Capture a majestic Wailord breaching the clear tropical waters, or photograph a mischievous Aipom swinging from branch to branch. Have your camera at the ready for great snap opportunities before the Pokémon are gone in a flash.

Travel everywhere with your trusty NEO-ONE. No need to steer – the pod will move on its own, allowing you to focus on getting the perfect shot! Traverse lush ecosystems in the midday sun or during starry nights to observe unique Pokémon behaviours and witness something out of the ordinary.

The Pokémon and plants of the Lental region have some unique properties. In fact, some of them possess a fantastical glow. Help Professor Mirror uncover the truth behind the Illumina phenomenon by exploring the islands of the archipelago and documenting the mysterious luminosity!
