Who is he and how to find him? In this guide, we will tell you everything you need to know about Pascal in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Everything About Pascal in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Pascal is a character who has appeared in many previous Animal Crossing games. He will arrive when you have caught a scallop but he won’t appear every single time you have caught one. When he does come, he will ask to trade the scallop for a mermaid-themed DIY recipe or a pearl. You have a choice to not give it to him though, after which he will swim away. But it’s best to not miss an opportunity to get a DIY recipe from him.
Pascal is a very special NPC because he is also a philosopher. Every time you meet him, he will leave you with some words of wisdom that will make you think. He loves scallops a lot so when you give him one, he will happily swim away and eventually eat the scallop while swimming on his back. He lives quite the relaxed life! Pascal seems to be a very chilled out guy with his constant phrase of ‘maaan’ which makes him even cuter.
When Does Pascal Come?
From what is known till now, once Pascal gives you a DIY recipe, he won’t appear again in that day. Even if you collect more scallops, you will only see him once a day. This is similar to his appearance schedule in New Leaf.
There is no fixed time to meet him as well. It could be on the first scallop you caught in the day or the third. Just keep trying and he will show up. You can also follow him as he swims away and watch him eat the scallop you gave him. When you get near him, Pascal will turn his head to look at you but there are no other interactions possible at this point.
