How to get Raymond?

Following are some methods through which you can get Raymond:

Method #1 – Finding him randomly on your campsite

Villagers randomly visit your campsite, and you can convince them to stay forever. On one of your lucky days, Isabelle might announce that Raymond is here. After this, it will be your duty to convince him to stay since he’ll initially be there for just a day.

Method#2 -Finding him on a Mystery Island

Firstly, have less than ten villagers since you can only have ten villagers living at your campsite. Secondly, collect lots of Nook Miles and buy a ticket through them to a mysterious island. Visit the mysterious island and look around for Raymond. This method is purely based on luck. You may or may not find Raymond on your first visit. This means that one should keep trying this method by visiting mystery islands in search of this smug cat. Indeed, he will be present at one of the islands. Once you find him, talk to him and convince him to move in at your campsite.

Method #3 -Trading through a friend

This method is quite simple but can be brought to life only with the help of a New Horizons friend. If your friend has Raymond staying at their campsite, they can disregard him and act indifferent towards him. This will significantly reduce his moral, and he will feel unwanted. When this happens, a cloud will appear over his head, indicating that he is thinking of leaving. It shall be your friend’s duty to tell you when this happens as it would be the ideal moment for you to step in and get what you want. All you will have to do is go and speak to Raymond to show him why he should move in at your campsite.

Method #4 -Trading through Nookazon

Nookazon is a place where you spend bells and get whatever you want in Animal Crossing. However, Nookazon is very pricy and getting Raymond through this method would cost you a lot.
