It hasn’t been a month since Pikmin Bloom was released. This early, it’s been revealed that the game will have its first special event. This is the Community Day happening Saturday, November 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (local time).

In a post, developer Niantic revealed that they’re going to hold more events after this one. They also reminded everyone to always be aware of their surroundings and follow the local guidelines set by local health authorities when playing the game.

For the duration of the event, players can look forward to these rewards:

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

So what is Pikmin Bloom exactly? Pikmin are tiny plant-like creatures that exist in the world but can’t be seen with the naked eye. To see them, players need to have Pikmin Bloom. Anyway, they grow from seedlings, and those that got plucked would follow players around. These Pikmin love nectar from fruits and when fed with them, they grow flowers on top of their heads. Over the course of the game, players can meet and interact with different Pikmin.

Here are some details of the game:

  • Walk to grow more Pikmin. The most important mechanic in the game is the daily walk.
  • As players walk, they will find Pikmin seedlings along the way.
    • The more players walk, the more the Pikmin squad grows.
    • Players can pluck Pikmin from seedlings after they grow.
  • Walk to make flowers bloom.
    • Players who walk with their Pikmin make flowers bloom along their path.
    • Feeding Pikmin nectar from different fruits results in flowers blooming on their heads.
    • Players need to collect the petals to plant them and flowers bloom with each step they take.
  • Walk to log your memories.
    • At the end of the day, players can review the number of steps they took as well as the routes they walked.
    • Players have the option to add notes and photos to the lifelog and turn an ordinary day into a special memory.
  • Pikmin can also bring back postcards of the places they visited.
    • These can be saved and kept, or sent to friends in the app.

Pikmin Bloom was developed by Niantic and Nintendo and is available on Android and iOS.
