How to Clear Near the Water's Edge

Lure Pikachu to the Stunfisk

It's going to take a lot of fluffruit...

As you approach the beach in the final area of Beach (Day), you will immediately encounter a single Pikachu. Throw fluffruit to lure Pikachu to the sandbank across it, where there is a Stunfisk lying on the sand.

Snap Pikachu Surfing Stunfisk

Once Pikachu is succesfully lured to the sandbank, it will run up to Stunfisk and start surfing on it. Snap a photo of Pikachu surfing on Stunfisk!

TIP: If you're worried about the NEO-ONE moving too far from Pikachu, don't forget that it slows down when you enter zoom mode while looking behind you on the course!
