I've just read about being able to kick villagers off your island via not talking to them for a few days, waiting until they walk around with a dark cloud over their head, then finally talking to them and, when given the choice, ask them to leave.

If the option is given say to ask a villager to leave, can that villager still be encountered through Mystery Islands and invited to the island again? Or is it a permanent and one-time decision?

I asked a villager to leave and on my second mystery island I ran into them. So yes, it can happen. Not sure what the odds are, but I was honestly blown away.


Yes, the villager can be invited back. Not sure on the Mystery Island encounter part, as I've only seen this done through Amiibo re-invites.
