Pokemon SNAP Walk-Thru
This walk-thru was submitted by
Remember to get as close as you
possibly can to a Pokemon with all of itís body still in the frame
when you snap.
Note: In case you are worried about getting that shot, keep
snapping on the same Pokemon until you start to get too far away from
it, and then you will have a lot to pick from.
Note 2: I am aware that in some levels there are other Pokemon than
the ones I list. If you see that I didnít cover one, that means that
I think there is a better picture in another level. This way you wonít
get confused on which picture to take. I hope this helps you. On to
the first level.
Level 1: Beach
Pidgey- You can get Gust-using Pidgey at the end of the level, but
I have found there is a better shot. At the very beginning of the
level when the intro cinema scene ends, turn you view completely to
the back (press either left or fight C buttons twice) and wait until
you see three Pidgey. As soon as you see them, start snapping on the
biggest one, because soon it will back away a little bit and start
screeching. try to get as much of the other two Pidgey in the picture
as possible while keeping your main focus on the size of the largest
one (Hint: Professor Oak thinks the Pidgey are screeching right when
the big one starts to back away, so snap when it does for a bigger
Pikachu- The best picture I have is Pikachu on a Stump. To get this
get the first Scyther out of the bushes, hit the Meowth with a pester
ball when heís on the tracks to buy you more time, then, throw
pester balls in the grass area where leaves are flying around. After
that two Pikachu will come out and sit on the stumps. Play any
Pokeflute song as quick as you can to make them do a Thundershock
(pose points), and get as close as you can to one of them and snap
(You might get more points if you only focus on one Pikachu instead of
trying to get both in because of size but you can experiment on your
Scyther- Get him out of the bushes (refer to Pikachu to learn how)
and make sure heís facing you, then snap when he is slashing his
claws Chansey- Hit the pink ball that Eevee is following with a pester
ball, then make it happy with Pokemon food Doduo- Hit him with a
pester ball at the beginning of the level when heís near pikachu
Lapras- Take pictures of all the Lapras you see, then a big one should
come out of the water right before you see Kangaskhan (after Eevee and
Snap and try to get some Lapras in the background
Kangaskhan- Hit him with a pester ball as soon as you can (when heís
facing backwards) then after he turns around you can get a good shot
of him doing a roar, but you might want to play Pokeflute song three
to make him dance (again play the Pokeflute as soon as he turns around
because he has to finish roaring first) to get you more pose points
Meowth- Hit him off his platform right after the Snorlax as soon as
you can. You should see him on the other side on the ground. Play the
Pokeflute (song one will do) and make him dance. Remember you must try
and get his whole body in the frame.
Eevee- First hit Chansey to make Eevee stop, then give Eevee some
food and snap while heís eating Butterfree- I guess the best pose is
having Butterfree facing strait at the camera because all it does is
fly. Some good close up areas would be after Pikachu and the surf
board over a bed of flowers. The next area is over the Snorlax, where
you can find two Butterfree. Finally the last good place is when you
cross the bridge, and if your lucky you can get one big one and two in
Level 2: Tunnel
Kakuna- This oneís hard to explain...after you enter the cave
itself you will see an Electrabuzz getting blown up by an Electrode.
Keep going until you see More stationary Electrodes and hit them
Either with Pester Balls or Pokemon food. when they explode Kakuna
will fall from the ceiling try to get as many in a picture at once
Electrode- The last one before you go into the room with Zapdos is
your best bet. Get it to explode with food or Pester Balls to make him
explode for more pints Zapdos- Lure Pikachu over to the Egg with food,
then play the Pokeflute to make him shock the egg. It will fly up and
explode revealing a Zapdos. Try to get him with Thunder and egg shell
still flying around him Haunter- At the beginning of the room with
Diglett you will see a purple glow which is Haunter. snap his picture
when he is facing you (the way heís moving usually or when the
purple seems to get brighter Diglett- Thatís easy get him right when
he pops up and when heís at his highest Dugtrio- Take a picture of
the first Diglett, and it will move. Do it again two more times, and
he will bring Dugrio. Do the same thing with Dugtrio two more times to
make three Dugtrio pop up for a great picture. Electabuzz- In the room
with Diglett, on the right side of the room are two Electabuzz. The
first one is probably the best. hit him with Pokemon food or a Pester
Ball and he will hit the ground with his fist. Take a shot when you
see the electricity coming out of his fists. The size is the only bad
thing, so you just might want to take a big picture of the first
Electabuzz in the level close up. Just get in front of him by using
the dash engine and facing either to the left or right wall when the
Electrode starts coming at you then hit Electabuzz with a Pester Ball.
