Pascal's Items for Trade

Seren Morgan-Roberts


This page offers information on the red otter, Pascal, who was introduced to the game during the first wave of the Summer 2020 updates.

Finding your First Scallop

When you find a scallop for the first time, Pascal the Otter will spring up behind you. He’ll ask for the scallop and in exchange give you a DIY recipe that requires Pearls. Pearls are rare but can be found on the ocean floor. Pascal will also exchange pearls for scallops.

Pascal will appear when there are scallops around.

Scallop Trading

When you find a scallop, there’s a chance that Pascal will pop up behind you. He will only come once per day, though. He will sometimes only give you a pearl for the scallop, but often times he will give you a DIY recipe or item of clothing. Here is a list of the items and DIYs that Pascal will trade a scallop for:

Mermaid DIY Set

This set consists of 14 items, each of the items will require some pearls and lots of shells to make it.

The mermaid set is a popular themed set amongst Animal Crossing players.

Mermaid Outfits

Pascal can also gift you the following clothing items in exchange for a scallop:

  • Mermaid Fishy Dress: in Pink or Blue

  • Mermaid Princess Dress: in Pink or Blue

  • Mermaid Shoes: in Pink or Blue

  • Mermaid Tiara

Pascal will sometimes trade Mermaid dresses for scallops.
