Jack’s Halloween Hunt Gardening Event Guide

The Jack’s Halloween Hunt gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android! It runs from September 28th until October 9th. Learn how to grow event Lollipoppy flowers, catch bat creatures, and get the full Halloween furniture set in our complete guide!

Plant and Grow Lollipoppies to Catch Bats

[the_ad id=”8789″]

When you first login to Pocket Camp during this event, Jack will speak with you giving some of your very first Lollipoppy seeds for free. With your new seeds, tap on empty dirt plots in your garden to plant and water them. When the timer on a plant ends, the Lollipoppy will bloom!

When lollipoppies bloom during Jack’s Halloween Hunt, there’s a random chance of a Bat 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 lollipoppy flower and bat creature matches are as follows:

  • Apple Lollipoppies spawn white winged Spooky Bats
  • Peach Lollipoppies spawn green winged Eerie Bats
  • Plum Lollipoppies spawn both teal/blue winged Scary Bats and orange/purple winged Haunting Bats

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

Don’t Forget to Share Your Bats

The essential key to successfully completing a gardening event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is making full use of the sharing features! Due to recent changes made to spawn and catch rates, it’s even more important than before.

Whenever you have Bats 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 lollipoppies they have sitting there. After you share, you’ll receive lollipoppy seeds to help you grow more.

It’s important to know 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, you’ll make great progress!

Trade in Flowers for Potted Lollipoppies, Seeds, and Exclusive Item

When you’ve harvested lots of lollipoppies 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 furniture, you can exchange your flowers in for potted versions of each plant for 20 matching lollipoppies each.

In addition to the Trick-Or-Treat Dress which is available through trading if you want duplicates of the item, this event has an extra Jack-In-The-Box item which is exclusively available through trading 20 Plum Lollipoppies to the Gyroid. You will not get it from completing tasks — don’t miss out!

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 Lollipoppies into higher quality Lollipoppy seeds!

Complete Your Halloween with Matching Spooky Terrain and Muffy’s Cookie

Want to completely deck your campsite out in Halloween vibes this season? Be sure to check out the terrain menu for a new complete set of Spooky Terrain pieces! There’s a sky, multiple background pieces, grass, deck, and even fencing. Be warned though — the prices are sure to give you a fright too at a total cost of 1100 Leaf Tickets for everything. Holy moly!!

In addition to the spooky terrain options, a new cookie called Muffy’s Creepy Cookie is set to release on October 1st and contains a variety of witch-themed items that go well with the items in Jack’s Halloween Hunt.
