As one of the most unique games in a renowned series, Pokémon Snap was the first truly 3-D Pokémon game and introduced the phenomenon to the Nintendo 64.

Travel to Pokémon Island and meet Professor Oak to begin a safari, taking the best possible photographs of 63 different Pokémon as they exist in the wild, undisturbed by humans.

This is not as easy as it sounds—the island has many types of climates and environments to explore, along with secret activities and hidden passages to discover. Plus, some of the Pokémon can be a little shy and won't pose for the camera unless you tease them with special items.

After you're done, submit one picture of each Pokémon to Professor Oak, and he'll judge it based on size, pose, technique and number of Pokémon captured.

Obligatory Pokemon snap on the Switch would be cool! (Though seriously they should make a sequel to this yet they keep not doing anything)

Possibly my favourite game of all time. The atmosphere in this game made it a joy to play, have played through it an incredible amount of times. A 3DS or Wii U sequel is FAAAAAAAAAAAAAR overdue c:
