Pikmin Bloom level rewards list, level up items and what we know about the max level cap

Our in-progress list of items and rewards you unlock on the way to the level cap.

Pikmin Bloom level rewards give you bonus items as walk steps, plant flowers and grow Pikmin.

Increasing your level not only allows you to unlock additional features, but gives you a trickle of reward items as you play.

These include expanding your Pikmin squad and unlocking new Seedling types, and single use slots to grow them in.

Our in-progress level rewards list gives you a look at the steps and other requirements needed to unlock Pikmin Bloom levels - and the rewards you earn along the way.

What do we know about the max level cap in Pikmin Bloom?

According to a thread on the official community forum started by joanna, Pikmin Bloom's max level cap is 60.

In the closed beta, level 60 was planned to be the cap, with sky high requirements to progress onwards. That didn't appear to stop players however - allowing players to reach 100.

When the full game launched, the levelling requirements changed, and all beta players over the cap were moved down to level 60.


This is somewhat similar to the original cap for Harry Potter Wizards Unite, which we discovered soon after launch was also level 60.

This is different to Niantic's earlier games - for example, Pokemon Go's max level cap launched at 40 before going up to 50, while Ingress Prime allows players to Prestige and reset their progress back to the beginning once done.

With the amount of time it took to reach the cap in those games, understandably it'll take some time for players to reach the cap in Pikmin Bloom.

We don't know for sure what happens when you reach max level, but we suspect you'll receive a final wave of valuable items to take away.
