Right now Lottie is in town and she’s brought along a bunch of special items that you can earn by capturing creatures and completing her various requests.
We’ve got the low down on all the new items you can earn and the best ways to play during the event. Just take a look below and you’ll soon have everything you need.

Plant seeds, attract bats
During Lottie’s Gothic Rose Festival event, she wants you to capture some gothic bats and golden gothic bats. Don’t worry, it’s not for free, she’s got a bunch of rewards for you to earn.
To capture bats you’ll need to plant red gothic roses and purple gothic roses, with seeds you can earn from completing requests for villagers during the event.
You’ll need to plant the seeds, wait for them to grow, and capture the animals. We’ve got another guide about capturing creatures here, so take a look for even more info.
Capturing creatures will be weird at first - it’s a totally new mechanic for Animal Crossing - but it’ll quickly make sense. To speed up the process, you can earn flower seeds with a + in the name, which will grow almost instantly.
Completing tasks and goals
In return for capturing bats, Lottie has a whole bunch of rewards waiting for you, including some very limited furniture items.
It can be time consuming to complete all of the tasks - you’ll need 60 gothic bats, and 50 of the slightly rarer golden gothic bats in order to finish all the tasks. A tall order!
In order to get all of the bats, you’ll want to quickly plant as many gothic roses as possible - red for golden gothic bats, and purple for gothic bats - and grow them using flower food, or just playing the waiting game.
You’ll complete a bunch of interesting Timed Goals for planting and harvesting flowers during the event, too!
In addition to collecting bats, you can also trade the rare event flowers you grow for unique items. Well, a couple of unique items - the rest will be pretty familiar. Take a look below for the full list…
