How To Catch Fast Sea Creatures

Can't Catch Up To Fast Creatures


When diving underwater, it will be impossible for you to catch up to the fastest creatures. Don't press the A button at all and approach them from above!

The Cornering Method

One strategy you could employ with these fish is to simply drive them to the edge of the map and corner them. Once they have no way out, you'll be able to catch them with no problem. The only downside to this method is that it might take some time depending on your location.


StepWhat To Do
1Find a sea creature
2Approach it from behind and chase it into the rope
3When it stops or turns around, run into it to catch it!

The Sneaking Method

By simply not pressing the A button and swimming up slowly to your target, you can get close enough to catch it. You might fail when trying this against the fastest critters, but if you're persistent you should get it.


StepWhat To Do
1Find a sea creature
2Approach it slowly without pressing the A button until you're directly above its bubbles
3Dive with the Y button and catch it
