In the original Pikmin, while Captain Olimar could launch his Hocotate ship into low orbit at nightfall, he couldn’t leave the mysterious planet he crashed on until he found all of his displaced parts with the help of the Pikmin. In a similar way, you can’t get the full experience out of Pikmin Bloom until you’ve walked around a bit with your little plant buddies. Here’s what you need to know about Pikmin Bloom level requirements and rewards.
Pikmin Bloom keeps track of your player level based on multiple factors. The primary counter by which your experience is measured is the number of steps you take while the game is running, though you’re also tracked on things like the number of Pikmin you plant and grow, the number of expeditions you send Pikmin on, the number of flower petals you pick up, and the number of flowers you plant. As you engage with the game, you’ll level up, not only granting you cool rewards like squad expansions, single-use slots, and free seedlings, but also unlocking new game features.
