Poke’ Finder

All around the region, you’ll find seemingly random areas where you are able to whip out your Poke’ Finder and snap pictures of the Pokemon that appears there. You’re essentially given a little taste of Pokemon Snap nostalgia. You’re able to upgrade your Poke’ Finder when you generate a certain number of “thumps ups” when people like your pictures. These likes are based on a certain criteria:

• Capturing the Pokemon head-on
• Getting up close to the Pokemon
• Catching a rare scene
• Finding a rare Pokemon

With that said, there are only limited places where you can snap pictures of Pokemon. It would be a good idea to revisit some spots as you may run into rare Pokemon and this way you will have an easier time upgrading the version of your Poke’ Finder. You may also save the final shot to your SD card!

Here are the photo spots on each island as well as the Pokemon that may appear there. (*) indicates day time, (º) is for night time, and any bold Pokemon names are rare sightings.
