If you're thinking about beginning your illustrious career in Pokemon photography, you're probably thinking about purchasing (or have already bought) Nintendo's newest offering - New Pokemon Snap.

The Lental region covers many courses, with at least 200 Pokemon to photograph and catalogue, but how long does it take to beat New Pokemon Snap? And is it even "beatable"? 

How many courses are there in New Pokémon Snap?

New Pokemon Snap contains 23 fantastic and beautiful courses spread across the Lental region, including day and night regions, and a special mystery region we'll keep under wraps for spoiler-free purposes.

Courses are unlocked the more you explore them, and the more you level up on each course (Research Levels) and complete objectives within New Pokemon Snap's storyline.

New Pokémon Snap length

Completionists will be happy to know that the storyline for New Pokemon Snap doesn't take too long at all if you aren't into leisurely cruising through courses and taking in the scenery - roughly 10 to 13 hours. 


This would mean you'd be focusing on the story and tasks only, and taking fabulous photos, instead of playing around with the photo editor mode and giving Caterpie a moustache.

New Pokemon Snap can last as long as you want it to, with tons of fun features to play around with. LenTalk requests (of which there are over 100) are special photo quest for you to complete, and these tasks provide hours and hours of fun; like trying to catch Quagsire diving into a pool.

You can also upload your best photos to the internet for other New Pokemon Snap players around the world to see, and even award Sweet Medals to.


There are a plethora of things to do in New Pokemon Snap, so climb into your NEO-ONE, choose a course, and start snapping!
