Pikmin Bloom, Niantic's latest AR game and wellness from Niantic Labs, is adding a new kind of Pikmin. This game is cut from the same cloth as mobile developer Niantic's previous games Pokémon GO and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (which i greatly miss), but it actually removes the competitive aspect with the goal less "collect 'em all" and more "beautify the world with flowers." Pikmin Bloom encourages players walk around their communities in real life while planting seeds on the map of their game, which will bloom into beautiful flowers. There is, however, a collecting aspect of the game in the form of special Decor Pikmin. Decor Pikmin come with special accouterments which can be limited. Let's take a look at this latest announcement to see the new Decor Pikmin that can be found now.
Here's what Niantic Labs had to say about Decor Pikmin, which are now available in Pikmin Bloom just in time for this weekend's May 21st Community Day:
