Pokémon Snap wasn't always a Pokémon game. In fact, the inclusion of Pokémon was apparently met with some resistance initially.

A recent episode of Did You Know Gaming looks at the history of the surprisingly popular Pokémon offshoot, and how it came to exist.

As a random aside, we recently came across a high-quality version of the Pokémon Snap TV commercial among our assorted old VHS promotional videos and uploaded it to YouTube. Enjoy!
