I scanned Boris in as a villager from an RV card. Will he ever ping me to move out on his own? Or is the only way to move him out to move someone else in with a card?

RV and Amiibo villagers don't usually ping to move. It seems the only way they will is if all your villagers were invited through RV cards or Amiibo, and you have more than 8 of them. The best way to get him out would be to scan in another villager and boot him out.

Well, in my town, the WA villagers ask to move as often as the ones who moved in randomly or from the campsite.

Vivian asked me to move out shortly after I scanned her into the game. It might just take them awhile longer perhaps than a regular villager.

What I've learned is WA villagers who are not from Animal Crossing (Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda and Monster Hunter) will never ping you to move.

I have all bar Felyne (I cannot get into Monster Hunter) in my town. Not one of them has pinged me about moving at all, ever since the Squid Sisters and Inkwell moved into town about a year ago. I'm dead serious.

I scanned Boris a couple months ago, and have had a few villagers come & go since then. But I haven't had a full town, either, so I wasn't sure.

I have all of the Legend of Zelda characters in my town and thankfully, they never moved out at all.

I never want any of them to move out because I’m a Zelda fan as you can tell by the one room in my home.

So Maggie recently pinged to move. She's been in my town for about a year, along with Sprocket, Olive and Boris. I've moved on a few other RV card villagers by force, and for months the game was rotating between Nibbles, Alli and Cherry, the last remaining villagers from before the update.

I finally got the last of those 3 out, and spent quite some time speed-playing to get someone into the campsite (over 2 game weeks), and during that time, villagers from the campsite or normal cards would ping. Freckles moved in, and after a few more pings from normal villagers, Maggie pinged to move.

When the update first went live, a group of friends and I did some hardcore playing. Between us we had over a dozen towns. It's dwindled a lot since then, but there are still 4 towns that have RV villagers that get regular playing, and this is the first time between us that any RV villager has pinged to move.

You want Boris out fast, best use a card.

Also, the Amiibo characters really do seem entrenched, as one of the towns in my little group has 7 of them, and the game has been cycling out the 2-3 normal villagers. That town once had all 8 of the Amiibo villagers, but no one remembers how or why one was removed.

I don't mind Boris - he can stay until I want to buy something from his RV. I was more curious because I know a lot of people didn't get the WA cards so I thought, could they get a WA villager from another town? I figured they were less likely to move because Nintendo would want more people scanning. Or something to that effect, anyway.

Funny side note: When I posted this, I only had 8 villagers, with one pinged to move in a couple days. I just had a 9th move in yesterday and Tia has now decided against moving. The game read my mind!

Ha, that's why I booted out Gonzo months ago. Needed to restock ABDs quickly.

Sure, they can get RV villagers from other towns. The only reason Maggie and Boris are in my town is because someone who didn't have their cards wanted them. They weren't ready, which wasn't a biggie, since I can just force them into boxes with another card. But then that person suddenly disappeared.

If someone really wants an RV villager, you can just force them into boxes and have that person adopt.

Amiibo villagers cannot be adopted for sure, and I can't remember if the Sanrio ones can. I think not, but I'll need to double-check this later.

Good to know! I'm thinking about loading up my town with Snootys & Smugs for a while because I really want their PWP suggestions. That's what I like about being able to scan in who you want.

Sorry to bump, but I do have some more observations.

My town currently has:

RV card: Olive, Sprocket, Boris
regular card: Lopez, Bones, Sydney, Flo
campsite: Butch, Freckles, Hopper (newest)

It's been months since Hopper moved in, and for the past few months, the game's been flipping between Butch and Freckles pinging to move. It's been really noticeable in the past few weeks because I've been speed-playing, and over a dozen moving pings happened between these two. It's like when the game was rotating between my last original villagers.

It could just be a massive coincidence, but I think there's a safeguard that prevents animals that were scanned in from leaving, provided there are enough regular move-ins.

Isn't it also true that the newest villager to move in will never ask to move until they are no longer the newest villager?

Also, some villagers are just out to get you.
Hopper, a cranky villager who had nothing special about him, took forever to ask me to move. It was about 6 months to a year, I think.

Here's what I've seen in my two towns so far-

Animals scanned in with a card, if they're WA or regular, ask to move out ALOT less likely than the others. This makes sense if you are buying the cards for your dreamies and as dreamies, you want them to stay. In New Town I have 5 animals that have been scanned in, Claude, Sandy, Muffy, Pudge and Snake. I think I recall asking Claude to move out once but I said no. Claude was also the first one I scanned in. None of the other scanned in have asked yet.

Some tips to maybe get them to move out,
Just stop talking to them.
Be their BEST friends cause the friendly you are with a villager, the more likely they want to move out.
If you have multiple characters, have your NOT main talk to them once then don't talk to that villager again for another 3 or more days.
I haven't tested all if this yet with all of my scan ins yet, just Pudge.

Boris is still in my town because I'm lazy, lol. I'm going to pile on the smug this weekend, because I'm tired of not having a Stonehenge in my town.

#GCorpCrown: Yep, the newest will never ping to move until they're no longer the newest. It's why I highlighted Hopper as being the newest, because I assumed this was common knowledge. Well, you know what they say when you assume...

But you're right about some animals seeming to have some sort of vendetta against you. In my main town, long before the update, Lionel blocked my main bridge for over 9 months. So many animals came and went, but he just would. not. leave. I tried every trick people recommended, including what you've listed, but he only eventually left when I just continued to play normally. There was much celebration when he finally did!

This has got me thinking... if a character you scanned in (be it WA, Sanrio, Zelda, whatever) moves out, can't you just keep scanning them back in?
