Pikmin Bloom

Pikmin Bloom strips away a lot of the complications of Pokémon Go and takes the good bits to marry with the adorable and accessible Pikmin characters. The game more clearly promotes walking and rewards exploration without overwhelming the player with mechanics. It’s a lifelog, pedometer and cheerleader for an active life that is easy to jump into.

Grow your Pikmin, make flowers bloom, and keep track of your most precious memories, all through the simple act of walking.

Walk to log your memories:At the end of the day, you can review the number of steps you took as well as the routes you walked. You have the option to add notes and photos to your lifelog, providing a way to turn an ordinary day into a special memory. Pikmin may also bring back postcards of the places you visited, which can be saved and kept, or sent to friends in the app.

Niantic and Nintendo launch Pikmin Bloom

So far I’m thrilled with Pikmin Bloom and use it as a companion to other apps I use to track and motivate my runs and walks. I’ve loved the world Nintendo created with the Pikmin games and they’re probably the Nintendo IP with the most untapped potential. They’re characters my daughter has gravitated to in animated shorts and other media so it’s fun to bring her in on the augmented reality elements of the game. I’m looking forward to seeing how this game with grow in the months ahead.
