Total Course Score

Another leaderboard is where players are ranked based on their Total Course Score. After beating the main story, you'll unlock Course Scores, which is based on how thoroughly you explored a course. You can accumulate Course Score by taking quality shots of as much Pokemon as possible in a single run.

A great way to rack up points for Course Scores is to use Burst Mode, also unlocked at post-game, and use it on Pokemon behavior that will yield 4-star snaps.
