How to Clear A Sunlit Cave

Have Clawitzer Clear the Cave Entrance

You can only fulfill this request on research level 2 of Undersea. The sunlit cave is in the alternate route that leads to the underground ruins, and the only way you can access that route on research level 2 is by having the first Clawitzer destroy the rocks blocking the path.

Throw an Illumina orb at Clawitzer as it's about to shoot at the rocks, which will cause it to fire like a cannon instead. If Clawitzer doesn't have the Illumina glow before it shoots, it will fail to destroy the rocks and the route will be shut off from entry.

Throw an Illumina Orb at Chinchou

Once you enter the cave via the alternate route, you will immediately encounter a few Chinchou. The target Chinchou is the one that emerges from your bottom left once you enter the cave. This Chinchou will be distinct because it's the only Chinchou just directly moving forward. Throw an Illumina orb at it!

Snap the Sunlit Cave

Once the target Chinchou has the Illumina glow, it will take a detour to the left, into the sunlit cave. You've failed if the target Chinchou keeps going straight instead. Once the target Chinchou enters the sunlit cave, a number of other Chinchou will follow it. The group of Chinchou will gather around the crystabloom in the sunlit cave. Snap a photo of this moment and fulfill the request!
