todd Snap

It was also mentioned that Phil arrived in Lental with “certain someone”. That ”certain someone" is none other than Todd Snap! Todd Snap is the original main character from the N64 Pokemon Snap who now acts as Phil's mentor.

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 give his all to best you in becoming the top research photographer.

However, your rivalry won't have an effect on the actual gameplay at all and you won't really have to go against each other. In fact, Phil will contribute to sending you LenTalk Requests to help you get the best snaps!
