How to Unlock all the locations in New Pokemon Snap

To unlock new areas in New Pokemon Snap, you will want to achieve Research Level 2 in each location and snap a photo of any strange objects like Crystablooms and Ruins. You earn Research Levels by gaining points for photos of new Pokemon. For example, if you miss a two-star photo of a Pokemon and find it in an area, you’ll get the corresponding amount of points added to that area’s research level.

It’s also essential to scan everything possible in each level for the first time and take pictures of any glowing and non-glowing Crystabloom. The Crystabloom are the flower-looking things that give certain Pokemon their mysterious powers seen in the Illumina Spots. These naturally glow at night, and the professor needs pictures of them. Ruins and alternate paths are also important to scan, as they help Professor Mirror with his research.
