New Pokémon Snap: how to get all the stars while photographing Hoothoot

New Pokémon Snap has finally made its debut and we explain in our guide how to get all the stars for Hoothoot

Historical fans (and maybe even some “new generation”) will probably already know: last Friday April 30 the new incarnation of the historical “photographic” adventure of 1999 has arrived in the windows of physical and virtual stores, New Pokémon Snap. At the time, the title came out on Nintendo 64 allowed for the first time (together with Pokémon Stadium) to be able to admire the pocket monsters of Nintendo in 3D and this decreed the success of the game in question.

The essence of this new videogame interaction remains unchanged: photograph them all. In this our themed guide New Pokémon Snap we will show you in a simple and clear way how to win all the stars available by photographing the cute and funny Hoothoot. At the time of the second generation of Pokémon, the creature in question was used by Game Freak to “introduce” the mechanics of the day-night cycle in an emblematic way since this was one of the few Pokémon that could only be encountered after sunset. As for New Pokémon Snap, we warn you right now that to capture Hoothoot it will not be necessary to do anything too complex, but there are some points to take into consideration to photograph the bird in the “correct” way.

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

Many Pokémon from previous generations make their return to New Pokémon Snap, the famous “owl” Hoothoot is one of them and we will show you shortly how to immortalize it to get all the stars available for evaluation. Having become quite famous, at the time of the second generation of Pokémon thanks to the anime, Hoothoot certainly has a certain following among the fans and we are pleased to see him make his way also in this new videogame entry. Fortunately, as we mentioned, capturing all four different behaviors of this flying Pokémon is quite easy, so read on below to save some time and I’ll do it on your own as soon as possible.

  • 1 Stella: take a picture of Hoothoot the first time you meet one, just scan the inside of a tree trunk to find the aforementioned Pokémon.
  • 2 stars: When you encounter a Hoothoot on top of a wooden log, use the scanner to make it “shake”. Sprint as soon as the Pokémon begins to move.
  • 3 stars: Throw a fluffy apple on Hoothoot, to make him lose his balance and reveal both legs which are usually overlapping. Take a snapshot at that exact moment, this will also complete one of your secondary requests, if available.
  • 4 stars: The only requirement to get 4 stars is to have the Melody tool unlocked. When you spot a Hoothoot atop the branches of a tree, start playing the instrument and the Pokémon will start moving to the beat of the music. Take a picture of this “magical” moment and you will get the 4-star rating you need. That’s all!
