Xerneas only appears after hitting the blue orb with an Illumina Orb.
|Left Side of the Room with Gray Stone Pillars|
|Near the Collapsed Pillar on the Waterside|
Wait for the blue orb to transform into Xerneas and throw an Illumina Orb for the Pokemon to enter in its illuminated state.
Be careful not to throw a Fluffruit as this causes Xerneas to run away.
|Caption Name||Nice and calm|
Immediately after Xerneas appears, throw Illumina Orbs at Xerneas' orb to revert it to its physical form. Throw a few more Illumina Orbs at Xerneas after to make it enter the Illumina state before taking a picture.
|Caption Name||Happy vibes|
In the room with the mural, hit Xerneas' physical form with Illumina Orbs so it illuminates. Wait for Xerneas to look at the drawing on the wall before taking a picture of its 2-star pose.
|Caption Name||You don't see this everyday|
In the first room with pillars, throw an Illumina Orb at Xerneas' orb so it changes back to its physical form. Throw an Illumina Orb at Xerneas so it becomes illuminated then another orb so that it moves to the next room.
At the top of the staircase, Xerneas will change from orb form to physical form and stand there for a few seconds. This is your chance to take the 3-star pose for Xerneas.
|Caption Name||The power of life|
For this photo, we recommend setting your camera to Burst Mode.
As you enter the room with the mural, you'll see Xerneas' orb circling around the water. Throw an Illumina Orb at it or simply wait for Xerneas to revert to physical form.
When Xerneas jumps near the mural, throw an Illumina Orb to make it enter the Illumina state.
Once awake, guide the Houndoom toward Xerneas using the Scan Mode. Xerneas should use Geomancy if you did the steps correctly.
Start taking photos when Xerneas stands on its hind legs to get its 4 Star Photo and complete The Power of Xerneas request.
