How to Clear Staredown for Venusaur

Hit Arbok with a Fluffruit

New Pokemon Snap - Hit Arbok with Fluffruit

When you reach the area next to the swamp, you will see an Arbok hissing at a Wooper. Hit Arbok with a Fluffruit to get it to flee. It is best to hit Arbok from behind to get the best timings for the next step.

Lure Arbok to Venusaur

New Pokemon Snap - Lure Arbok 1
Once Arbok has fled, lure it towards the tree where Venusaur is sleeping using Fluffruit. When Arbok momentarily pauses behind the tree, toss a Fluffruit to its right.

New Pokemon Snap - Lure Arbok 2
Before Arbok finishes eating the Fluffruit, toss another one to its left, luring it closer to the tree.

New Pokemon Snap - Lure Arbok 3
Once it is close enough to the tree, continuously toss Fluffruit to the left side of the tree to prevent Arbok from straying until you have a decent vantage point of Venusaur.

Wake Up Venusaur

New Pokemon Snap - Toss Illumina Orb at Venusaur

While Arbok is distracted by Fluffruit, quickly toss another Fluffruit and Illumina Orb at Venusaur. Then, quickly scan the area. You might need to scan the area up to twice before Venusaur can wake up.

Take a Photo of Their Confrontation

New Pokemon Snap - Venusaur Fleeing

Once Venusaur is awake, Arbok will start hissing at Venusaur from the other side of the tree. Capture a photo of their confrontation before Venusaur can flee.

Make sure the photo contains both Venusaur and Arbok, but the focus of the shot must be on Venusaur.
