Pokémon Snap is a game based on photography. Players must try to take good quality pictures of Pokémon.
Shortly after the game's release, Nintendo provided a service to print out photos from the game as stickers at certain stores for US$3. Blockbusters in America, Lawson in Japan, and Toys'R'Us and Myer in Australia all provided the service.
Todd has been summoned by Professor Oak to Pokémon Island in order to help Oak with a report on the island's Pokémon. Oak has just finished a report and needs pictures to accompany his findings. Riding in the Zero-One, Todd must travel around the island and get the pictures Professor Oak needs.
Starting a Professor Oak's research center, players may choose the course they want to play. The game is like a rail shooter, with the player unable to change their path.They can take up to 60 pictures on each level. After they finish, Professor Oak rates the player's pictures based on position, posing, clarity, and whether other Pokémon are in the shoot.
The game has only seven levels all together. However, some of them are locked away until the player uses the right item to open up the new level. Each one has a different environment and different Pokémon. The game contains 63 different types of Pokémon.
The Zero-One appeared as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
