How To See Wishy
On a night without rain or snow, a shooting star may appear briefly in the sky, making a twinkling sound. When it appears on screen, press the A button and if quick enough, the player will put their hands together in a wishing pose while the star sparkles. The next day, the player will receive a letter signed Wishy the Star with a random gift attached to it. It will always be a spotlight item from Tom Nook's Store.
Note: It only works when the player is not holding any kind of equipment e.g. Tools, Umbrellas, etc.
The Meteor Shower is an event that occasionally happens. During a meteor shower night, lots of shooting stars will be seen at the same time and it is a good time to see Wishy. A message will be posted on the Bulletin Board notifying the arrival of a meteor shower. This doesn't happen in Animal Crossing: Wild World.
