Poké Finder

The Poké Finder allows you to take pictures of Pokémon at certain spots, called photo spots. You can take six pictures per use, after which you can choose one picture to be evaluated and gain Thumbs-Up on. The pictures can be saved to the SD card.

The Poké Finder is also the only feature that utilizes the 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS screen.


Via an Instagram-esque mini game, the pictures you take gain Thumbs-Up from other imaginary trainers. After you've gained a certain amount of Thumbs-Ups, the Poké Finder upgrades to a new version which unlocks new features. The following versions are available:
