The Alola Photo Club (Japanese: アローラフォトクラブ Alola Photo Club) is a feature introduced in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Locations

There are two Alola Photo Club locations in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: one in Hau'oli City and another in Konikoni City.

Features

The Alola Photo Club allows Trainers to take photographs of themselves alongside one of their Pokémon in a variety of ways. A wide variety of backgrounds can be used, although most require being unlocked in some way, while the player can customize their outfit, the animation of them and their Pokémon, and their positioning.

When taking a photograph, six shots will be taken in quick succession, allowing players to choose the best one, after which the phot can be edited further using a variety of frames and stickers. When completed, the photograph can be saved to the player’s Nintendo 3DS Camera roll and shared online and in-game.

Photography Modes

There are two ways of taking photographs in the Alola Photo Club: Simple Mode and Advanced Mode. In Simple Mode, options are streamlined so only the Pokémon and background are selected, with the characters performing their normal idle animations, before the photograph can be edited with frames and stickers.

In Advanced Mode, many new features become available to use for the fine-tuning of settings. The direction the player and Pokémon are facing can be freely edited alongside their positions, and the player’s outfit can be selected from multiple saved selections. The camera can also be moved in more ways, including with options to change its zoom and rotation. The player’s animation can be changed from the normal idle animation to that of any type-based Z-Move and Catastropika, while the Pokémon can use their battle animations or their ones from Pokémon Refresh, and both can be chosen to happen automatically or on command. After choosing these options, the photograph can be edited with the same frames and stickers as in Simple Mode.

Customization

A large assortment of customization options are available before and after taking a photograph. While shooting, a background can be chosen, with a list that generally expands based on how many areas in Alola have been explored, although there are some default backgrounds and some with different unlocking criteria.

Frames and stickers are added to a photograph after it has been taken, and several of these can also be unlocked in a variety of ways. Once a photograph has been saved to the player’s system, it can be accessed at any time in the Photo Album option in the main menu, where frames and stickers can be edited further.
