Hiding in Plain Sight

To take a photo of Shaymin, you need to throw Illumina Orbs at a specific cliffside near the first Crystabloom.

If done correctly, a small silhouette appears and starts to hop near the cliff's edge. Take a photo of it to achieve 1 Star.

Best Buddies

After throwing Illumina Orbs at the cliffside, wait for Shaymin to jump on Meganium's head.

Take a photo of the hedgehog Pokemon while it is on top of Meganium's head to achieve 2 Star.

How to Take Shaymin 3 Star Photo

Just Landed

Taking a 3 Star Photo of Shaymin requires timing as well as the Neo-One's Turbo function.

Throw some Illumina Orbs at the cliffside and wait for Shaymin to appear. Use Turbo to get ahead of Meganium and see their interaction from the front.

Watch closely and take a photo of Shaymin as soon as it lands on top of Meganium's head to get its 3 Star Photo. You can also take a photo of it jumping in midair to achieve 3 Star.

How to Take Shaymin 4 Star Photo

Caption Name A bit unusual!

About to Jump

Similar to the 3 Star Photo, you need to watch and wait for Shaymin to hop to Meganium.

First, throw some Illumina Orbs at the cliffside for Shaymin to appear from the shadows. Use Turbo to get ahead of Meganium.

Wait for the two Pokemon to interact and take a photo of Shaymin as soon as it jumps towards Meganium to get its 4 Star Photo.
