I came close to throwing my Switch at the wall. Despite taking countless pics of Wingul doing loop to loops I finally gave a pic taken the exact precise way that the game considers valid that cleared the challenge. However all of a sudden the game froze before the auto save so I called it a count, put it in sleep mode and had a cig but when I came back it had unfroze itself. Thank fudge!

....Yeah, these challenges are a curse...they're there to make us suffer. lol

Just beat the main story a few hours ago, and I'll say this, that Illumina Steelix was probably the most annoying thing to get a photo of

These challenges have proper ruined the game for me now. I'm hoping there will be an update so they are less ridiculously fussy or at the very least show a pic clears a challenge when selecting them before submission to the professor.

....Or give us better hints...or, something. Like, Meganium's lost friend? I threw everything I had at that stupid big tree and a bunch of bees and an owl came out? That's not enough friends for him? wtf? >.<

@Joeynator3000 Hoothoot is the pal for that one.

The clues being bad isn't as annoying to me as when I have taken a pic of something, knows it's right but it doesn't count and then an identical pic somehow does clear it 3-4 tries later.

Well, I tried taking a bunch of pics there but it never counts, so I dunno...and Meganium just runs on by ignoring the tree most of the time. >.<

NGL I've just given up on the challenges for now, and it's not really affecting my enjoyment of the game. There's enough enjoyment in trying to discover special events for myself, and if I just happen to complete a challenge that's a nice bonus.

Now in the post-game and still feel I'm seeing something new every run through, but also have no clue how to get the better pictures (or even better than one star) for some Pokemon.

I love the original Pokemon Snap, but it is hilariously inconsistent and weird with how its scoring system works, so hearing people have issue when they're asked for specific things doesn't shock me too much.

game randomly crashes when trying to upload pic
...I guess I'm done with this game, then?...TwT

Also, I keep getting pics where the Pokemon are in mid-blink, it's funny. lol

My new goal is to make the best pics out of this face. lol

EDIT: Got a new one, Inkay. lol

Anyone have any advice on leveling up the Research Camp? I've still got 14,000 exp to go, but even on a good run I'm lucky if I get anywhere close to 2000 exp. Do I just grind?

Yeah I kinda gave up on that, lol.

I know part of the fun is figuring out the secrets yourself, but some of them in this game...in general, are way out there. So for some of them I ended up looking up a guide...

Like the Research Camp, it has two special Vivillons...have fun looking for them on your own. lol

@Joeynator3000 vivillons? I've not even seen them, nor have they been mentioned in any guide I've seen.

I find sometimes even using a guide some of the tricks are difficult to pull off, and even then you have to get the snap at the exact moment.

They've definitely made things trickier than the original.

I think one of them requires you to unlock the second starting point in that area, not sure about the other, but yeah...one of them is like...HOW? How do you figure this out on your own? xD

I've only had this game a few days and so far I haven't heard anything about leveling up a research camp.

Just working through the "story" to unlock new areas is pretty chill, but all these darn optional requests can bite me.

Managed to level up the Research Camp with help from a guide. Still a little stumped on some other stages though.

Here's a excerpt from Gamer Journalist's guide:

To complete An Eevee Party request, enter the lab to find Eevee and Stoutland sleeping. Scan four times and throw Illumina Orb to wake them both up. Scan again to reveal Cutiefly behind the television. Hit two Cutiefly with Illumina Orb to make them follow Eevee. Throw an Illumina Orb at Eevee before it jumps, and take a picture of a glowing Eevee moving its head back and forth.

All of this has to be achieved in a matter of seconds! Really goes to show how obscure some of these methods are - how did anyone discover this?!

@timleon that’s fudging nuts like why do you need to scan it 4 times?!

It seems excessive to keep complaining about the challenges but they are proper stupid and almost ruin the game for me.
