A brand new Pokémon adventure!

Our photo guide to playing New Pokémon Snap

When you take a photo, certain criteria are determining to obtain a maximum score: the framing of the photo, the posture of the photographed Pokémon, its size and viewing angle . You will also be able to get bonus points by including other Pokémon in your photo, and having an exceptional background.

In addition, each photo is assigned, in addition to the score, one to four stars depending on the rarity of the behavior Pokémon observed . For example, a photo of a Pikachu looking at the horizon will have one star, while if you can catch it when it throws a lightning attack, this photo will have four. You will therefore need 4 photos, one of each, to complete the page of a Pokémon in your Photodex.

Note that the scores earned with your photos will make you increase your level of exploration of the place, thus allowing you to observe new behaviors of Pokémon because they feel more confident with you. It may well be that some are happy to see you again and even welcome you with affection!

To trigger the different behaviors of Pokémon living in the area you are exploring, you will be able to throw tender apples , light orbs, play music , but some will also react to the noise of your radar . Note that the main function of the latter is to quickly locate nearby Pokémon, and places of interest to collect such as ancient ruins.

Finally, you can edit your photos and share them with the whole world! You will be able to brighten the image, zoom, increase the focal aperture, add frames and stickers, etc. in order to create unforgettable and unique photos.

Although the concept of this game is simple and a bit redundant, as you just have to let yourself be transported in the Neo One and take pictures, we quickly got caught up in the game during our test! Indeed it is interesting to redo the same course by discovering each time new Pokémon behaviors, from the most aggressive to the most adorable!

In addition, you will discover a mysterious phenomenon occurring at night in certain corners of the region called Lumina.
