Have you ever gotten so mad at something happening in your town? Has it ever gotten to the point when you've just turned off your game, seething with anger? Have you ever decided to give your game a go when it's storming outside? You're just sitting there playing, enjoying the sunshine in your town when bam, the power goes out! Those moments are always such a big pain, especially knowing that Resetti is going to come and harass you when you start up your game again. Sometimes you turn on your game with big sigh of relief though. Instead of that angry mole shoving his head out of the ground, you found his good old brother Don slipping out of the ground!

Don Resetti

Okay, so you've been caught. You reset your game, intentionally or unintentionally, it doesn't matter. Instead of that angry mole screaming at the top of his lungs in your face for not saving your game before quitting though, you've encountered his cool-tempered brother Don. Don will show up after you've reset your game for the fifth time. After the first encounter with Don, one can also occasionally find him sipping a cup of joe at The Roost on Saturdays from Noon to 1:30pm and/or 2:30pm to 4pm. Aside from the Roost even, one can visit the Reset Surveillance Center in the City on random nights between 8pm and Midnight to find Don hanging out. Don is a bit more shy with his appearances when compared to Resetti though.

Tips

- I know it's bad to reset, but if you want to meet Don for the first time, then RESET, but don't make a habit of it...
- Don is a lot more shy than his brother Sonny. It will take some work trying to find him around.
- Don for sure won't be found in the Reset Survillance Center the first time you visit.

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Don's name is Mr. Racket.
- Don's name comes from a the play on the words "don't reset".
-  In older Japanese versions of Animal Crossing, players could crack and break a random rock with a shovel, leaving a hole which the player could then drop into, leading to the Reset Surveillance Center where Don could be found as well on occasion.

Have you ever gone to the City before on a nice day and you caught a glimpse, from the corner of your eye, quite a distinct fellow by the fountain? Wait, only sometimes though? Yeah, I'm talking about the guy with all of those colorful balloons around him with that little music box thingy-majig that is always playing. Yes, that sea lion guy, you know, Phineas?

Phineas

Okay, so that sea lion that you see on random occasions with the music box, by the fountain, is Phineas. Phineas can be found on random days, between the times of 9am and 7pm. Now, one thing to note though is that he is more common on sunnier days, but that won't prevent him from coming buy during cloudy skies. It's also worth it to note that he does show up in the City if it is raining, if it has rained, or if it is going to rain in the City that day. Now each player, upon speaking with Phineas can receive a sort of item, that can be carried around in your hand. You have a choice of choosing between a balloon, a bunny balloon, a pinwheel, and a bubble wand. There are multiple color variations for the balloons and pinwheels, which are randomly given out by Phineas (you don't get to choose your color), and the bubble wand comes only in the fashionable pink.

Phineas Items

Red Balloon
Orange Balloon
Yellow Balloon
Green Balloon
Cyan Balloon
Blue Balloon
Indigo Balloon
Pink Balloon
Bunny R. Balloon
Bunny O. Balloon
Bunny Y. Balloon
Bunny G. Balloon
Bunny C. Balloon
Bunny B. Balloon
Bunny I. Balloon
Bunny P. Balloon
Red Pinwheel
Orange Pinwheel
Yellow Pinwheel
Green Pinwheel
Cyan Pinwheel
Blue Pinwheel
Indigo Pinwheel
Pink Pinwheel
Bubble Wand

Tips

- Don't time travel! This will cause Phineas to not show up for a whole week!
- Be careful! If you fall in a pitfall, trip and fall, or get stung by bees when carrying any type of balloon, you will lose it.
- Phineas will sometimes give you a prize matching the color of outfit you are wearing.

Fun Facts

- Phineas's name in the Japanese version of the game is Paronchino.
- The City music slightly changes the closer you are to Phineas. Listen in and you'll hear it!
- Some of the villagers that wander around the town make comments about Phineas, saying it's K.K. Slider in disguise working a day job.

Who's that strange fellow that's been hanging around town lately. I've been seeing him a lot on the various bridges around here. He's always muttering some nonesense when I get near him, so I'm never actually close enough to catch his name before he swims away...

Pascal

Pascal the otter is one of the many strange visitors that can pop up in your town from time to time. He can be found on any day, on any of the bridges in your town between the times of 6am to Midnight. Upon speaking to Pascal, he will say something, usually philosophical, but occasionally utter nonsense before doing a flip off of the bridge into the river in which he will then float on his back all of the way out to the ocean. So what is the point of this random character? Well, if you're a big shell collector, you might've luckily found out! If you happen to have a scallop in your pocket upon speaking to Pascal, not only will he hand out his whimsical advice, but he will also give you a piece of furniture from the pirate theme!

Pirate Theme

Helm
Barrel
Keg
Ship Cannon
Anchor
Ship Compass
Sea View
Ship Deck

Tips

- Only one character can get a pirate theme item from Pascal per visit.
- Make sure you have already scallop in your pocket when you talk to him, or else he will just give advice and swim away until next time.
- Scallops show up on the beach, just like any other shell, but they are more rare to find.
- Pascal does not accept white scallops.

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Pascal's name is Rakosuke.
- Pascal's advice is often random, and funny, so listen in!
- Pascal carries a white scallop around his neck.

Night time, it's a great time to pick up and play some Animal Crossing! Walking around town, doing some gardening, maybe even fishing or catching bugs in the summer time. The music is so peaceful, you could go to sleep. Everything is just so calm and serene as you're walking about... until you hear a strange and distant voice calling your name, telling  you to come closer. You walk and then it says, "No, not that way, the other way. Come closer. Follow my voice!" So you turn around and follow the voice. Then before your eyes, in an instant, a ghost appears out of thin air before your own eyes...

