I'm not really into Pokémon games but I loved the original Snap on N64. I think wildlife photography is an awesome game concept and I am excited to see what weird secrets this one has. In the N64 game, Oak was kind of an rear end in a top hat judge so I'm hoping the new guy is more lenient with his standards.

It comes out a week from today!


On a side note, I would like to apologize to the Pokémon community for misspelling "Pokémon" in the title. I tried to include the punctuation, but the forum said it was an invalid character. Please do not take it as an attack against Nintendo, GameFreak, the Pokémon Company, Bandai Namco, or the millions of Pokémon fans around the world.

I haven’t bought a Pokémon game since Black but I’m on the fence with this. I got the first one for Christmas ’99 and I replayed the hell out of it but I dunno if it has enough content to warrant $60...

Yeah I doubt it's going to last that long. Maybe 8 hours if we're lucky? I prefer short games but I definitely know I'm overpaying. I just wanted something new on the Switch and I figured it wouldn't ever go on sale.

it was short but it was exploding with charm and good music/presentation. in that gameplay the pokemon were just kind of wandering around randomly and the music sucked

I shouldnt be so crabby about it, sixty bucks to hang out with my favorite pokemon is reasonable. hopefully it’s sick

You can't take it with you, you know.


my wife's grandmother has a working N64 in her basement with pokemon snap and my two year old could actually sort of play it? he really liked seeing all the fun pokemon, anyway. might pick this up just for his pre-supper gaming half hour

it's kind of nuts that this thing is real. everyone was certain there was gonna be a pokemon snap 2 with gold/silver pokemon. and oh they missed the boat, surely the gamecube will get it. well, the gamecube flopped so it's understandable, with the success of the wii, they would be FOOLS not to make pokemon snap 2. oh my god, the wiiu literally was designed to be a pokemon snap machine, it'll be one of the first big games they announce,

The first one is basically a really unique puzzle game. It will be interesting to see if they're able to recreate that sort of feel.

yeah a lot of frustration is that gamefreak abandons a lot of well received mechanics (real loving bitter about mega evolution being dropped in lieu of gigantamax) from one game to the other so going in on blind is a different experience

Idk how many areas this one has but they all have a night version/a bunch of side routes and the pokemon behavior changes depending on your "research level" for each area. This overview trailer makes the game look very appealing to me

The photo editing stuff looks fun and if I'm remembering correctly there are like weekly themed contests and stuff where you can upload photos and have people vote on them? Idk, could use confirmation on whether I just dreamed that or what. But if it's true there's probably some fun content there for the creative Imp. I'm looking forward to checking it out eventually but I think I have too much gaming on my plate right now to pick it up next week

oh poo poo i'm firmly in the latter boat, nothing since sapphire. i was kind of excited for it until i heard ppl complaining about it. if its just old 3ds mechanics or w/e going away then i am definitely going to buy it.



new pokemon snap is really good btw. i was a little worried it'd lose some charm with the extra 600 pokemon i've never seen before but no, it's still great

people complained because its basically just a slightly better looking 3ds game, still all the same animations and stuff and they cut a bunch of pokemon to be added back with dlc. so if you haven't played the 3ds games you won't care but if you have you might be disappointed in how it looks and plays
