How To Increase Research Level In Pokemon Snap?


Pokemon Snap increase research level
Players get expedition points based on the photos they take of pokemons. This might be an oversimplification as your photo gets rated on multiple criterias all contributing to your expedition points meter. Size of the Pokemons, the activity they are doing if they are looking at the camera or not are some aspects based on which you’re photo is rated. The size of the Pokemon has the highest weightage in the rating so make sure you capture all those giants. All pokemons have 4 poses so try and capture all of them as you get extra points for extra poses. Make sure the background is good and the pokemon isn’t going out of the frame.

If the pokemon looks at the camera it gives you extra points. Remember that initially, pokemons will run away but with increasing expedition points and research level, they will get familiar with you. While you might not meet all criterias in the beginning just keep clicking as grinding through the game is the best way to get expedition points. As you reach higher research levels Pokemons will get familiar with you and won’t run away and might also look at the camera. Clicking new pokemon fetches you most expedition points so make sure you click all of them.