Wisp

As many of you know, or have at least heard, Wisp is a wandering ghost who has gotten himself into quite the predicament. What kind of predicament you say? Well, in this iteration of Animal Crossing, he lives in a lamp, I guess he's been upgraded to genie status now. The problem is, he has lost his lamp in your town. You may even find an empty lamp in  your town on the ground somewhere before even seeing Wisp. When can you find Wisp though? He will show up on random weeknights between 8pm to 6am. Your job is to help him find that lamp. If you do, you will be greatly rewarded...

Wisp's Rewards

Once you have successfully helped Wisp and he is safely in his lamp, bring the lamp with you to your attic and rub it. Wisp will then come out and grant you one of the following rewards of your choice.

Weed! - Will remove all weeds from your town.
Smash roaches! - Will kill all roaches in your house.
Give me stuff! - Will let the player choose between a random, uncatalogued piece furniture, a hat, an accessory, or a piece of clothing.

Tips

- Finding an empty lamp in your town is a dead giveaway that Wisp will be in town that night.
- An empty lamp that laying on the ground in your town will disappear after one day.
- If you find the empty lamp and wait a day with it in your pockets, in your house, or elsewhere, Wisp will not come the next night. He will only come the night the empty lamp appears.
- The empty lamp turns into a magic lamp once Wisp is in it.
- You can collect as many magic lamps as you want and use them when you please. They will not affect another empty lamp appear in your town, oddly.
- Wisp can be found anywhere throughout your town, not just the beach acres.

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Wisp's name is Yuutarou.
- Apparently Wisp is agoraphobic, meaning he's afraid of wide open places.
- Wisp first made an appearance in ACGC, but then took a break for ACWW before returning in ACCF.

Over the years, there has always been debates about whether extraterrestrial life existed. There have been those that have claimed to have seen alien spaceships, UFOs, or even an alien itself! Well, Animal Crossing just pushes that envelope further. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, UFOs are indeed real. Of course, if UFOs are real, aliens must exist, right? Sure, aliens by the name of Gulliver.

Gulliver

Gulliver is a very imaginative seagull who likes to think of himself as an extraterrestrial being. He can be found initially hovering over the town in his UFO on random weekdays when the current time ends in a '7' or a '2', like 4:47 or 6:02 for instance. The UFO can be seen hovering over one of the upper acres of the town, and can be shot down with a slingshot if you are quick enough. Upon being shot down, the UFO will crash land into your town, and can be found broken on the beach. You can also find a spaceship part lying somewhere around town, which will come in handy later on. Now fast forward a day. The UFO will still be found at the beach, but you will also find Gulliver lying on the shore out cold. If you talk to him enough times you can wake him up, and he will mention to you that he is missing his spaceship part to his UFO. If you can find the part and give it to him before the end of the day, he will reward you with a rare piece of furniture, usually being a scaled down model of a world icon that you can only get from him, in which most people refer to as a "Gulliver Item."

Gulliver Items

Moai Statue
Tribal Mask
Arc de Triomphe
Merlion
Pagoda
Plate Armor
Mermaid Statue
Mouth of Truth
Manneken Pis
Tower of Pisa
compass
Matryoshka
Chocolates
Metroid

Tips

- Booker will not know if Gulliver is going to be in town that day.
- Don't worry if you miss Gulliver, chances are he will make a second or even a third sweep across your town later.
- Only one player per town can get an item from Gulliver.
- If you happen to shoot down the UFO as it is exiting the town border, and it crash lands out of town, you will not be able to find Gulliver, the broken down UFO, or a spaceship part in your town.

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Gulliver's name is Johnny.
- Gulliver didn't use to be as crazy as you think, in ACGC, he was just a sailor... who couldn't swim.
- Gulliver tends to have a wild imagination. If you talk to him after giving him the spaceship part, he will tend to tell some tall tales.

With Animal Crossing: City Folk being WiFi compatible, the opportunities for fun on the game are almost endless! With that being said, often times, WiFi makes the game a lot more fun, and adds some aspects to the gameplay that some people did not even know about. For example, how about that little kitten that you found crying in your town the other day after you WiFi'd with your buddy? What about that momma cat looking for her lost child? Well, if it weren't for WiFi, you wouldn't be able to receive Katie or Kaitlin into your town!

Katie & Kaitlin

Katie and Kaitlin are both cats that can possibly visit your town after WiFi play with a friend. Kaite is a little kitten, while Kaitlin is the momma cat, the mother of Katie. What is the point of them coming to your town exactly? Well, if you're the lucky one, Katie will show up in your town, crying. Upon finding her, she will mention that she's lost and needs to go back to a certain town. She'll tell you the name of the town she needs to go back to, and it'll be a friend's town. She'll stay in your town until you deliver her to the respective town, or for about a week if you do not deliver her. Once you deliver Katie, you will get a gift in the mail, usually the following day, and it will be on of the rare Kaite & Kaitlin items that you can only receive from them. If you are the unlucky person, you will have Kaitlin in your town. If you are at this end of the stick, there is nothing you can really do, as the other person has to bring Katie to your town. Kaitlin will just be wandering around your town and is worried that her daughter is lost in a certain town, and she will mention the name of the town. She will stay for about a week if your friend doesn't ever deliver Katie.

Katie & Kaitlin Items

Papa Bear
Lily-Pad Table
Apple TV
Lovely Phone
Music Box
Portrait

Tips

- Do note that only the person with Katie in their town will get a gift when successfully delivering the kitten.
- If you don't want to bother with either of the cats in your town, you can delete whomever it is on your friends list to get the cat in your town to go away the next day.
- If you have Katie following you, be sure to walk slow, or else she'll trip, fall, and start crying again and you'll have to go back and talk to her again.

Fun Facts

- Katie's name in the Japanese version of the game is Maigo-chan.
- Kaitlin's name in the Japanese version of the game is Okaa-san.
- When Katie is successfully delivered to her respective town, a cute cutscene occurs when the player delivering Katie first arrives.

Have you ever seen a creepy animal wandering around your town? No, not creepy as in Jack or Pete, creepy as in faceless. Yes, faceless. Well, if you have encountered this strange animal, you're in for a surprise. It seems that you've encountered the faceless cat, Blanca!

