Animal Crossing Calling Cards and Request Tickets in Pocket Camp explained

How to increase those Friendships faster in Animal Crossing on mobile.

Animal Crossing Calling Cards and Request Tickets are two consumables in Pocket Camp that allow you to interact with your fellow villagers more than usual.

Earned primarily from Timed Goals and Stretch Goals, these items can be used when your villager isn't around or currently available, giving you more of an opportunity to raise your Friendship levels - in turn getting you more rewards faster.

If you're interested in other Animal Crossing starter guides, we can explain how to give kudos, how to change appearance and clothing, plus troubleshooting Pocket Camp error codes.

Animal Crossing Request Tickets explained

Fulfilling Requests is one of the core activities you can do with a fellow villager, and one of the best ways to increase your Friendship level.

Each Friendship level gives you new rewards - including the chance at exclusive clothing, as well as regular consumables such as Bells and crafting materials - and the opportunity to invite them to your camp.


Requests are essentially fetch quests, tasking you with finding the required amount of fruit, bugs or fish. They are fairly simple to complete, and an easy activity to get on with while you wait for other timers to tick down.


However, you can only do so many Requests for a particular animal before they become "content" for a period of time.

At this point, you can either wait, or approach them again and ask 'What do you want?', where you'll be offered to spend a Request Ticket. For each ticket you use, you'll get three more requests while they are still in the area.

You get Request Tickets primarily from Stretch Goals such as the following:

  • Chat with one of the animals visiting a recreation spot (6x Request Tickets)

You can also get them elsewhere, such as levelling up your villager. If you have ran out of Request Tickets, then you can spend Leaf Tickets (the game's premium currency) in its place - so be sure to use them sparingly.

It's worth noting if an animal is in your campsite, then you cannot use a Request Ticket.

Animal Crossing Calling Cards explained

While Request Tickets allow you to get more Requests out of a villager, Calling Cards are used to summon a villager who isn't around.

If a villager hasn't been invited to your camp, then they will be rotated in and out of the various areas on the map.

If you want to see a villager while they are out of rotation, then press the Contacts menu option at the bottom of the screen, then select the animal, then Call at the bottom of the screen.


This will ask you to use a Calling Card, bringing that animal over to that location for the next three hours. As with Request Tickets, if you run out, you can use premium currency Leaf Tickets instead.

As also with Request Tickets, Calling Cards come primarily from Stretch Goals, such as:

  • Complete a request for an animal (3x Calling Cards)

It's worth noting if an animal is in your camp or in rotation, you cannot use a Request Ticket - you simply visit them instead.
