New Pokémon Snap

In New Pokémon Snap, you have to take lots of photos of a lot of different Pokémon to help Professor Mirror uncover the mystery of the Lental Region and complete the Photodex. Not all photos you take, however, are related to your main mission, as you can choose to engage with the LenTalk requests to snap more unique photos that will allow you to obtain a variety of different rewards. There are different requests for all courses in the game, so they are just perfect if you haven’t had enough of the New Pokémon Snap experience.

Here are all of the requests available in the Sands (Day) course, the Research Level required to make them become available and how to complete them.