Blanca

Blanca, or better known sometimes as the mysterious or suspicious cat, can randomly visit your town on any day at any time. Blanca has been reknowned, since the ACGC days, for having no face, or at least a face that somebody has previously drawn on her. If you find Blanca in your town, she will ask you to draw a face on her based on one of twelve emotions she is feeling. It's pretty much as simple as that, so let out your artistic style, and draw!

Possible Emotions

Adult
Angry
Cool
Crazy
Creepy
Cute
Fancy
Grumpy
Happy
Mature
Serious
Striking

Tips

- Drawing a face on Blanca is purely for fun. She will not reward you in any way for doing so.
- Blanca will not leave until you draw a face on her, thus blocking out other possible villagers.
- If you do not want Blanca to visit in the future, turn off WiiConnect24.

Fun Facts

- Blanca's name in the Japanese version of the game is Ayashiineko.
- Sometimes Blanca will appear in your town with a face that somebody else has drawn on her. Sometimes your face may appear in another town too!
- Blanca's gender is actually undefined. It is just often assumed that Blanca is a female because of the flower dress that Blanca happens to wear.

It's hard to believe we've been through twenty of these articles already! Well, as many of you may know, Festivale is occuring this month, and that means one thing, candy right?! Yeah, of course, the Festivale is all about candy, winning candy and then giving it away that is. But to whom must one give their candy away to? If you want some pieces of a rare furniture series, you better be giving your candy to Pavé!

Pavé

Once a year, on the Monday before Fat Tuesday, you will awake one morning in late winter to find confetti flying through the air and odd carnival like music playing through town. When this happens, you know it's the Festivale and that Pavé is in town! Now the point of the Festivale is to play games with your villagers and win candy! Now Pavé will request three pieces of a certain type of candy, and it is up to you to provide! If you fulfil his request, you will be rewarded with a piece of furniture (or carpet/wallpaper) from the Pavé series!

Festivale

For more detailed information about Festivale and getting the Pavé series, check out the Festivale Guide, posted by iolite!

Tips

- Having trouble winning the games with the villagers? Need extra candy? Try wearing a complete outfit when talking to a villager for a freebie?
- Have any leftover candy from Halloween or Bunny Day? Pavé will take those too!
- The villagers like to bet in their games! Be sure to keep your pockets clear your pockets of valuable items, you may lose them, and this includes your candy!
- Empty letters are helpful for storing candy out of sight from your villagers.

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Pavé's name is Bellina.
- If you look closely enough, you'll notice that Pavé hardly has any feathers, seeing as Pavé is a peacock. In fact, Pavé is standing in front of a diorama of fake feathers!
- Pavé's gender is widely debatable...
- What kind of dance is he/she dancing?!

Mail is such a vital concept in the Animal Crossing games! You send and receive mail from your villagers. Your mom sends you mail every once in awhile. If you have WiFi, you can even send mail to your friends out of town! Of course getting and sending mail is nice, but what's even better is when you get a nice gift along with your letter too! Of course, just like in real life though, the mail just doesn't magically appear in your mailbox everyday, the mailman or mailwoman delivers it for you! Well, in City Folk, this is no different. Have you ever even met Pete the mailbird?

Pete

Pete the pelican is the town's resident mailbird that delivers all of the mail in town. While you may not see him like you do Pelly or Phyllis, he still does exist! Most often, you will probably find outside your house, delivering the latest DLC to you, but you can also find him wandering around town, just doing his job! If you have no other special visitor in town on any given weekday, you may be able to spot Pete between 9:00am and 9:30am or between 5:00pm or 5:30pm. While he won't give you anything if you find him, he'll gladly talk to you for a minute or two, usually with something interesting to say. Don't keep him talking too long though, as you don't want him to get in trouble due to talking on the job!

Tips

- Make sure you have an internet connection on your Wii and have WiiConnect24 turned on if you want to get DLC delivered to you!
- Booker will not know whether or not Pete is in town, but your villagers might have something to say if he is.
- Even though he may be on the job, don't be afraid to strike up a short conversation with him!

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Pete's name is Pelio.
- Pete seems to be stuck in a tragic love triangle, between two sisters!
- In ACWW, you could shoot Pete down with a slingshot as he flew through the sky! Ouch! Maybe that's why you can only find him walking in this game...
- In ACGC, Pete would often mention about his clean record of never being late on the job. I wonder if he still has that record...?

So you've got that fancy new fountain built in your town. It looks great in front of the gate for all to see, but did you know that there is more two it than just decoration and looks? If you didn't know, there is actually a goddess that lives within the fountain! Who is that goddess you ask? Well, it is the legendary fountain goddess Serena!

Serena

Serena is the legendary fountain goddess, well at least in the Animal Crossing universe. You can actually "summon" Serena to appear out of your fountain, but only on certain conditions. If you happen to throw an axe into the front of the fountain (where there is a gap in the fencing) it will fly right in and Serena will appear! Well, what then? Serena will usually be pretty irritated that an axe was thrown into her holy domain, but you'll normally have a chance to redeem yourself by answering some various questions. Depending on how you answer (and what mood Serena is in), you will be rewarded with a special golden or silver axe! More than likely though, you will either get your axe back or even worse: not get anything in return at all!

Outwitting Serena

For the best tips and ideas on how to get that Golden or Silver Axe, check out the ACCF Town Fountain Guide!

Tips

- Honesty can go a long way, but it does not always help.
- You can only throw in one axe per day.
- Don't have a fountain? After spending 200,000 for the new bridge in the Town Fund, spend another 400,000 bells and a fountain will be built soon!

Fun Facts

- Serena's name in the Japanese version of the game is Megami-sama.
- Oddly, you cannot throw in a golden or silver axe into the fountain.
- If you go to the City and take a look at the fountain there, you will find a statue of Serena in the center.

