Animal Crossing New Horizons is one of the most popular games available right now thanks to lockdown as well as because it’s just extremely addictive and wholesome. However, while it’s uniting 11 million people during these difficult times, there is also a very disturbing underbelly to all the cuteness where people are trading animals for bells. One of the most popular villagers on social media that people desperately want and love is Raymond and here you’ll discover how to get him to join your island as a villager.

There are dozens of cute animals you can get to join your island as a villager in Animal Crossing New Horizons and you can even find lists that rank them in regard to which are the best. Most of these villagers can be recruited by finding them on a mystery island and then sweet talking them into joining your paradise or hellish horror movie depending on how you’ve played the game (there are some real sickos about).

However, while there are dozens of cute villagers to coax into joining your land, one of the most popular on social media right now is Raymond. And below you’ll discover how you can get him to join your island.

How to get Raymond in Animal Crossing New Horizons to join your island

You can get Raymond in Animal Crossing New Horizons to join your island as a villager by luckily finding him on a mystery island:

  • Ensure that you do not have ten villagers
  • Buy a Nook Miles ticket and visit a mystery island
  • Keep visiting mystery islands until you come across the grey feline Raymond
  • Speak to him and ask him to join your island as a villager

Unfortunately, the above method is completely random and you’ll need to keep buying Nook Miles tickets in order for it to eventually (possibly) work.

If you’re extremely lucky you can find Raymond just dilly-dallying on your island as a visitor in which you’ll then be able to ask him to make his visit a permanent one. However, the odds of this happening are slim.

How to trade for Raymond in Animal Crossing New Horizons

You can trade for Raymond in Animal Crossing New Horizons by way of a friend or on Nookazon.

If you wish to trade with an Animal Crossing New Horizons friend, they can get Raymond to join your island by ignoring and disregarding him like he’s the sole ginger kid in a family of brunettes.

Once your desired villager becomes depressed and full of anxiety, a cloud should appear above their head which should indicate that they feel unwanted and are thinking about leaving.

Your friend should tell you when this cloud appears so you can then visit their island to become Raymond’s knight in shining armour by offering him an escape from where he’s not wanted.

Another way to trade for Raymond is on Nookazon where you can spend bells. However, the prices are absolutely bonkers with the villager costing 1,000,000.

And, if you think that is obscene, just a photo costs 990,000 meanwhile a poster costs 100,000.
