Hey ppl! hey does anyone remember Pokemon snap 4 the N64? that game was awesome! for all the people that don't know about Pokemon snap its a game where prof. oak gives your character (an adventurous Pokemon photographer) a camera and a strange machine to ride in. every time you take a picture of a Pokemon that picture of the Pokemon would be added to your album!(sort of like a pokedex!) the more pictures of different Pokemon you collect, the more new places you unlock!

So for all of the ppl that don't have it what do you think? would you buy it? and for all of the ppl who do have it, what do you think?

The biggest problem I had with Snap was that it was so short. I 'beat' it (meaning I photographed all the Pokemon) in less than a day. If they do make one for the Wii, it would be longer because of the new Pokemon, but I hope they also add some new content to it (sharing your pictures online, maybe some sort of minigame(s) or something), otherwise, it still wouldn't be very long, and probably wouldn't be worth the money.

I think that's a really good idea. Being able to share the pictures you take online would be quite fun, and your friends would be like "Z0MG YOU REALLY DID HATCH ZAPDOOS EGG."

I would also like more places to take pictures. With 493 Pokemon instead of the 151 at the time of Snap, they'd probably need to add more places to take pictures.

Yeah, they would have to add more 'stages', or else there would be far too many Pokemon in each one. Hopefully, they would be able to come up with several unique stages, and not have several cave stages that are almost identical (except for the Pokemon found there) or something.

I agree, the number of repetitive stages on Pokemon Snap is ridiculous. It's pretty much either a river or a cave. (With the except of the level with Mew).

They need to add more options if they make a second one. It should be like "dead rising" like u can run aroundc and take out ur camera when u wish. Add battles too.

It would be great for a remake, knowing that the Wii disk can hold alot more data than the Nintendo 64 game cartridges. I think It would be a good idea. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh Pokémon all In a new Pokémon Snap! It would be the best game of ALL TIME! My copy of Pokémon Snap is kept clean at all times. It's really REALLY important to me. I love it so much.

I never got to play this due to not having a N64, glad it came out on the Virtual Console for Wii.

Wii version would be good.

I used to love that game so much. Looking up in my strategy book how to turn Kanghaskhan around or how to make Zapdos hatch.

I put it in a few days ago and I just couldn't play it. The game's controls were actually so bad that they frustrated me. It was good back in the day, but it phails now.

Still a great game though and I would love to see a remake.

The game was nice and enternaining, not ZOMGEXCELLENT but... just fun.

If they made a remake, I would only buy it if it has good graphics, otherwise, I'm better off with GH5

Oddly enough, I recently bought Snap from Wii's virtual console. I honestly don't understand how it took me weeks to photograph all 63 (Yeah, there were only 63 in the game) Pokémon. Within about 3 hours I had shots of all of the Pokémon, all the "signs", and ... well, I was done with the game.

While short, it was still an amazing game for it's time, and I would buy the sequel without thought if they decided to make the game 21st-century-friendly and more expansive. One of the biggest let-downs this time around was the fact that the levels were only like 3 minutes long. They seemed like so much more back in the day.

I loved this game. It was so refreshing to finally step away from the battles and enjoy the Pokemon World. We can only dream of an in depth version coming to the Wii.

.:Kanto:.
November 15th, 2008, 01:38 PM
lol, I still remember the day I first played it. I think it was about 2003 or 2002, my friend let me borrow his N64 with all of his games. I saw Pokémon Snap and I was like "Oh no, this is a card game.." So I didn't play it until the last day I had it. I LOVED IT and wished I played it more...Damn me and my stupid mind..But 5 years later and I own the same games as my friend and a new N64..I play Pokémon Snap nearly every day. Even though I finish it in less than 3 hours. I still have lots of fun with this classic! It soo beats Pokémon Stadium!

November 15th, 2008, 02:11 PM
That game is absolutely amazing it. I actually have it on my Wii. The only downside to it is that it can be beaten so easily, and there really isn't much replay value.

November 15th, 2008, 08:43 PM
I've purchased this game before, and it seems uber awesome.
I don't care about the bad gameplay or shortness, but I think it has a lot of potential for a sequal on later consoles with more games added and more photo-time with Pokemon.

Omg! I <333 Pokemon Snap, I has it on muh N64!

I haven't played it in forever though since we unhooked the 64 to put the Wii in my room but I hella remember it. I had issues with it though. I finished the game but I always was missing 1 pokemon. And I could never figure out what it was and where it was at.

