If you saw a shooting star, what would you wish for?
Peppy villager, Wild World

Wishy is the name given to an author of letters sent to the player after wishing on a shooting star. Wishy is often said to be a shooting star though this is unknown as Wishy is one of the few unseen characters in the Animal Crossing series.

Wishing upon a shooting star is done simply by pressing the A Button button when a shooting star goes overhead, usually during a Meteor Shower.

How to see Wishy[]

On a clear night without rain or snow, a shooting star may appear briefly in the sky, making a twinkling sound. Pressing the A Button button when not holding any tools will make the player wish upon the star. The star will twinkle brighter and louder when this is done successfully. However this action can only be performed if there are no tools equipped. The next day, the player will receive a letter signed "Wishy the Star" with a random gift attached to it. It will always be a spotlight item from Tom Nook's Store.

In some games, making a constellation will make it easier to see Wishy. When Celeste gives a date of when a constellation can be best seen, the chances of seeing Wishy are increased.
