Keep talking to him!

How to Repeat (Farm) Gulliver Events

Farming Gulliver's Event

Fastest Way to get the Golden Shovel
  1. Find a day where Gulliver appears.
  2. Gather the Communicator Parts and help Gulliver.
  3. Save and close the game, change the date to next day.
  4. Get Gulliver's letter, save and quit.
  5. Return the date and time to find Gulliver again.
  6. Repeat from step 2.

1. Find a day where Gulliver appears

Days Gulliver Appear ・2020/01/03

Note: These are the days we came across Gulliver.

First you have to find a date where Gulliver appears. It seems like the date Gulliver appears might be different for Southern and Northern Hemispehere. Our first 2 dates are based from gameplays on the Southern Hemispehere and the last is based on gameplay from the Northern Hemisphere.

2. Gather the Communicator Parts and help Gulliver

Like when you come across him normally, talk to him and find his communicator parts to clear his event. If the time goes past 5:00 AM, Gulliver will disappear and you'll become unable to clear the event, so try to make sure you have plenty of time when changing the dates.

3. Save and close the game, change the date to next day

After you've given Gulliver the communicator parts, make sure to save and close the game, then change the date to the next day.

4. Get Gulliver's letter, save and quit

After changing the date, open the game once more to find Gulliver's letter in your mail box. Once you've received the letter and the present, save and close the game again.

5. Return the date and time to find Gulliver again

After closing the game again, go back to the Switch settings and change the date back to the day your found Gulliver (the day before). He will appear once again and you can do his event over from the beginning. Repeating these steps is the fastest way to farm Gulliver's events.
