There are several good picture opportunities for Pikachu:

Surfing Pikachu - Beach Level
When you start the level, throw apples at the Pikachu until he gets on the surfboard, then snap some pics.

Pikachu on a Stump - Beach Level
When you get to a place in the level where Meowth first comes out of the bush chasing Pidgey, shoot pester balls in the bushes until Scyther comes out. This should make two Pikachus jump on the stumps. If you have the Poké Flute, play something to make them worth more.

Pikachu on a Ball - Tunnel Level
Take a photograph of the first Pikachu that appears. He will run backwards. Take another picture of the Pikachu and he will jump on Electrode. Take a photograph of that scene for extra points.

Speed Pikachu - River Level
When you get to the end of the level, you will see a log with Pikachu on it. Either snap a pic of him, or throw something at him to make him run. This is probably the hardest one to get.

Balloon Pikachu - Cave Level
When you get to the part of the level where the Jynxs are around the egg, look up to see a Zubat holding Pikachu. If you time it right, you can throw a pester ball and hit the Zubat or Pikachu. When he comes down on balloons, snap some pics of him.

Flying Pikachu - Cave Level
After you have gotten Pikachu down from the Zubat, play the Poké Flute to get the Articuno out of the egg. When you go into the room where the Jigglypuffs are singing (if you helped them out earlier in the level), turn around quickly and you should see Pikachu flying around on Articuno. Snap some pics of that.

Found in the River Level. Pass the Metapods, then look right when you see Psyduck near a bucnh of logs. Hit the wood-appearing objects that are flying around with a Pester Ball and Porygon will appear. Hit it with another Pester Ball and it will change into its original colors.

Found in the Valley Level. Throw a Pesterball at a Geodude and a Sandshrew will come out of the ground.

Found in the Valley Level. Near the beginning, you will end up near 2 Geodudes hanging from a cliff. Throw pester balls at them both, and a Graveler will fly down. After he crases down a Sandslash will pop up from the ground.

Found in the Beach Level. Throw a pester ball into the tall grass. A Scyther will pop up.

Found in the Valley Level. Take a photograph of Staryu. It will circle around you. When you get to the whirlpool, Staryu will fly in and come out as Starmie.

Found in the Cave Level. In the cave near the sign there will be a Weapinbell circling a puddle. Knock him into the puddle and he will become a Victreebel.

Found in the River level. Reach the point where you find the first Slowpoke. Find the flower with green smoke pouring out the top. Play the Poke Flute and a Vileplume will jump up and start dancing.

Found in the Tunnel Level. Lure a Pikachu over to the egg with lightning on it. When it gets close, play the pokeflute and the Pikavhu will Thunderstrike the egg. The egg will hatch and Zapdos will appear.


You will not be able to take pictures of the signs until Professor Oak asks you to. Most of the signs (the tunnel being the exception) are at the beginning of the levels.

At the beginning you will see a Pikachu and a surf board. Almost directly across is the rock formation that is the sign. You have to pass it by then look behind to see it.

You can only get this sign after you have the Poke Flute. After the first part of the cave you will see a Pikachu and an egg. You must lure the Pikachu to the egg with pokefood and then play the flute. Have your camera ready, because when the egg bursts a Zapados will come out. Snap the Zapados and the proceed further into the cave. You will see a shadow being cast by a film projector. Snap this because it is the sign.

You have to be quick about getting this sign. Right at the beginning when the Rapidash runs by turn to the left and throw a pester ball into the lava crater. The smoke formed is the sign. Quickly snap this one or you'll miss it.

Around the first bend there will be a Vileplu blocking the sign. Play the pokeflute to make it dance. The sign will appear where the poison cloud was.

This sign is in the middle of the course. There will be a Jigglypuff being chased by a Koffing. Throw some pokefood at the Koffing then turn to the left. There will be a bunch of stars/crystals. Snap a picture of the middle one and you will have the sign.

This is the easiest sign to find. It is at the very beginning. It is straight ahead when you start the course.
