Name in other languages
Pelly is a pelican in the Animal Crossing series who works at the post office and town hall. Her name likely derives from her species. She works during the day, while her sister, Phyllis, works at night. In Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, she works at the post office, while in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, she works at the town hall and also announces events.
Pelly is a white pelican, just like Pete, another pelican. She has a large tuft of hair with four leaf-shaped hair strands. Her oval-shaped eyes are black with each one eyelash sticking out of each eye. Her beak and legs are orange. Her beak's upper part is also her nose with brownish-pink linings and dark-purple insides. Her round cheeks are pink with light-pink linings. Her inner mouth is dark-purple. She wears a purple dress with a reddish-pink vest and big white puffy sleeves, and a large white ribbon.
Unlike her sister, Phyllis, Pelly is cheerful and appears to enjoy her work.
In Animal Crossing
Pelly can be found from 7 AM to 7 PM in the post office in Animal Crossing. She is the daytime clerk. The player can talk to her to send and save letters to other villagers. In other towns, the player can talk to her to send letters to villagers in that town. She is in love with Pete but is too shy to mention it to him. Unlike her sister Phyllis, Pelly is always kind to the player.
In Wild World
Pelly has the same role in Animal Crossing: Wild World as she did in Animal Crossing, where she will send and save letters for the player, except she now works from 10 AM to 10 PM. She now lets the player edit the Town Tune. Pelly has a secret crush on Pete, the mail worker. She will sometimes sigh about Pete, and she may tell the player her story. She writes on the town bulletin board about happenings, birthdays, and her own anonymous thoughts. She can be found enjoying coffee in The Roost an hour before her shift on random days. The player can get Pelly upset; after the player shoots Pete from the sky and becomes friends with him, Pelly will give the player a "talk."
Pelly's Pic can be obtained after the player saves 100,000,000 Bells in the bank account. The picture quote is "Always remember the Boondoxians." Pelly has an ongoing job to better the Boondoxians, poor, inept villagers in a town.
In City Folk
Pelly still works the same shift at the town hall in Animal Crossing: City Folk. However, she can now fix problems for the player, such as the chance the player is locked out of their own house or if there is a problem with the player's villagers' clothes or catchphrases. She does not handle banking anymore, as that is now part of the ABD (Automatic Bell Dispenser). Her writing on the bulletin board remains, and she still has a crush on Pete.
Pelly can be seen in the Roost sometimes before her shift in the town hall. She can be found from 6:00 AM to 6:59 AM, waiting for her shift. Pelly will often say that Phyllis is not as mean as she looks.
In New Leaf
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pelly once again works at the post office, which is now located on Main Street, separate from the town hall. As in the previous games, she works in the early hours of the day, and she retains her cheery mood. However, unlike past entries in the series, she no longer announces special events and daybreak, giving the task to Isabelle instead.
In New Horizons
Pelly was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the 2.0 Free Update. Although Pelly does not have a specific role in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the player can invite her for coffee at The Roost via her amiibo. Pelly's poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting her to Photopia via her amiibo.
In Pocket Camp
Pelly appears in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp as the host of the garden event Pelly's Flight of Passion, in which the player must plant Bleeding Hearts in order to attract heartbeetles. If the player catches a certain amount, Pelly will reward them with gifts.
In Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori
Pelly appears in 🎬 Gekijōban Doubutsu no Mori, where she serves as a supporting character. She helped Ai when she first came to Animal Village. She can also be seen stopping Tortimer from surfing in the summer and looking at Gulliver's crashed U.F.O. behind a tree with Phyllis.
