Isabelle’s Garden Gathering Event Guide: How to Get Pinwheetles

The Isabelle’s Garden Gathering gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android, running from July 31st to August 9th. Learn how to grow event Morning Glory flowers, catch Pinwheetle creatures, and get the full Summer Festival set in our complete guide!

Plant and Grow Morning Glories to Catch Pinwheetles

When you first approach your garden, Isabelle will speak with you the first time you approach your garden, sharing some of your very first Morning Glory 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 Morning Glory will bloom!

When Morning Glories bloom during Isabelle’s Garden Gathering, there’s a random chance of a Pinwheetle 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 Morning Glory flower and Pinwheetle creature matches are as follows:

  • Blue Morning Glories spawn Green Pinwheetles
  • Violet Morning Glories spawn Red Pinwheetles
  • Part 2: Pink Morning Glories spawn Blue Pinwheetles and Golden Pinwheetles

As a special bonus, this gardening event has increased spawn and catch rates compared to previous events! While we don’t know the exact numbers, see the table below for the typical gardening event rates before the bonus rates:

Red Pinwheetle48%69%

Complete Tasks for Summer Festival Rewards

The main goal of this event is to catch rare Pinwheetle creatures in your garden! When you do so, your catches will count towards event tasks that reward items in the Garden Gathering set, with many items themed to the Summer Festival.

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 Pinwheetles

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 Pinwheetles 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 Morning Glories they have sitting there.

After you share creatures, you’ll receive Morning Glory 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

Isabelle’s Garden Gathering has plenty of Event Goals available to complete for extra rewards. You’ll get bells, flower fertilizer, and most importantly free 15 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 Morning Glories, Seeds, Flower Food, and Duplicates

When you’ve harvested lots of Morning Glories 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 Morning Glories each.

You can even get duplicates of select items from this gardening event if you really like them and want more! Here’s the duplicates you can trade your Pink Morning Glories in for:

  • Isabelle Mask: 30 Pink Morning Glories
  • Morning-Glory Lanterns: 40 Pink Morning Glories
  • Festival Lantern Canal: 50 Pink Morning Glories

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 Morning Glories into higher quality Morning Glory seeds if you don’t have enough!
