Pokémon Snap was made available to Wii™ console owners as a Virtual Console™ title in December 2007. With its rerelease, players can now share the pictures they've taken via WiiConnect 24™. Show off your best photos to friends around the world!
Pokémon are shy creatures by nature, and getting definitive proof of their existence is tough! Pokémon Snap shows just how hard it can be; Professor Oak has asked you to track down the elusive Pokémon and take photos of them in their natural habitat.
Traveling through a variety of environments, including caves, rivers, and jungles, you have to have a keen eye and a quick shutter finger to catch all the Pokémon in action. Professor Oak will reward you not simply for capturing Pokémon on film, but also for centering them entirely in frame or waiting for them to do something special for the camera.
Professor Oak knows how difficult your task will be, so he's thankfully handed over a few items to help you lure out certain reclusive Pokémon. Throw Apples into open areas to get Pokémon to step into view, or blow a few notes into the Poké Flute to wake dozing Pokémon from their slumber.
