How to Clear Flopping by the Water

Throw a Fluffruit at Pidgeot

Once you enter the lake area of the course, Pidgeot will fly overhead and land on the path. It will then make its way towards the cliffs. Toss a fluffruit at the Pidgeot as it perches on the cliff, making sure the fruit hits the Pidgeot.

Wait for Pidgeot to Land on the Tree

After you hit the Pidgeot with the fluffruit, it will fly up in the sky and eventually land on top of the tree found near the Magikarp.

Make Magikarp Jump

Throw a fluffruit next to Magikarp to make it jump. Pidgeot should spot the Magikarp and start flying once again.

Take a Photo of Pidgeot Catching Magikarp

Ready your camera and aim it just a little bit above the Magikarp in the water. Pidgeot will soon come swooping down from the air and snatch the Magikarp from the water. Make sure to take the photo quickly since the action only lasts for a few seconds.

The picture has to be of Magikarp, not Piggeotto or it doesn't count

It also works if you get a photo of pigeot flying away with magikarp if you aren’t fast enough to get him being picked up. Magikarp has to be the photo focus though.
