I've brought up 13 scallops so far today with no sign of Pascal. Are we sure he pops up everyday, or is he hit-and-miss? I know he won't come the first scallop everyday, but 13 seems excessive...

I've had a visit from Pascal each day since the update.

From my experience, he has shown up on the first scallop I find. Every other scallop afterwards will not bring him back. It could possibly also depend on where you're positioned when you harvest the scallop? I wonder if he can appear if you are at an odd angle with the shore above you.

I was also thinking it might depend on where I harvest the scallop. The last two days I was close to the border/net. I got him on the first scallop yesterday, but not until the 6th on the first day.

I've had Pascal each day since the update on my main character. Yesterday went swimming with all the alts and each one got Pascal, but then today I only felt like trying on one of the alts and got a scallop on him but didn't get Pascal.
I did get Pascal once where he popped up initially underwater where the net is (like under it, didn't have his head above water) and beyond the net a few times so I don't think where you are really matters.

Well, I'm at 17 scallops right now. If he's not triggered by 20, I'm quitting for the day, lol,

Pascal only shows up for the first scallop you find each day. After that, you're better off just selling them. I even tried carrying one that I had put in storage, but he only showed up when I got one from the ocean that day.

As someone might have already said, I think it depends where you find them, I don't always get him on the first find of the day, sometimes the second or third and I've noticed I've been nearer the netting when he does pop up!

I think it's not entirely tied to where you find them. Found my first scallop today right next to the net and no Pascal popped up.... I had the same issue yesterday with him not appearing despite finding numerous scallops near the net. Someone pointed out on another thread it might have to do with putting the Switch to sleep without fully closing the game so I'm gonna try that and see if it gets Pascal to spawn

EDIT: In case anyone asks, both days I hadn't gotten him to spawn at all, so it definitely wasn't a case of looking for him a second time

He most definitely isn't guaranteed to appear on the first scallop. For me, it's been 6th, 1st, none, 1st, 2nd. So, from now on, I'm just gonna continue harvesting till I have around 10, then give up.

Yeah.. it's hard to tell what triggers his spawn. For me it was 4th, 1st, 1st, none, 2nd (he appeared after I closed and started up the game again)....

Yeah, hopefully it works!! I think Pascal spawning might be like the issue with wetsuits not appearing in Nooks where it'll appear after you restart the game. Hopefully it gets patched in the next update

I've had Pascal every time I caught the first scallop. I'm wondering if those who were having an issue didn't save their games the day before and didn't close out the game?

It doesn't matter where you find them.

If he isn't showing up, exit the game completely and restart, that worked for me and my friend when we had the same issue.

I've had him on the first scallop every day so far (except for yesterday, when I didn't go swimming).  I always save and completely exit and close the game every day when I'm done playing, so that may be why I haven't had any issues.

My spouse did have him not appear one day, but he believes that his gate was still open, as I had just visited him.

Oh...and on a related note, I accidentally sold one of my mermaid recipes.   At least we can get him every day, so I'll be able to get my mermaid lamp soon enough.

Yeah, for me the day he didn't show up my gate was definitely closed. However, I never quit the game fully but I do always save and put the Switch to sleep on the opening screen, so I think that's the issue with him not showing up. It's not enough to save out of your session but you have to fully close the game and reopen it to get Pascal to spawn if he's not showing up

I think it's just random when he spawns on a scallop.  I've mostly gotten him on my 2nd scallop, and I always close the game down and put the Switch to sleep. The one time I had the issue, I believe me gate was open, so that was most likely the problem.

He will NOT come if your gate is open.


The closing the game out trick is just something to do if he hasn't shown up by the third scallop, as that resets everything. There's no need if you haven't had an issue getting him, it's just something to try if nothing else has worked.

I have read that he also doesn't show up if your inventory is full.  Which I guess would make sense...where would he put your new recipe/pearl.  I reckon that happened to me once because I was snorkeling for ages and picked up quite a few scallops but he never turned up

But if he takes a scallop, there would be room in your pocket for his gift.
