I did not care for either of my starting villagers (Lyman and Tammy) in New Horizons, so I gladly let them move away at the first opportunity. In previous games, I was definitely more attached to most of the starting villagers that I had. If one of them ended up moving, it was probably a solemn event. Still trying to get one of my GC starters, Ursala, to move out of my town after all of these years.
Crossing animals since 2003.
I was happy to see Phoebe move out. I've convinced Sheldon to stay a couple of times, but he's starting to grate on me so I might not do so the next time he brings it up. It will just be a shame to be the only one left from the initial getaway package.
I have Boots & Katt as NH starters. Their houses are terrible but I’m keeping them. I like them both. I use to have a hard time finding villagers I liked in WW & CF. But then in NL I kept practically all the OGs through most of the 570 hours. Once they started giving me their picture over and over like x10 or more I let them go. If he hasn’t moved out during my inactivity, Del was an original in NL from day 1 release and I never let him move out all the way until I stopped playing in 2017.
