    Learning how to take the perfect shot in New Pokémon Snap might take some practice, but this guide should help speed things up a bit.

    Using the survey camera in New Pokémon Snap is quite simple, although capturing the perfect photograph isn't always that simple. In addition to understanding photo composition and the way the game sorts photos, players also need to learn how to make the most of the tools and items at their disposal.



    The more players access the New Pokémon Snap, the more items and upgrades they will unlock. Knowing when and how to use them is extremely important, as is understanding when not to use them. Fortunately, these are things players will learn during their journey, though anyone looking to save a little time would do well to do a little research on the subject first.

    What makes a good photograph in New Pokémon Snap?

    After being submitted to Professor Mirror, the photos are sorted into six main categories, with each one contributing to the photo's grade and final grade. Players should ideally aim for a score of 4.000 or higher, as this is the minimum amount required to earn a diamond rating.

    • 0 - 2.999 - Bronze Classification
    • 3.000 - 3.499 - Silver Classification
    • 3.500 - 3.999 - Gold Classification
    • 4.000+ ‚Äď Diamond Rating

    While players should try to satisfy all six criteria when lining up their shots, some categories such as size and pose are much easier to earn points than others and in some cases may even be enough to guarantee a diamond rating. even if the other four categories score poorly. Placement can also be worth another 1.000 points and is therefore definitely worth getting right.

    • Pose ‚Äď Using items and upgrades on or near the Pok√©mon will often result in unique poses. Capturing them on camera can add up to 2.000 points to the total score.
    • Size ‚Äď The more space a Pok√©mon takes up on the board, the higher the score. Points can be deducted, however, if parts of the Pok√©mon do not appear in the photo.
    • Steering ‚Äď To get a high steering score, players will need to capture the Pok√©mon while facing the camera. This is usually just a matter of time, although in some cases players may need to lure a Pok√©mon to a specific location with some Fluffruit or use the Melody Player or Scan functions to make it spin.
    • Positioning ‚Äď The closer to the center of the shot a Pokemon is, the higher the positioning score.
    • Another Pok√©mon ‚Äď Having another Pok√©mon that isn't the primary target in a scene will grant additional points, though it's important to remember that the size and position of those Pok√©mon are also important.
    • Background ‚Äď Certain courses have unique features that create impressive backgrounds, so players should try to make the most of them whenever possible.

    Star rating for photos

    When choosing which photos to give to Professor Mirror at the end of a race, players will likely find that each photograph has a star rating of one, two, three or four. Contrary to what some might think, this actually has nothing to do with the quality of the photograph and is determined by what the Pokémon is doing.



    Different actions and poses are assigned different star ratings. For some Pokémon, finding a new one can be as simple as using the Melody Player to make it dance, or throwing a Fluffruit at it to make it angry or sad. For others, however, players will need to take some pretty specific actions, especially when it comes to four-star photographs. Fortunately, the requests players receive from Todd and other characters often point them in the right direction.

    General Tips for Taking the Perfect Photograph

    • Use Scan, the Melody Player, and items whenever possible to discover unique poses and actions for each Pok√©mon.
    • Pay attention to requests and use them to find new Pokemon and four-star photo opportunities.
    • Increase the speed a little in the options menu to make the camera move a little faster.
    • Use the two analog sticks to quickly pan the camera or track a fast-moving Pok√©mon.
    • After completing the main story, use Burst mode to capture the perfect moment during any fast-paced action.
    • Focus on size above all else, as filling the board with a Pok√©mon can be worth up to 2.000 points.
    • Look up and behind the NEO ONE from time to time to avoid missing out on interesting Pok√©mon interactions.
    • Use funds whenever possible to earn additional points towards the final score.
    • Use Turbo to stay ahead of Pok√©mon that are moving away from NEO ONE for a better driving score.
    • Be ready to shoot a Pok√©mon immediately after using an item, as some of its reactions can be very quick.