I think a Pokemon Snap for the Wii would be great. Being able to use the wii remote to point at Pokemon and click maybe A or something to take the pics. With Pokemon from all 4 seasons. And tons of areas like a snowy mountain or a grassy field, maybe riding around on a Lapras to take pics.

The only thing I had issues with is there wasn't enough pokemon in the game, even though it was first season like they didn't even put all 150 in there.

-hoping a new one comes out soon-

lol, I remember how frustrating it was to get a picture of a Muk. I gave up for a week before going back and finally getting it.

A remake would be awesome. They have the technology to make an amazing sequel, and with almost 500 Pokemon, there would be no shortage of pictures to take.

November 16th, 2008, 06:12 PM
Great game Pokemon Snap is. ^^
I actually still have it for my N64 and I play it every once in awhile when I get bored. I remember you use to be able to make stickers at Blockbuster out of the pictures you took... ah, good times.
I really hope they get around to a re-make of the game, I could just envision it being so great on the Wii with all its capabilities.

True it is only taking pictures, but it was a nice break from the repetitive battle-capture-battle-capture pattern you go through in every other Pokemon game, especially for one of its time. It introduced a new aspect of the Pokemon universe and opened the door for future games to develop. If you think about it, it was really the first Pokemon game to break from the main series and do something new. It pretty much led to "Hey You Pikachu", the puzzle series, and the PMD games by being different than every other Pokemon game.

November 20th, 2008, 12:22 PM
I loved Pokemon Snap! ^_^
It was amazing.


The only criticism I have on it is that is was much too short.
And I wish it had more pokemon in it.. that would make it slightly more challenging.

But overall I think it was a great game, and definetely gave a different look towards Pokemon.

Tanooki
November 21st, 2008, 07:20 PM
Pokemon Snap could have been even better had they included every Pokemon (not just 60, or whatever the number was). Nonetheless, it was still a pretty enjoyable game. I liked all the N64 Pokemon games, for one reason or another (with the exception HYP, which although innovative, wasn't very good).

Now, could you imagine if they created a game of this type now for Wii with all the Pokemon available? Replay value would almost be limitless.

Ah, Pokémon Snap. In my opinion, this was the best pokémon spin-off ever. It was pretty deep and, at some points, challenging. I love this game.

I do too, but how do you get the pokemon signs graded, I take picture but I just end up discarding them.

HeidiMoose
November 23rd, 2008, 02:25 AM

You just take a picture of a sign and then mark it to show Prof. Oak.
He'll be all excited to see it, but I don't believe he actually "grades" the picture, rather just puts it in the "signs" part of the album or whatever.
If you have more than one picture for him to choose from, I think you just pick whichever one that you like the best.
But there's no poses or angles really to grade a sign on, whereas there is with the Pokemon, because they're more of a challenge to get a good picture of.
I'm a little cloudy on it.. it's been a few months since I've played.
But after you get all six signs, you get access to Rainbow Cloud, where Mew is.

supertails
November 24th, 2008, 12:17 AM
I know. That's why I want to get all the signs because Mew is so cute and I want to beat the game of course.

I actually have the original cartridge of Pokémon Snap for the N64 (then again, I don't have a Wii, so it wouldn't make much sense for me to have it on the Virtual Console). I'd have to echo the sentiment that it was entirely too short – though, I don't think having more Pokémon in it would help that. It just needs more substance, is all. The on-rails photography is what made it difficult at some times too, since you'd only have a small window of time to get what you needed. I remember when I was younger that it'd take me forever to figure out how to go on from the Cave area (into the Volcano area).

I was actually debating playing it over the break this weekend, though I'd have to get through schoolwork, then the temptation to play other things, like Devil May Cry, Killer7, or Rogue Galaxy. Oh, and of course, XD and/or Colosseum.

pokemon snap was one of my favorite pokemon games ever
i remember the signs and where they are (well, i remember most of em)
beach-the moss-coveredrocks near the beginning of the stage look like a kingler
tunnel-dont remember
volcano-the rising gas near the beginning of the stage where the rapidash are
rapids-kinda obvious, its the dugtrio mountain
cave-there are a few gems lined up and if u take a photo of them its a mewtwo
thats all i remember

Correct me if there is one, as I don't pay much attention to the latest Wii games, but it'd be good if you could use the WiiMote as a camera for Pokemon Snap Wii if they made one, and then you could put them on your message board and stuff. Like I said, there might already be one but I don't know...

