The Poké Ball Scavenger Hunt, a crossover event with Pokémon, has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android! It runs from October 12th until October 22nd, 2018. Learn how to find Poké Balls and craft cute Eeeve furniture or clothing in our complete guide!
How to Find and Collect Poké Balls
For this event, you’ll need to hunt down and collect special Poké Balls, but don’t worry — it’s super easy! They’re just like Gyroidites in past scavenger hunts and appear in-game across the map during the event, even in the Marketplace and OK Motors. Sometimes you’ll see them in plain sight on the ground and other times they are found cleverly hidden behind obstructions or inside trees. Regardless of where it is, just tap the Poké Ball when you see one somewhere to have your character pick it up!
Poké Balls appear at a rate of about one per ten minutes in a random location, with a batch of five about once per hour in the next location you visit. Importantly, there’s a hard limit of ten Poké Balls that can be present on the map at once.
To ensure you grab as many as possible and don’t miss out on a significant amount, be sure to keep checking back on the game every couple hours to maximize your findings. Logging in once or twice per day to collect many at a time won’t yield nearly as many as checking frequently throughout the day, due to the cap of ten at a time!
There’s other ways to collect Poké Balls besides just hunting in the map locations though. They can be found in Shovelstrike Quarry at select random times during the event. Seek help from five friends to enter for free each day, or pay up 20 Leaf Tickets to get in. Villagers at your campsite can give them as a gift too sometimes when you speak to them.
