Pokémon Snap is a first-person rail shooter and simulation video game developed by HAL Laboratory with Pax Softnica and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It is part of the Pokémon series, and one of the first console games based on the Pokémon series. It was first released in Japan on March 21, 1999, and was later released on June 30, 1999 in North America and on September 15, 2000, in PAL regions. It was later released for the Wii's Virtual Console on December 4, 2007, in Japan, in North America on December 10, 2007, and then in PAL regions. The game plays similarly to other first-person games, viewing from the perspective of protagonist Todd Snap. The gameplay takes place on a rail, with Todd moving automatically. The objective of the game is to take pictures of Pokémon, using items such as apples and "pester balls" to achieve better shots. After each round, players are judged based on the quality of their screenshots. The Virtual Console version features the ability to send pictures taken in the game to the Wii Message Board and send them to friends, whereas the Nintendo 64 version allowed players to take their games to either Blockbuster or Lawson in either North America or Japan and have pictures from their games printed.
