While swimming and catching scallops, you could meet the friendly sea otter, Pascal. Pascal loves scallops and he'll be willing to trade his Mermaid-themed DIY recipes for any scallops you catch!
Pascal will sometimes appear when you catch a scallop. Generally, he will appear when you find the first scallop of the day, although he sometimes comes on a later catch.
It seems as though Pascal will only show up to give you a present once per day. Our team attempted finding several scallops on the same day, but could only meet with Pascal once.
If you answer “No” when Pascal asks you for your scallop, you can get him to show up again on the second or third time finding one that day. This means that you can give your first scallop to the museum before giving the next one to Pascal.
Note: It does seem that there is a degree of RNG in him appearing though.
|Enlarge Trade with Pascal||Craft the DIY Recipe!|
After appearing, Pascal will ask you for the Scallop you found. If you agree to trade, he will give you one of his Mermaid DIY recipes or a Mermaid-themed item, so let's collect the needed materials materials and craft the Mermaid series!
Swim, catch Scallops, and trade with Pascal every chance you get to complete your Mermaid Series Furniture collection!
Pearls are required to craft Mermaid items. They can be found on the ocean floor by diving, although they are very rare.
Pascal also offers to give you Pearls in exchange for Scallops.

As seen above, Pascal will sometimes give you special Mermaid clothes in addition to DIY recipes or Pearls.
If Pascal isn't showing up, it is likely that your pockets are full. Before going out to look for scallops, empty up some space in your inventory!
It would appear that Pascal will not show up in the same day after giving him a scallop once already. In order to meet him again, you'll either need to wait, or change your date settings.
It seems like Pascal won't appear if your gates are open, so try closing them before diving back in!
There does seem to be an element of luck to getting Pascal to appear. Sometimes, it has taken several tries to get the otter ti appear, even with all of the above requirements met, so you might have to try keep trying, making sure to empty your inventory when it gets too full.
If Pascal is still not showing up, make sure that you have updated your system to the latest version. From the title screen, you should have Ver. 1.3.0 or higher showing. You won't be able to buy a Wet Suit or dive without this version, meaning you also won't be able to meet Pascal!
|First Appearance||Animal Crossing: Wild World|
Every time you give a scallop to Pascal, he will leave you with a philosophical line before disappearing into the sea.