When he gets up snap him. Magnemite- Throw Pokemon food near one to
make it eat it, while heís trying to reach the food he canít use
itís "sonic wave" thing so you can take a clear picture
Magneton- Lure all of the Magnemiteís together with Pokemon food to
make them Magneton. Again throw the food (even though Magneton doesnít
do the "sonic wave" thing) to get him facing you then get
the Pokeball focus symbol in the middle of the zoom screen on the part
of Magneton thatís on top, and try to get the other two parts fully
in the screen for the best points. Level Note: When you see the
Magnemite at the end of the level look to the right (right C button
once) and you will see a lone Electrode. Hit it as soon as you can
with food or a Pester Ball to reveal a secret exit.
Level 3: Volcano
Rapidash- After you see the first one run by you, you will see two
more come on the right side. Throw Pokemon food at them and they will
neigh for max pose points. Try to get both in the picture Vulpix-
After you see the Rapidash, on the left you will see a lone Vulpix.
Try to lure it in front of you so it meets up with the other two
Vulpix you see right after it. Get them all in a group and make them
happy with Pokemon food (also the way to group them up)
Charmander- I donít know what the best pose is (there is the one
where he is roaring at you, roaring in the air, happy after you give
food to it, or when you hit it with a Pester Ball), but I would think
itís when you give him food. Anyway, the best place to get
Charmander is where you see the Moltres egg. Let the egg stop you and
look left. You will see two Charmander. Give each one Pokemon food and
they will call two of there friends each for a total of six. Get them
all grouped with Pokemon food and try to get them all in one shot.
Moltres- When it flies out of the Magma, and goes toward the Magmar
and then Spread itís wings fully sort of shaking of embers. Magmar-
See the two after the Moltres. Put Pokemon food between them and if it
is in the right place they should both use their Flamethrower attack
on each other. Donít forget to snap the one closer to you.
Growlithe- After the two Magmar, if you look to the left you will see
three holes with magma in them. Throw a Pester Ball into it, and there
is a good chance a Growlith will come out. If you can get three
Growlithe in a group it might get you more points then if you get a
picture of one shaking off embers which would have given you the most
pose points. Arcanine- As I stated above there is a good chance of a
Growlithe, but the other chance (which is a little bit less) is that
Arcanine comes out. Again the embers is the best pose, but it would be
fun to try and get three Arcanine in one picture.
Charmeleon- The best Charmeleon you can get is the one circling the
magma pool at the end of the level (the one you might want to knock in
for Charizard). Give him food and he will probably start roaring for
max pose points.
Charizard- Hit the Charmeleon in the Magma with Pokemon food or a
Pester Ball. When Charizard emerges from the magma, hit him with
Pokemon food (not a Pester Ball because he takes too long to recover),
and then he should do his Flamethrower attack at you, for max pose
points. The thing is Itís hard to get his whole body in the picture
because he puts his wings up when he does the attack. It is said that
you should wait until you are about to exit to take this picture but
it never seem to work for me.
Level 4: River
Bulbasaur- The best Bulbasaur picture you can find is probably in
the beginning of this level. You can get the first Bulbasaur out of
his tree trunk with a Pester Ball, the second thatís in a log will
need Pokemon food, and the third is exactly like the first one.
