Snowfields (Night) Walkthrough: List of Pokemon and How to Unlock

How to Clear Wish Upon a Shining Sky

1. Unlock the First Branching Route at Snowfields (Day)

Start Snowfields (Day) at Reseach Level 2. From the starting point, look to your left to find a Sandslash and take a photo of it.

2. Follow the Sandslash and Take Its Photo

Follow the Sandslash's trail and take a photo of it on a hill just above the Beartic and Cubchoo.

3. Wait for the Sandslash to Dig through the Snow

Look to your right and wait for Sandslash to reappear again. After it digs through the snow, run a scan to head through the snow and reveal the first Branching Route.

4. Start Snowfields (Night) and Head to the Branching Route

After unlocking this Branching Route, start Snowfields (Night) and set the Research Level to 2. Follow the same route leading through a snow.

5. Throw an Illumina Orb at Crabominable

Throw an Illumina Orb at the Crabominable and wait for it to wake up the Abomasnow.

6. Take a Photo of Froslass

After the Abomasnow wakes up, look above and take a photo of Froslass as soon as it appears.

7. Run a Scan and Head to the Branching Route

Run a scan and take the second Branching Route to head through the snow.

8. Throw an Illumina Orb at the Jynx Sitting on Top of Avalugg

Throw an Illumina Orb at the Jynx found above the Avalugg. Aim high to throw the orb at a long distance.

9. Wait for Suicune to Appear and Take the Photo

Look to your right and wait for Suicune to appear. Use Burst Mode to take Suicune's photo to complete the request and get its 1 Star Photo.

Optional: Take a Photo of Suicune Growling at the Delibird for a 3 Star Photo

If you throw an Illumina Orb at Suicune, it will stop running and proceed to growl at the Delibird.

While it is not required to follow these steps, taking a photo of Suicine growling is an alternate option to complete this request and will also earn you its 3 Star Photo.

I took a pic of it standing on the ice past the goalpost and got credit. Growling at Delibird is not required, but would probably make a good 4 star pic if you can catch it. Suicune is so fast. 🥴

i can confirm this as well, you just need to take a photo of it as it's running toward you
