Also, before you go about catching one, make sure the new bugs are available for you. This is April through September in the Northern Hemisphere and October through March in the Southern Hemisphere. Once you catch these bugs, you’ll get to decide to either donate the specimen to Blathers and his museum or sell it to Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny for 2,000 bells.
