Pokémon Sun and Moon has a Pokémon Snap-style photo feature

Nice angle.

Pokémon Sun and Moon has a photo mode similar to much-loved N64 game Pokémon Snap.

The upcoming 3DS games let you enter first person view in certain places and snap a shot of nearby Pokémon - and you're judged on the quality of your photo.

It looks like there will be an upload mechanic for sharing your pics, and the ability to comment on a shot using pre-canned phrases. The trailer shows someone's post having received a number of upvotes, so presumably there will be a method of seeing images from friends and other players.

Spot the Dragonite.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company's new trailer includes a glut of fresh information - here are the biggest points:

Here's Type: Null, a brand new Normal-type Pokémon with classical warrior-style armour. It was synthetically created, like Mewtwo.
Next up is Jangmo-o, a dragon-type.
Sun and Moon's Alolan form of classic Pokémon Raticate - we saw the Alolan form of Rattata recently. Apparently they have become Dark type after being hunted by other Pokémon in the region.
Sun and Moon are set 12 hours apart, and events take place differently due to the different times of day in each.
Lusamine is president of The Aether Foundation, the 'good' team which rivals the bad Team Skull.
There are collectables to gather to form the legendary Pokémon Zygarde.
Here's the full trailer:
