First off, to even attempt to find Suicune you need to unlock the Shiver Snowfield path on both daytime and nighttime since you'll need both.

During the day, right at the start of the level, take a picture of the Alolan Sandslash on your left, keep an eye out as it'll reappear down the line, take his picture one more time, the Pokémon will dig a tunnel through a snow wall.

At this point just finish the course and go back during nighttime.

Now, while in the night version of the level, walk through the snow wall. Here you'll spot a Crabominable, toss him an Illumina Ball, it'll hit a tree dropping snow on a sleeping Abomasnow, its tantrum will make a Froslass appear, take a picture and it'll lead you to a new secret passage.

On the new path, you'll go through a lake, once you spot a Jynx riding an Avalugg pass the initial portion of this new section, throw balls and after a few seconds, Suicune should gallop its way around you.
