List of Contents
|Course||Undersea (Illumina Spot) Lv. 2 or higher|
|Quest Giver||Professor Mirror|
|How to Unlock||・After completing the Lental Seafloor Illumina Spot for the first time.|
|Request Text||・“This area is infused with a lot of Illumina energy. You might see Wishiwashi behaving different than usual.”|
You need to summon the Illumina Pokemon Wishiwashi (School Form) at the start of the Illumina Spot course. The opportunity to do this is just after the Wailmer, around where the first two crystabloom are.
In this area, you will encounter schools of fish comprised by 3 Wishiwashi (Solo Form) and 2 Finneon. You need to throw Illumina orbs at these schools of fish until the 3 Wishiwashi (Solo Form) have the Illumina glow. You'll know you've succeeded when the school of Wishiwashi (Solo Form) boost off into the distance. You'll need to do this to at least 3 of these schools of fish in this area.
Note that you don't need the crystabloom to complete this request. It's even much simpler to just throw Illumina orbs directly at the Wishiwashi (Solo Form), rather than to time it with when they pass by the crystabloom.
Succeeding at giving these schools of fish the Illumina glow, you will then encounter the Illumina Pokemon Wishiwashi (School Form). Throw Illumina orbs at it until it reaches its maximum Illumina glow (denoted by the green glow that appears on its scales). It will then swim around to create an underwater vortex. Snap the photo of Illumina Wishiwashi (School Form) and make sure to get the swirling vortex in the shot!
Note that Illumina Wishiwashi (School Form) only creates the underwater vortex in the first area it can be summoned. The areas are easily distinguishable anyway; first area has the Wishiwashi (Solo Form) swimming with Finneon, second area has the Wishiwashi (Solo Form) with Luvdisc, and the third area has the Wishiwashi (Solo Form) swimming on their own. The request only triggers in the first area with the Finneon.
The Professor Mirror (Heart-Eyes) profile icon is obtained after completing the Swirling Energy request and can be used to customize your profile.
