New Pokemon Snap: Every Pokemon In Sweltering Sands (Day)

After you make your way through Founja Jungle, you’ll simultaneously gain access to Sweltering Sands and Blushing Beach. It doesn’t matter which order you visit these new areas in, although it’s worth noting that you won’t get access to Blusing Beach (Night) until a fair bit later on in the story, whereas Sweltering Sands (Night) is unlockable as soon as you level up the daytime version.

Regardless of which order you travel to these locations in, Sweltering Sands is a mandatory level and is teeming with loads of great Pokemon. As a result, we’ve put together a comprehensive list of every single Pokemon you can encounter in Sweltering Sands during the day, as well as where to find them and what ranks they appear at.

If you’ve been following our New Pokemon Snap complete guide and walkthrough, you’ll likely already know that we don’t repeat ranks – if Skorupi is in Sweltering Sands (Day) rank one, we’re not going to bother listing it in rank two as well, because Skorupi appears in all three ranks. Instead, we’ll use the sections for ranks two and three to list the new ‘mons they introduce. With that established, let’s get cracking on our list of every single Pokemon in Sweltering Sands (Day).

List Of Pokemon In Sweltering Sands (Day) Rank 1

  • Skorupi – One of the first Pokemon you’ll see when you spawn in. Here’s a neat little hint: when you see the sandstorms, pay close attention to Skorupi, who will get swept up in it. If you take a photo of Skorupi flying around in the air, you’ll be awarded an easy four-star rating.
  • Heliolisk – Right at the beginning of the map, asleep on the sand dune opposite where you start.
  • Cacnea – On the sand dune opposite Heliolisk as you round the corner towards the sandstorms.
  • Mandibuzz – Flying around the sandstorms and perched on rocks to the right of the top of the hill you go over.
  • Hippowdon – Once you go past the sandstorms and over the hill, the first Hippowdon you see will be in the little oasis. There’s also one sleeping on his right and loads in the end section.
  • Torchic – Standing by the water next to the bathing Hippowdon.
  • Pinsir – In a crater to your right in the end section – hit it with a fluffruit to wake it up.
  • Trapinch – In the crater to your left, just before Pinsir’s one. Again, you have to clock it with a Pokemon apple to make it jump out of the sand.
  • Vivillon (Sandstorm Pattern) – Flying around the same end section. Obviously it’s the sandstorm pattern.

List Of Pokemon In Sweltering Sands (Day) Rank 2

  • Onix – Now that Hippowdon is awake you can choose to go left or right at the oasis. Going right brings you to a new end location, which is filled to the brim with gigantic rock snakes you can’t possibly miss.
  • Lycanroc – On the large rock next to the oasis on the way to Onix.
  • Tyranitar – Beneath Lycanroc.
  • Scorbunny – Behind a boulder on your right just after you spawn. Throw a rock over it to get Scorbunny’s attention. If you go left to Pinsir and Trapinch, it will show up again before the teleportation point.

List Of Pokemon In Sweltering Sands (Day) Rank 3

Silicobra – I am convinced this isn’t in previous ranks, although it seems like a pretty lousy rank three Pokemon. Near the spawn point or next to the oasis. Honestly. Silicobra’s spawns are so weird across both Sweltering Sands (Day) and (Night) that I stopped paying attention to it as soon as I’d added it to my Photodex.

And that’s it, every single Pokemon in Sweltering Sands (Day), including where to find them and which rank they start appearing on. Happy snapping!
