New Pokémon Snap, what is it?
New Pokémon Snap is a first person photography adventure game where your goal is to snap a photo of each Pokémon in the game in their natural habitat. You need to be vigilant and patient to find them all and to take beautiful pictures of each of them. In this game you can travel different streets / paths aboard a Neo One, a type of self-guided car that you can use to take photos comfortably with your Exploreflex. Neo OneExploreflex This car moves from point A to point B which has been defined in advance. Once you arrive, you will be automatically teleported to the teacher who will consult and assess the photos taken during your exploration. To take pictures, you have to move the camera 360 ° with the two sticks. Then try to point the visor at the Pokémon you want so that the focus is on it. The name will then be displayed on the screen. Finally, you need to make sure that you frame the Pokémon by adjusting your camera one final time: the Exploreflex before pressing A to confirm the shot. To properly frame a Pokémon, try to place it completely in the frame and as far in the center as possible. The more these criteria are met, the better the photo will be. Be careful though, you will be limited to 72 photos per exploration. When you reach this limit, the level will end and you will have to restart an exploration to continue your adventure.
At the end of each session, you’ll need to choose your favorite photo for each Pokémon encountered. An evaluation of each of the selected photos by the teacher follows. Six different criteria are used to evaluate you. CriterionDefinitionPose – This score is high when the Pokémon is in an interesting pose. This score is high when the subject is in close-up. Angle of ViewThis score is high if the subject is rotated towards the camera the photoMore PokémonMore There are Pokémon in the photo, the higher the rating in the background. The more interesting the background, the better the rating. Keep all of these criteria in mind when taking a photo. The rating determines the color of the stars associated with each of your photos.

Rating in stars
This is certainly not intuitive, but the number of stars associated with your photos has nothing to do with their quality. In fact, we must understand the star system more as an indication of the rarity of the context in which the Pokémon was photographed. In our picture above, for example, a Lakmécygnus photographed in water is worth 1 star, while a Lakmécygnus photographed in flight is worth 3 stars regardless of the quality of the photos. Note that in order to 100% complete the game, you need to photograph all of the Pokémon in the game in four different contexts. This corresponds to the four stars on the Photodex pages. So keep an eye out for unusual behaviors or situations.
Finally, in relation to the progress of the game, this is done via experience bars. When you have completed a level, each score from each photo presented to the teacher is added to a result. This result corresponds to an amount of experience added to the exploration level for the area you just visited. When an area changes levels, several changes can be observed: New Pokémon can appear Pokémon in the area can behave differently New roads can open in the area New levels can be unlocked
