How to Clear Hiding in the Sand

Take the Hidden Beach Route

The Pokemon you'll need to take a photo of for this request, Stunfisk and Octillery, are at the end of the hidden beach alternate route. You can, technically, do the request without entering the hidden beach, but it'll be incredibly difficult to pull off the trigger action for the request.

Scan to Reveal Stunfisk

When you're approaching the Octillery that's underwater, use scan mode to make the Stunfisk pop out from beneath the sand.

Throw Fluffruit above Stunfisk

You have to throw fluffruit at Stunfisk to make it electrocute Octillery. Throw the fluffruit directly above Stunfisk. The fluffruit will land on the surface of the water, then sink down to the bottom a few seconds later. The fluffruit has to land on Stunfisk for the request to work.

Capture Stunfisk Shocking Octillery

After the fluffruit lands on Stunfisk, it will produce one shock of electricity. This is not the photograph that will fulfill the request. Immediately after the first shock, Stunfisk will produce a second, larger shock of electricity. Snap a photo of this moment and make sure to include Octillery in the shot. Doing so will fulfill the request.
