Ignore Them Continuously

Ignore Them Continuously

One of the easiest ways to make a villager leave is to ignore them for continuous days. Speak to them when they first arrive on the island then never interact with them again until they finally leave. This may take a week or so before they leave.

Hit Them With Net Or Tools

Hit Them With Net Or Tools

Another way to make villagers leave is to hit them with the bug catching net or tools you have. Harassing them will piss them off and may increase chances of them leaving.

Decline Their Requests

Villagers will sometimes have tasks or requests that they want you to complete. Turning them down will also increase their chance of leaving the island permanently.

Complain To Isabelle

Complain To Isabelle

When making the Resident Services bigger, Isabelle arrives on the island and Resident Services has been upgraded, you can speak with her about the island environment. You can "discuss a resident" with her for several times to increase their chance of leaving.

Wait For Them To Leave

Some villagers will have enough of the island and will eventually want to leave. When you talk to them, they may speak of going somewhere new and you can encourage them to leave the island when the conversation prompts you.

Why Make Villagers Leave?

Make Space For New Villagers

Make Space For New Villagers

Making villagers leave will create space for new villagers to come and live on your island. If there's a particular villager you don't like, you can replace them by making them leave.

Select Villagers On The Island

Select Villagers On The Island

When you have space on the island, you can talk to Tom Nook and he'll provide you with applications of those who want to live there. This makes it easier to personally select the villagers you'll live with in your island paradise.

Also, there ISN'T an application selection in-game. That was just a misunderstanding of what Nook's quote referred to, and the only selection processes are through tours and the campsite. As for forcing a villager out, the only proven method in this "guide" is campsite/amiibo.

Still waiting for that source on Isabelle. It's also debatable if abusing a villager has EVER worked in moving them out; players have been doing that for almost 20 years with no consistent results. Did it suddenly change in NH?

Do you have a source on complaining to Isabelle actually working? Because complaints never affected moving chances in previous games. All they ever did was reset an animal to their default appearance and catchphrase, as a fix in case another player made it obscene.
