This is a guide to completing Sprinting in Surprise, a request in New Pokemon Snap (Pokemon Snap 2) for the Nintendo Switch. Here you can find what kind of photo you need, and how to take it, in order to clear Sprinting in Surprise, as well as the reward!
List of Contents
|Course||Sands (Day) Lv. 1 or higher|
|Target Pokemon 2||Magikarp|
|How to Unlock||・After your first expedition in Sands (Day)|
|Request Text||・“Hey, would you believe me if I told you I saw a Heliolisk running on water?”|
Once you reach the oasis section of Sands (Day), start throwing fluffruit into the water of the oasis. The goal is to keep throwing fluffruit until a Magikarp comes splashing out of the water, which will suprise the sleeping Heliolisk and cause it to start running. Throwing the fluffruit directly at the Heliolisk will not do anything.
If you're just entering the oasis, you'd want to throw fluffruit to the left side of the oasis water (the side closer to the main route), so that the Magikarp spawns behind Heliolisk, which will cause it to run towards the direction from which you came.
You can also complete the request even if you took the branching route off to the right side of the oasis. However, this time, you'd want to throw the fluffruit around where the Hippowdon and Torchic are, so that the Magikarp spawns in the direction Heliolisk is facing, which will cause it to run in the opposite direction (towards the alternate route).
After getting the Magikarp to surprise the Heliolisk, on whichever route you took, you have to snap a photo of Heliolisk as it's running on the water. It takes about 3 quick steps across the water, but it should be enough to get a photo.
There are no obtainable rewards for completing this request.

>>1 Happy to find out that the request can be accomplished from the branching route as well! Thank you for the help improving our guides! Your info helped the Walkthrough Team as they looked into it! ☺
For this I like to take the path to the right of the oasis, start throwing fruit to the left of the island where the heliolisk is, if you manage to spawn a magikarp it will waking it up prepare camera and you will see it walking in water.
