Mew's picture

Are you hav'n trouble getting a picture of Mew?
Well then I'm the 1 u need to look 2. All you have to do is wait for Mew 2 come.
Then throw pester balls and/or apples at him. Then his pattern will change. He'll start coming towards you.
While he's doing this, throw more balls and apples at him. Then it'll look like he's racin' u, But this time he won't be in his guardball anymore.
I hope I've helped you finish the game(BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET A PICTURE OF MEW).

On Pokemon Snap In the Cave level after you see Jigglepuff being "picked on"
by Koffing you will see a Zubat with a Pikachu after you get closer to the
Zubat try throwing the pester balls at it over and over. It's really hard to
hit the Zubat but after a while (might be a long while) the Zubat will drop
Pikachu!! Then Pikachu falls down. Don't worry, you can take your time
positioning the camara to take the picture of Pikachu cause he falls down
very slowly! Why? 'Cause he has about half a dozen ballons tied around him!!!
This makes him fall slowly as if the ballons were a parachute! After you get
a quick pic. of pikachu quickly play your poke`flute to release Articuno from
his egg, then he will fly over to pikachu and pikachu will be on his b..


Keep throwing balls at him to be able to take a picture.

Personal Pika Pic!

I know how you can get an insane picture of Pikachu worth up to 8000 points! You know how Pikachu helps hatch Articuno?
Make sure Pikachu is off of Zubat. After you make Articuno hatch, use your C-buttons to look everywhere as it'll slow you down. (Get a couple good pics of Articuno in if you want.) Once you slow down, look back--Articuno should pick up Pikachu onto it's back.Fast Forward just a bit and get your camera ready. Pikachu should get real close to you before passing you. When he's close you snap your pics! Make sure you get as much of Pikachu as you can in the photo. Prof. Oak should give you a bunch of points unless you did it wrong.
If you don't understand what I'm talking about, look "8000-point Pikachu" up on youtube--they'll clarify what I just said.


When you reach rainbow cloud, Mew is the only Pokemon there. At first it is in a pink bubble that goes back and forth in front of you, but you can't take a picture of when it is in the bubble or the picture will come up as ???. To get Mew out of the pink bubble you must hit the bubble with apples or pesterballs, Mew will disappear then reappear in the pink bubble two more times so just hit it again. Then Mew will come at you in yellow bubbles and all you have to do is hit the bubble again, this time Mew will come out of the bubble and head for a bubble in front of you. This is a nice picture to get. BUT... To get an even better and closer picture you must throw pesterballs at Mew and hit Mew (apples don't work very well for they will bounce off of Mew blocking that perfect picture). Mew ..

Throw a pester ball at them and they will evolve.You might have to try a few times but it's worth it.I got 8000.

In the River level, when you come up to Slowpoke, throw apples to make him move over to where the wooden Shellder sign is. There will be a round dirt circle.
When Slowpoke steps into the circle, he will turn around, stick his tail into the water, and will evolve into Slowbro. Good Luck.
In the Valley level, when you come up to the Staryu, take pictures and it will begin to circle you. The second Staryu will do the same.
When you come up to the whirlpool, throw some apples into it. The Staryu will go into the whirlpool, and will come out as Starmie.

Flying Pikachu - Cave Level. After you have gotten Pikachu down from the Zubat[it will be balloon pikachu], play the Poké Flute to get the Articuno out of the egg. When you go into the room where the Jigglypuffs are singing (if you helped them out earlier in the level), turn around quickly and you should see Pikachu flying around on Articuno. Snap some pictures of that.

in the river level to get a gyarados this is what you have to do the first magikarp you see speed up with your throtle and throw a couple pester balls and he will fly backward and be caught by mankey and then mankey would throw him away way away then when you get to the waterfall and the three golems look on the right side from the golems and the magikarp will be their then throw a pester ball at it then he will go into the water then into the waterfall and evolve into a gyrados and then pop-out (remeber take a picture or all be lost)if you want extra points off the picture throw a pester ball and he will fire a hydro pump out-wourd.

Pokemon galore!

To get dragonite you need to go to the place with the squrrtle in the beginning and soon you will go to this one spot where you will hopefully see dragonair or dratini which are quite rare and you have to throw an apple at it.
To get arcanine you go to the volcano and soon near the end look to the very right where the craters are and a growlithe should be somewhere over there hit it in a crater of lava and it will evolve just like charmeleon does into charizard.

Good Beach Pics!

You know how Snorlax is asleep in the Beach course? Well, use your Pokeflute near it and it'll wake up. However, these pics won't be worth all that much. So, set your Pokeflute to the third song, get close, and snap! Try to get as much of Snorlax in as you can. When you show this to Professor Oak, he will give you 1,200 points for the pose! If you get close, you will get good size, adding more points, and get it in the middle of the frame to double the score (obviously). So, you just took a Snorlax picture worth over 2,400 points!
Also, near the beginning of the course, there is a Pikachu standing there happily. However, if you lead it to the surfboard, when you snap it, it will be a Surfboard Pikachu! Also, after you make Scyther come out of the grass, there will be 2 Pikachu..

Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres

Do you remember the egg things in the Tunnel, Volcano, and Cave? To hatch the yellow egg, throw an apple at Pikachu when it's in front of the egg for Zapdos, and knock the white egg with a fire pattern into the lava with an apple or Pester Ball for Moltres, and the 2 Jynx will hatch the sky blue egg for Articuno.

Baseball hat Mankey

In the river canyon area, there are 4 Mankeys throughout. The first Mankey is just before the fist set of Geodudes. The second Mankey is on the left side of the river just after you see the first Golem. You will see the third Mankey on your right just before you go down the steep hill. The last Mankey is on the right(it's the one you have to hit with the squirtle to get to the next area). You must use the pester ball to knock down the first three Mankeys then use the squirtle to knock down the last Mankey. When you get to the button that opens the gate to the next area, you will see a Mankey with a baseball hat on.
Hitting the Mankeys with the pester ball is very hard to do and I was only able to get the Mankey with the hat one time. So good luck and happy shooting.
