You can wear a paper bag in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and now I have questions

Previews of Animal Crossing: New Horizons have started coming out in early March, and while the internet is busy cataloging gameplay changes, I am sitting here already thinking of the ways I’m going to be a total nightmare to my villagers.

So now there’s an item that allows you to wear a paper bag on your head, which is cool, but I have a pressing question. If I give this to a villager as a gift, are they capable of wearing it? Can I force them — particularly, my mortal enemy who is clogging up my island with their unwanted presence — to wear the paper bag in an effort to make them leave?

Follow-up question, if the tombstone is an item I can place outside as a decoration now, can I convince my unwanted villager that they are living in a haunted cemetery that they must vacate immediately? What if I surround that cemetery with those ultra realistic scorpions, would that be convincing?

I’m also curious … can I give my villagers beards now? I don’t have any nefarious plans for this, I just think it would be nice for some of them to have.

Polygon dot com will investigate. Stay tuned.

Pokémon Go Team Rocket Take-over event guide: start times and bonuses

Team Rocket is taking over Pokémon Go starting on March 6 until March 9.

Shiny Skorupi will be making its debut, alongside an increased spawn rate to dark- and poison-type Pokémon. Absol will also be spawning in the wild, instead of only coming from eggs.

On March 7, from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. in your local time, a global take-over will occur, with Team Rocket taking over tons of PokéStops. The three leaders, as well as Giovanni, will be appearing more frequently as well, so this is a good chance to complete any of the Team Rocket Special Research. Shadow Pokémon taken from the leaders will also have a chance to appear Shiny. Taking down Team Rocket members during this time period will also reward double Stardust, so make sure you use a Star Piece.

During that specific time period, you’ll also be able to use Charge TMs to change the Shadow Pokémon’s charge move from Frustration into something else. However, the move will still be replaced with Return if you purify it, so use your TMs wisely.
