New Pokémon Snap (Japanese: New ポケモンスナップ New Pokémon Snap) is an upcoming spin-off Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch. It is a sequel to the original Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo 64. The game is set for a worldwide release on April 30, 2021, and will be playable in nine languages: Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

It was announced during Pokémon Presents on June 17, 2020.


The player is asked by Professor Mirror to photograph Pokémon in their natural habitats across Lental, an archipelago region with a variety of different ecosystems. The professor and his assistant Rita guide the player across the islands of Lental and inform about the research team's ecological survey. Phil, a boy who recently arrived in Lental and has a rivaling relation toward the player, also joins the research team.

When arriving at a research site, the NEO-ONE vehicle will automatically steer along the route, allowing for the player to take photos in all directions. There are various tools available that interact with the environment. Fluffruit can be used to catch the attention of nearby Pokémon. Additionally, the player can use Illumina orbs, items developed by Professor Mirror and related to the Illumina phenomenon unique to the Lental region. Illumina orbs can sometimes create unusual effects, such as changing the color of fire that Pokémon emit to blue instead of red. The player also has the option to play a melody (Japanese: メロディ) and search the surroundings (Japanese: サーチ). As courses are being researched, their research level increases, allowing for Pokémon to exhibit different expressions and behaviors.

Pictures of Lental's wild Pokémon are evaluated with one to four stars by Professor Mirror, indicating how rare the behavior displayed is. One picture from each star category can be added to the corresponding page of the Photodex, an album designed to display photos and additional information of wild Pokémon. Photos taken during expeditions can also be saved to a personal album that is distinct from the Photodex. These photos can be edited in terms of brightness, blur, zoom, and other aspects, or added stickers, frames, and filters. With a Nintendo Switch Online membership, photos can also be shared online, and awarded Sweet! Medals (Japanese: りんごメダル Apple Medal) by other players.


The game is set to feature more than 200 different Pokémon.

These Pokémon have been shown in prerelease footage and screenshots of the game.
