This a complete walkthrough for the story progression in the New Pokemon Snap (Pokemon Snap 2) for the Nintendo Switch. Learn about the glowing crystabloom locations, objectives needed to complete to unlock the next courses, and how to progress through the story!
You can start racking up Photodex Score, increase the Research Level of the courses, and take photos of different Pokemon poses before you complete the main story but take note that special features are unlocked as you progress through the game and are super helpful for taking the perfect shots.
We recommend completing the story first to unlock every feature available for better experience and to make these activities easier and more enjoyable.

You can find the glowing crystabloom that gives the Illumina Orb for Aurus Island right at the beginning of Ruins. In the area where Eldegoss gather, look above on your right and you will see the glowing crystabloom by the cliff.
After obtaining the Illumina orb for Aurus Island go back to the Ruins and light up all six crystablooms inside. Doing so will automatically lead you to a branching path and unlock the last Illumina Spot. If you miss one crystabloom, you'll have to retry the level for another attempt.
