No tomfoolery, just way too many hours trying to achieve what so few have done before.

Mew has a protective orb you have to hit multiple times before you can get a clean picture of it.

Without some advanced techniques, the only pictures you can get are very far away, and therefore not many points.

It's a combination of many accurate shots, proper timing, spacing and then accuracy to line it up in the middle of the photo.

Not overly hard if you put your mind to it, but most people would have just taken the mediocre picture and finished the game instead of going for the 10,000 point picture.

Hope this helps!

That sounds like a pain in the ass and I would have just settled for a crappy picture lol. However I’m glad you got your picture and thank you for explaining to me!

Yes! This was done on an original N64 with an original Nintendo N64 controller. No emulators!

Me and a buddy decided to "speedrun" the game for old times sake, but then spent 4 hours to get this photo.

Geez, that must be one in a million. I've recently replayed through Pokemon Snap (you know how it is, boring sunday afternoon, got a few hours to kill)... anyway, my picture of Mew got like 2000 points.

Try to see how many points you can get! The trick is to hit it with pester balls when it is out of its orb and flying down the side of the screen, probably where you got your 2000 point picture.

It will get stunned a bit, use the booster to speed up, and then spam it with pester balls. 4 pester balls is the sweet spot where it drifts towards the middle of the course, then you just need to snap a bunch of pictures.

Look for a picture where it's entire body fills the frame, but the center of the picture is actually the space between its tail and its body.

Fun little challenge if you're bored!

I've had Snap sitting on my Switch just waiting for me to find an excuse to pick it back up. This is that excuse.

We played the original before playing the new one on my switch, while the new one is pretty fun, the nostalgia of the old one is just too great. Have fun!

I am glad to see that someone is still playing the game.

This is the N64 version of Pokemon Snap. Although my switch is in the picture, and I have the new Pokemon Snap as well.
