Summer may be winding down, but there’s plenty going on in Animal Crossing! I still had to catch the Giant Petaltail and Jellyfish this month. As I explained in my previous entry, I recently chopped down ALL the trees, and dug up and hid my flowers. I did this to give rare bugs a better chance of appearing more often, as well as to give myself a better chance at actually chasing them.
It seems to have paid off already! I got my tarantula the other night, and then yesterday while playing at around 6:15 pm:
I think I got really lucky with this catch. I noticed it zooming West from the Town Hall… which meant there wasn’t much space for him to get far away from me. I chased it to the wall, as you can see. Then the GP had to turn south to try and escape me, so during it’s slight pause I swiped my net and snagged it. What a relief, I caught it without having to destroy the grass much at all!
This basically means that I can start reconstructing Shaolin again. Yay! I think I will wait until next week. I will have my gate open TOMORROW (Sunday!) starting at 9pm for the Fireworks Show. Leave a comment if you’re planning on coming! Or send me an email. Or whatever, be mean and don’t come! 😦 lol
Today is the 15th. That means “mid-August,” which is the only time that Jellyfish can be caught. Not only that, but apparently August 15th is DLC Day – all three major regions received DLC today! USA, EU and JP! I haven’t managed to take a trip to the UK yet (hopefully soon!) but I did receive the USA DLC, which is a “Hopscotch Floor.” I placed it in my room… and was a little disappointed. But I think it would probably match the Chainlink Fence wallpaper pretty well. The JP DLC is called the “Eggplant Cow.” Obviously, I went to Japan to pick it up for myself and Vella.
Chokomaru had built himself a cool throne room. You can see the Eggplant Cow on the table, next to the crown. I tried to ask Chokomaru what the Eggplant Cow is for, and he couldn’t explain. I asked if it was for kids and he said no. Soooo I’m at a loss lol! His throne room looks awesome. I didn’t realize he was THAT rich! lol Anyone who has 12 thrones and a royal crown in their room has GOT to be loaded.
I’m going to be setting up a throne room in Dan’s house soon. He actually REQUESTED it. Shocking! Anyway, back to the story…
After checking out the new throne room, we set off for the beach. I needed to catch the Jellyfish! I wasn’t sure how small the shadow was supposed to be. I saw a tiny shadow, but it was only a clownfish. Then I tried a shadow that looked like it would be a horse mackerel. But instead, a jellyfish came out! Hooray!
So it was a VERY productive morning. Today is now the Bug Off and I’m going to see if I can submit one of my scorpions. I might add to this post later today if anything exciting happens.
