New Pokemon Snap introduces players to the Lental region, which contains over 200 ‘mon to find and photograph throughout many different islands. But how many locations are there exactly?

After 22 years of waiting, Pokemon Snap fans have finally been treated to the next installment in the series on the Nintendo Switch, a console that couldn’t be more fitting for the point-and-shoot photography game. Not only are there a whole horde of new features, there are a ton of different zones too.

The original had seven locations ranging from a volcano to a cloud level in the heavens – does the 2021 game have more? Here’s what you need to know.

All locations in New Pokemon Snap

There are 11 courses in total in New Pokemon Snap, technically double that if you include the day and night versions of each one.

Each area is on an island, and islands can have multiple zones for you to visit. The locations are as follows:

Areas in the photography title have hidden routes for players to discover via the new Scan feature, and these pathways house many Pokemon not seen anywhere else on the island so it’s worth running through zones multiple times to see what you can discover.

Levels have a daytime and a nighttime version, and different creatures show up depending on what the time of day is. Driving through the Jungle at midnight is terrifying but very rewarding!
