Professor Laventon is lending you his trusty camera to conduct photographic research around the Hisui Region!  

Using the Nintendo Switch Capture button, take a photo in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that matches the weekly theme, and upload it to Twitter.

Be sure to tag @NintendoPlayersUK and include the hashtag #NPUKHisuiSnap to secure your entry into the prize draw to win one of three Hisuian Starter Plushies! 

The contest runs for 4 weeks, with a different theme each week. Players can submit one photo each week, for a total of 4 prize draw entries overall.

1x winner will be chosen by the NPUK admin team, who will vote for their favourite overall submission. 2x additional winners will be chosen via a random prize draw from all valid entries.

Laventon's Helpful Snapshot Tips!

  • You can hold down the ZL button to switch to a first-person camera mode. Perfect for zooming in on subjects, and ensuring the player character is absent from photos.
  • Enable "HUD Toggling" in the in-game settings. This allows you to remove the information overlay by clicking-in the right control stick.

Good luck to all, and get snapping!

Participants can submit one image per theme, for a total of 4 entries. Please make sure your Twitter account is public during the competition time, so your entry can count.
Winners will be contacted via Twitter DMs within 1 week of the competition closing. If you do not respond within 72 hours, the prize will be redrawn.
The contest is open to Pokemon Legends: Arceus players in the UK and Ireland only.
Please note the prizes are due for release mid April 2022. Prizes kindly provided by the My Nintendo Store UK.
