City Slickin’ with Kicks Gardening Event Guide: How to Get Cityflitters

The City Slickin’ with Kicks gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android, running from August 29th to September 7th. Learn how to grow event Marigold flowers, catch Cityflitter creatures, and get the full Old-Timey item set in our complete guide!

Plant and Grow Marigolds to Catch Cityflitters

When you first approach your garden, Isabelle will speak with you the first time you approach your garden, sharing some of your very first Marigold seeds for free. With your new seeds, just tap on empty dirt plots in your garden to plant and water them. When the timer on a plant ends, the Marigold will bloom!

When Marigolds bloom during City Slickin’ with Kicks, there’s a random chance of a Cityflitter creature spawning on top of the plant. Once a creature is ready and waiting, you’ll have to tap on it to attempt a catch. Then when attempting a catch, there’s another random chance of the catch failing. If you do successfully catch a creature, it will be added to your event task counts for special rewards!

The corresponding Marigold flower and Cityflitter creature matches are as follows:

  • Orange Marigolds spawn Blue Cityflitters
  • Yellow Marigolds spawn Purple Cityflitters
  • Part 2: White Marigolds spawn Yellow Cityflitters and Red Cityflitters

To get an idea of your chances of spawning and catching creatures, see the table below for a summary of the appearance and catch rates for this event:

Complete Tasks for Summer Festival Rewards

Part 2 Bonus Hard Tasks

This event features an additional set of particularly difficult Hard Tasks in Part 2, which are only unlocked after completing all other tasks above.

Don’t Forget to Share Your Cityflitters

The essential key to successfully completing a gardening event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is making full use of the sharing features! While it’s possible to play solo, we highly recommend sharing with friends for the best experience.

Whenever you have Cityflitters in your inventory after catching them, make sure to share them with friends! Just open your friends list, visit their garden, and place your creatures on any grown Marigolds they have sitting there.

After you share creatures, you’ll receive Marigold seeds to help you grow more. Plus, you’ll even get some Friend Powder too, which is helpful for other features in Pocket Camp!

It’s important to note that sharing creatures never negatively effects your personal task counts and rewards — there’s absolutely no reason not to share, you can only benefit! Always share as much as possible to help yourself get more seeds, while helping your friends progress in their own tasks. If you can share creatures back and forth with a buddy throughout the event, you’ll make great progress!

Event Goals for Leaf Tickets, Fertilizer, Bells

City Slickin’ with Kicks has plenty of Event Goals available to complete for extra rewards. You’ll get bells, flower fertilizer, and most importantly free 9 Leaf Tickets! Note that goals are available in sets, one at a time, with an overall bonus reward for completing each set.

Here’s what you need to do to complete all the Event Goals and earn every reward:

  • Plant seeds 450 times
  • Harvest flowers 500 times
  • Catch 250 rare creatures

Trade in Flowers for Potted Marigolds, Seeds, Flower Food

When you’ve harvested lots of Marigolds to make room for growing more, don’t forget to trade them in to Lloid the Gyroid to get the full benefits from your hard work during this event. In terms of unique furniture, you can exchange your flowers in for potted versions of each plant for 20 matching Marigolds each.

Flower Food is available too if you’re looking to speed up future growth of flowers. Most importantly though, you can trade up lower quality Marigolds into higher quality Marigold seeds if you don’t have enough!
