I would like to tell of my experiences with this trick.

I began the day after a villager moved out.  I had one of each villager type except smug, so the game threw almost the entire list of smug villagers at me--mainly in horribly inconvenient locations--before I got one I could tolerate either way.

I have notoriously poor luck in video games when it comes to getting rare/good things.  For example, long ago in World of Warcraft, I spent two weeks farming for a red whelpling for several hours each day.  I got lots of other interesting items, but no dragon.  So, it was distressing but unsurprising that, in ACNL, it took me possibly ten hours over the course of three days to get Zell in a spot that wasn't destroying hybrids or perfect cherry trees, or blocking an important feature like the cafe.  I finally got it, though.

I was given, as I said, almost every smug villager on the list before this favourable outcome.  Many of the ugliest villagers appeared three or four times each.  Tex appeared twice, both times on top of some perfect cherry trees.  My favourite, Lopez, parked literally one square south of the Roost!  I was heartbroken.  You can imagine my glowing elation at finally getting Zell in a good place.

Knowing my horrid luck, I would not like to try this trick if I already had one of each villager personality.  It would cycle through the ugly ones (which I think make up the majority of NPCs) several times before giving me anything decent, and the first time a good villager would appear, it would be in an unacceptable location.  XD  I think, at that point, this trick is best used to at least get newbies out of your hybrids.

Thanks!

I got Bob to move into a great spot with this.
Currently I'm reseting to get a good Snooty villager to camp (I don't have a Snooty villager in my town) and it seems that I'm getting thrown Snooty villagers at me most of the time.

So when a campsite villager it's moving into your town it's 2 days and the spot where their house will be will appear into your town right?

maybe an easier idea:

when someone moves away, go to Isabelle, start up a PWP (largest you have) on the spot where you do NOT want somebody to put his/her house down


wait for the new villager


cancel the project


WORKS AVERY TIME

no sweat whatsoever

Omg, the same thing happened to me with Beau and Re-Tail. Literally like two spaces in front of the tile. Whhhhyyyy. But I think if you're looking for a certain personality, the reset trick is great if you're lacking it. Especially if you're looking for a certain character. I was missing a smug, but with some resets, I got Marshal. No need to go through the hassle of trading with someone else.<3

As lemonlimelipstick said, it really helps if the animal you are looking for, say Whitney is a snooty, that you have no snooties in your town. c:

I'm doing this right now because Pietro left me... and all I'm getting is Uchi's. I'm not a fan of most of the new Uchi's xD I don't know who to even try getting... D:

Babycake thank you for writing me! I know I I'm late posting here, but everything was sorted out ^.^ so if you guys need any personal help with this, feel free to PT me anytime (:

You just reset with the spare character, and each time, generally, a new animal will spawn!

If you are getting the same animal no matter what, the animal is from streetpass, spotpass, or WiFi, and cannot be changed.

I'm not sure if it's just because I time travel, but when someone new is moving in, I skip to the next day at 5:58/59am. Then I do the process, but after one or two tries, I can't find the house anymore. When I skip to the next day as my mayor character, no one moves in and the process is repeated. It's a real inconvenience that the house only spawns on tries one or two. Anyone else have this problem?

Ginny100 it happens to me sometimes as well, as well as other people I'm sure. It really is totally random, but more times than not an animal always appears in the town, for me anyways. c:

Today, I TT'd to the next day at 5:56am. I started the day up on my second character then quickly saved and exited before the clock reached 6am. I then created a new character and I kept repeating this process of making a new character + checking the town for about 2 hours.

During the process, I found that when there is a camper in town, a plot will not appear. Same goes for the plot; a camper won't appear if there's a plot in town. Sometimes, both will not appear. It's weird and kind of annoying since it just makes the process longer until you reach your desired villager and/or plot. I'm still waiting until Zucker's plot appears. So far, I've had: Cube, Simon x3, Benjamin, Big Top, Beau, Erik and Crackle (Spork).

TL;DR: It happens to me too. When there's a plot, a camper will not appear and vice versa - as far as I know. It's quite annoying.

Honey_Gal that happens to me too and a few others. C: it is very annoying because like you said it just takes longer and longer getting someone you want.

I have found that sometimes an animal won't appear at all, a house plot won't appear at all, a camper wont appear at all, and I've also seen a camper and a house plot appear at both the same time. c: there doesn't seem to be a way of changing the luck either, its completely random.

I've gotten Zucker before a few times so hopefully he comes soon!

I have a question and I'm sorry if this has been answered already.
I just convinced one of my friends villagers to move to my town. I really want this villager, but I'm worried they'll move somewhere awful!
If I do this trick, will the villager change to someone else, or will the same villager move location?

@[/b]snappycg1996&Honey_Gal; thanks! that information really helps! I guess that means I'll just have to be more patient, then... I usually give up the third or fourth tries because I thought they weren't spawning anymore. xD

Zeke, if it is an animal from someone else's town, I am pretty sure if you use this trick, their house will just move location. This happened with me when Amelia was moving to my town from a friend's by accident, and I was confused as to why it was always her and not a different villager.

Ginny100 is absolutely correct! The villager will always spawn with this trick, every single time you reset in a different location. I was worried about this at first but others have confirmed it does work, and I recently did this with Skye in my town to get her in a good place. c: She chose an absolute horrible location at first. xD right in the middle of my only narrow walkthrough between the river and my wall. DX

Ginny100 You're welcome! I'm glad it helps you. I once reset four times and got no one at all. D: I'm not sure exactly how long it would last, or even if it would work, but I'm wondering if you make a new character with 8 animals and save it day by day, I wonder if you could keep 8 animals? Maybe that's how that one town I read about and visited only had one animal? :o

It does take time and can become tiring. 8D

I have a question. I used to have 10 villagers until Charlise moved out the other day. She was not the villager I got from the campsite (and not my 10th). My question is, will a new animal move in on their own, or do I have to make one move from the campsite again?

the only way to get a 10th villager is through someone elses town or campsite. if your 10th leaves then you're back down to one more wanting to leave.

I did this with walker but thankfully he moved in a perfect place I want gloria to move because shes blocking the entrance to the beach almost