The City is a great place to travel to on a nice, sunny afternoon. There is so much to see and do. You can get your hair done, get a shoe shine, see a show, and if your lucky, even get a prize! The City seems like such a happy place, but be careful, there is a shady part of town. You might know what I'm talking about; you know that alleyway that leads off to the left part of town? Yeah, and there's that building with a door that's as tight as a safe. Yes, I'm talking about that shady part of town. Have you ever been down there though, is it really as shady as some people say?

Crazy Redd

Crazy Redd, also just known as Redd, is  the owner of a black market shop in the City. Located on the far left end of town, his shop sells all sorts of goods and wares. The problem is that it's pretty difficult to get in. Crazy Redd's shop is exclusive to members only. That means to get in, you've got to have an invitation, and you've got to cough up some dough to pay the one-time membership fee. To get an invitation, you've first got to have connections. If you've already visited the City and have been denied entry into Crazy Redds, talk to some of your villagers around town. It's likely one of them is a member too, and they can mail you an invite. If you also have WiFi friends that are members, they can send you invites too. Once you have an invite, go back to Crazy Redd's shop in the City, with 3,000 bells and you're gold to get in, for life!

Redd's Shop is open from 10am to 1am every day, and sells three items a week: two pieces of furniture and one painting. He restocks his shop ever Wednesday. You've got to be careful with old Redd though, he likes to keep his prices high, and you can't guarantee whether his paintings are authentic or not... He also will sell items that Nook sells, but Redd charges a higher price for them! Let's just leave it at this: if you shop at Redd's, buyer beware. Crazy Redd's shop is not all bad news though. Many of his wares that he sells are exclusive only to his shop!

Redd Exclusive Items

Tips

- Despite popular belief, there is no way to determine beforehand whether a painting Redd is selling is real or fake. You'll just have to go with your gut and take a chance.
- Following Feng Shui can actually increase your chances of genuine paintings and Crazy Redd exclusives being in stock.
- Whenever you make a purchase, Redd will give you an invite card. Send this to your friends! You never know who may need one, and if they join using your invite, you'll get 1,000 bells from Redd next time you visit!

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Crazy Redd's name is Tsunekichi.
- Redd is kitsune, which is the Japanese word for fox. In Japanese folklore, foxes were often portrayed as ones who played tricks on others.
- In ACGC and ACWW, Redd would travel town to town in a tent, selling his wares.

I'm pretty sure at this point in time, most people are pretty familiar with the Marquee, located in the City. You can go there to catch a decent show for a decent price. The real deal about the Marquee though is the fact that one can learn all sorts of emotions there! Apparently, there is even a set of rare emotions that can be learned, but only by an old, retired, frill-necked lizard named Frillard that makes his appearance once in a blue moon!

Frillard

Frillard, the frill-necked lizard, puts on a show at the Marquee on rare occasions. Unlike Dr. Shrunk, people say his shows are pretty worthwhile. Either way, Frillard is a sight to be seen, as he also teaches some rare emotions that you can only learn from him! Below is the list of Frillard-only emotions. If you're lucky enough to see one of these emotions in the list the Clerk provides, be sure to choose it!

Emotions Taught by Frillard

Agreement
Bashfulness
Inspiration
Outrage
Sleepiness
Thought

Tips

- The Marquee updates its emotions on Sunday, so be sure to check once a week if you're looking for Frillard!
- Frillard only teaches the emotions mentioned above. Likewise, Dr. Shrunk does not teach any of those six emotions.
- Don't forget 800 bells for the show!

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Frillard's name is Kyosho.
- Frillard also goes by "Master Frillard", probably because Dr. Shrunk is his student.
- Frillard likes to say that he is only 110 years young! Frill-necked lizards sure must live for a long time!

Special Character Profile #25

Welcome to the very last edition of our Special Character Profile series! Before diving into our last article in the Special Character Profile series, I'd like to say thank you to all of the readers over the past two and a half years. If you've been with us since the beginning, kudos to you! I hope you have been able to learn a lot of new and interesting things about some of the special characters in Animal Crossing: City Folk. We close our Special Character Profile series today with the series' famous wandering cat. Known for riding the rails, frequenting coffee shops, and running tag modes, without further ado, I introduce you to Rover!

Rover

Rover, in Animal Crossing: City Folk, is pretty much the go-to cat of the game. He was the guy that introduced you to the world of Animal Crossing, when you sitting on the bus all alone, and he's the hearty fellow that greets you and loads your town for you every time you log on to your game! You can also talk to Rover on the phone in your attic. He's the cool cat in charge of making sure all of your settings are good to go. Need to adjust the time? Go to Rover! Need to turn on WiiConnect24 for your game? Go to Rover of course!

Tips

- Not really any tips for finding or interacting with Rover. You interact with him whenever you play the game!

Fun Facts

- In the Japanese version of the game, Rover's name is Mishiranuneko.
- When hearing the name Rover, a dog usually comes to mind. Yet Rover is a cat. Odd...
- Rover won't forget your birthday! If you play on your birthday, Rover will give you a special birthday greeting.

Trendy Turnips #1--What Are Turnips?

Welcome to the first edition of Trendy Turnips! In this new series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will simply take a look at simply turnips are and what purpose they serve in ACCF.

In ACCF, a great way to make money is to participate in the Stalk Market, which is basically buying and selling turnips, white turnips to be exact. Turnips can be bought from Joan on Sunday mornings, from 6am to 12pm. Joan will be selling white turnips for a varied price, or red turnip seeds, which can be planted and grown. More in-depth information for each type of turnip will be provided in later articles.

How do you make money if you are buying turnips? Well, the answer is quite simple! Tom Nook will buy your turnips for you, prices varying of course; it wouldn't be called a Stalk Market for nothing! When it comes to turnips, there is always some sort of risk involved, red and white. Also note that turnips can be sold in other towns as well, so don't hold back!

