First Pikmin Bloom Community Day Announced

The first Pikmin Bloom Community Day has been announced! The game has only been out a week or two, but the developers are already gearing up for their first event.

The Pikmin Bloom Community Day will be next week, on November 13th (Saturday). It’ll take place from 9 AM — 6 PM (local time).

You can read the official announcement for the Pikmin Bloom event from Niantic over on their blog post.

This event will feature various in-app rewards, including a special badge, increased seedling growth speed, and more.

Here is a full list of event features:

  • Pikmin seedlings in your planter pack will grow at about 1.5x the usual speed
  • Fruits will give 2x the usual amount of nectar
  • Users who walk 10,000 steps or more on this day will be awarded a special “Community Day Participant” badge
  • Big Flowers will bloom into pansies

The developers state their goal is “to continue holding events for our players to come together and fill the world with flowers going forward.”

Pikmin Bloom is available now for both Android and iOS. We hope everyone has a great time with the event and make sure to stay safe!
