The Steady Aim Research Title requires you to snap one 3-star photo each for at least 10 species of Pokemon. This guide will show you one of the easiest ways to get the research title, and how to get 10 3-star photos in one course for New Pokemon Snap (Pokemon Snap 2) on the Nintendo Switch.
List of Contents
From what we've tested, the best and easiest course to get a lot of 3-Star photos from is Park (Night) at Research Level 2.
Illumina Orbs are required. One of the poses requires Melody, while another is only available during the post-game, but you can still get 10 3-Star Photos in the same run even without either of these. Lastly, Turbo is optional, but helpful.
The Pokemon that we will try to get 3-Star photos for include the following:
There is going to be a long sequence of actions you'll have to do which will be detailed below.
Since this guide covers how to get 14 3-stars poses in one run, you'll have some room for error in case you miss out on some of the poses! Do your best to follow along with the guide, and you'll definitely get at least 10 in no time.
EnlargeAs soon as the course starts, zoom in to above the sign to your right. Wait until the Scorbunny demonstrates it's fiery kicks. Take a photo of it with regular red flames from it's kicks. Afterwards, throw an Illumina Orb at it to set up the next photo.
EnlargeIf you are in the post-game, Shaymin will be one of the Pokemon observing Scorbunny perform tricks on top of the sign. If you illuminated Scorbunny, this will make the audience very excited, including Shaymin. Take a photo of Shaymin with flowers in bloom.
EnlargeSlightly left of the sign, you should be able to spot Tangrowth napping by the stone bridge. Throw a Fluffruit at it to startle it. Take a photo of Tangrowth as it awakens suddenly.
EnlargeSlightly to your right, a Pidgeot should have landed behind the sleeping Bouffalant. Feed it a Fluffruit. Take a photo of it in glee after it consumes the Fluffruit.
EnlargeAs you approach the Crystabloom to your left, Scan to let Pinsir peek out of his dirt mound. Then illuminate the Crystabloom to trigger him to pop out. Take a photo of Pinsir as he leaps into the air.
EnlargeThrow Fluffruits at the ground just behind the Pinsir, while scanning in between throws. A Heracross should drop from the tree. Take a photo of it stunned lying on the floor.
EnlargeAs you stroll into the lake area, keep an eye to your right, Take a photo of the 3 Bidoof swimming together.
EnlargeAs you go over the Bidoof Dam, look to your left where you'll find a Swanna with a few Ducklett trailing behind. Illuminate this group, then take a photo of the glowing Swanna.
EnlargeAs the Swanna glows, the Ducklett behind should express joy. Take a photo of these happy Ducklett.
EnlargeBack on your right, a Magikarp can be spotted resting on a rock. Illuminate this Magikarp to catch it's attention. Take a photo of Magikarp as it looks around searching for what awoke it.
EnlargeAs you approach the sign before the flower field, throw Fluffruit at the Hoothoot perched on the signpost. With a direct hit, it will lose it's balance. Take a photo of it's foot exposed.
EnlargeAs you approach the sign, scan and you'll find ???'s detected just behind the sign. Play the Melody and several Caterpie will appear. Take a photo of the Caterpie peeking from behind the sign.
EnlargeAs you approach the flower field, a Dodrio to your left should spin around. Take a photo of it doing so.
EnlargeTo your left, in the distance, past the Dodrio, you should spot a Torterra that is awake. Toss a Fluffruit near it to feed it. Take a photo of it eating and celebrating at being fed.
EnlargeAs the course ends, cross your fingers and hope for the best. Ideally you could have taken up to 14 3-star photos, but to get the reward you only need at least 10. Pick out your photos and submit them to Professor Mirror.
If you were able to successfully take and submit at least 10 3-star photos, you'll unlock the Steady Aim Research Title! Congratulations!
