If you’re actively working your way through all of the requests in New Pokemon Snap, you’re bound to come across one called One-Hand Freeze. Like all of the requests, the instructions are left somewhat vague, leaving you to puzzle out the answer.

To help you save time, we’ve put together a quick guide explaining what you need to do to complete the One-Hand Freeze request in New Pokemon Snap! 

New Pokemon Snap | How to Complete One-Hand Freeze

To complete the “One-Hand Freeze” request in New Pokemon Snap, you’ll need to jump into the Florio Nature Park (Day) course at Research Lv. 3. Once you’re playing through the Florio Nature Park (Day) course, your next task is to take a photo of Grookey doing a handstand… which is easier said than done.

It doesn’t appear as though there’s any way to really influence this, so the best course of action is to keep an eye on Grookey whenever you see them pop up. You’ll see them at the start of the course with Pichu, if you press R to play Music it’ll make Grookey happy and they’ll run over and stand on top of the sign for a 4-star photo opportunity.

The best spot to catch Grookey doing a handstand appears to be towards the end of the course in the meadow of flowers. Right when you enter this area, zoom in and keep an eye on Grookey to see if it does a handstand. When we caught our photo of Grookey doing a handstand (seen below), we had to turn all the way around and keep our camera zoomed in on Grookey.

In the event you miss the photo of Grookey doing a handstand, you can always retry the course and press RT to speed up the NEO-ONE to reach the final meadow area in the event Grookey doesn’t do a handstand for you at the beginning of the course. 

Once you have a photo of Grookey doing a handstand, show it to Professor Mirror to complete the One-Hand Freeze request in New Pokemon Snap. As a reward for completing this request, you'll receive the profile icon, Professor Mirror's Goggles.

Below, we’ve recapped all of the steps needed to complete the One-Hand Freeze request in New Pokemon Snap.

 

  • Run through the Florio Nature Park (Day) course at Research Lv. 3.
  • Keep a close eye on Grookey to see if it does a handstand, and if it does, take a photo of Grookey in handstand position.
