How to get mew to turn its whole body towards you and get a close up shot:
First you have to knock Mew out of it's energy shield,  then when it is
chasing it's energy shield hold "R" to speed up, then throw a pester ball
and hit Mew.  When you hit it, Mew will spin then stop,  when Mew stops it's
whole body will be facing you, when it is hurry up and take a picture of it,
 because if your not fast enough Mew will disappear.  ( After Mew disappears it
will reappear still chasing it's energy shield! )

I now have the hard to get 10,000 point Mew.
To do this get Mew out of it's barrier.Than keep hitting it with items until you think it's close enough than when it stops and looks at you (note you should be extremly close) keep taking its picture repeat this then pick your biggest Mew picture. 
Special-2,500
Size-1,000
Pose-1,500(When it looks at you)
Tecnique-2x

If you said that you got those high scores from the experts at Nintendo,
then why did I get a higher Koffing than on the high scores? It says that the
highest koffing you can get is worth 4,000 points, but I just got one worth
4,400 points. All you do is play the pokemon fute on the second song and
gases come out of him in circles!!!

  • 9.13.99 the hardest shot to get in the game is a special flying Pikachu. In the cave level, when a Zubat picks up Pikachu, hit it w/food or a pester ball, then Pikachu will drop via balloons. When Pikachu hits the ground play the flute and an articuno will pop out of the egg. when you are leaving the area, turn around and then Articuno will fly by with a Pikachu on its back, but you have to get a picture of the Pikachu, otherwise you don't get the special. -Bones
  • In Pokemon Snap, there are several Bonus Shots that you can get that are worth many bonus points. Here, listed in order, are all the special shots!

  • Pikachu On A Stump(Beach): In a grassy area near the middle of the level, you will see grass flying up everywhere. Use Pester Balls to try and flush out Scyther. This will cause two Pikachu to run onto stumps just beyond the grass, and perform backflips. Use the Poke Flute, to make them start doing Thundershocks. You'll get a whopping 1,300 Bonus Points for capturing this on film!
  • Pidgey Attack(Beach): Near the end of the beach, you will spot a Meowth near a Pidgey nest. Keep your camera focused on two Pidgey as they fly in. Snap a shot of the Pidgey unleashing Whirlwind on Meowth for 500 Bonus Points.

Thanks to Mewtwo 2481 for this information!

  • 9.13.99 If you want the best Snorlax picture, play the third song. 1000 every time! - "Ken"
  • 9.13.99 HOW TO GET CHARMANDER TO EVOLVE INTO CHARMELEON! First you have to be at the Volcano stage. As you pass the Vulpix, you'll spot a pair of far off pokemon to the left of the Zero-one. It's pretty tough to take a good close-up shot of this Charmander.You can try to to lure this one closer to the road with pokemon food.But an errant toss may cause the Magmar to come closer. If the two fight over the same piece of food, the magmar will blow out fire and the Charmander will evolve. - Brian Isaacs 
9.13.99 Some of the hidden Pokemon can be found using these tips:
  • stage 1- scyther. after snorlax, there will be a large grass area. a pidgey and meowth will come out. then, knock out meowth, and the vehicle should stop. when 10 pester balls goes into the large, grassy area, scyther comes out, and with 1 more, 2 pika's will dance on two stumps. play the flute for max points!
  • stage 2- zapdos and dugtrio- zapdos is sort of easy. lure pika to the big egg with apples. when he's close, flute. he will electricute the egg, and zapdos will come out. when he comes out, snap away, and you will get 1350 pose points. for dugtrio, pika and digglet are playing. snap diggy, and he will move. snap em again, and he'll move again. one more time, and dugtrio will come. for max points, snap the first, then two will come, snap one of them, and there will be three. max points! dont forget the sign!
  • level 3- moltres, growlithe, arcanine, charizard- moltres is easy. pester ball the egg, then snap away! you will either get 1 arcanine or 2 growlithe with this. throw pester balls into the craters. they will jump out. Charizard is right after this. look to your left after arcanine, and charmeleon will be circling a lava pool. pester him in, and he'll evolve. pester him again, and he will attack you. max points!!!
  • level 4- slobro, vileplume, porygon- slowbro is easy. lure slowpoke to the shellder sign. snap him here hor extra points. when he evolves, quickly pokeflute to make him dance. then look right. hurry! there is vileplume! after the metapods, snap the psyduck, then pester ball where the fly is. porygon! throw food for max points!

