It’s been more than two decades since the original Pokemon Snap released on the N64. Nintendo is finally releasing a sequel with regrettably similar nomenclature to Apple’s “new” line. New Pokemon Snap is releasing in less than a month and many fans are wondering which Pokemon will be included. After all, the number of them has grown astronomically since the first generation released. Since the developers have been tight lipped, we’ve put together a list of everyone Pokemon we’ve managed to find in the game’s trailers, screenshots, and gameplay.

Generation 1 – Kanto Region
The original generation. It’s no surprise that the Kanto region is well represented in all of the New Pokemon Snap promotional materials. These are, after all, the most easily recognizable Pokemon considering they’re more than 20 years old.
Generation 2 – Johto Region
Surprisingly, Johto isn’t super well represented. Celebi has been front and center, but aside from that and Tyranitar, most of these Pokemon have been in the background and not a huge focus. Hopefully the list grows once the game is out.
Generation 3 – Hoenn Region
Ah, Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. This is easily the best represented set of Pokemon prior to the game’s release. It’s honestly not surprising considering the number of animal-like creatures.
Generation 4 – Sinnoh Region
Bidoof and friends are one of the smallest regions right now aside from Galar though we expect that to grow. Diamond and Pearl very well may end up the least represented generation in New Pokemon Snap.
Generation 5 – Unova Region
While Tauros was a staple of the original Pokemon Snap it seems like Boufflant has taken over that crown as the series’ staple wildlife.
Generation 6 – Kalos Region
If Sinnoh doesn’t take the crown, Kalos just might. Pokemon X and Y do have a few Pokemon in the game, but they’re few and far between.
Generation 7 – Alola Region
With Pokemon Sun and Moon’s focus on island wildlife, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Alola end up being one of the most represented regions in the upcoming release.
- Alolan Raichu
Generation 8 – Galar Region
As the most recent Pokemon generation, the Galar region has been kept under wraps when it comes to New Pokemon Snap. The only Pokemon that have been confirmed are from the three starter sets.
