Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp – How to Meet and Invite New Villagers to Your Camp
Villagers are an important element in most Animal Crossing games. Not only are they a constant source of entertainment and adorable interactions, but they also bring life into your town and villages with their different and interesting personalities. From normal and peppy, to jock and snooty Villagers, among others, each of these characters can definitely help to add a defining touch to your environment.
In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Villagers gain a new element of importance since you will need to meet and befriend many of these characters in order to progress. Consequently, there are more intricacies when it comes to interacting with Villagers in Pocket Camp.
In this article, we’re going to explain everything you need to know when it comes to the Villagers in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. From meeting and inviting them over to your campsite, to completing requests and gaining friendship levels, let’s take a look at the Villagers in Animal Crossing.
The Perks of Meeting New Villagers
In any other Animal Crossing game, Villagers are pivotal parts of your town since they give tons of flair and personality through their interactions, clothing, and the way their homes are decorated. In Pocket Camp, however, they are much more important since meeting and befriending Villagers is the main way for you to level up in this game.
Every time you interact with a Villager, you will receive friendship experience, which will contribute towards increasing your friendship level with the said Villager. Moreover, for every friendship level you obtain with any Villager, you will receive player experience. Once you get enough player experience, your level will increase, opening up new crafting recipes, as well as new Villagers for you to meet.
Keep in mind that, if you’re just starting in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, you will only have access to a select few Villagers with which to interact. As you increase your level, you will find more of these characters in your contacts catalog, which you can summon at any time using a Calling Card, or find them in any of the recreational zones in the map. These Villagers rotate every few hours so make sure you interact with each one before they leave.
Increasing Friendship Levels
Whenever you meet a new Villager in Animal Crossing, you will want to chat and interact with them as much as possible in order to increase their friendship level. By working on your friendship levels, you will receive many different perks, as mentioned above.
The main way to increase your friendship level with any Villager is by completing requests for them. Each Villager that you meet offers up to three requests every day, all of which grant plenty of friendship experience for completing them. You can then give a Villager a Request Ticket in order to refresh their request allowances, allowing you to continue grinding friendship levels. However, for the most part, you’ll be fine completing only the first three requests. Unless you REALLY like the Villager and want them to move to your campsite, we suggest saving up those tickets.
Once you increase your friendship level up to a certain point, you can invite a Villager over as a permanent resident of your campsite. This is great for many reasons: First off, if you like a certain Villager due to their looks or personality, having them in your camp means that you will always be able to interact with them and increase their friendship levels. Furthermore, by grinding these friendship levels, you will gain access to new features such as exclusive furniture and clothing, as well as the possibility of customizing their clothing.
However, in order to invite a Villager to your camp, you must first fulfill certain requirements, including increasing their friendship to a certain level. After this, you must also craft and place specific pieces of furniture at your campsite so that they can feel at home and move in. The furniture in question varies per Villager, and you can always check it in their information menu by clicking on their portrait in the catalog.
Once you’ve fulfilled all the requirements, you can simply talk with the character and ask them to move to your campsite. This is the main way through which you may obtain new Villagers in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
Farming Crafting Materials
The problem with getting Animal Crossing Villagers to move into your campsite is that they ask for specific pieces of furniture. Considering that, as we mentioned in our review of this game, there are hundreds of different Villagers in this game, there’s a good chance that you won’t have every single piece of furniture on hand to get someone to move, and you’ll have to craft it in order to do so. However, these crafts require lots of materials that you may or may not have in storage.
Farming materials is a necessity in Pocket Camp, especially if you like crafting lots and lots of furniture and clothing. The main method through which you can receive these items is by completing Villager requests. However, the specific type of material you will receive varies depending on the type of Villager you’re interacting with.
Here are the types of materials you can farm from specific Villagers:
- Cotton: From Pig, Hippo, Mice, Goat, and Lion Villagers.
- Wood: From Squirrel, Frog, Chicken, Cat, and Hamster Villagers.
- Steel: From Anteater, Kangaroo, Deer, Dog, Gorilla, Cub, Wolf, Horse, Ostrich, Monkey, and Duck Villagers.
- Preserves: From Cow, Tiger, Bird, and Bull Villagers.
- Paper: From Koala, Eagle, Octopus, Rhino, Sheep, and Bear Villagers.
While you should always interact with each and every Villager that you find along your travels, you can focus on certain types over others depending on the type of materials you’re looking for. Keep in mind that you can always summon specific Villagers to any zones by using a Calling Card item. The Villagers summoned with this method will stick around the area for 3 hours before moving away.
Meeting and befriending Animal Crossing Villagers is the best way to progress in Pocket Camp. In fact, it’s the only way to increase your player level and get access to all the features and recipes in the game. Make sure that you chat with all the different Villagers that you find along the road.
