New Pokémon Snap How to unlock Lugia
You must first have completed three things in order to unlock Lugia:
- Complete the glowing Cystabloom quest in the Lental Seafloor, which unlocks Pink Illumina Orbs.
- Get the Undersea level to Research Level 3.
- Clear the Clawitzer cave in the Undersea level.
- Near the start of the Undersea level, hit the Clawitzer with an Illumina Orb before it shoots at the rocks in the cave. This will make its blast strong enough to destroy the rocks in your path and reveal an opening. DO NOT speed up to get to the cave faster, as this will put you ahead of the Clawitzer.
Once you’ve done all of that, there are some specific steps you’ll need to follow to find Lugia.
