Hit by a Fluffruit

Taking a 2 Star Diamond photo of Pinsir is almost the same as taking the 1 Star. You just need to hit Pinsir with a Fluffruit and wait for it to look alert. Make sure not to zoom in, the entire body should be present in the frame.

Caption Name Dramatic entrance!

A Surprised Pinsir

After passing through the first stone bridge at the start of the course, scan the area until you discover Pinsir buried on the ground. Throw an Illumina Orb at it and it will jump out looking like it is trying to scare you. Capture that moment to achieve a 3 Star Diamond photo. Make sure your camera is ready before throwing an Illumina Orb, Pinsir jumps so fast!

Caption Name Which one's stronger?

Pinsir fighting Heracross

To earn a 4 Star photo of Pinsir, snap a photo of Pinsir during its fight with Heracross. Follow these steps in order to cause a fight between Pinsir and Heracross:

1 When approaching the first crystabloom in Park (Night), scan to reveal Pinsir's horns. Throw an Illumina orb at them for Pinsir to pop out.
2 After Pinsir starts walking away, throw fluffruit onto or behind the dirt mound it came from. Scan a second time and a Heracross should fall down from a tree.
3 After doing so, Pinsir and Heracross will meet up again before the final area of the course and start fighting.

This photo can be taken while completing the requests Where It Snacks and Snoozes or Best Frenemies.
