    Well idk if it was just me, but does steelix get easier if the course is leveled up or something? I actually managed to get all star photos of it (the 4 star one was sheer luck though, it's just his body not even the head so idk what it's even doing xD ). 2 star was easy to get while doing the steelix request. 3 star took a bunch of screwing around but eventually got it.
    Found 2 more alternative routes in the cave on top of the 1 I already knew.... been hunting all day, but managed to clear all requests and the photodex for this area and thus this island =D

    Uploaded a bunch of new pics to my snap profile. Was trying to get the professor to pick 2 new shots, but after immediately picking the first from the first course I did after removing the old ones, he's been refusing to pick a 2nd... I got no idea what the requirements for the proffessor picks are but w/e.

    Oh right, i managed to find Jolteon, not in a place I was expecting it but hey at least I found it =p

    Well, from my understanding he said that he has cloned them from the original one(s) he has. Unlike Machamps.com, this guy didn't seem to have gotten into any big controversy regarding his giveaways. There is also a good video on YT that distunguished between legal, legit, hacked and illegal. Iirc: Legal Pkmn can be legit (obtained through normal means, e.g. catching it by yourself) or hacked (which still can have stats and stuff that is possible to have in-game), but hacked Pkmn can also be illegal (has stuff that is impossible to have in-game).

    I see. Oh well, at least you have one, which is good :)

    Well, there's no way he has that many Megearna and Melmetal legit. they are at the very least clones, if not blatant hacks imo
    To me hacked mythicals have no value tbh

    Regardless, I already have a Magearna so don't really need another tbh. Transfered my own one form Ultra Sun. I've been meaning to check Ultra moon to see if I can still claim on there since it relies on QR stuff and I think that might still work, but I have to complete the game first and don't feel like it xD

    I skipped the first paragraph - for some reason I still want to try to find this by myself xD

    Yes, both are useful. I guess I could only bait out an electric attack from the opponent by having a water pokemon and then switching in to Emolga. Emolga is really frail anyway, so Static may be better since it will get K.O.ed easily. Oh well, for now I'll leave Static and keep the Ability Patches for other mons, just in case :)

    True xD That's why they said "soft deadline" I guess. But hey, at least they tried. It's nice to see entries, even tho there are only a few :D Also I noticed that I can't see your pictures on mobile devices - only on my laptop. Btw, I just submitted mine and coincidentally, my choice for "funniest" has the same pokemon in it as in your submission xD

    Btw, today I managed to get a few of these:

    I could give you one holding an Ability Patch if you're interested. You never know when you need one of those for breeding :P

    2 alternative areas actually. the first one I already found a while ago, the second one not till a couple days ago and I only found it due to a request =3

    Imo both Motor Drive & Static are situational. Static requires physical contact and only has a 30% chance, whereas Motor drive requires the opponent to use an electric attack (which they usually don't if your mon is electric).
    Edit: actually nvm, I forgot motor drive makes electric attack completely useless against your mon. Motor Drive would be better imo.

    That Photo Contest seems pretty dead to me tbh, not alot of people replying to it xD

    A quick breed is always a good breed =3

    There is an alternative area in the Ice Area? Didn't know about that, even I went through dozens of times xD My guess would be that the other path is behind the Snoms on the right side right after you enter the cave. Seems like every Day/Night route has an alternative path, which is good.

    Yeah, for some shots you really have to go slow, for others you can just fast foward until you reach the mon itself.

    Come to think of it, the soft deadline for the Lental Photo Contest is tomorrow...I should start choosing & uploading my submissions xD

    Yesterday RNG was nice to me in Sw/Sh. Went to breed three Pkmn, two of them were yours (Emolga & Espurr) and got them, with right natures and very good IVs within two hours. The Emolga I choose didn't have Motor Drive but Static, which may be better. I'll have to see once I test it out someday.

    Well managed to finish off the photodex and requests for the ice area. Couldn't for the life of me get a 3 or 4 star photo where glaceon is actually freaking looking my way T^T
    But I got annoyed at having to do the entire freaking course every time (all those mons that force you to slow down...).
    Might retry at some point. the 4 star isn't bad, but it's looking sideways. The 3 star is pretty bad though, its looking completely away pretty much just a sideshot xD

    Sheesh man. Didn't do any snap for a couple days. Went back to it, found a second alternative route in the icy area. Spent hours there grinding a legendary I found and other new mons I hadn't registered at all yet that I found in that area. Had to do both day & night courses to get everything.

