Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp – Rover’s Garden Safari: What is it?

As teased in the past few days, the latest event for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp went live today, and as expected, it’s all about Rover. It’s called Rover’s Garden Safari, and it runs until January 22nd (with the event divided in two parts, the second one beginning on January 17th).

Here’s what the event is all about: Rover has come to your campsite in search of hard-to-find butterflies, that flutter even during Winter. To help him catch them, you need to grow flowers that can attract butterflies. Of course, you will be rewarded for doing so: completing the tasks set by Rover, you can earn some special pieces of furniture (that are sent directly to your inventory, no need to order them or anything).

There will be a second set of tasks for the second part of the event, but you don’t need to worry about the first one: you can still complete them during the second part… no need to rush to complete them all before the second part starts.

Don’t forget to check the set of Timed Goals running that went live alongside the events: you will find details about them on this page!

Here’s the rare creatures available during the event:

  • diamond butterfly
  • topaz butterfly
  • winter butterfly (available from January 17th, from white dahlias)
  • gold winter butterfly (available from January 17th, from white dahlias)

Here’s the seasonal plants available during the Garden Safari:

  • blue dahlias (cannot be cross-pollinated)
  • red dahlias (cannot be cross-pollinated)
  • white dahlias (available from January 17th) (cannot be cross-pollinated)

NB: these plants can only be exchanged for items during the event! Once it’s over, the following will be converted to items if they’re in your inventory:

  • diamond butterfly
  • topaz butterfly
  • winter butterfly
  • gold winter butterfly
  • blue dahlias
  • red dahlias
  • white dahlias

If they’re not in your inventory, the following will simply disappear:

  • diamond butterfly
  • topaz butterfly
  • winter butterfly
  • gold winter butterfly

And here’s some additional notes about the event:

  • if you get more seasonal seeds, seasonal plants, or seasonal creatures than allowed by your inventory limit, any seed, plant or creature in excess will be lost;
  • you can plant seasonal seeds even after the event has ended, but the resulting plants will not attract any rare creatures.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp – Rover’s Garden Safari: How to play

  • Step 1: collect seeds.

During this event, you can get different types of seeds:

  1. Blue Dahlia seeds: you can order those from Lloid in the garden, using Leaf Tickets. You cannot order them once the event is over;
  2. Red Dahlia seeds: you can sometime get these by fulfilling animal requests. You cannot get them once the event is over;
  3. White Dahlia seeds: you can sometime get these by fulfilling animal requests. You cannot get them once the event is over;
  • Step 2: grow plants.

Once you have seeds, you need to plant them. When the plants bloom, rare creatures will be drawn to them. The type of creature you get depends on the type of seeds you planted:

  1. Blue Dahlias: diamond butterfly
  2. Red Dahlias: topaz butterfly
  • Step 3: collect rare creatures.

Use your bug net to catch the rare creatures attracted by your plants. The more you catch, the more rewards (including limited-time items) you will be able to get from Rover!

  • Step 4: help your friends.

Once you’ve caught them, you can share rare creatures with other players, in their gardens. Doing so will sometime reward you with seeds… sharing is caring, as they say!

If you don’t want to catch rare creatures by yourself, you can use Leaf Tickets and pay Lloid so that he does it for you. He never misses, and you can rely on him when you want to be certain of a catch.
