Pearls - How to Get
How To Find Pearls
|Bubbles||Floats straight up|
Pearls have a very small shadow size, and their bubbles don't move, floating up in a straight line. If you see bubbles like the above, chances are its a pearl!
Dive Underwater To Get Pearls
Just like all other Sea Creatures, Pearls can be found when swimming in the ocean. You'll see black shadows in the water below, so press Y to obtain them!
Pearls Are Quite Rare
As Pascal informs you when he gives you a recipe, Pearls are not a commonly found item. It will probably take you quite some time to collect these. Make sure you hold on to all your pearls, as you'll need them for DIY Recipes!
You Can Get Pearls On Mystery Islands
You can also get pearls by diving in the water of Mystery Islands. However, spawn rate of pearls on mystery islands is the same as your own island. It's also notable that Pascal won't appear over there, either.Learn More About Mystery Islands Here
Get From Pascal
Other than furniture recipes and mermaid clothes, Pascal can also trade you a Pearl for giving him a Scallop! Since they're rare, getting it through him is better once you get all the recipes.Check Out the Pascal Guide Here
Get Unlimited Pearls
After you get all 21 of Pascal's various rewards, you will start to only get Pearls from him!
Pearl Oysters Are Not Relevant
There was a hypothesis that perhaps having Pearl Oysters in your inventory would increase your chances of getting a Pearl. According to some testing we did, this doesn't seem to be the case! Pearl Oysters don't really have anything to do with Pearls in-game!
