Gulliver’s Port Resort started on June 30, 2020, and ended on July 4, 2020. The event started like all the other events do. Players had to collect special seeds, plant them in their garden, and hope that rare creatures appeared.

Four screenshots of a talking seagull named Gulliver. He is talking to my Pocket Camp character.

Gulliver: Ahoy there! The name’s Gulliver.

Gulliver: Maybe you knew that. Maybe we’ve met. You land-legs all look alike to me. I get hit on the head a lot!

Gulliver: Anyway, maybe you know I do exports. And I’m known to rustle up some goodies from time to time.

Gulliver: Well, it so happens I got my talons on something unbelievable in my last haul – paper-petal seeds!

So far, every time an animal friend invites themselves to my campsite, it is because they want something from me. Gulliver usually can be found at Sunburst Island (the one with the bugs). He has his own boat, which he sends to other islands to retrieve things.

The player must fill up the boat with items before Gulliver can send it off. Some time later, the boat returns with souvenirs. Each one will cost some Leaf Tickets.

Gulliver: These things take me back. I’ve laid eyes on many a scintillating flower in my travels…

Gulliver: Yep. Journeying harbor to harbor, seeing the flowers lined up out of port like an array of cannons…

Gulliver: Fish-flakes! All that nautical nostalgia’s sailed me right into a brilliant idea!

Gulliver: Let’s recreate the maritime magic of a port resort right here and now!

Gulliver: You ever heard of dailycrabs? Rare hermit crabs with shells as precious as undersea treasure.

Gulliver: They gather around paper-petals, so we wanna track some down… and reel ’em in! Er, with a bug net!

Gulliver: Their shells’ll be real nice for our post-resort experience. Sardines! I’ve got some decor ideas already!

Gulliver: So, do you know all about how to go about catching these dallycrabs?

The screenshots above pretty much show everything you need to know about how this part of the event works. Gather flower seeds by going around and giving things to animal friends (including those in your campsite). Plant the seeds in your garden. Water them when needed (unless a friend got to it already). Collect the rare creatures. Harvest flowers. Repeat.

Here are the rewards I earned for collecting orange and pink dallycrabs:

Once you collect up (or craft) certain items that are related to a limited-time event, you can use them to take a class. The concept is a little wonky, but it does give you some good rewards if you successfully complete it.

The first class related to Gulliver’s Port Resort event is the one shown above. I had collected the seaside-vacation shirt, and the seaside-vacation juice A. To get the little pot of pink paper-petals, you have to get in your garden and exchange some of those flowers for ones inside a flower pot.

Eventually, the game introduces new paper-petal flowers. The new ones are yellow instead of pink. They attract different colored dallycrabs.

Here is what the third – and final – Post Resort class. The game gives players duplicate items as prizes. The player might need to make use of them in the classes.

Gulliver is laughing. Three other Pocket Camp friends are using different items in the Post Resort.

After the player finishes all the tasks, there is a short scene that appears.

Gulliver says goodbye.

Gulliver: Ahoy there, friend. I figure it’s time I weighed anchor and got back to my usual work.

Gulliver: Well, shuck my clams! You’ve still got dallycrabs and paper-petals to give away? I’ll take them, of course.

Gulliver: You’ll find a reward waiting in your mailbox. Check for it later!

Gulliver: See you around!