There is also one last word of advice. Be careful if you plan to partake in turnip buying and selling. If you are an avid time traveler, you will have no good luck. A strong word of advice right now is to not time travel, period, if participating in the Stalk Market. Time traveling does not bring any good results.

Bad news aside, I hope everyone is excited as this series of Trendy Turnips jumps off to a start. Stay tuned next month for the second article entitled "Trendy Turnips #2--The Needy Child: The Red Turnip." Thanks for reading, and hope you have enjoyed this edition of Trendy Turnips!

Trendy Turnips #2--The Needy Child: The Red Turnip

Welcome to the second edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a look at red turnips and some secrets behind successful selling!

On Sunday mornings if you talk to Joan, you can find that you can buy not only white turnips, but also something called red turnip seeds. Joan will only be selling one bag red turnip seeds a week though, so this is where you must be very careful. A bag of red turnip seeds will cost 1,000 bells. It may seem like a steep price, but it really is worth it in the end. Now, once bought, the bag of red turnip seeds can be planted whenever you want, and unlike white turnips, they will not rot away over time. Once planted though, the red turnip will need a lot of care.

To keep a red turnip in tip-top condition, you must water the turnip at least once a day. If the red turnip does not get its daily watering, it will rot away, but don't worry all hope is not lost! If you end up missing a day of watering, just water the withered red turnip with a silver watering can! The red turnip will perk up and start its growth cycle all over again. Note, that this will only work with a silver watering can, not a gold or normal one!

Okay, so you've planted your red turnip and are hoping to make bunches of bells off of this sucker when it's done growing, but how do you know when to dig it up and take it to Nook? Well the following growth chart below will show you how many bells Nook will shell out for the size of a red turnip. Note that a red turnip will grow one size each day, and thus the chart below corresponds days to bells.

0 days (same day as planting) - 2 bells
1 day (day after planting) - 100 bells
2 days - 500 bells
3 days - 2,000 bells
4 days - 4,000 bells
5 days - 8,000 bells
6+ days - 16,000 bells

As you can see, it is best to wait six days before digging up your red turnip to make the maximum profit. This means that if you plant your red turnip seeds on the Sunday you buy them, you can dig up your red turnip on Saturday and sell it for 16,000 bells, thus allowing you to buy another bag of seeds the next day to start the whole cycle over again!

That's about it when it comes to red turnips. Just remember to give it a healthy watering each day, and if you do forget to water it for a day and decide to revive the red turnip with your silver can, please remember that the growth cycle will start over! Anyways, stay tuned next month for the third article in the series entitled "Trendy Turnips #3--The Prominent Child: The White Turnip." Thanks for reading, and I hope you have enjoyed this edition of Trendy Turnips!

Trendy Turnips #3--The Prominent Child: The White Turnip

Welcome to the third edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a general look at white turnips and learn some of the basics about them.

As you know, every Sunday morning Joan comes to town to sell white turnips and red turnips. Now red turnips, if you can recall can generate quite a bit of income, but the money is really at the side of the white turnips, and the actual Stalk Market. Joan will always be selling white turnips, but the price that you can buy them from  her varies from week to week. The price range for buying white turnips from Joan is 90 bells, at the lowest, and 110 bells at the maximum. Now this price isn't for a whole bunch of turnips, it's for each turnip you pay for. White turnips can be bought by quantities of ten, and one set of one hundred turnips will take up one space in your pockets. The good thing about buying and selling turnips though is that everyone can make money off of them, even beginners! Most of the time, you will always get your moneys worth back in turnips, or more!

Now it comes to the point of selling these turnips that you've purchased. Now Nook will buy white turnips any day of the week, with the exception of Sundays. Also, like Joan, his price in which you can sell turnips varies, and it varies a lot more drastically than Joans. The lowest price that Nook will buy turnips has been noted at around the mid-20s, while the highest has been noted around 650 or so, but some say he will even go into the 700s. Nook has two two turnip prices a day: an AM price, and a PM price. It's a smart idea to check both, as both prices are crucial to tracking the turnip trends, and knowing the right time when to sell.

When it comes to selling turnips, with Nook, it really helps to know what the turnip trends are. What are turnip trends you ask? Well, they are basically a series of patterns that Nook will follow with the turnip prices, and if you follow them correctly, it will help you know when the best time is to sell your turnips, and get the biggest profit for your money. There are many different types of turnip trends, which will be explored with more depth in future articles, but just know that you should try to check all the prices that you can throughout the week. A nice tid-bit to know also is that you are also capable of selling turnips in a friend's town, so don't fret if your town doesn't have the good prices!

The last tip I have for those getting into white turnips and the Stalk Market is to sell your turnips before the next Sunday! Never leave your turnips unsold past Saturday night. Even if you have the worst price in the world on Saturday night, it's better to get some money back, than none. Why, you ask? Turnips will instantly spoil on the Sunday after you buy them, rendering them unsellable, and turning them basically into the equivalent of trash that you can fish out of the river and ocean. So sell your turnips no matter what!

So you've learned the basics of white turnips. What's next? Well the next few articles in the series will be in-depth looks at the different turnip trends. There will be examples, as well as helpful times to sell. Even if you aren't good with tracking the turnip trends, you'll learn over time. Just remember to check both prices during the day and to sell your turnips by Saturday night, and you'll be well on your way to becoming a Stalk Market tycoon! As always, thanks for reading, hope you've enjoyed, and stay tuned next month for the fourth article in the series entitled "Trendy Turnips #4--Riding the Rails of a Rollercoaster."

Trendy Turnips #4--Riding the Rails of a Rollercoaster

Welcome to the fourth edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a look at one of many of Tom Nook's Stalk Market trends, called the rollercoaster.

