New Pokemon Snap can be a serene gaming experience, allowing you to slow down and take thoughtful pictures of Pokemon out in the wild. However, you’re not interested in sitting through this, either because you’re out for a specific target or because you couldn’t care less about the scenery. We read you loud and clear, and that’s why we’re here to show you how to use the Turbo function in New Pokemon Snap.
We’d be remiss to mention, though, that this information comes with some light spoilers for the game. If you’d rather avoid these at all costs, focus on progressing through the main story missions until you’ve completed every task on Maricopa Island and then come back to read this guide.
How to Use the Turbo Function in New Pokemon Snap
The Turbo function becomes available in New Pokemon Snap after you’ve taken a picture of the Illumina Pokemon on Maricopa Island. If you need some help with this task, we have a guide you can check out here.
After you’ve done this, you can increase the speed of the NEO-ONE vehicle by pressing ZR. You’ll then move through the environment you’re currently in more quickly without having to sit through scenery you’ve already seen a thousand times.
This can be especially useful if you’re looking to grab a specific type of picture of a certain Pokemon, or want to test out their different behaviors without wasting too much time.
That’s all there is to say about it, really. It’s a fairly straightforward mechanic, and you should get the gist of it after using it for yourself once or twice.
Hopefully, this cleared up how to use the Turbo function in New Pokemon Snap. For more on the game, check out our guide wiki for plenty of tips, tricks, and info on other key mechanics.
