In New Pokémon Snap, there are alternate routes behind the waterfall in Founja Jungle. Running a scan in Founja Jungle near the waterfall will tell you that there’s a secret route, but Rita say that the nearby sleeping Liepard is in the way.

In this New Pokémon Snap guide, we’ll explain how to move the Founja Jungle Liepard, allowing you access to the waterfall route in Founja Jungle.

Neither of the routes below open permanently, and you’ll have to move the Liepard every time you play the level.

Accessing the Founja Jungle waterfall during the day

During the day in Founja Jungle, you can move the Liepard by firing Illumina Orbs at it until it jumps off the rock. You’ll need to throw Illumina Orbs before it gets comfortable and settles down on the rock, so you should start throwing them at the Liepard as soon as it’s in your field of vision.

Once it’s gone, you can scan and take the path behind the waterfall.

Accessing the Founja Jungle waterfall at night

To move the Liepard at night in Founja Jungle, move the Pikipek that are also sitting with it. As soon as the Pokémon are within your field of vision, play music. This will make the Pikipek wake up and fly off.

Next, hit the Liepard with Fluffruit to make it get up and leave. A Morelull will remain on the rock, but you don’t need to do anything to it to access the path.

After chasing off the Liepard, you’ll be able to scan and access the waterfall.