Alright, so we know that Tom Nook has a variety of different trends that he follows when it comes to the Stalk Market. Each trend is a bit different, and knowing these trends will determine when you need to sell and sometimes even when to sell out of town. Today we'll take a look at probably the most common Stalk Market trend, and often times, the most difficult to deal with, and is known as the rollercoaster trend. The rollercoaster trend often annoyers most that participate in the Stalk Market because it always keeps you on your toes. The trend gets the name of rollercoaster because like a rollercoaster goes up and down, so does the turnip prices. In a rollercoaster week, Nook's turnip prices will always be completely random, so you'll never know exactly when to sell until the time comes where you can get a decent profit.

Now that you know what defines what a rollercoaster pattern is now, let's go a little bit more in depth. How do you decipher a rollercoaster from other patterns? Well, like I said, the prices will be completely random, but sometimes it can be a bit tricky, and disguise itself as another pattern at times. One of the biggest hints that you're in a rollercoaster week is that your Monday morning prices is higher than 90 bells or if it is lower than 70 bells. Usually that is a sure-fire giveaway. Also, if your Monday evening price turns out higher than your Monday morning price, that's usually a dead giveaway as well. The last hint, which is usually the trickiest one to pick up on if you're not checking every single price, is that if you're noticing a drop in the prices, sort of similar to a spike week, which we'll get into later in the series, take notice to the intervals that the prices are dropping. If the price is dropping in intervals of six or more, you're probably in a rollercoaster.

Okay, so we now know how to pick out a rollercoaster from the rest of the Stalk Market crowd. Now how do you know when to sell? Well the general range of rollercoaster prices is about 30 bells to 151 bells, so you could either luck out, or get gyped. Obviously, you want to make some sort of profit, so it would be best to sell at any price above the price that you bought from Joan. If you're really wanting to play risky though, you could try to wait and see if you get a price of 130 bells or above, which will give you a somewhat nice profit. Oftentimes though, people loathe riding the rails of a rollercoaster and will sell as early as possible, or just sell out of town for a better price. The decision is really up to you.

Finally, let's actually take a look at what a rollercoaster week looks like. Below will be an example for you to look at and use as a basis if you want to.

S: 100
M: 136/79
T: 71/65
W: 95/83
R: 125/105
F: 103/61
Sa: 57/82

See how the prices are completely random? Also note that the Monday morning price is way above Joan's selling price, which is a dead rollercoaster giveaway.

Now it's quiz time! Below are three turnip trends. Can you pick out the rollercoaster?

CHOICE A
S: 100
M: 83/78
T: 74/70
W: 67/62
R: 59/55
F: 50/46
Sa: 42/36

CHOICE B
S: 100
M: 80/77
T: 73/70
W: 67/63
R: 88/89
F: 190/201
Sa: 168/79

CHOICE C
S: 100
M: 71/61
T: 54/147
W: 111/122
R: 140/146
F: 134/145
Sa: 84/76

So looking at the three choices, choice A can be a bit deceiving at first, but can be easily ruled out, as the prices aren't really random at all. The prices just keep decreasing. This is a steady decline pattern. We'll actually be featuring this trend next month. Moving onto choice B, at a glance, you would think this would be a rollercoaster, but keep in mind that rollercoasters don't exceed prices of 151, and there are clearly a few prices above that. This trend is actually a four-price low spike, which we'll get into at a later date. Choice C is actually the correct answer. Notice how the prices clearly jump all over the place, and stay in the range of what a rollercoaster's distinct prices are. Did you get it correct?

That pretty much wraps it all up when it comes to rollercoasters. Rollercoasters may be fun to ride at the amusement parks, but they can be somewhat of a pain in Animal Crossing, especially if you don't know your turnip trends. Stay tuned next month for the next article in our Trendy Turnip series entitled "Trendy Turnips #5--The Downfall of the Steady Decline." Hope you enjoyed this edition and thanks for reading!

Trendy Turnips #5--The Downfall of the Steady Decline

Welcome to the fifth edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a look at one of many of Tom Nook's Stalk Market trends, called the steady decline.

Last week we took a look at the rollercoaster trend. This week, we dig into a trend called the steady decline, and is pretty much the worst sort of trend you want to get. Why? Well, just like its name, the prices of a steady decline just keep dropping. So what really defines a steady decline price trend, and how do you not get ripped off? Well, let me tell you right now, you will probably be ripped off by a steady decline, there's really no way around it. The good news is that you can go sell in a friend's town if they have better prices.

Now looking at how to decipher a steady decline compared to the other trends is pretty easy. A steady decline's price normally starts in the 70s or 80s, just like a spike. The steady decline will then steadily drop in price each time of day by about one to five bells, and will never increase. Many people get confused between a spike and a steady decline in the beginning of a week because they both behave the same way. Let me tell you right here, if you haven't seen your prices increase by Friday morning, you're in a steady decline. Once you know you're in a steady decline, it really is just best to sell out of town, because by that rate, your prices are usually terribly low, and any decent price will be appealing.

Finally, let's actually take a look at what a steady decline week looks like. Below will be an example for you to look at and use as a basis if you want to.

S: 100
M: 83/78
T: 74/70
W: 67/62
R: 59/55
F: 50/46
Sa: 42/36

See how the prices just keep dropping without any increase?  Also note that the Monday morning price is in the 80s, which usually signals a steady decline or some sort of a spike.

Now it's quiz time! Below are three turnip trends. Can you pick out the steady decline?

CHOICE A

S: 100
M: 84/81
T: 78/74
W: 69/65
R: 60/115
F: 168/435
Sa: 205/111

CHOICE B

S: 100
M: 70/67
T: 64/61
W: 57/53
R: 50/47
F: 43/41
Sa: 37/33

CHOICE C

S: 100
M: 136/79
T: 71/65
W: 95/83
R: 125/105
F: 103/61
Sa: 57/82

So looking at the choices, hopefully you didn't choose choice A. This one starts off like a steady decline, but it is actually a large spike pattern. See how the prices start to increase on Thursday afternoon? Remember, a steady decline will never have an increase in prices. Hopefully you chose choice B, because that is the steady decline. The price starts in the 70s which is the first easy sign, and then the prices just keep dropping, there is not an increase at all. What about choice C you ask? Well that one is a rollercoaster. See how the prices are jumping all over the place? Also note that the starting price is way too high to be considered to be a steady decline.

