Pour Point for Watershed Analysis?

This is going to seem like a very elementary question, but I have not been able to find information describing what a 'pour point' is, in regards to conducting a watershed analysis.

I have the flow_direction, flow_accumulation, and fill layers all set, but in the Watershed analysis toolbox, it asks for the 'pour point' either in raster or vector form (presumably after being run through the 'snap pour point' tool).

How do I find/make pour points in order to complete the Watershed analysis? Also, what is the best way to use 'snap pour point' to ensure I have the correct locations?

Thanks very much,
