Get a pearl in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is quite a remarkable achievement. It is a rare crafting material that we can sell for 10,000 bells at the Nook Cranny or use it to craft mermaid furniture.
In the following article, we are going to see a guide to get or obtain a pearl as quickly as possible in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Remember that in this title for Nintendo Switch we can do many things, as long as it’s not starting from scratch. All good! We can plant turnips, get different fruits, catch fish, search for hardwood, etc.
Get a pearl in Anima Crossing New Horizons
After having the wetsuit equipped, we are going to have to go straight to the nearest river. Here we are going to press A to be able to swim on the banks of the river and we will have to look for bubbles. Once we find some bubbles, we will swim around them and press Y to capture the creature that is generating the bubbles.
Obviously, getting a pearl is somewhat complicated and, despite the difficulty, the reward is worth it. Here are some tips to make this process easier:
- Be careful with the shades: the shade of a pearl is one of the determining factors to get one. It is not an exact rule, no one knows exactly what kind of bubble a pearl can be; although many claim that pearl bubbles are smaller and often rise in a straight line from the bottom of the ocean.
- We should not get our hopes up: any Animal Crossing New Horizons player knows that getting pearls is not an easy thing. So, the first thing we will have to do is lower our expectations so as not to end up disappointed. The first thing to consider is that they are randomly generated. Since the coast is too wide, it is also not possible to say which place is the best to obtain pearls. So we must be patient.
- Pearls are not pearl oysters: many are wrong and we must correct them, the other pearl oysters are totally different and cannot be used to obtain pearls.
Trade in scallops for pearls
Another way to get pearls is to collect scallops and trade them with others. We must keep the scallops we find; Pascal will appear every so often for commercial. It is possible to exchange scallops and pearls. Since scallops are more common, this is the best option.
If you give Pascal a scallop, he will give you a mermaid furniture crafting recipe, a mermaid outfit, or a pearl. The most common rewards are pearls, then recipes, then clothing.
