New Pokémon Snap Ho-Oh: Everything You Need to Know

Access your Lental Map in order to locate this Legendary Pokémon in the Voluca region. There, Ho-Oh will be waiting at the level 3 Volcano map in Fireflow Volcano. Ho-Oh can be found in three spots: the sky, the place that you initially spawn, and a spot that is further down the volcano's path. Fans suggest that players should snap a photo of Ho-Oh at the start of the map.

After completing the main story, professional Pokémon photographer Todd will assign you to the Slice of Rainbow mission. Todd hints at a "Legendary Pokémon around the volcano" and tells players to focus at the sky.

If you're having trouble finding Ho-Oh, aim your camera towards the sky and spin it in circles. After spotting Ho-Oh and traveling into the cave area of the volcano, you will receive three rainbow feathers which will generate Ho-Oh in front of you. These feather can be found on the right trail that leads into the Typhlosion chamber.

Throw food by pressing Y and take expressive photos of this Legendary Pokémon.

When you've completed the quest, Professor Mirror can rate your photos and fans speculate that Ho-Oh photos are an instant four stars.
