While some Legendary and Mythical Pokémon in New Pokémon Snap can be rather hard to find, the Jewel Pokémon Diancie is one that is fairly straightforward. Thankfully, the higher-level photos are just as easy. If you’re having trouble finding Diancie in New Pokémon Snap, our handy guide will not only lead you to it, but will also tell you how to get that valuable 4-star photo!
To find Diancie, head to Cave Level 3 and proceed down the right-hand alternate path when given the choice. This should take you past the stalactites and sleeping Crobat. Once in the open chamber, look down and to the right, near the giant crystals. You should see a couple Carbink and a Mawile. Hit all three of them with Illumina Orbs and Diancie will make an appearance for a 1-star photo. Hit Diancie with an Illumina Orb to make it do some sort of ritual, during which you can take higher-tier pictures of the Pokémon. Diancie’s 4-star photo opportunity occurs just as it finishes this animation (as shown via the energy orb bursting), so if you want to make sure you hit it, I recommend using Burst Mode to capture the entire spectacle.
