The concept of photography is also present in the [[Pokémon anime]], first appearing in ''[[EP040|The Battling Eevee Brothers]]'', where [[Misty's Psyduck]] took a picture of {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}}. [[Todd Snap]] debuted in ''[[EP055|Pokémon Paparazzi]]'', which later inspired the release of Pokémon Snap. In the episode, {{TRT}} hired photographer Todd Snap to "capture" {{AP|Pikachu}}, not realizing that Todd meant to capture Pikachu on film. Todd appears in a number of subsequent episodes, in which he tries to photograph other Pokémon, including the {{pkmn2|Legendary}} {{p|Articuno}}.
In ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'', a {{p|Fearow}} soared overhead with a camera attached to its neck. This camera was used by {{OBP|Mewtwo|original seriesM01}} in search of worthy {{pkmn|Trainer}}s to summon to the [[New Island]]. Photography also appeared in ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'', where a [[Block Bot]] took pictures of Ash and his friends for passport IDs that give them access to facilities in [[LaRousse City]].
In ''[[AG103|A Cacturne for the Worse]]'', [[Harley]] was shown to have an {{wp|instant camera}}. He took a picture of {{an|May}} and posted it on his scrapbook.
{{an|Trevor}} is another Pokémon photographer appearing in the anime. In ''[[XY086|A Legendary Photo Op!]]'', he visited [[Mt. Molteau]] to take a picture of the Legendary Pokémon {{p|Moltres}}, having previously photographed the other two [[Legendary birds]].
In ''[[SM003|Loading the Dex!‎]]'', Ash obtained a [[Rotom Pokédex]], which has a camera function, from {{an|Professor Kukui}}. Throughout ''[[Pokémon the {{series|Series: Sun & Moon}}]]'', {{Rotom}} is often shown taking pictures of [[wild Pokémon]] performing activities described in Pokédex entries. It also likes to capture important moments of Ash's {{pkmn|journey}}, such as Ash receiving a [[Z-Crystal]].
In ''[[SM105|Showdown on Poni Island!]]'', {{an|Lillie}} started taking pictures of the Pokémon at [[Poni Island]] while exploring.
