The lights are on
Since its inception in1996, Pokémon has remained relevant in gaming culture. Of course the fanatic fervor has calmed since the late 90s, but I still remember a time when each new Pikachu-branded product made me feel warm and fuzzy. Pokémon Snap, a photography game for the N64 was one of those surprising spin-offs that proved to be just as much fun as the main entries. For this weeks Replay, we take a look back at the on-rails shutterbug shooter.
Join Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we travel across Professor Oak's natural Pokémon habitat. We cruise the beach, a river, and even a fiery volcano in search of shots that outshine the photographs already saved onto the dusty N64 cartridge. Keep your eyes peeled for marvels like incapacitated Charmeleons, infuriatingly stupid Slowpokes, and emotionally confused Magmars. Remember to stay tuned after the Pokémon Snap Replay for an extra special, and extra educational Replay Roulette. (Be patient, the video takes a minute or two to load).

You could have made the slowpoke evolve by leading it towards where the clam sign was.
Sweet! I finally got to see this Replay! For some reason here on the main page of this one I cant watch it. But when I click on the video on the replay hub player it will play. This also happens when I try to watch Mario Party 3. Also I didnt know if you Dan or anyone else knew this but there is a replay "Winter Games" that is not shown here on the replay page but only on that Replay Player. I loved this replay it was hilarious. I was am glad I finally got to see it.
Awesome replay! I had always wanted to play Pokemon Snap back when it released, looked like it might've been pretty okay. That Elmo game looked awful, but I guess it does count if it buys you time w/ your kid/s occupied! Keep up the good replays.
I'd still like to see a replay of Call of Cthulhu:Dark Corners of the Earth for Xbox.
Why can't I watch the old ones?
This one is refusing to work. A shame; I spent a few all-nighters getting everything in Pokemon Snap as a kid.
Kukuna evolves into Beedrill, and Metapod evolves into Butterfree
