The Pill Bug is considered one of the easiest bugs to capture in the Animal Crossing series so far.


[edit] How to Catch

Pill Bugs are surprisingly easy to capture since they can only be found hiding underneath random rocks located throughout your Town. They can be drawn out by simply banging on the rock with your Shovel, from there all you must do is swipe at it with your Net. It's quite hard(if not impossible)to lose these bugs since they curl into a still ball for protection after your character approaches it.blahblahblahblah,,, IDK how many times u hit it..........

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Pill Bug:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught a pill bug! I bet that's a bitter pill for it to swallow. (That was really awful.)"

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"だんごむしを つかまえた! たべてはいけない!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a Pill bug! Roll up if you want... you're MINE!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a Pill Bug! Why don't you chill, bug?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Pill Bug in the bug menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Pill bugs are crustaceans, like shrimp or crabs. They breathe with gills, so they can survive under water.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Classified as crustaceans, these can survive in water by using gills.

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing(GCN)

"Tell me, [Your Player's Name], have you ever turned a pill bug over and examined its repellant underside? The legs...so many of them...jerking...wiggling...writhing...Blech! Abhorrent! Wretched little monsters!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I'm sure you've had this happen: your pill bug won't roll up for some reason... ...and it's only later you discover it's a wood louse! ...No? Never happen to you? Very well, I'm mad."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Indeed, when they're all rolled up in a ball, pill bugs seem harmless enough... But flip them over and... OH, THOSE LEGS! Absolutely repugnant. Thinking about how they wriggle and squirm has my feathers crawling! Foulness! Hold a moment. I do rather poorly with shiny, wriggly, wretched creatures like this one."

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Pill Bug species has existed for over 300 million years and are related to crustaceans. Regardless of this, they have evolved into dominant land-dwelling creatures while their water-based characteristics still remain. These creatures can lay over a hundred eggs at once.
