With the new update in Animal Crossing New Horizons, players can now swim and dive underwater to catch new sea critters. The update also introduces Pascal as a new NPC in the game, and he’ll give you DIY recipes for a new mermaid furniture set. Here’s how to find Pascal in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Finding Pascal in Animal Crossing New Horizons
First things first, you need to get a wetsuit to start diving underwater. Pascal will only show up in the water, so you’ll need to go swimming to get him to spawn. Once you have the update downloaded and installed, head over to Nook’s Cranny and buy the wetsuit for 3,000 bells.
Equip it, then start swimming around to look for critters. If you manage to find a scallop, there’s a chance that Pascal could show up to take the scallop from you and offer a DIY recipe in return. It’s not guaranteed that he’ll appear with your first scallop catch, so just keep at it until he shows up.
At the time of writing, it’s also not clear how often Pascal will show up to your island. It’s likely that he might be a weekly rotation NPC, similar to Redd and Celeste. In addition to that, it’s likely that he’ll only show up if you’re swimming on your own island, and not on others’.
Here’s a list of all the DIY recipes we’ve gotten from him so far:
- Mermaid bed
- Mermaid chair
- Mermaid clock
- Mermaid dresser
- Mermaid floor
- Mermaid lamp
- Mermaid screen
- Mermaid sofa
- Mermaid shelf
- Mermaid table
- Mermaid vanity
- Mermaid wall
We’ll update this article with more information on Pascal’s appearance rate and the mermaid DIYs as we continue playing.
