No I mean I've only had 3 visits so far

1: Where he's walking around, sells 1 painting
2: Where he's walking around, then invites you to his ship
3: Ordinary visit

So my personal experience doesn't de-confirm what ACCFDude said. However I haven't found anything on the internet so far which confirms the once a month visit. The closest I get is some random gameFAQs post.

^ I've had the exact same experience. Redd visited me again (for the third time) yesterday, which was a couple of days after his second visit. So I guess I'll wait and see when he next visits to see whether it's a month from yesterday.

Thanks so much for clarifying, and also for mentioning the apparent source of the "once a month" claim. Having looked it up, it's literally one reply in that thread that suggests it - and it's not even from that person's own experience, nor confirmation of any kind.

It sounds like there's a lot of speculation being bandied around as fact - another post in the very same GameFAQs thread suggests that it might be every two weeks, and other sites suggest that it's either every two weeks or entirely random.

For anyone interested, the GameFAQs thread where the once-per-month claim exists is here: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/248082-animal-crossing-new-horizons/78627202

In the interest of proof standards, here's the claim as stated there;
"Nope. I don’t know if it’s true but someone said they tt to see how often he comes and they said he didn’t come back for like a month :o"
There's no scientific method here - just one random person in a random GameFAQs thread pointing out, unsourced, that they saw someone who said that they time-travelled claim that Redd didn't return to their town for "like a month".

This is not confirmation that Redd visits once per month.

PennyGwin is right, and also this has been disproved all over now, with many people getting him randomly in rotation with other special visitors. Heck, even my friends have had him a few times already (AFTER the first 2 visits) without TTing.

Decided to do a little investigating of my own since OP won't give any evidence beyond 'confirmed by time travellers'. I TT'd on my Sister's island today, 1 day at a time, and took down notes of when Redd appears. It does seem OP's statement may be correct. He appeared initially on the 4th of May, and his next appearance wasn't until the 10th of June. I didn't do any more because frankly its just exhausting and it took me hours, so obviously this experience could just be an outlier. But in terms of some actual evidence of the once per month rule, this guide by Game8 mentions that moving to a new month can mess with Redd's appearances, which seems to indicate that Redd's visits are a fixed once per month visit. I may try and do some more TT'ing tomorrow if I have the patience to do so.

and just to further add some info on buying from Redd, was lucky to be able to test it out with some people:

- Much like celeste, you can only buy one painting per day even if you 'go to a different island' (in my case I brought in my own character to try and buy a painting on different dates, which didn't work)

- However it goes one step further, even if you then time travel that character, you still won't be able to buy from Redd on that same day.

- The Game8 guide I linked is correct in that, after receiving your items from Redd the next day, you can simply TT back to the day Redd was there and he will still be there but with a new collection. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to test whether TT'ing with a separate character will allow them to make further purchases.

To me, this confirms that Redd's visits are fixed and most likely limited to once a month.

Pikminsatellite - Thankyou so much for doing this! Proof is everything, especially when there's a danger that people will believe claims like this wholesale and mess with their game in ways that they don't enjoy as a result.

I don't do time-travelling, but I'll be taking real-time notes on my own island, too, until we see a definite confirmation find its way online via datamining.

It's May 4th, and I've gotten Redd on my island today. Lucky for me, he only had one real piece of art this time, the same as his second visit, so I won't have to jump through any hoops to get anything else!

Redd is not the only way to get the Art pieces though.

One of my vilagers gave me a genuine Glowing Painting a few days ago

Datamining has now been conducted that shows that Redd has the same chances of appearing as most other visiting NPCs.

The original source is the dataminer Ninji, whose information can be found here.

Ninji comes through once again!

Someone on reddit made a graphic of this and posted it. People were saying how Leif and Redd should be switched, considering you don't really need to buy bushes every week.

Agreed, even if Redd isn't strictly once a month, we're still only talking twice a month at best, 3 if you're super lucky I guess? I just had Redd make his first appearance this month on my non TT'ing island selling all fakes for the second time. Its just absurd lol.

It's May 20th and I've now gotten a second appearance from Redd this month, right in line with the datamining.

Isabelle made no mention of a suspicious ship in the morning announcements, and none of my neighbours have mentioned it, either, so it was a nice surprise.

Unless I missed the part; wouldn't it theoretically be possible to get Redd every week in a month? It didn't seem like you get him (or any other visitor) once and then they're screwed for the next week. It sounded like the chances just decrease. If the RNG landed on the right number each time? Obviously very low chance.
Just curious for the funsies.

He tends to show up like once a month for me and the last two times he was selling nothing but fakes.
