How does the story of New Pokémon Snap work?

New Pokémon Snap’s story primarily follows a linear structure, with the game occasionally offering you the opportunity to tackle courses in any order you wish.

You progress through the story by completing a course, increasing your research level for a particular course, or photographing a specific item or Pokémon in a given course.

Your next objective will be explained in cutscenes, which usually occur after a photo evaluation, and in advice given by characters on the Lental region map, where you select which course you want to visit next.

Once you’ve unlocked a course, you’ll be able to visit it whenever you want, no matter where you are in the story. You can also continue to increase the research level of a course, meaning that if you want a break from the story, you can just sit back and take pictures.

For more information, including an estimate of how long it will take you to complete the game, check out our New Pokémon Snap length guide. There are also six new courses to unlock thanks to the New Pokémon Snap update, which launched in August 2021.

New Pokémon Snap Tutorial

Here you will find a complete list of all the objectives you must complete for the New Pokémon Snap story arranged in semi-chronological order, as it occasionally breaks linearity.

It is important to note that this section contains major spoilers for the entire game, so if you prefer to be surprised, we recommend that you skip this section.

Thanks to the New Pokémon Snap August 2021 update, there are now six courses that are not part of the overall story.

To make this tutorial easier to navigate, we have organized these targets under the name of the location they are connected to. This means that if the story requires you to play the night version of Florio Nature Park, for example, then this objective will be under the Florio Nature Park title.

Again, this section contains spoilers!

Tips and tricks for the new Pokémon Snap

Below are some tips and tricks you might encounter during your journey through the Lental region in New Pokémon Snap:

  • Take a variety of photos for each Pokémon you encounter. Since photos are categorized into one of four star categories and each Pokémon can have one image from each category in its Photodex entry, you’ll need to capture a variety of Pokémon behaviors to complete an entry. However, you won’t know the star rating of your photos until the Photo Rating, so be sure to take a collection of photos.
  • Increase the research level of a course. Each course, whether day or night, has a research level and increasing it will allow you to explore a slightly different version of the same course. Here you’ll find new and old Pokémon in new locations, which can make for interesting photo opportunities.
  • Pay close attention to your surroundings! Pokémon are hidden everywhere, from inside tree holes to behind bushes, so you have to pay attention to everything. Sometimes you may only get a glimpse of a Pokémon that can get close to the Neo-One by using Fluffruit.

  • Use Illumina Orbs in Crystablooms. These special flowers grow throughout the Lental region, and hitting one with an Illumina Orb can cause a Pokémon to perform a unique behavior or even cause a new Pokémon to appear. Take the time to explore each of them, at each level of investigation, to discover their secrets.
  • Throw Illumina Orbs at each Pokémon you encounter. Illumina Orbs can cause a Pokémon to display unusual behavior, but you’ll only know if a Pokémon is affected once you’ve thrown the orb.
  • Use Fluffruit to move Pokémon. You can’t physically move Pokémon in New Pokémon Snap, but you can use Fluffruit to direct them to new locations, which can cause an interesting event to occur.
  • Judge your throws carefully. It’s easy to go overboard or overshoot when throwing Fluffruit or Illumina Orbs, so be sure to judge the distance carefully or else you could miss a great photo opportunity.

  • Don’t miss your chance to scan! Be sure to scan your surroundings whenever prompted or else you might miss out on an alternative route through a course or a useful tip.
  • Don’t forget to look behind you! Your attention will most likely be focused on where the Neo-One is going and not where it’s been, but Pokémon will appear behind it and may even have some special behaviors for you to photograph.
  • Check out LenTalk Requests for tips! LenTalk Requests not only contain a variety of challenges for you to complete, but also tips on how to capture the weird and wonderful behavior that Pokémon from the Lental region can exhibit.

  • Feel free to finish a course whenever you want. Completing a course before reaching its natural end point will not cause you to skip the photo assessment. This means you can play a course simply to photograph a single Pokémon and still earn Expedition Points.
  • Don’t limit yourself to photographing Pokémon. You’re also in the Lental region to investigate the island’s history and local fauna, so if you see a Crystabloom or ancient ruin, be sure to take a photo. Collecting these images will help you fully complete your Photodex.
  • If you don’t remember the goal of your current story, check out the on-screen tips. Especially on the course selection screen, these tips will give you a little reminder of what to do next.

Good luck in your Pokémon photography quest!
