Blockbuster Pokémon Snap Stations:

In 1999, Blockbuster teamed up with Nintendo of America Inc. to create a Pokémon Snap promotion exclusively in its participating stores from August 1999 through November 23, 1999 in the United States and Canada.

During the promotion, players could visit their local participating Blockbuster store to print stickers of their favorite Pokémon characters featured in Pokémon Snap. Players could purchase a collectible Pokémon Snap smart card for $3 at their local Blockbuster to activate a specially designed Pokemon Snap and then insert their Pokémon Snap cartridge into the machine to activate the gallery. Players could then select the pictures from their cartridge that they wished to print and the machine would print them out on a piece of sticker paper.

Virtual Console Differences:

When the Virtual Console version of Pokémon Snap​ was released for the Nintendo Wii, it was not a straight port and it included a few new features exclusively available for that version. Photos taken from in the game can be posted to the Wii Message Board and then can then be sent to a friends Wii's.

Features:

  • Snap pictures of your favorite Pokémon as you travel to Pokémon Island and meet Professor Oak to begin a safari to take the best possible photographs of 63 different Pokémon as they exist in the wild, undisturbed by humans.
  • Create your own Pokemon album where you can save 60 of your favorite photos.
  • Snap owners can bring in their cartridge and print special sticker sheets of their favorite Pokemon characters at participating Blockbusters.
  • Rumble Pak support.
