How to Find Jimmy in Dinkum

Want to know how you can find Jimmy in Dinkum?

Dinkum is an animal crossing-inspired game that strikes a good balance between farming simulation and survival. In the game, players can build their own homes, explore the wilderness, and grow various crops on their farms. 

Besides, players will also encounter various NPCs in the game, which can, later on, become permanent residents on the island. 

If you think Fletch and John are the only NPCs you’ll have to deal with, you’re wrong. 

The Shady Visitor is one of the characters that you may have heard a lot about, especially during the game’s loading screen. If you’re wondering where he might be, you have come to the right place. 

In this guide, we will show you how you can find Jimmy in Dinkum. 

Let’s get right into it!

Finding Jimmy

Jimmy or the Shady Visitor is a merchant that rarely appears on the map, and finding him can be challenging in itself. One interesting thing to note about him is that he will sell you items with Permit Points and not Dinks. 

Due to this, you can expect some rare items in his shop, given how valuable permit points are in the game.

To get the Shady Visitor to spawn on your island, you will need to deposit at least a million Dinks in your bank. A question mark should show up on your map, which indicates the current location of Jimmy on the island. 

However, Jimmy will only visit your island on a boat, and for the most part, he’ll be located near bodies of water.

Due to this, we strongly suggest that you use a Jetski or a Row Boat to reach his location. Usually, it will be raining when he visits your island, and sometimes you will also receive a mail telling you about the Shady Visitor. 

Items You Can Get

As we have mentioned, the Shady Visitor doesn’t offer regular items and will require permit points to purchase. 

Here are some of them: 

  • Boom Box (6,000 Permit Points)
  • Gold Paint (1,000 Permit Points)
  • Golden Bush Devil Statue (720 Permit Points)
  • Red Hang Glider (1,600 Permit Points)
  • Gold Pocket Watch (20,000 Permit Points)

Before visiting Jimmy, we suggest that you have at least 21,600 Permit Points to get the Gold Pocket Watch and the Red Hang Gilder since they are some of the best items that are worth your Permit Points.

The Gold Pocket Watch can increase the speed of time on the island, and you can make it up to 10 times faster. On the other hand, the Red Hang Glider allows you to travel easily from one location to another. 

If you don’t have interest in the items Jimmy has to offer, you can also sell items from your inventory for some sweet bonus. However, he will only purchase items in bulk (50 or more). 

He’ll offer you 50% more Dinks for your items compared to selling them to Joh. For instance, 50 Ear Hats will net you 62,625 Dinks instead of 41,750 Dinks from John.
