To start Jungle Buddies, you need to play the Melody at a very specific point in the opening of the Founja Jungle (Day) course. What you need to look for is the large hill on the left side of the course as shown above. It should be next to a Slaking lying down.

Start playing the melody as soon as you begin to approach this hill and watch the crest of it.Keep playing the melody and you should see a Bounsweet fly over the hill and begin to follow you, as shown below.

Once the Bounsweet is following you, look ahead on the course until you see an Arbok hissing at the jungle. It’s scaring a Wooper hiding in the bushes. As you approach, hit the Arbok with a fluffruit to scare it away. At this point, Wooper will come out from hiding, stand on a rock and look around. If the Bounsweet is following you he should break into a smile and the two will begin to dance together. Take photos of both the Wooper and the Bounsweet here for a 4-Star encounter.