Poliwag- This one is sort of up to you. You can get all three out
of there hiding places to the right of where you entered the level
with Pester Balls. Hit the ground near where the first one is to scare
it and make it run to another Poliwag (I recommend not hitting the
Poliwag because it will take time to recover before it runs). After itís
next to the other Poliwag, do the same thing, and the two will join a
third one. Throw a final Pester Ball near them and they will dive into
the water. This is were itís up to you. You can get a close up of
them jumping in, but the pose points are when they are jumping in and
out of the water after they originally jump in. Also you can get a
lone Poliwag by chance if you throw Pokemon food or Pester Balls in
the water (chance of Poliwag, Psyduck, and Magikarp).* Slowpoke- After
the Poliwag and Bulbasaur, you can find Slowpoke to your right. The
best pose points are given if it is dancing (use the Pokeflute), but
if you do this he will face you and you wonít get the most size
points. To get the most size points you will probably use Pokemon food
to make it face about a forty-five degree angle from actually facing
you, so you get the whole body. You will probably have to experiment
with this. Slowbro- As soon as you see a Slowpoke, use Pokemon food to
lure it over near the Shellder sign (it will take a while for it to
turn around and stick itís tail in so do it right when heís
visable). After about a second he will catch a Shellder which will
latch on to his tail becoming a Slowbro. For max pos points, throw
Pokemon food to have him face you, and snap when it looks like heís
waving at you.
Vileplume- Instead of turning left to see Slowpoke, turn right to
see Vileplume. Play song number three (itís up to you, but I think
three gives more points) and it will start dancing. Try to get close
because it itself is kind of far.
Shellder- Instead of looking left or right to see Slowpoke or
Vileplume, just look strait and some Shellder will come out of the
water (you might want to use the dash engin here to get close). I canít
figure out what Professor Oak likes for pose (it seems to change), but
I think itís when itís looking strait at you with itís tongue
out. Try to get the other two in the background doing the pose that
getís you more points too. Metapod- After the Slowpoke, Vileplum,
and Shellder; you will will see Metapod hanging from the tree tops.
Hit any of them with a Pester Ball and they will come down. Itís
really a guessing game on the size (I still havenít gotten perfect
size points), and the pose is probably when it looks like a crescent
moon with an eye, a nose, and mouth. Psyduck- You can let one of the
last Metapods stop you (by driving into it) so you can get a picture
of a Psyduck that is circling some tree trunks to the left (if you hit
a Psyduck that is floating on the water it will sink, and in a couple
of seconds it will start hopping out of the water in different places.
The last time he jumps out is usually the closest shot you will get.
Also you can get a lone Psyduck by chance if you throw Pokemon food or
Pester Balls in the water (chance of Poliwag, Psyduck, and Magikarp).*
Porygon- There are two Porygon camouflaging in the area immediatly
after the Metapod and to the right. You can sort of see them because
their nose is sticking out of the place they camouflage. Hit the area
with a Pester Ball, and a Porygon (which still has camouflage on) will
come out. Hit the Porygon again, and it will lose the camouflage and
return to itís normal look. To get the most pose points make it
happy and get it facing you with Pokemon food when it has the
Cloyster- Take a picture of all the Shellder you see in the level,
the end of the level (about where the Porygons are) you will see
Shellder. Take a picture of those Shellder and a Cloyster will come
followed by another one. For the best pose points, take the picture
itís facing you.
- Note: At any time during the level you can throw Pokemon food or
Pester Balls in the water, to by chance make a Poliwag, Psyduck,
or Magikarp appear. Also if by chance the Poliwag, Psyduck, or
Magikarp has a trail of sparks following it; that means that it
will give you max pose points for that Pokemon Level Note: Near
the end of the level after you see the two Porygon that I talked
about keep looking right. You will come across an area with a red
button. You can activate this button by hitting the Porygon that
is hiding in the wall behind the button, making the Porygon jump
on it. This will then reveal a secret exit.
