How to Clear Flickering Flames

Toss Illumina Orbs at Gardevoir Throughout Winter

The first few steps will be similar to the one for the Winter Wonders request. When in the Winter Forest, you have to continually empower Gardevoir by tossing Illumina Orbs at him. He will teleport to different spots, but continue throwing Illumina Orbs at him. He will begin in front of some Deerling...

then again on the ground. However, this time around, do not throw any more Illumina Orbs once Gardevoir is back on the ground. Allow him to perform for the Deerling in front of him before teleporting away. At this point, Ninetales should be nearby overlooking your interactions with these Deerling.

Once the Gardevoir teleports away, lead the Deerling closer to the Ninetales with Fluffruit. As one of them is munching on the fruit, toss another Fluffruit to interrupt him. This will scare Deerling away, but also upset the Ninetales who has been observing you. The Ninetales should step down from his ledge at this point.

With the Ninetales down from its ledge, provoke it more by throwing an Illumina Orb, then a Fluffruit at it. This should bring it to the point where it will intimidate you by casting a Will-O-Wisp into the air. Take a photo of this moment and submit it to the professor to complete this quest.
