I’d bet all of my Pokédollars that Generation 5 will deliver the long-awaited sequel to Pokémon Snap.
This guy. This guy is the key to everything. Why give the BW rival a camera of all things!? That’s not any sort of unique character trait. There was already a picture-taking character in the series who was OH YEAH THE PROTAGONIST OF THE FIRST SNAP GAME.
I am sure of it: Trip is gonna do a Heel Face Turn
(or maybe not; maybe it’ll be fun to play as a jerk) by the end of the next anime season so that he can be the protagonist of Pokémon Snap BW. In this game, set in Unova or an unnamed parallel place much like Unova, we’ll have entered the digital age. Some Pokémon will only be visible in photographs through enhancements, enlargements, etc. And perhaps instead of mounting the ZERO-ONE at Professor Oak’s request, Trip will be on a personal picture-taking journey aboard a tour bus that takes him around to the different courses, which include Desert, Mountain, and City!
Another piece of evidence: Just look at the current series’s name. “Black and White.” …BLACK-AND-WHITE. WHAT OTHER GENERATION COULD EVER HAVE SUCH A PHOTOGRAPHIC NAME? Of course, not every photograph you take in the game would be black-and-white; that’d get boring. But maybe, just for thematic effect, your top-scoring photo will be on display set in monochrome
like all the most excellently artistic and deeply classy pieces on DeviantART.
Shoot, I’d buy the heck out of this game.
