The new Pokemon Snap update includes three new areas, and 20 new Pokemon to find. One of the new areas is the Barren Badlands of Voluca Island- a poisonous and strange place full of swamps and geysers. Find Pokemon on the rocky cliffs or deep underground and snap them before they dart away.

We will update this list with more detail when we have discovered them all and share the info with you.