Level 5: Cave
Grimer- At the beginning of the level, look to the right and take a
picture of the far away two in the hole or tunnel, then turn
completely around. Then when you pass into the second area, you will
go over a Grimer which is close enough for a good picture. The pose is
just looking at you I think. Muk- Do everything the same as you would
to get Grimer (see above). Then when you see the Grimer immediately
hit it with three Pester Balls (one after another) and it will turn
into a Muk. The pose is again looking at you Ditto- See those
Bulbasaur in the second room? Those are the ones you want. Hit them
all with Pester Balls to get more than one in the picture, and then,
lure them together with Pokemon food and take the picture. The pose is
when Ditto stretches upwards, so make sure the one you focus on is
doing that. Koffing- The first Koffing you see chasing a Jigglypuff is
the one you want. Wait untill he makes his trip past you and back to
you untill you have a close up of his face. Then take out the
Pokeflute and play. When heís smiling is when you will get the most
Weepinbell- The only Weepinbell is in the third room circling a
pool of water. Just have it close and facing you for your picture
Victreebel- Hit the Weepinbell that was circling around the water in
with Pokemon food or a Pester Ball. It will emerge as a Victreebel.
For the best shot, take the picture as your about to go into the next
room for size (because you need to get the whole body in), and when itís
facing you. Jynx- For some reason, Professor Oak likes song threeís
effect on Jynx the best. Switch fast to song three and then turn
completely around (turning completely around makes you go slower) and
wait until Jynx is in the picture. A good picture is when itís
clapping but anytime during the dance is fine. Articuno- Play any song
for Jynx (to make them crack the egg) and then turn completely around.
Wait until you hear that Articuno broke free and quickly turn around
for your picture. You have to be fast for this picture. It is sort of
hard, so if you canít do it the way I explained, you might just want
to go facing forward (facing forward will make you go at normal speed
giving you less time for your picture).
Zubat- Take a picture of about any Zubat you see (make sure it says
Zubat at the bottom of the screen each time), and then at the end of
the level (a few seconds before you exit), you will see three Zubat
flying in formation above you. Focus on the biggest one for the best
picture, and the pose is when itís facing ou with itís mouth open.
Jigglypuff- Save all of the Jigglypuff by hitting all the Koffing
with Pester Balls or Pokemon food (three Jigglypuff and three Koffing).
The locations are:
1) Right in front of you, it will cross your path (donít use
the dash engin)
2) After you hit the first Koffing (which should be as soon as
you can) turn around and you should see another pair
3) Coming from under the Mewtwo sign (see Pokemon sign section).
Koffing is the hardest to hit
After you save all of the Jigglypuff, at the end of the level look
right and you will see Jigglypuff trio on stage for max pose points.
Level 6: Valley
Squirtle- At the beginning of the level there are at lest four
Squirtle in the water with there shells showing. Hit the shells with
Pester Balls in a direction so they land on the shore on the left. Get
as many on shore as you can, and give them Pokemon food for the pose.
Sandshrew- At the beginning of the level after the Squirtle, youíll
turn and on the wall to the right will be a clinging Geodude. Hit the
Geodude and it will fall making a Sandshrew come out. Now, there are
three Geodude and three Sandshrew, so you will have to pick which you
want in a picture. I suggest the first one because it is closest, and
for the pose get it when it just pops out of the ground.
Sandslash- Instead of looking right for Geodude, look strait and in
the distance you will see a Sandslash. As you get closer it will dig
back in the ground. To get it back hit the two Geodude on the wall
with Pester Balls one right after the other and a Graveler will fall
from the top making Sandslash come out. Again the best pose is just as
it comes out of the ground (while it is spinning in the air).
Graveler- After the Sandslash you will fall down a waterfall, and
come to a wall on the left where three Graveler are hanging on the
wall. When you reach that place experiment with your Pokeflute to get
them group dancing (all three songs make them dance, but they will do
different dances respectfully) so you will have to find out how to get
them in a good possession (one big one in the front that is facing
you, and two on both sides of it).
Gyarados- At the beginning of the level, you will see a fish in the
distance flopping around. When you reach that spot, pelt it with
Pester Balls until a Magikarp comes out of the water and in the path
of a Mankey, who will punch it in the distance. You wonít see it
again until the Graveler group dance area, when at that time (whenever
you think right because you wonít get the best shot of Gyarados the
first time) hit it with a Pester Ball making it flop over in the
waterfall where it will emerge as a Gyarados (it will be big if you do
it early). Get a shot of it spitting if you can for pose points.
Staryu- After you pass the Graveler group dance area, you will have
three chances for Staryu. The pose is just facing you mostly, but the
hard part is the size.
Starmie- Take a picture of at least one Staryu (it will start
revolving around you) all three would be better though, and then head
down to the whirlpool. All the Staryu that were revolving around you
will jump in and evolve into Starmie one after another. Take a close
picture of it, when it is facing you.
Dragonite- See the whirlpool near the end of the level? Throw three
Pester Balls in the pool, and if it accepts them all (it will flash
after each one if it does) a Dragonite will come out. Get a picture
when it is roaring at you.
Mankey- That Mankey on the hill is far away, but two Squirtle
almost hit it. If you can direct the third Squirtle with a Pester Ball
so it hits the Mankey, the Mankey will get ready for a good picture.
Once you hit it, on the other side of the hill, it will be jumping mad
for a great picture. Dratini- You can get Dratini by chance with
Pester Balls in the water (chance of Dratini, Magikarp, or Goldeen),
and in the area next to the whirlpool.
Just get it facing you and in the center of the screen (which in
fact is the
Magikarp- This is another one that can be found by chance in the
Pester balls (chance of Dratini, Magikarp, or Goldeen), or you can
use a dash
engine at the beginning of the level trying to get the one flopping
near the Mankey (which isnít that easy). Try to get it doing a
pose if you
Goldeen- The last one you can get by chance using a Pester Ball in
(chance of Dratini, Magikarp, or Goldeen), but it is found mostly
beginning and end of the level.*
- Note: At any time during the level you can throw Pokemon food or
Pester Balls in the water, to by chance make a Dratini, Magikarp,
or Goldeen appear. Also if by chance the Dratini, Magikarp, or
Goldeen has a trail of sparks following it; that means that it
will give you max pose points for that Pokemon Level Note: When
you get the Mankey off itís hill at the end of the level, hit it
with a Pester Ball in the direction of the red button. This will
trigger a secret exit, where Professor Oak will give yo a mission
to find the six Pokemon signs (see Pokemon sign section)
Level 1: Kinglear- After Pikachu and the surf board, look to the
left and you will some trees and rocks that resemble a Kinglear. Level
2: Pinsir- Free Zapdos from his egg (see Zapdos), then in the third
room of the tunnel (the one with two Electrabuzz, look to the right
and you will see a Pinsir shadow.
Level 3: Koffing- Throw a Pester Ball in the volcano you see to the
left at the beginning of level three.
Level 4: Cubone- In level four where Vileplume is (see Vileplume),
behind it is a statue of Cubone. Once you wake Vileplume up with a
song, the statue will be visible.
Level 5: Mewtwo- When you see Weepinbell (see Weepinbell), look to
the left, and you will see some floating crystals. Snap on the biggest
one, and when it develops it will be Mewtwo.
Level 6: Dugtrio- Right at the beginning of the level you will see
a huge mountain. In fact, that is a sign of Dugtrio, so snap it when
it is in focus.
Once you have found all of the signs, you will be able to access
level "Rainbow Cloud"
Level 7: Rainbow Cloud
Mew- Mew has three stages it goes through. I will explain how to
get past them, and how to get the best shot.
Phase 1: Mew is in a Green Sphere which protects him, and he is
just looking to see what your doing. So answer him by throwing Pester
Balls or Pokemon food at the sphere. You will have to do this three
times, to move to the next phase.
Phase 2: Mew now lost itís outermost protection. Mew will now
pass by you on the left or right in a diagonal line to evade you.
Again throw Pester Balls or Pokemon food three times at the sphere to
move to the next phase. Phase 3: You have broken through itís sphere
and Mew is now chasing it. Mew will pass on your right or left after
itís sphere. It will reach it when it gets to the end of the path
unless you hit it with a Pester ball or Pokemon food while itís in
itís chasing process. If you do hit it, it will spin around, look at
you, and then teleport. To get even closer if you want, hit it again
and again to your liking right when itís about to teleport away, so
it does the spinning process again. When you get close enough, snap a
picture when itís about to teleport for a perfect pose. The hardest
thing is getting a thousand points on the size. Good luck, this will
probably end up being your best shot no matter what because of the
2,500 pt. bonus just for getting Mew.
