Jirachi Location and Puzzle Solution in New Pokémon Snap

To find Jirachi in the New Pokémon Snap, players need to head to the late-game Ruins of Remembrance after having completed the game, as like all the other legendaries, Jirachi won’t show up until the game is completed. However, once you’re there, follow these steps to get your prized photo.

How to Find Jirachi

  • Head into the Ruins of Remembrance at Research Level 2 or 3 (it’ll be there either way).
  • Early on you’ll see several Eldegoss hanging around outside the entrance to the ruins.
  • Jirachi is actually floating above them, completely visible! However, it’ll appear again later on, closer to the player for better photos.
  • When you play further through the area and get to the cave with Crystablooms, look on the third Steelix statue to see it sleeping. An Illumina Orb will wake it up.

How to Get a Four Star Jirachi Photo

To get a four star Jirachi photo, players need to use Illumina Orbs to light up all six Crystabloom flowers that appear just before the end of the level. Once you do this and wake it up as above, Jirachi will start to fly around excitedly. Play the Melody, and it will generate a shower of stars and sparkles - that’s your four-star picture.
