Criterion Definition
Pose This rating will be high if the Pokémon is in an interesting posture.
Cut This rating will be high if the subject is close-up
Viewing angle This rating will be high if the subject is facing the camera.
Framing This rating will be high if the subject is in the center of the photo.
Other Pokémon The more Pokémon in the photo, the higher this rating will be
Background The more interesting the background, the better this rating will be

Keep in mind all of these criteria when you take a photo. The score will determine what color will be the stars associated with each of your photos.

Visuals Colors of the stars Obtaining
New Pokémon Snap: our guide to getting started Bronze Less than 3000 points
New Pokémon Snap: our guide to getting started Silver Between 3000 and 3499 points
New Pokémon Snap: our guide to getting started Gold Between 3500 and 3999 points
New Pokémon Snap: our guide to getting started Diamond More than 4000 points

This star color is purely aesthetic and does not affect your progress in the game.

Star rating

This is certainly counter-intuitive, but the number of stars associated with your photos has nothing to do with the quality of these. Indeed, we must rather understand the star system as a clue to the rarity of the context in which the Pokémon was photographed.

For example, in our image above, a Lakmécygnus taken in photo posed in water will be worth 1 star while a Lakmécygnus caught in mid-flight will be worth 3 and this regardless of the quality of the photos.

Note that for complete the game 100%, you will have to photograph all Pokémon of the game in four different types of contexts therefore corresponding to the four stars of the Photodex pages. So be on the lookout to detect a behavior or an unprecedented situation.
