New Pokémon Snap

Pokémon Snap back from the 90s! (Spoilers Ahead!)

Welcome avid photographers and Pokémon fans, we have something fun and refreshing!
New Pokémon Snap!
Come take an adventure across the Lental Region and explore the surprises of Pokémon big and small!

As a child from the 90s, when the N64 was the big new game console with it’s weird and wacky controller, I was full tilt hyped for New Pokémon Snap. This game was boasting some of the best graphics to come to the Pokémon franchise yet, as well as new stories. With the original Pokémon Snap, in it’s time, was not only one of the best graphic games out at that time, it was also exciting for the generation growing up beside Pokémon. We all thought the graphics were absolutely amazing as well as the Pokémon in it!

The New Pokémon Snap game did not disappoint as the game started up with the soft tease of music. The lull’s of Pokémon chatter mixing in with the environment. With the Nintendo Switch docked, receiving visuals in 1080p, the game was bright and colorful. The beautiful aspects of Pokémon are the colors and the vibrancy of those colors, so if your in docked mode or in handheld mode, the colors are fantastic.

Nostalgia comes into play with New Pokémon Snap, very heavily. As the music chimes up and the story progresses, you are reminded of the days when Pokémon Snap was new and fresh to everyone. Discovering where Pokémon ran and hid, or would play surprises on your character (Todd at the time). Reporting back to Professor Oak and showing him the discoveries in 64 bit that you had made, impressing or not.
As the game proceeded and you are introduced to the Pokémon Professor Mirror, the memories of Professor Oak washing in. Experience all the excitement that Todd Snap had when he first met the new world of Pokémon.

It’s Todd!

When your done learning the ‘ropes’ of Snap, you’ll be able to go out for your ”first” Safari! Grab your camera and your wits and get ready to SNAP SNAP SNAP!


Make your way through the green hills of the fields and lakes, be quick or you’ll miss your legendary!
Low lands where Pokémon come to make a home for their babies, or tuck away for a peaceful sleep. Find your common normal and grass types playing in the fields!

Venture through the jungle, fighting off Aipoms and Airados.


Experience different seasons of the year as your make your way through the enchanted forest. Find a Pokémon as enchanted as the Forest hidden within!


Catch a ride on a Lapras along the reef and catch a sneak peek of someone surfing!

Try to stay cool while the Charmanders get HOT HOT HOT!

What’s that feather?


Fight your way through Swinubs to stay warm! Or steal the presents from the DeliBird!

Be quiet and observant as you make your way through the Cave Ruins and try to pet the puppy!

Put together the mystery of the meteor attack, and try to find the last Illumina Pokémon! After you’ve tracked your way through these amazing zones and found new routes to new faces, face your own truth in what and who you are.
Pokémon. They can just tell when your a good person with good intentions.

All in all, New Pokémon Snap is an amazing game, as always from the creators of Pokémon. This was a nostalgic game to play, and had some of the most beautiful legendary surprises. Besides that, New Pokémon Snap teaches us that all Pokémon are special, and not just the Legendaries and Mythical types.
I had such an amazing time playing this game on and off stream, I highly recommend to anyone who loves to look at cute things! This game is full of all the cuteness!

Buh-Bye for now!

25 Years of Pokemon

Happy Pokemon Day!

Pokémon Snap: AHH SNAP!

Let’s go back to the year 1999 when I was just a youngling learning the ways of the Nintendo 64 and all of its glory. There came out a wonderful game of such impact that I didn’t even know that to this day, I still would be gushing in awe that I still remember and love it soo much!

Time for a trip to the beach

Here you are looking at this game and not knowing what is about to do down. Insert the cartridge to get that satisfying feel, see the beautiful N64 logo floating and cutting to “POKEMON ISLAND” without foreknowledge your about to go down to witness Pokémon like we have never before. Skipping ahead past the start screen, just to get to the best part of getting ported down a track and your ZERO-ONE pod that goes to the “GOAL-GATE” to exit the current level, here we will sit back and whip out the “Poke-Cam” out and begin our great journey of capturing great almost amazing picture’s. The first Pokémon we encounter on the beach is a “Pidgey” and not just one but almost a whole flock. Equipped only with just a roll of 60 pictures before our “FILM” ( I have put the word “FILM” in quotations for the reason that whoever reads this knows that we used to have a physical form of photography and not just digital media and yes even in a video game where they could’ve just given us all the space.) would run out so making sure to take only the best and identifying pics to add to our new and growing collection.

All of the Easter Eggs!

For all those that think that this is just a snap and go….. let me tell you that you will be pleasantly surprised for this ALL MIGHT of a game! Get ready for a Detroit slam to just blindside you. The amount of work you must put in to figure out that every level that you will play has so many different Pokémon interactions. Apples, pester balls, and ZEE Poke-Flute, these items become your best friend to get to all the awesome and special interactions on every level that we travel to. My favorite one has to be the Magikarp to Gyarados evolve. We first start off by trying to knock a Magikarp at a Mankey with a pester ball that will then hit it over to the dancing Gravelers, proceed to throw another pester ball to knock it over to the waterfall, where it jumps in and out pops out a Gyarados!! OOOOO buddy my first time doing this is still one of my top moments in this beautiful game. Take your time to enjoy the fact that you are taking pictures of Pokémon in an almost pure state free and wild!

New Pokémon snap!

OMG!!! 22 long years and here in April. We will be receiving something so grand yet so majestic to tantalize our imagination’s as new and veterans return to take a plethora of such great pictures. The game will take place on three different islands! We shall be also be figuring out a mysterious glow that is on the Pokémon “The Illumina Phenomenon”. Lental region is looking to be the best place for us to pick back up where our “PHOTO POKE- JOURNMILISM” began. My only reservation for this is that I hope they make so many different interactions that every playthrough is fresh not just a copy and paste of the last one. My excitement is through the roof so hold on to your butts for this new endeavor!