Having trouble figuring out what your turnip trend you are in this week? Still not sure when to sell? Check out Kurt Boyer's Stalk Market Wizard. It can be a helpful tool to help you figure out the right time to sell! Do note that the wizard may be accurate, but it will not always be correct, especially if you have missing prices, so it is always best to try to learn the turnip trends yourself as well.

Well, that's the end of this segment of Trendy Turnips. Hopefully you don't encounter many steady declines in your town, because they're just big downers. Nonetheless, stay tuned next month for the next article in our Trendy Turnip series entitled "Trendy Turnips #6--Spike: Turnips, Not Volleyball Silly." Hope you enjoyed this edition and thanks for reading!

Trendy Turnips #6--Spike: Turnips, Not Volleyball Silly

Welcome to the sixth edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a general look at one of many of Tom Nook's Stalk Market trends, called the spike.

Last month, we took a peak at the wretched steady decline. This time around though, we will look at what everybody's favorite trend is: the spike! Now the spike is basically what its name states. The prices of a spike will spike up in price, leaving you a good profit, that is if you know when to properly sell. When do you sell though? No fear, you'll learn quickly how!

A spike week will start off, much like a steady decline. Prices will start off usually in the 70s or 80s. The prices will drop by about one to five bells per period. Don't fret though. As this looks like a steady decline, it often is not. You'll know whether it is a spike or not, because sometime during mid-week, there will be a rise in the price! Usually the first rise will be on a Wednesday or Thursday, but Tuesdays and Fridays are also in the question at times too, so don't rule those out! After that, the price will rise up, usually two more times, the third time being the final big spike. Now that's the time to sell. After the spiked price, Nook's prices will then decline back down. Sometimes though, if you miss the big price, you can still sell maybe a period or two afterwards and still make a profit.

Having trouble figuring out what your turnip trend you are in this week? Still not sure when to sell? Check out Kurt Boyer's Stalk Market Wizard. It can be a helpful tool to help you figure out the right time to sell! Do note that the wizard may be accurate, but it will not always be correct, especially if you have missing prices, so it is always best to try to learn the turnip trends yourself as well.

Now generally, there are four types of spikes: a low spike, a four-price low spike, a medium spike, and a high spike. We will detail each of these spikes later on in the series, but for now, keep in mind that they all generally follow the same rules. Since this was more of an introduction to spikes, there's no quiz this time around, We will take a more in-depth look at different types of spikes in the future, starting with the next issue, "Trendy Turnips #7--The Low Spike: Don't Worry, It's a Good Thing!" As always, thanks for reading, and tune in next month for the latest issue of Trendy Turnips!

Trendy Turnips #7--The Low Spike: Don't Worry, It's a Good Thing!

Welcome to the seventh edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will look at what is called a low spike.

Last month, we looked at a general spike pattern, keeping in mind that a spike will start off like a steady decline, but then eventually jump up into a spike. Now this week we will go over the slightly confusing low spike. Now the low spike, as its name implies, is a spike in which the final price is low. Now when I say low, I don't mean steady decline low, or even rollecoaster low. Usually, the final price of a low spike ends up around the mid-100 range, sometimes lower and sometimes higher. Oftentimes, you'll see a spike coming and you won't know it's a low spike until it hits that third jump and it's in that mid-100 range. Other times though, you'll know it'll be a low spike earlier than that.

There's something a bit different about low spikes, compared to the other types of spikes we will discuss later on. There are actually two categories of low spikes. One is considered a normal low spike, which I just talked about above. The second category is the trickier one, and is dubbed the four-price low spike. Now, unlike any other kind of spike, this spike will have four prices before the final increase in which you'd sell at. Now these four prices in between generally go up, drop once, and then go up again. There are also occasions in which the prices can just rise four times. I know it sounds confusing, so let's look at an example of both kinds of low spikes.

The first example below is of a normal low-spike, while the second example will be an example of a four-price low spike.

S: 100
M: 84/81
T: 78/74
W: 69/65
R: 60/85
F: 115/168
Sa: 111/ 89

S: 100
M: 76/71
T: 68/65
W: 62/58
R: 54/116
F: 113/139
Sa: 148/145

Sort of get the gist of things now? How about testing your knowledge out with the following quiz?

CHOICE A

S: 100
M: 76/71
T: 67/62
W: 58/54
R: 51/46
F: 41/37
Sa: 32/28

CHOICE B

S: 100
M: 80/76
T: 73/69
W: 66/62
R: 59/114
F: 186/531
Sa: 173/88

CHOICE C

S: 100
M: 79/75
T: 72/69
W: 85/89
R: 141/156
F: 149/76
Sa: 72/69

So let's take a look at our choices now. Taking a look at choice A, hopefully you didn't choose it. I hope it's obvious that this one is a steady decline. Now choice B shouldn't have caught you off either, but if it did, take a closer look at it. This is indeed a spike, but take a look at the top price. It's 531, way too high to be in the low spike range, because remember, a low spike generally hits around the mid-100s. That leaves us with choice C, a four price low spike. If you chose that one, good job!

Having trouble figuring out what your turnip trend you are in this week? Still not sure when to sell? Check out Kurt Boyer's Stalk Market Wizard. It can be a helpful tool to help you figure out the right time to sell! Do note that the wizard may be accurate, but it will not always be correct, especially if you have missing prices, so it is always best to try to learn the turnip trends yourself as well.

That pretty much wraps up this edition of Trendy Turnips! I hope you enjoyed and learned a bit about a couple of variations of spike patterns. Next week, we'll continue the series with the rest of our spike patterns with the next edition being entitled "Trendy Turnips #8--Medium & Large Spikes: Holy Mackerel!" Thanks again for reading!

