Dear Todd, My name is Professor Oak, and I research Pokemon. I have heard of your excellent work as a photographer and would like your assistance in my research. I am currently doing research on Pokemon Island. Wild Pokemon are the only creatures who live on this island, making it the perfect place to study Pokemon in their natural habitat. I have thought of asking Pokemon trainers to help me, but I am afraid they would become too interested in catching the Pokemon on the island. Pokemon Laboratory Professor Oak The great Pokemon researcher who lives in Pallet Town. Recently he has been busy researching Pokemon Island. 4 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If that happened, the number of Pokemon on the island would decrease, and Pokemon Island would lose its value. Instead, I would like for you to take pictures of the Pokemon in their natural setting. Your pictures would help me complete my PKMN Report. I am looking forward to working with you. Please come to my Laboratory right away. I'll be waiting for you! --Professor Oak Todd A young photographer who chases after any Pokemon he sees. His camera skills are top notch! 5 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ah, I've been waiting for you, Todd. Ride in the ZERO-ONE vehicle I've developed and take pictures of the Pokemon on the island. I can't wait for our finished Report! 6 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is Pokemon Island? Pokemon Island was once inhabited by both humans and Pokemon, but now only Pokemon live there. Although not all types of Pokemon live on the island, many different types can be found. Because an island such as this is so rare, catching Pokemon here is strictly prohibited! ZERO-ONE Vehicle An all-purpose, automated machine developed by Professor Oak for use in researching Pokemon Island. It includes a safety feature which applies the brakes when you are about to collide with a Pokemon. 7 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Starting the Game This information is very important! Please be sure to read this manual thoroughly before starting your game! * Switch On! The first time you play Pokemon Snap, select "New Game." Each time after that, you can simply select "Continue." * Enter Your Name You must first enter your name so I can print out a PKMN Photographer's Card for you. Without this card, you won't be admitted to Pokemon Island. When you're done, select "End." * Ending the Game When you are ready to end your game, be sure to come to my Laboratory and select "Save." This way, all the pictures you have taken will be saved to your Game Pak. Then the next time you play, you can simply select "Continue."

Select "Go to Course" and press the A Button. 2. Select a Course Select the course you want to take. At first you can only choose the Beach, but as you proceed through the game, you will get to go on a variety of courses. 3.

Focus Your Camera You'll soon find Pikachu. When you do, press the Z Button to focus your camera. The ZERO-ONE vehicle won't stop moving, so you'll have to be quick, or you'll miss your chance! 6.

Trying Again Is Simple, Too! If you press START to pause the game, you can immediately leave the course or try it again from the beginning. 13 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7. Keep Taking Pictures If you pay attention to your surroundings, you can take pictures of a variety of Pokemon. You can take 60 pictures with each roll of film, so keep snapping those shots! NEW and ? When a Pokemon that is not in your Report (see page 17) gets caught by your Focus Sensor, the word "NEW" will be displayed on the screen. When a "?" appears on the screen, it means that your Focus Sensor can't identify it. 8. Reaching the Goal Gate When you reach the Goal Gate, you've finished the course. Now you're ready to select your pictures on the Camera Check screen. Choose the Pictures You'll Show to the Professor. 1. Camera Check You can only show me one picture for each type of Pokemon---I'm a very busy man, you know! Select only the best shots and mark them with the Prof. Oak's Mark. 14 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.

Oak's Mark, and the other Pikachu photos will turn dark. Make sure to check all the pictures that are still bright! Did you check all the pictures you took? Pictures that are still bright are Pokemon you haven't checked yet. Don't forget to look at them! 15 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Professor Oak's Check and Report Wow, you've taken a lot of pictues, haven't you? Well, let's check to see if they'll help me with my PKMN Report. Shoot for High-Scoring Pictures! I will give points to the pictures with a Prof. Oak's Mark on them and record the pictures I've checked in the Report. If you take a new picture of a Pokemon that has already been recorded, I'll check to see which is better. Bring me new pictures as often as you like! *Size The bigger they are, the better your score *Pose Catch 'em in an active pose. *Technique Make sure they're in the center of the picture. *Other PKMN Try to catch 'em with other Pokemon of the same type. 16 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Pictures Are Recorded in the Report. The pictures I have checked are recorded in the PKMN Report. If you select "PKMN Report" in the Laboratory, you can see them at any time. Keep bringing me new pictures of Pokemon, and let's finish the PKMN Report! Look for the hints written right on the cover of the PKMN Report. Think of PKMN Report these as things you should do first. Don't miss them! You can display You can view Pokemon in the recorded either pictures any alphabetical or time you want. course order. Best Shot Your Best Shot is the picture you got the most points with. You and a friend can take pictures of the same Pokemon and compete for the highest score. For example, take the Beach course and snap pictures of the Pidgey that appear at the beginning, then see who gets the best score! 17 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Making an Albun How's it going? You're taking lots of pictures now. But I bet there are pictures that you still like, even though you don't get many points for them. You can save those photos in your Album! Saving Your Favorite Photos in an Album You can save photos that you don't include in the PKMN Report into an Album. To save a picture in your Album, select "Album Mark" on the Camera Check screen and mark the picture you want to save. Viewing the Album To view your Album, select "PKMN Album" in the Laboratory. If you haven't saved any photos in your Album on the Camera Check screen, you won't be able to select "PKMN Album" in the Laboratory. You can save up to 60 pictures in your Album. You can also save pictures that don't show any Pokemon! 18 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Arranging Your Album Enlarge Select a photo to enlarge it. Arrange Arrange the photos in your Album in any order you like. Delete You can delete pictures you no longer want. Make sure you really don't want the photo anymore because once you delete it, you can't get it back! --------------------------------------------- Check Get details on which course you took the picture on and more! Comment Add comments to your pictures. Delete Adding Comments to Pictures You can add comments about each photo, such as the date it was taken and the name of the photographer. You could even make a comic book with your photos! 19 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Useful Items These are special items that I've developed. It's too soon to give them to a beginner like you, but once you proceed through the game a bit, I'll let you use them. A Button Pokemon Food This apple-shaped food that I've developed is a favorite of Pokemon. You can make them really happy by throwing it beside them. B Button Pester Ball These Pester Balls have bug-repellent spray in them. Use them to force Pokemon that are hiding in the grass out into the open. 20 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oak's Advice *Reduce ZERO-ONE's speed. When you look behind you, the ZERO-ONE vehicle will move at a slower pace. You can't get good pictures if you are always looking straight ahead. *Go through the same course many times. It's impossible to get all of the good shots there are in a course on your first try. You need to go through each course many times. Also, you should try going back through all the courses each time you get a new item. C-Down Button Poke Flute Each time you press the C-Down Button, you can play a different song on the flute. Some Pokmon will respond to the songs, giving you a great photo opportunity. If you use items in suspicious-looking places, the Pokemon may do unexpected things. 21 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * About the Gallery Once you've saved a lot of photos in the PKMN Report and PKMN Album, you can arrange photos you're particularly fond of in the Gallery. Choose Your Four Best Shots! If you select "Gallery" on the Title screen, you will proceed to the Gallery screen. Here you can arrange your four favorite shots from among the many pictures you've taken. This is very useful when you want to show your work to your friends. When choosing photos for the gallery, you can pick ones from both the PKMN Report and the PKMN Album. You can arrange the photos and enlarge them for viewing. *You can't access the Gallery until you have recorded pictures of at least four Pokemon in the PKMN Report. *Once you have finished choosing your pictures, be sure to select "Save" and press the A Button. Don't forget! 22 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * Pokemon Snap Station Print the pictures you have saved in your Gallery!
