Introducing the Neo-One!

New Pokemon Snap will introduce the Neo-One, a floating vehicle you can safely capture pictures of Pokemon from! It doesn't seem to come with mechanics to learn, as it looks to simply move on its own.

The Research Camera is a basic item that will be given to you at the start of the game and will enable you to take photographs of the Pokemon around the course.

Unconfirmed / Deconfirmed Items

Pester Ball

The Pester Ball from the Original Pokemon Snap for the N64 will not be making a reappearance in New Pokemon Snap for the Nintendo Switch. Haruki Suzaki, the director for New Pokemon Snap, has said in an interview that the functionality of the Pester Ball to annoy Pokemon was reworked into the Fluffruit.

... we decided to add the role of the Pester Ball to the Fluffruit in New Pokemon Snap. Even though Fluffruit doesn't hurt when it hits a Pokemon, it'd make sense that some Pokemon don't like being hit by Fluffruit.
- Haruki Suzaki, New Pokemon Snap Director

Poke Flute

Another Item from the Original Pokemon Snap, the Poke Flute, has not been seen in gameplay yet.

It appears that the functionality of the Poke Flute of grabbing the Wild Pokemon's attention has been reworked into the Melody, while waking Sleeping Pokemon up can be achieved by throwing Fluffruit. It remains to be seen if the Poke Flute itself will appear in the game.
