The other new locations include Canyon and River stages, each with day and night versions.

Of course, there will be more Pokemon to snap, and legendary Pokemon Mew takes centre-stage in the trailer above.

Onix, Psyduck, Metapod and plenty more can be seen in their natural habitats, as well as a particularly springy Gyarados, while players can also shrink down to explore the game's world from a new angle.
