Since then it’s been remastered for a new format in the Nintendo Switch.

It starts off at 59.99 new anywhere you go.

The remastering of this classic game proved to be a big improvement since the point is capturing images it fits the switch format.

Fans compare to the feeling of having a real camera to take pictures of the Pokémon in the game.
