New Pokémon Snap: how to get 4 stars by photographing Meganium

New Pokémon Snap has finally made its debut and we will explain in our guide how to have all the stars with Meganium

Last April 30 debuted on physical and non-physical showcases New Pokémon Snap to the delight of a community never really satisfied with adventures based on pocket monsters and Poké balls, indeed, cameras in this case. Yes, because the title in question, more than the famous red and white spherical instrument with the button in the center, focuses everything on making us take unforgettable snapshots of Nintendo’s creatures and Game Freak.

This time, however, instead of the famous software house led by Satoshi Tajiri, Bandai Namco thought about following up on the first “photographic” adventure in Pokémon sauce that debuted in the now distant year 1999 on the immortal Nintendo 64.

In our guide on Pokémon Snap we are going to show you how to take pictures a Meganium (yes, the final evolution of the historical second generation Chickorita grass starter) in order to obtain all the 4 stars available for evaluation.

Things to know before collecting Meganium’s 4 stars in New Pokémon Snap

We know you can’t wait to get to the heart of the guide at 4am stars of Meganium in New Pokémon Snap that you are reading but first allow us to provide you with some useful preliminary information on the aforementioned Pokémon. Meganium is truly a sight to behold in New Pokémon Snap, as it is the first Pokémon Illumina that you will meet. It has the bluish aura typical of the Illumina phenomenon and, considering how big the Pokémon in question is, it will be impossible not to be captivated by its charm. Basically, Meganium can be considered a bit like the first real “boss”Of the game, having its specific stage linked to it. You will have to photograph the imposing creature we are talking about alone, without any other obstacles. You will later revisit the Stage Illumina which can be found a couple of times to get all the stars, so let’s see below what the requirements are to meet Meganium’s Photodex entry.

1 Stella: Take a simple photo of Meganium to complete the first star requirement, nothing more.
2 stars: After Meganium interacts with any Crystal Blossom in the surrounding area and thus obtains the Illumina effect, it will start emitting its cry in full happiness. Capture this exact moment for the 2-star photo.
3 stars: Sometimes Meganium will stop moving around the area and look around as if looking for something. Take a picture exactly when the Pokémon turns its head, both left and right. That’s all.
4 stars: What you need to do is take a picture of Meganium when the Pokémon runs around the field with joy. It does this as you approach the last part of the area, and sometimes runs around the tall tree there. To avoid spoilers, we’re just telling you that you can actually interact with that tree in some way, but it doesn’t have to do with the 4-star requirement. Get closer to that point to see what you can find there. Unfortunately, we are not sure what exactly triggers the behavior of Meganium that we have just described, we happened to observe it in a completely random way.
