Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the land of the Hisui region, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every species of Pokémon from the Hisui region to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.
The Galaxy Team will task the player to do missions in the game. Additionally, various people will also ask for help from the player in requests. One of these requests is Request 25, titled ‘The Pokemon in the Woodland Photos.’ This guide will teach you to complete the ‘The Pokemon in the Woodland Photo’ request.
The Pokemon in the Woodland Photo
To unlock this request, the player must first receive the “Arezu’s Predicament” mission (the eighth mission in the game), where the player must quell the Lady of the Ridge Liligant’s frenzy, and use the Photography Studio in Jubilife Village and take a photo at least once.
After doing the requirements mentioned above, you can now start this request! Go to the Photography Studio in the northwest of Jubilife Village (near the Item Storage and the Front Gate), and outside you will see the owner, an older man in green clothes named Dagero. Talk to him, and he will tell you people do not understand the appeal of taking pictures with Pokemon and are afraid of Pokemon to get over their reluctance. However, he accidentally took a picture of a cute and cuddly Pokemon. He thought if people saw Pokemon in a photo, people would want to take photos with them in his Photography Studio. So, Dagero will ask you to catch that Pokemon for him. After that conversation, the ‘The Pokemon in the Woodland Photo’ request has started!
The Pokemon in Dagero’s photo is a Buneary! A Buneary can be found in The Heartwood and near Oreburrow Tunnel in the Obsidian Fieldlands and the Bonechill Wastes and near the Snowfall Hot Spring in the Alabaster Icelands of the day and every weather condition. Out of all of these, however, the easiest would be in The Heartwood in the Obsidian Fieldlands as you can fast travel to the Grandtree Arena and head just a little bit northwest to find some Buneary.
It is worth noting that Buneary is a nimble creature and will run fast once they see you. So, make sure to crouch and hide in the tall grass and use food to bait and distract them so you can easily catch them by throwing a Pokeball, especially from behind.
After catching a Buneary, head back to Jubilife Village and go inside the Photography Studio. Talk to Dagero, select ‘About that request you had..’ on the prompt, select ‘I think I’ve got the Pokemon you wanted,’ and select the Buneary you just caught. Dagero will then realize that the Buneary is even fluffier and lovelier than he imagined and will immediately take a picture of it. After that, the ‘The Pokemon in the Woodland Photo’ request is completed, and there will be new options added to the Photography Studio!
Now that you have completed this request, you can now try to complete other requests, complete missions, or complete Arceus’ task for you, which is to catch ‘em all!
