Use the following technique to get an easier photograph of Mew. Once in the Rainbow level, pop Mew's energy shield by throwing Pester Balls at it.

Another technique is to hit Mew with a Pester Ball while it is chasing the energy shield. It will start spinning in place for a few seconds before disappearing. To keep it from disappearing, keep throwing Pester Balls at it. Do this through the whole level to keep Mew in front of you the entire time.

After the second time Mew flies at you in its energy shield, turn your camera to the left and up slightly. When Mew flies by it immediately does flips. Take a close-up of it in the classic curl position while its whole body is towards you, with the light behind it. This results in a photograph worth over 8000 points.

On the Beach level, after passing Pikachu, turn around and take a photograph of the rock with seaweed that resembles a crab.


In the Tunnel, wait until Zapdos has hatched and turns on the power. Then when you pass the Electabuzzes and Pikachu, look to your right to see Pinsir's shadow on the wall.


In the Volcano level, throw a Pester Ball into the small volcano to the left of the first Rapidash that appears. Then, smoke in the shape of Koffing will appear.


In the River level, play the Poké Flute in front of the sleeping Vileplume. Then the smoke will disappear and a tree in the shape of Cubone will appear.