Welcome to the eighth edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will take a gander at everybody's favorite: the medium and large spikes!

Now that we have covered the low spike, I can happily say we can move on to bigger and better things, literally! This time around, we will discuss the other end of the spike spectrum. Now again, keeping in mind that a spike starts off similar to a steady decline, a medium and a large spike will end up jumping to a price over 200. At times, sometimes you can even get a price over 500! So what is the distinction between a medium and a large spike? Well, there really is no set distinction, as they are pretty much the same thing, it's just the ending price that really sets them apart. Generally, most consider a medium spike to end between the 100 and 300 range while a large spike will be above the 300 price range.

With that being said, here's the quick overview of how a medium/large spike works. It starts out just like any other spike and steady decline. Then mid-week there will be an initial rise. After that, a second rise will occur, and then finally the big jump to the final, largest price before the prices start to decrease again. Now, you may be wondering if a medium or large spike can follow the possible four-price rise like a low spike? No. Let's just leave it at that. If it is a a medium or large spike, it will always be a three price rise.

Now, let's check out an example of a medium spike and then one of a large spike!

S: 100
M: 78/75
T: 70/67
W: 108/196
R: 273/189
F: 82/79
Sa: 75/70

S: 100
M: 70/66
T: 63/59
W: 55/51
R: 86/156
F: 443/159
Sa: 126/72

So that's the basically how medium and large spikes work. Think you understand? Well, try your hand with the following quiz! Be sure to do your best now, as this is our last quiz of the series!

CHOICE A

S: 100
M: 82/77
T: 73/119
W: 180/520
R: 178/105
F: 81/78
Sa: 74/70

CHOICE B

S: 100
M: 76/71
T: 68/65
W: 62/58
R: 54/116
F: 113/139
Sa: 148/145

CHOICE C

S: 100
M: 85/86
T: 68/63
W: 54/74
R: 120/114
F: 101/56
Sa: 51/112

So do you think you know the answer? Well if you guessed Choice A, you were correct! That one is obviously a large spike. See that 520 price there? Choice B was a spike, but it was a low spike, in fact, the largest price didn't even break 150! Hopefully you didn't guess Choice C, as that one was just a simple rollercoaster.

Having trouble figuring out what turnip trend you are in this week? Still not sure when to sell? Check out Kurt Boyer's Stalk Market Wizard. It can be a helpful tool to help you figure out the right time to sell! Do note that the wizard may be accurate, but it will not always be correct, especially if you have missing prices, so it is always best to try to learn the turnip trends yourself as well.

Well, that basically covers all the types of turnip patterns there are in the world of turnips. Next month the Trendy Turnips series will come to a close with our last article, entitled "Trendy Turnips #9--In Conclusion". Thanks for reading, and hope you stay tuned for our last article next month!

Trendy Turnips #9--In Conclusion

Welcome to the ninth edition of Trendy Turnips! In this series of articles, we will explore the world of turnips and the Stalk Market in Animal Crossing: City Folk! In this month's article, we will wrap up the series, briefly going everything brought up in past articles.

Here's a brief overview of everything covered in previous articles:

- The Stalk Market is a great way to make money.
- Joan comes to sell turnips on Sunday mornings.
- Red Turnips need to be watered every day.
- Nook's white turnip prices fluctuate. There will be two prices each day, with the exception of Sunday.
- Always sell your white turnips before Sunday.
- A rollercoaster week will not have a set pattern of prices.
- It's best to sell out of town during a steady decline week.
- There are three types of spikes: low, medium, and large.
- A low spike can appear in two forms, a three-price or a four-price.
- Medium and large spikes always have a three price rise, the third rise being the time you want to sell.
- Always try to check your prices! This is crucial to predicting when you'll want to sell for the biggest profit!

Those are the summarized points covered in all of the previous articles. Now, before we close, I would like to give a few more pointers and suggestions. First of all, I would like to invite anyone who is interested to check out the High Turnip Prices & Turnip Trend Discussion thread for ACCF. This thread is a great place to check out if you ever have any questions or are struggling with tracking your turnip trends. That thread is also great for finding other towns to sell in, if your prices don't happen to be working out for you. Also, another helpful tool for you to use when tracking turnips is Kurt Boyer's Stalk Market Wizard. It is very helpful if you are lost and are not sure when you should sell. Do note that the wizard may be accurate, but it will not always be correct, especially if you have missing prices, so it is always best to try to learn the turnip trends yourself as well.

I would like to give my thanks to the ACCF Monthly Info team for helping me out with these articles, providing ideas, proof-reading, and even helping me fine tune some things. I would also like to give a big thank you to Dalek, as he was somewhat like a mentor to me, when I was first learning all about turnips. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be writing these articles. Lastly, I would like to thank all of the readers, once again for reading. With that being said, I hope you have all enjoyed the Trendy Turnips series, and hopefully you at least learned something new. Keep in touch with the Stalk Market and happy selling!

Outro

Congratulations, you've made it to the end! Okay, so maybe that's not that big of an accomplishment, but good job nonetheless. I'd like to say thanks right now to you, the reader, and in fact all of our readers of the ACCF Monthly Info guides over that past two-plus years. Without your encouragement, suggestions, ideas, questions, etc., this guide would not exist. So many thanks to all of you out there that read this, and have read ACCF Monthly Info Guides of the past. Secondly, I'd like to give a huge, huge thank you to the ACCF Monthly Info team that I've worked with over the past two-plus years. Without the individual contributions of each member of the group, whether past or present, none of this would have been possible. There is no way I could have done something like this all on my own. Major props to everyone on the team there. Lastly, I'd just like to say that I've had a blast working on these guides and articles over the past couple of years.  I'm so glad to see how far that this project has grown and evolved; it's been awesome. With the end of one piece of work comes the beginning of another though. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is on the horizon, and I have already got some cool ideas in mind for the game, so keep an eye out in the future! See you around the boards, and be sure to keep playing AC, the game that's always playing, even when you are not!
