As the third Pikmin Bloom 1st anniversary, tomorrow Niantic is kicking off the “Pikmin 3 Deluxe” event, inspired by the Switch game. By completing event-exclusive tasks, you can obtain badges for the three main characters of “Pikmin 3 Deluxe”, Alph, Brittany, and Charlie, as well as meet special Decor Pikmin. Niantic has also prepared a limited-time gift for those who have played Pikmin 3 Deluxe in the past.
You can see full details on this special event below.
Starting November 15th 2022 0:00 am local time
Clear a total of 3 step-focused tasks during this part of the event and get badges featuring the main characters of Pikmin 3 Deluxe: Alph, Brittany, and Charlie!
These tasks will focus mainly on walking, and the number of steps required gets incrementally higher as you move to the next task – time to carefully plan out your daily stroll time!
- *Tasks for this part of the event will be available from November 15h until December 9th.
From November 28th 2022 0:00 am local time to December 9th 2022 11:59 pm local time
Clear a total of 3 flower planting tasks during this part of the event to obtain Gold Seedlings that grow into “Koppaite Space Suit” Decor Pikmin. Just like with the first part of the event, difficulty increases with each task you clear, so be sure to stock up on petals beforehand!
“Koppaite Space Suit” Decor Pikmin come in 3 types only: Blue, Red, and Yellow. Each Gold Seedling obtained by clearing tasks during this event will grow into a different color Pikmin – you can complete your collection by clearing all three tasks!
- If you have leftover tasks from the first part of the event, you will still be able to participate in one task per part of the event at the same time (two tasks at a time).
- “Koppaite Space Suit” Decor Pikmin can only grow from Gold Seedlings. You are not able to encounter them by raising your friendship levels with Pikmin grown from regular seedlings.
- Gold Seedlings obtained during the 1st Anniversary Pikmin 3 Deluxe Event will still grow into “Koppaite Space Suit” Decor Pikmin even after the event period has ended.
- Tasks are displayed one at a time. You must clear the task at hand before moving on to the next one.
