Fruit Party with Katie

Katie has come to visit your Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Campground, but she's here on a mission. She wants to collect Appleflitters (Apple-shaped butterflies). She needs your help to collect as many as possible. Fruit Party with Katie runs from May 3 - May 13, so you don't have a whole lot of time to get through the entire event.

The second wave of Fruit Party with Katie has begun. It runs from May 8 - 13. You've only got five days to collect the second-wave furniture and clothing items, so you'd better get going!

Here's everything you need to know about how to catch Appleflitters and earn all of Katie's special Campsite decorations and clothing items.

The basics

The goal is to catch as many Appleflitters as possible. You'll earn rewards for catching a certain number for each task. For example, once you've completed the first Appleflitter task, you'll get a pair of Watermelon Shorts you can wear.

To catch an Appleflitter in your garden, plant seasonal strawberry seeds. You can buy green strawberry seeds from Lloid and you can earn red and pink (as well as green) seeds by completing requests.

You'll also earn rewards for sharing Appleflitter with friends. Visit a friend's garden and leave an Appleflitter on a flower (hint: It doesn't have to be a strawberry) for your friend. Most of the time (but not every time), Katie will reward you with seeds whenever you share.

You'll also earn seeds from completing tasks around the campground. So, be sure to continue your regular camper quests to earn those extra seeds.

The event takes place in two waves with four different types of strawberries and Appleflitter and four different runs of quests.

Wave 1: Appleflitters and Green Appleflitters

The first wave of Fruit Party with Katie starts on May 4 and runs until the end of the event on May 13. During this time, you'll be able to collect Appleflitters and Green Appleflitters from seasonal green and red strawberries. Below are the tasks and rewards for the first wave.

Important note: You can't keep Appleflitters after the event ends, so don't try to stock up. Share Appleflitters with friends as often as possible and trade stocks of strawberries to Lloid in exchange for flower beds and crafting materials.

Plant and harvest regularly

Appleflitters spawn randomly on strawberries. If you plant 10 strawberries, for example, you might only spawn five or six Appleflitters.

Appleflitters will only be attracted to a freshly bloomed strawberry. It won't leave once bloomed — you can take your time trying to catch it, but new Appleflitters will not spawn on an existing strawberry.

If you don't see an Appleflitters on a new bloom, you'll never see one (unless a friend drops one for you). Harvest it and plant a new one. There is almost never a reason to leave a strawberry unharvested in your garden. Almost never...

Leave a couple of un-harvested strawberries behind so your friends can share Appleflitters with you — maybe just five. If you harvest everything, your garden won't have any sharable blooms for three hours. This is important for both you and your friends. You get additional Appleflitters to meet your event goals and your friends get seeds they can plant. Do everyone a favor and leave a few strawberries un-harvested in your garden.

You can see whether an Appleflitters in your garden is from a friend by checking the Visitors section of your Friend list. If Penny left you an Appleflitters, it'll appear under her name. I always check the Visitors list first and repay friends for leaving me Appleflitters by doing the same.

You can also see if your friends' strawberries have room for Appleflitters sharing by taping their name in the Friends list. If there is room for your Appleflitters, it'll show "Sharing: [x number] Ready" next to their name. This makes it easier at a glance to know who to visit now and who to check back with later.

Stop hoarding your Appleflitters, give them away!

Share your Appleflitters with friends. Hoarding them does you no good. Give them to friends in order to earn more seeds and friend powder from Katie. You'll get decorations and clothes from Katie for the Appleflitters you catch, but you don't have to keep them in your inventory.

Your progress is tallied in the Event section of your garden. When you give Appleflitters away, the total doesn't drop. They also disappear from your inventory after the event ends, so keeping them to yourself doesn't do anyone any good.

When you drop off Appleflitters to your friends, Katie will give you rare seeds that you can take back to your garden to plant. she'll reward you with about a 70% return on your friendly gesture. This isn't exact, however. Sometimes, she doesn't give you any.

Pro Tip: You can share Appleflitters with friends on their non-rare plants, too. Help friends out that haven't planted any strawberries yet!

Set a timer to check your garden

Though you should be able to get all of Katie's decorations fairly easily with regular gameplay, you don't want to miss out on any opportunities to water and harvest your plants in a timely manner. To make sure you're always on the right track, set a timer for every three hours. You don't have to run through the entire campground's requests, but you can make sure to collect those strawberries and replant as soon as possible.

Don't ask for Lloid's help until the second wave hits

Asking for Lloid's help will guarantee that you'll catch an Appleflitters from the strawberry, but it comes at a hefty price (10 Leaf Tickets for each one). Based on the last garden event, you won't need his help catching Appleflitters from the first wave. There's plenty of time for them.

The second wave, however, is shorter and you're still working with seeds from the first wave. So you're not getting as many pink strawberry seeds as you need, added to the fact that silver and gold Appleflitters spawn, and are catchable, at a much lower rate.

Save your Leaf Tickets for Wave 2. I rarely have to spend any Leaf Tickets in the Garden events, but when I do, it's usually in the second wave, trying to reach those last few goals.

Plant a garden full of strrawberries before bed

If you plant a garden full of strrawberries before you go to bed, you'll wake up in the morning with a fresh set of strawberries and Appleflitters.

Planting strawberries that bloom overnight will also help your friends that live across the globe. While you're sleeping, they're playing, and they'd love to drop off an Appleflitters or two in your garden.

Hoard your strawberries!

You can trade harvested strawberries to Lloid for flower boxes and crafting materials. Even if you've collected all of the Appleflitters you need for the event, keep planting so you can harvest strawberries and exchange them for much-needed crafting materials.

I also recommend trading as many strawberries as possible for essences as many times as you can, since those items are hard to come by in the game and are expensive to replace with Leaf Tickets if you want to craft something when you don't have enough materials.

Once the event ends, your strawberries will stay in your inventory, where you can give them to animals that request special items during tasks. So don't go selling off unused strawberries. Keep them in your inventory.
