Prioritizes New Poses

New Pokemon Snap Star Rating

If you already have existing snaps for a Pokemon, using the Auto Select feature will submit new poses, starting from the highest star rating. This means that, if possible, the feature will select a new 4-star Bronze snap over a 2-star Diamond snap, regardless of their scores.

Manual Select or Auto Select?

Manual Select for First Run and Requests

If it's your first time running through a course, it's best to manually choose the snaps you submit for the evaluation. This lets you pick a high scoring snap instead of letting the Auto Select feature submit a higher star rating but with a lower score, since Diamond snaps are hard to come by.

You should also manually select snaps if you're aiming to complete a specific request. Using the Auto Select feature sometimes disregards snaps needed for requests and submits whichever is new or has the highest score.

Remember that you can only submit one snap of the same Pokemon per evaluation and only submitted snaps count for requests.

Auto Select for Increasing Research Levels

Research Level Up.jpg

Use the Auto Select feature when you already have most poses for each Pokemon and are just trying to rack up more expedition points to reach the max Research Level. The Auto Select feature submits the snap with the highest score (if no new poses are taken) so if you're unsure of what to pick, use this feature instead.
