New Pokemon Snap: How to Take a 4 Star Picture of Bidoof

What a nice building!

New Pokemon Snap allows players to become Pokemon photographers in the Lental region of the Pokemon universe. As players complete research expeditions, Professor Mirror will grade the quality of their photographs, giving each picture a score and a star rating from one to four stars.

Four-star pictures are more difficult to collect than one- or two-star photos, but we’re here to help you fill your Pokemon Photodex with four-star photos!

Here’s how to take a four-star picture of Bidoof! (Keep in mind, there may be multiple ways to take a four-star picture of Bidoof, but we’ve had this method work in our own game, and it isn’t difficult to achieve!)

Choose Research Level 2 of the Park (Night) level.

Before you get to the flower field at the end of the level, you’ll pass a large body of water on your right. In the water, you’ll see a dam of twigs and logs that Bidoof have built. A Bidoof will be sleeping inside the dam with its body sticking out of the dam.

Toss a Fluffruit at the Bidoof to wake it up. This will cause the Bidoof to scurry inside the dam and poke its head out of the top of the structure. Hurry and take a picture of Bidoof in this position and it should be a four-star photo!

As you can see in the screenshot below, you don’t have to be incredibly accurate with your timing. Bidoof is barely visible near the top of the dam in this picture, but it still counts as a four-star photograph. (If you look at photographs “7” and “8” in the screenshot below, you’ll see two better versions of this picture that also count as a four-star photograph).

And there you have it! Once you take this four-star photo of Bidoof, you’ll be one step closer to completing your entire Pokemon Photodex. Have fun!

It will likely take you a long time to take a four-star picture of every Pokemon in New Pokemon Snap. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Pokemon Snap (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
