Dots are important in any video game, but for New Pokémon Snap they are linked to the all-important Research Level. It's not your character's XP level like in an RPG, but it's pretty similar. Instead of increasing your ability, it measures your effort and skill in taking pictures. It is a key element to unlocking new things in the game, so here is a brief overview of how to increase Wanted Level fast in New Pokémon Snap.
How to quickly increase the research level in the new Pokémon Snap
Your Research Level is the number of Expedition Points you have earned in that particular stage. Whether in its day, night, or Illumina form is also important here, so focus on each of them as necessary to raise the right level of research. All you need to do to earn Expedition Points is take pictures of Pokémon, but which ones and what they do matters a lot.
How to Earn Shipping Points Fast
You can get expedition points and increase your wanted level by scoring more points on the photos you take. However, only each star rank for each Pokémon species in the level can be counted. In short, this means that for each Pokémon in the level, you can get the score and expedition points for 4 photos in total (one for each star). We have guides for a group of Pokemon, so check them out to learn how to get the proper actions in your shots, and also check out this guide for how to get high scores in your shots.
Once you know how it all works, the rest is easy. Choose the level whose research level you want to increase, then try to get photos of new or old Pokemon in new poses and perform unique actions. You will earn expedition points for these photos. If they are new you will win them all, if you have a previous photo you will get all the extra points you have earned above the previous score. This will all add up to your total for the stage and eventually increase your Wanted Level once you reach the appropriate threshold. Which you'll want to do, as it's a key part of how you unlock new levels.
And here's how to quickly increase the research level in New Pokémon Snap, as well as an explanation of the expedition points.