For a sure way to get Zapdos, throw an apple right after the doors open. when that happens, the lone pikachu will chase it. throw another apple at the egg, then play the flute. right after zapdos hatches, snap away. its more points than him charging the light for the second sign. - "Ken"

  • 8-9-99 On the beach, after you see Meowth on the hill, thereís some bushes, throw Pesters balls and apples into it and sometimes a scyther comes out, after Scyther comes out keep throwing stuff into the bushes and two pikachus will Come out and start flipping on the two stumps, these are called the"stump Pikachu", get a picture of both of them while one is jumping in the air and You will get over 6,000 points for that one shot. - Ben
  • 8-9-99 Pikachu Pictures (Foobug@hotmail.com): 
    Surf Pikachu - In the BEACH stage there is a pikachu near the start. Throw some apples to lure it to the surfboard a little farther on. Then when heís close enough, he will pause for a while then runs to the surfboard and do some poses. This is great if you are taking them up close and saving them into the album!
  • Thunder Pikachu - Sometimes when you play a Pokeflute near a Pikachu, he will start doing his thunder shock attack. This is great for some points at the beach up close.

  • Pikachu(2) On A Stump AND Scyther - When you reach the tall grass where a meowth comes out chasing a pidgey, throw as many pester balls in the tall grass to the left and a scyther will come out flying and doing some attacks, take a shot at him before he flies away, no keep looking left, you will see two pikachus come out of the grass and go on the stumps. You can try to take pics of both of them while on the stump or you can use the pokeflute to make them use their thundershock move then take a shot.

  • Pikachu On Ball - Near the start of the TUNNEL stage, thereís a pikachu, take a snap at it, heíll run farther, now take another and another till he goes on the rolling voltorb. Quickly try to take some good shots at him upclose when heís on the ball for good credit.

  • Pikachu On Balloons - When you reach almsot near the end of the CAVE, thereís a zubat holding and flying with a pikachu, if you hit the zubat with a pester ball, heíll drop pikachu and pikachu will have balloons, this is worth lots of points! Pikachu On Articuno - Before doing this, make sure you have pikachu freed from zubatís grasp in the CAVE, thereíll be two JYNXís, if you use the pokeflute nearíem, theyíll start clapping (good beat!) the blue egg in the middle will start to float and hatch into Articuno.(you can take shots at him for the ARTICUNO shot) Now when you pass by the jynxís quickly turn around, you will see pikachu riding on articuno, take a shot at PIKACHU NOT articuno or it will count as articuno.

  • Swift Pikachu - Near the end of the RIVER, thereís a log to the left with pikachu on top, throw an apple at pikachuís head, he will come out of the log and back. Make sure you react quickly cause he's VERY fast.

     

  • 8-9-99 To get a close pic a Lapras: Take a pic and play the poke flute when you see the futher Lapras. Repeat this step until you get to Kangaskan. Later on you can get a close pic of Lapras by Kangaskhan. Trust me this works. - Marc Manalo
  • 8-8-99 We have two tips for your Pokemon Snap section:

    #1- Many many Charmandars: In the Volcano stage, donít move the Moltres egg and youíll be stopped by it. Then turn to your left and youíll see two Charmandars. Throw an apple for one of them and it will call some more Charmandars. Keep throwing apples for all the Charmandars and theyíll eventually call all their friends and youíll see six Charmandars in total. And if you play the pokemon flute they look like Children of the Corn! Itís creepy!

    #2- Hopping Psyducks: In the River stage youíll see a Psyduck swimming around some pieces of land. If you throw a Pesterball at him heíll sink into the water like heís dead. If you throw another one into the water heíll jump out of the water and continue jumping allover the place (sometimes two will come out and jump together). Ė Sarah and Andrew