    And I completely finished requests for these courses twice... only for new ones to be added again xD
    Due to the new area being played through no doubt.

    Still no 3 & 4 star glaceon shots though I haven't exactly focused on it yet.

    Aaah, lil' thicc chicc :D It's really interesting, because everyone seems to miss different things - atleast that's what I noticed when I saw two different playthroughs on the 1st stage - that's how I found out about Emolga xD

    There was a hoenn starter in the foreground for me. Actually starting to wonder if I did find it but completely forgot about it xD

    Besides eevee & salandit there's also combee, and all the fossil mons =p
    yeah, uh... those took a while xD

    Saw the A Finicky Flame Screenshot - there was a Helioptile in the background. Was this the one that you found out about?

    I think not. Only one that comes to my mind in the Beach Night Stage is Manaphy. Maybe Phione is in too somewhere?

    Sounds familiar xD

    True. I noticed too that certain pkmn only behave/interact with eachother at a certain level only.

    Oh okay. I think I found like 20 of them in the first level (Floria), including the legendary. Seems like I'm still missing one or two.

    The Squitle/Blastoise thing sounds specific lol. Wonder how long it'll take me to find that out.

    Oh yeah, today at like 12 AM I went through the female Salandit breeding hell. Got one after 1 hour, had only 4 out of 6 perfect IVs, (wanted to have 5) but then I was thinking and came to the conclusion that I have better things to do with my life, so I just deciced to take it anyway xD Really, now I felt the tip of the iceberg of you breeding a HA female Eevee...Eevee, a 12% chance only. Which also has two normal abilities besides HA, just to make things worse.

    omg... yes. I found squirtle's 4 star at last. Which led to me finding out how to get the blastoise out of the whirlpool =D

    Completely done now with this island =o
    Guess I'll do the ice island next.... it's about time I get better pics of glaceon =D

    Yeah it was. Did you find the legendary I mentioned? If not, that's probably what you're missing on this island.

    I'm actually wondering if you're supposed to hit that splashing magikarp with an illumina orb. I tried but couldn't hit the dang thing for the life of me.

    Yea I spent like 3 hours in the underwater area, because I wanted to 'just do a couple requests here and leave'.
    Yeah, uh, no. *3 hours later*

    What is tricky is the course levels though. I couldn't for the life of me get chinchou's 3 & 4 star photo's.
    Leveled the course down to lvl 2, and got the 3 & 4 star in 2 consecutive runs immediately xD
    Just something to keep in mind if you really can't get a certain star photo for a specific mon.

    Also those 'all mons on this island found ' stickers are put on the front of your photobook by the game. I don't think I've seen them in the photo editor.
    More of a progress thing I guess, rather than something you can actually use.

    Then it has to be
    Spoiler:
    Manaphy, right? :P Discovered one too then I discovered Vaporeon


    Cool, there are even those? And I ain't got one :O
    Gonna step up my game I guess lol

    Can confirm. When I saw Magikarp jumping out of it, I noticed that it jumped higher after each thrown fruit. I thought that maybe something will happen if it reaches its highest point...if there is even one lol. Nope, nothing.

    What baffles me is (dunno if that's the same with you). Here I am, thinking "I'll just do one or a few rides on this course, nothing more". Then I end up playing a few hours the same course xD

    Think I know what other gen 4 mythical you mean now.... randomly found it earlier today. If it's in 1 of the water areas.
    Was my last mon missing in this island too. Game gave me a 3rd 'Every mon on this island found' sticker =D
    3 mythicals found =3

    Ignored the whirlpool stuff and spent most of my free time in underwater completing mons and requests.
    Afterwards went to reef evening and and did some stuff there too. And then did a bunch of back n forth between reef day and night for various things.

    Lots of progress. 5 challenges remain for this island. 5 mons are incomplete (1 of which is still missing 3 photos because I haven't bothered going back for it yet xD).

    Screwed around with the whirlpool after all that.
    Starting to wonder how the whirlpool works. fluffruit, illumina orbs and melody directed at it have zero effect (other than a silly magikarps splashing out of it). The illumina plants do something else unrelated to the whirlpool apparently.
    Which only leaves some sort of mons interaction I think, or a specific combo of all the above I haven't found yet.

    Some other day, I guess.
