A crystabloom (Japanese: クリスタフラワー Crysta Flower) is a type of flower native to the Lental region that is capable of glowing as a result of the Illumina phenomenon. The logo for the Laboratory of Ecology and Natural Sciences (L.E.N.S) research institute was designed after the crystabloom.

The flowers differ in appearance and glow different colors depending on which island they are growing on.

In New Pokémon Snap, only a crystabloom that is in the Illumina state is eligible for evaluation by Professor Mirror. Crystablooms are stored in a separate section of the Photodex and are not awarded a score.

Crystablooms in the Illumina state will affect Pokémon within a certain radius, or those that interact with the flowers, causing them to temporarily enter the Illumina state as well. Certain crystablooms on select courses will be in the Illumina state by default.

After photographing a crystabloom undergoing the Illumina phenomenon, Professor Mirror will give the player Illumina orbs, which can be thrown at Pokémon and crystablooms to temporarily put them into the Illumina state, which can result in special interactions with the environment or nearby Pokémon.