  • 8-9-99 How to snap Mew: Go to the Rainbow Cloud level. Look straight ahead through the whole level except when you hit Mew the 1st 3 times. Then keep looking straight ahead[up-c] And Mew will come. Hit her with a pester ball. If you miss and she passes you look straight ahead and try again. Do this until Mew starts chasing her bubble. Hit her and she will spin. When she's done spinning she will teleport. Get the picture!  - Steven Johnson
  • Photographing Mew: When you enter Rainbow Cloud, you will see a Mew in a green energy bubble. You cannot get any shots of Mew while the shield is up. Hit Mew three times with Pokemon Food or Pester Balls, and Mew will drop the green shield, and reappear in a yellow one. Hit it three times again. A few second later , you will see Mew flying after itís Energy Bubble. Hit Mew with something, and it will spin for a few seconds before facing you and disappearing. Keep hitting it until you can get up close, then get a good close up. The best score you can get for a picture of Mew follows:

    Special: 2,500
    Size: 950
    Pose: 1,500
    Technique: Doubled Score
    Total: 9,900          -----  Mewtwo2481

  • 8-9-99 I have tip for Pokemon Snap to get Dugtrio(s) Take a picture of Diglett when it pops out of its hole. Then, the Diglett will move to another spot and pop out, take a picture of it again. Then it will move again, Take a picture of it. The fourth time Dutrio will come out. If you want more Dugtrios, Take a picture of that one and another one including the first will come out. Do it again and three will come out. - Pokemaniac
  • I have a couple tips. Most of them are for the Volcano Stage. First, for mega-points on your Rapidash pics, throw some food in their path. They will neigh and rear up, but not for long, so take pictures quick. Second, to get the Vulpix's attention, throw some food to, I repeat to, not at, them. Same with the Magnemites in the Tunnel level. For some extra points in the Volcano level, try to catch Pokemon on film when they shake some magma off of themselves (if they do). For the highest score on your Vileplume, take a picture of it after playing the PokeFlute song that makes it do flips. My last tip (I've had some experience with this) is, there are only two Pokemon that will evolve if you knock them in some kind of liquid. (Many people think that almost all Pokemon are like that. For example, some people think you can get Ninetales by knocking a Vulpix inot the lava. Others think Magmars will evolve into who-knows-what if you knock them into the lava.) Anyway, the only two Pokemon that will evolve if you use food or something to knock them into a liquid are Charmeleon and Weepinbell.  My name's tim Jirik and our E-mail is dtjirik@execpc.com
  • 8-9-99 Ghost Photos - In the first tunnel, take pictures of the purple myst that floats around. When they develop, It will be one of the ghost trio (Gastly, Haunter, Gengar).
    Group of Charmanders - To find a group of Charmander, go to to the place where you can find the Moltres egg. The pelt the egg with pokemon food, and if you've recieved pester balls, throw those. Then you'll see a Charmander call his buddies. From then on, it's a waiting game. After the Charmander come, take a picture and you'll receive bonus points from Professor Oak. - Alex Bykov -  Pokemon_Cards@worldnet.att.net

  • In the Cave level (Level 5) when you first enter the cave, look to your left. You will see two Grimer on the ledges. Photograph them both. Once, you go into the second section of the cave, look below you. Hit the Grimer you will see with three Pester Balls(You must photograph the first two Grimer, or this one will not appear). After it is hit three times, it will evolve into a Muk right before your eyes! In the same section, there are three Bulbasaur on a ledge to your right. Hit them with Pester Balls and they will reveal that they are actually three Ditto in disguise. In the third section of the cave, you will find three Jigglypuff being chased by three Koffing. If you hit all three Koffing with Pester Balls or Pokemon Food , you will get a reward at the end of the stage. In this same area, you will see a Weepinbell circling a pool of water. Use Pester Balls or Pokemon Food to knock it in the water, and it will evolve into Victreebel! When you enter the fourth section of the level, you will see a Zubat flying around with a Pikachu. If you hit the Zubat with Pokemon Food or Pester Balls, it will drop Pikachu. Pikachu will float down to the ground on some balloons. Snap a picture of balloon Pikachu. It will earn you many Bonus Points, plus it would be a great shot for your Album. Next, you will see two Jynx and an egg of ice. Play the Poke Flute to make the Jynx break the egg, and cause the birth of a legendary Articuno. You will lose sight of the Articuno, but as you fly through the fifth and final section, Articuno will fly back with Pikachu on itís back, but only if you rescued Pikachu from Zubat. Now, remember those three Jigglypuff? If you rescued them all, they will be in this area, and perform for you. Take a good shot for a big bonus. After that, you exit the level. now, find your best shots, and show them to Professor Oak! Mewtwo2481@aol.com
