New Pokemon Snap is bursting at the seams with photography potential with over 200 ‘mon to discover and snapshot. And if that wasn’t already exciting enough, some of them are Legendary.

After 22 years and a lot of pleading from fans of the N64 game, the next installment in the Snap series is finally here. Not only does it bring a whole host of new features, it also adds onto the original roster of 63 ‘mon by an incredible amount.

In the Nintendo 64 classic, Mew was the final reward for beating all of the courses, and Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno were also in the game. New Snap also has Legendary Pokemon – and it’s more than you may think!

In early April, a lengthy gameplay trailer was released on the Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel, showing a deep dive into the Lental region’s features and monsters. 

Right at the end, the video showed off an underwater landscape, and who just happens to swim on by? Only the insanely majestic Psychic/Flying beast, Lugia.
