  • 2 stars
    • This rating is also very simple to obtain, as you just need to throw a Soft Apple at the Pokémon and wait for it to start eating it before taking a photo.
  • 3 stars

At that moment the little caterpillar will try to jump towards the birds and you can get this excellent evaluation by capturing the moment. Unfortunately, however, this event is random and consequently you may be forced to repeat the path several times to be able to get this photo.
  • 4 stars
