How to Clear Climbing the Lavafall

Toss an Illumina Orb at Slugma

Though several Slugma can be found around the course, we have found only three that will climb up lavafalls if you throw Illumina Orbs at them.

Slugma Locations
Location 1 (Lv. 1 and 3) The first Slugma can be found swimming towards the first lavafall to your left when you enter the lava chamber. This Slugma can easily be missed since it is at the very start of the course, but it offers the best opportunity for close-up shots.
Location 2 (Lv. 1) The second Slugma can be found in the middle of the lava chamber. Though this Slugma is the slowest and easiest to hit, it does not give you the best photos.
Location 3 (Lv. 1) You can find the last Slugma approaching the final lavafall of the course. It will surface from the lava and quickly swim towards the lavafall before disappearing. This Slugma is the hardest to hit among the three.

Capture a Photo as It Climbs the Lavafall

Once you hit the Slugma with an Illumina Orb, it will submerge itself momentarily in the lava before climbing up. Quickly take a photo of the Slugma before it reaches the top.
