New Pokémon Snap Mightywide River guide

The Mightywide River is one of the three new maps introduced in New Pokémon Snap. This area welcomes seven new Pokémon to the game, including the long-awaited Gyarados. Here is a complete guide to Mightywide River.

Mightywide River alternate path

To access the alternate path of Mightywide River, you first need to take a trip there at night. Along the way, you will see a Feraligatr sleeping on a branch. A few meters later, on your right, several Beautifly are hanging on a wall of plants. Scan this zone to reveal an alternate path leading to a cave behind the plants. The Mightywide River alternate path features various Pokémon, such as Drilbur, Cleffa, and Swampert.

Once you unlock the Mightywide River alternate path on the night course, you can access it during the day. A word of caution: to access the day version of the alternate path, you need to unlock Research Level 3. Before that, you will not be able to see the branching path.
