How to Clear Why So Still?

Access the Swamp with Leafeon!

To go through the alternate path at the swamp, you must first toss an Illumina orb at the first crystabloom of the course. The crystabloom*will reveal footprints which you can scan to take the alternate route. You only need to do this once (in either Day or Night) before the scan function for the alternate route permanently appears, without having to light up the crystabloom again.

Then, before you yourself access the swamp route, you need to prompt Leafeon to enter before you! Throw a Fluffruit at Leafeon's rear end and it will enter the swamp route.

After entering the swamp route yourself, you'll see Leafeon standing below 3 Ariados. Use the Melody player to have the 3 Ariados lunge downward, which will spook Leafeon into the swamp with Swampert.

If you wait too long, Leafeon will run into the tree hole instead. It's recommended to time the Melody with when Leafeon looks up.

Snap a Photo of Swampert and Leafeon!

Once Leafeon is in the swamp, Swampert will wake up. Throw an Illumina orb at Swampert and it will start playfully throwing mud at Leafeon. Snap a photo of Swampert now! Doing so, will complete the request and get you a 4★ photo of Swampert (as well as Leafeon).

You also have to throw an orb at Swampert, if you don't they just sit there staring at each other.

Throw an orb at the flower just before the swamp route, then scan the footprints to get access to the swamp.
