The incredible history about Photo Hunter Pokemon edition development :


I’m a private video game collector for the last 27 years, always I was looking for something but for the first time in my life I found really weird and rare items without being looking for. In my last vacation in Rio Olympic games (cheers to the US swimming team all our athletes! ) I found this rare item, and I’m releasing one for sale, yes I found not only one but two! Pokemon Photo Hunter for Playstation was the result of the joint venture between part of the original Pokemon Snap for Nintendo 64 DD and the Chinese software and hardware developer SuperUFO, the joint venture for some unbelievable reason though can get licensed this questionable quality port to the Playstation platform, something that obviously never happened. The company developed the game and a mouse hardware to be used with it and as they realized the licensing will be impossible (and insane to be honest) they tried to enter the market with a “PS Compatible Version”, basically meaning playable in consoles that were modified in order to bypass copyright restrictions and avoid legal infringements. The amount of units released was very short basically sent as a sample to market response research within distributors around the globe not being superior to 50 units.


This information proceed ? i i can't find any reference to this game on internet no videos or images in 16 years ?

Looks interesting, but appears to be a home brew of sorts or "under the table" pressings and not sanctioned by Nintendo. I am leaning towards a commercial overseas release since there is a mouse included labeled to match the game. Based on description on the back cover, a simple game of spotting the differences between two screenshots. The game alludes to a PS1 version of Pokemon Snap which it is not. However, looks interesting with the 3rd party mouse though not a laser sensor mouse

Google popped up another version, a three disc package called Photo Hunter 3!

Interesting, the ball mouse has a "Photo Hunter" mode and is a different design vs the single disc version. The slide switch underneath confirms the official Playstation 1 Mouse or Nyco Trakball will not work on the series.

A curiosity if the Mouse Photo Hunt mode emulates the left Analog Stick or Dpad. Now that would be worth getting just to try out on other PS1 games! Though the mouse mode might not be a true variable speed mouse in the game controller mode; some PS1 "on screen cursor" games that do not support a mouse might benefit.
