New Pokemon Snap: Flopping by the Water Guide
Before you receive this task, you should have a Research Level 3 during the day in Florio Nature Park. You will be assigned this task when you have passed the Crystalbloom and taken the four-star Emolga photo. After arriving at the Bidoof building, you will notice a Pidgeot flying down the trail and landing on a hill.
In order to change Pidgeot's direction, you should throw Fluffruits to irritate the Pidgeot until the flying Pokemon places itself on a tree.
After making Pidgeot move, walk down a trail over the Bidoof damn until you spot the Pidgeot again. There, a Magikarp will be appearing from the water to the right. Throw a few Fluffruits at the Magikarp to irritate it and encourage the Water-Type Pokemon to jump higher.
The Pidgeot will then place its attention on the Magikarp and fly down to grab it. As soon as the Pidgeot grabs Magikarp, take a photo of the scene and send it to Professor Mirror. Fans speculate that the photo will be a guaranteed four-star result.
