After being submitted to Professor Mirror, the photos are sorted into six main categories, with each one contributing to the photo's grade and final grade. Players should ideally aim for a score of 4.000 or higher, as this is the minimum amount required to earn a diamond rating.

  • 0 - 2.999 - Bronze Classification
  • 3.000 - 3.499 - Silver Classification
  • 3.500 - 3.999 - Gold Classification
  • 4.000+ ‚Äď Diamond Rating

While players should try to satisfy all six criteria when lining up their shots, some categories such as size and pose are much easier to earn points than others and in some cases may even be enough to guarantee a diamond rating. even though the other four categories score poorly. Placement can also be worth another 1.000 points and is therefore definitely worth getting right.

  • pose ‚Äď Using items and upgrades on or near the Pokemon will often result in unique poses. Capturing them on camera can add up to 2.000 points to the total score.
  • Size ‚Äď The more space a Pok√©mon occupies on the board, the higher the score. Points can be deducted, however, if parts of the Pok√©mon do not appear in the photo.
  • Direction ‚Äď To get a high score in driving, players will need to capture the Pok√©mon while facing the camera. This is usually just a matter of time, though in some cases players may need to lure a Pokemon to a specific location with some Fluffruit or use Melody or Scan to make it spin.
  • Posicionamento ‚Äď The closer to the center of the shot a Pok√©mon is, the higher the placement score.
  • another pokemon ‚Äď Having another Pokemon other than the main target in a shot will grant additional points, although it's important to remember that the size and position of those Pokemon are also important.

When choosing which photos to deliver to Professor Mirror at the end of a race, players will likely notice that each photograph has a star rating of one, two, three, or four. 

Contrary to what some might think, this actually has nothing to do with the quality of the photograph and is determined by what the Pokémon is doing.

Different actions and poses are assigned different star ratings. For some Pok√©mon, finding a new one can be as simple as using Melody to make him dance or throw a Fluffruit at him to make him angry or sad. 

For others, however, players will need to take some pretty specific actions, especially when it comes to four-star photographs. Fortunately, the requests players receive from Todd and other characters often point them in the right direction.
