The New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor is mysterious and water Pokemon can swim past you so quickly in this sea-level filled with color and wonder. Alternate routes and plenty of Pokemon to interact with keep this level interesting and full of opportunities for exploration and discovery.
As you play and take pictures, you’ll increase your research level for the area, which unlocks new Pokemon and features, so take lots of different pictures on each run. Even if you’ve already taken pictures of a Pokemon, take one each run to keep increasing your research level for the area.
Pokemon like Magikarp and Luvdisc are common and easier to find but others like Starmie, Squirtle, and even Lugia await for the most dedicated Pokemon photographers. They may not appear at first but they will appear alongside other Pokemon as your research rank increases so keep chasing those perfect shots. You’ll get better pictures as you continue to explore and make new discoveries while you rank up and unlock new Pokemon. Try to resist filling your entire camera up with pictures of Wailmer and their big, goofy grin so you have film for other Pokemon. This was my greatest challenge in this area.
New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor
This guide will list the available Pokemon, along with the 3/4 -Star opportunities I managed to find. I’ll continue to play and you should too because you never know what these Pokemon will do next as you continue your exploration in the world of Pokemon.
Below is a list of Pokemon you can find in this area:
New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor — 3-Star Opportunities
After going through the seawood before the cave, there’s a Wailmer fighting with an Octillery. Snap a photo for a quick and fun 3-star photo. Wailmer is so great in this level. Keep an eye on them for plenty of great pictures for both ratings and your personal album.
Watch for Octillery toward the bottom of the cave filled with Sharpedo. There are some great opportunities with movement and action that can give you an easy 3-star picture.
After exiting the Sharpedo-filled cave, you’ll see a Qwilfish. Hit them with a Fluff Fruit and they will blow up. Snap a photo of the oversized Qwilish for a funny 3-star picture.
After hitting research rank 2 for the level, Peliper can be seen ascending toward the surface at the beginning of the level.
Play music for Cradily in the seaweed trench and they’ll show off their sick dance moves, giving you the opportunity for a great 3-star photo.
(Research Level 2 Required) Hit them with Illumina Balls at the beginning of the level and they’ll clear boulders and open up a new path for you. Take a picture while they’re attacking the area for 3 stars. If you miss it then hit them with Illumina Balls in other parts of the course while they’re near other Pokemon. They’ll attack other Pokemon which will net you a 3-star picture. Just make sure to make it up to the Pokemon that gets attacked with some good tunes and Fluff Fruit. (Note: If you go down this path, you can also find Lugia. This information will be listed at the end of the guide.)
New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor — 4-Star Opportunities
(Research Level 3 Required) At the end of the level when you’re going up the tunnel and heading toward the exit, Magikarp is being held by a Frillish. It’s not only super cute but also a 4-star picture.
After going through the alternate boulder route, you’ll descend on a tunnel with Frillish and Mantine. It’s a dark pathway with Lanturn. At the end of the area, there are Lumineon that will dig on the seafloor if you throw Fluff Fruit near them. There’s a barely visible Clamperl buried that they’ll dig up if you toss a Fluff Fruit near it. Grab a picture of Lumineon digging it up for a 4-star photo.
You’ll end up briefly following one at the end of the level. Turn around and face them after passing them and take a picture after playing music. A photo of them dancing will get you an easy 4 stars.
This requires a few different steps but to start, you must be at Research Level 2 and will need to go down the alternate boulder path opened up by Clawitzer. After going through the tunnel, you’ll see a Lanturn. Hit it with Illumina Balls. It’ll get grabbed by Grillish after Wailord passes over you. Things get pretty busy so just try to find Lanturn as quickly as possible. Hit the Lanturn with Illumina Balls to save it from Frillish. Scan Lanturn to follow it down another path and then keep your eyes to the right for the legendary Lugia.
New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor — Other Pokemon
The Illumina Area is pretty exciting and there are a few Pokemon to snag outside of the main attraction.
Below is a list of Pokemon you can find in this area:
- Wishiwashi (Solo Form)
The main attraction here is the School Form of Wishiwashi. Hit several of them that are near each other with Illumina Balls and they’ll swim off and return as the School Form of Wishiwashi.
Hit Wishiwashi (School Form) with Illumina Balls and you can easily get some 3-star and 4-star pictures. The easiest 4-star picture to get is when Wishiwashi (School Form) creates a whirlpool near you.
The New Pokemon Snap Lental Seafloor is a pretty busy stage with a lot to take in both in pictures and just in the beauty of the sea surrounding you. Keep your eyes open while going through it a few different times and you’ll get everything. I actually kept going through it even after I was finished because of how pretty the level is. Have fun capturing Pokemon in their natural environment and be sure to check out the rest of TechRaptor’s guides if you need help with catching them all on camera.
