What Are Rare Villagers?

No Such Thing As Rare Villagers

No Such Thing As Rare Villagers

There is no such thing as "rare" villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, the probability of encountering them in the mystery island tour and/or them visiting your campsite differs.

How Are Villagers On Mystery Islands Determined?

Even though there is no such thing as a truly "rare" villager, the probability of encountering each villager on a mystery island is different.

We've run a test to figure out the pattern of how new villagers on mystery islands are determined by using 162 Nook Miles Tickets.

What we found out is that all species groups, disregarding the difference in number of villagers belonging to each species, appear at around the same probability.

Conclusion: Which Villagers Are Rare?

In conclusion, the more villagers in the same species group, the lower chance you have of encountering a specific villager in that group. In other words, the game picks one species group first randomly, then it picks one villager in that species group randomly again.
