Pokémon Snap (ポケモンスナップ Pokémon Sunappu?) is a first person rail shooter made by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 game console. It is about a Pokémon photographer who has to take pictures of all the Pokémon on an island. It only features about 63 of the 151 Pokémon that existed at the time the game was made. Players could take their pictures to either Blockbuster (in North America) or Lawson (in Japan) to have them printed.

The game was released for the Wii's Virtual Console service in 2007. Players can send pictures taken in the game to the Wii's Message Board and share them with friends.
