Fish Up Eggs From 9am ~ 4pm


If you are looking for an efficient way to fish up Water eggs, our recommendation is to go fishing between 9am to 4pm. In the Northern Hemisphere, there are no fish with a medium-sized shadow in the river during this time, so you can be sure that all such shadows are Water Eggs!

Exchange Unwanted Egg On April 12th


On April 12th only, you'll be able to exchange 3 unwanted eggs of same type for one different type egg of your choice. Gather eggs that are easy to find as much as possible and exchange them on April 12th.

I have been playing all day. I just need 1 more bunny day DIY and I am not finding it AT ALL! Seriously. HOURS knocking down balloons and searching for bottles. Am I out of luck? I need the bunny back pack.

Finally...Got all the items

(Lotad) I found it in a balloon.

I started the bunny day event on the 12th, connecting to the internet after I’d played that morning, and so didn’t get the bed recipe in the mail. I’ve found all the other recipes- will the bed be in a balloon too, or am I screwed?
