How to Clear Sitting and Waiting

Seviper and Zangoose.pngSeviper and Zangoose will battle

The battle between Seviper and Zangoose is the trigger for the Sitting and Waiting request, so be sure to do this part first. Each time you attempt the request, you'll need to follow these steps first.

If you snap a photo of Seviper battling with Zangoose, you'll also be able to fulfil the request for When Archenemies Meet, so it's a good idea to get them on the same run.

After entering the water, take the branching path, which can be found by scanning the area.

Throw an Illumina Orb at the Crystalbloom


A Primarina will be on the path you take, so throw an Illumina Orb at the nearby Crystalbloom. This will trigger the Illumina Phenomenon in the Primarina, who will begin singing a new song.

Take a photo of the Zangoose on the shore

On the other side of the beach of Primarina, you should see Zangoose, who is put in a good mood after the new song is sung. Zoom in and get a photo to complete the request.

You can also get a 4 star photo of Primarina

Getting a photo of the singing Primarina will earn you a 4 star photo. Since you can take it from up close, it is a really easy way to get a diamond rating too, but don't forget to snap one of Zangoose as well!

At the beginning of the course, be sure to hit Primarina with an Illumina orb as she in the middle of the water. This will make her swim left when she jumps off the rock, instead of right. Continue on the course and take the path to the left where Zangoose is sitting. Primarina will be singing next to the Crystabloom. Light up the Crystabloom which will make her sing a different song. Be sure to snap a picture of Zangoose during her new song. This is what he's been waiting for! :) ~Meranda
