New Pokémon Snap guides – Polygon
New Pokémon Snap is all about taking pictures of Pokémon, adding new Pokémon, and improving upon the Nintendo 64 classic.
In the Lental region, there’s a mysterious phenomenon occurring with Pokémon: they glow. The region seems to have special large, glowing Pokémon with special energy, dubbed Illumina Pokémon. As you learn about Pokémon and the areas they inhabit, you have to help Professor Mirror figure out what the deal is with Illumina Pokémon and the history behind them.
Our guides will help you find all the Pokémon on the different Lental region islands, as well as figure out the best way to photograph Illumina Pokémon and use items and tools like Illumina Orbs, Fluffruit, scanning, and music .
Interact with Pokémon to get poses
Using tools like glowing Illumina Orbs and tasty Fluffruit, you can get Pokémon to pose and react differently than they would normally. You can also run scans on the area and play music for Pokémon, which may dance or cheer once they hear a fun rhythm.
Take photos of the powerful Illumina Pokémon
Each area in Lental has its very own Illumina Pokémon, which serves as a powerful guardian. These Pokémon are not only huge, but some of them are hard to photograph, since they’ll hide and try to avoid you. For that, we have boss guides for every one in every region.