Not for GB. But it was a machine that was at Block Buster stores in USA. Or Myers in Australia. It was just a machine that you put in your Pokémon Snap game cartridge and pay a small fee of like 25 cents or something like that. It then gives you a list of all the pictures you've taken and you can print a few. It was an awsome machine. Simple but awsome.

I actually just went on craigslist, bought a N64 and Pokemon snap.

It's just as amazing as i remembered it.

And it's true about the replay value, but one feature i really like was the special conditions and the perfect scores.

Plus, i kinda felt like i accomplished something every time Oak said "Your an amazing photographer!" Or "Your work is impeccable!"

Haha...i love you oak....-cries-

The biggest problem I had with Snap was that it was so short. I 'beat' it (meaning I photographed all the Pokemon) in less than a day. If they do make one for the Wii, it would be longer because of the new Pokemon, but I hope they also add some new content to it (sharing your pictures online, maybe some sort of minigame(s) or something), otherwise, it still wouldn't be very long, and probably wouldn't be worth the money.
Also the Pokemon should be able to jump you and steal all your Pokefood and then you have to shake your Wii remote (a la House Of The Dead 4) to get them off. :33

(not really).

Pokemon Snap was fun. I don't play through games fast at all, so it lasted me a long time. I think I finished it eventually, or may have been short of one or two Pokemon. I got Mew though, once a friend showed me how to take a photo of it.

I finished it when I was younger and decided to buy it for Wii Virtual Console for fun and I finished everything in like 3 hours. Way too short.

December 23rd, 2008, 02:23 PM
Yeah very fun game Snap was..
I still want them to make a new one for Wii with all 493 Pokemon so there is more of a challenge. Also the Wiimote sensor motion would be awesome for it!

I think Pokemon Snap was one of the first games I played for the Nintendo 64. I remember I always enjoyed the Volcano, I think it was called, but I haven't played in ages, so I'm brain dead.

Kinarii
January 17th, 2009, 11:16 AM
I remember that by the time I had the chance to play it, they didn't have those sticker machines in Blockbusters anymore... so disappointing.

I borrowed a copy from my friend a couple months ago, and it was way shorter than I remembered. Took 3 hours start to finish. I was pretty retarded at video games as a kid, though.

My Pokémon Ranch has a picture-taking function, so I don't see why they shouldn't make a newer, longer game for Wii with all the tons of new Pokés that have since been introduced.

I've never played this on N64 but I have recently found a ROM and played it on Project64. It looks good but there a few downsides what could have been improved:

- All 151 original Pokemon should be in the game

- Todd should have more freedom to move about instead of being confined to that vehicle

- The levels should be made much larger

- More levels should be made

Pokemon Snap still has legendary status among my friends. It's still fun to pick it up and beat it again (because it doesn't take that long.)

I don't think it could meet the standards that the people who once played it would have for it now. It was, and probably will remain, a one-hit-wonder.

BenjiTheKid
February 25th, 2009, 09:24 PM
I think it would be awesome if Nintendo made another one for the Wii or the DS or any system like that. I almost forgot about the game until I saw this board.

My friend had Pokemon Snap and I'd play it every time I went to his house. I totally Pwn'd it in a day each time, too. It was awesome.

I think if they made a new one, it would last longer. Because there's more Pokemon now.

DarknessPokemon
February 26th, 2009, 07:32 PM
That game was awesome. I hope Nintendo would make another one. They should make it like a first person shooter where you control the cameraman and shoot pics of various Pokemon. There could also be a mission system, where you get a assignment to take a snapshot of specific Pokemon.

Well, my Amazon order finally came, and among it all was a brand-new, factory sealed copy of Pokemon Snap. The best part of it all was it only costed me $15. Seriously. Most sealed boxes of N64 games are in the $200-400 range, but I stumbled upon this for only $15.

I could have bought Snap on the VC, but I preferred to go this route. I lost the game years ago, and wanted to re-buy it for my N64 collection, so why not buy a brand new copy? All these years later, this game is still as fun as ever.

I agree, I mean they even made a sequel to Pinball!, and with the Wii it would be so much fun! Using the Wii mote to point your lens sounds like it would just be awesome....

The Game was short, but there were alot of extra stuff you can try to pull off in the game, amazing reply value as well, I mean you might only have beat it in three hours, but it doesn't mean your not going to pick it up a couple months later and do it again.
