A {{Nintendo 64}} game based on the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series later released on the {{Wii}} Virtual Console. You have to [[GottaCatchThemAll CATCH THEM ALL!]] [[RecycledInSpace on a photo safari]]. The game plays as a RailShooter but with a camera, with points for capturing Pokémon in certain poses, or having multiple Pokémon in one shot. Professor Oak has provided you some items to help you on your journey, which can be used to draw out Pokémon or get them into different poses.

* {{Feelies}}: During the game's release, players could take their cartridges to Blockbusters (Toys R Us in Australia) and print out stickers of the photos they took. Much like VideoGame/StarTropics, this was digitally simulated in the VirtualConsole rerelease. Once per day, the player can send a picture from the gallery to the Wii Message Board.

The Wii U version doesn't have this function, but it's possible to achieve the same result by posting screenshots to Miiverse.

* BossOnlyLevel: For a given value of "boss", [[spoiler:the Rainbow Cloud is simply a long, straightforward level where you must get the best possible picture of Mew.]]



* FloatingInABubble: [[spoiler:Mew.]]

to:

* FloatingInABubble: [[spoiler:Mew. Its bubble prevents its from getting its picture taken, so you have to break its shield to expose it; and optionally throw one final Pester Ball at Mew when it's out of its shield to get a perfect pose, though you must be quick.]]



* SuddenlyVoiced: This is the first Pokémon game that uses PokemonSpeak in place of cries.

* SuddenlyVoiced: This is the first Pokémon game that uses PokemonSpeak in place of cries. Todd and Oak also vocalize here and there, which wasn't common in games back then.

** Surfing Pikachu and Flying Pikachu (known here as "Balloon Pikachu) make appearances as references to [[{{TabletopGame/Pokemon}} the Trading Card Game]]. This is more evidenced by the fact that the surfboard Surfing Pikachu pretends to surf on is pink.

* ContinuityNod:
** Jigglypuff uses the same microphone/marker from the animé to sing.
** The Ditto in the cave that transform into Bulbasaur can't seem to change their faces, which at first just seems to be a way to clue the player in on what they actually are. This was actually a problem that was shared by a Ditto that appeared in the anime who was able to transform into whatever it's trainer requested but its face always stayed exactly the same no matter what form it took.
** In the River stage, you can get a Slowpoke to fish with its tail. A Shellder will then clamp on its tail, causing it to evolve into a Slowbro. This is a reference to how Slowpoke evolves according to various Pokédex entries (in reality, however, they evolve through normal leveling up)
** Similar to Slowpoke's case, in the Tunnel stage, you can get three Magnemite to come near each other using Pokémon food, which causes them to become a Magneton. A reference to the fact that Magneton is three Magnemite linked together through magnetism (again, in reality, they evolve through leveling up).

** A Snorlax at the Beach will wake up and dance when the Poké Flute is played. The Poké Flute is the only way to get Snorlax to move in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', as well as their remakes.

** You can find a Dragonite in the River stage by throwing Pester Balls in to a whirlpool. This is a reference to a [=PokéDex=] entry that states that it lives somewhere in the sea.

This game has nothing to do with one of the three mascots of Rice Krispies (although trademark problems with Kellogg's did cause uncertainty about the player character's name for a while). Or a [[ChalkZone cute blue and white humanoid drawing]].
