be sure not to hit any crobat with Illumina orbs, they will disturb steelix at the spot he should sleep

I scanned and threw orbs at the noibat at the beginning (the first scan came up but steelix won’t come out when fruit thrown) continued as normal reacting to the scan and playing with steelix (don’t hit crystal bloom it will wake up crobat) and at the last segment steelix will be asleep next to noibat (it’s a one star pic) just figured it out a few minutes ago myself xD
