Pascal the otter is also part of this version of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. A philosophical and friendly  character. In this guide about Pascal, we'll explain how to meet him and the rewards he can give you.

Comment rencontrer Pascal et ses récompenses

How do you meet Pascal for the very first time?

First of all, you'll need a diving suit for scuba diving. You can get one at the Nook's Cranny. And there's no special way to do it: you'll have to rely on luck and patience before you pick up a scallop, which will make Pascal appear in front of you. 

How to exchange with Pascal?

Pascal appears once a day when the player picks up a scallop while scuba diving. Every day, the first time you pick up a scallop while diving, Pascal will appear in front of you and ask for the scallop in exchange for an item from the Mermaid Collection or a pearl. All you have to do is accept. After offering you a reward, he'll share a philosophical phrase with you before swimming off into the distance. 

  • It's important to note that Pascal won't appear if the player's inventory is full. In addition, you cannot choose the reward Pascal will give you. 

Here's a list of the rewards Pascal can offer you:

  • Pearl
  • Furniture from the Mermaid Collection 
  • Mermaid Flooring
  • Mermaid Wall
  • Mermaid Fence
  • Clothes from the Mermaid Collection (tiara, princess dress, ocean dress, shoes)

Additional Note

  • Scallops and pearls are available every day of the year, whatever the season. That means you can meet Pascal any day of the year.
  • As mentioned above, it is important to note that Pascal will not appear if the player's inventory is full.
  • You can't choose the reward Pascal will give you. 
  • Pascal will trade you a scallop for a reward once a day. Other scallops you pick up will not make Pascal appear. 
  • Pascal may give you a pearl in exchange for a scallop. You can also find pearls while scuba diving. Remember to save your pearls for later. They may come in handy when it's time to build objects or furniture from the Mermaid Collection, which often requires pearls.
