Pikmin Bloom level requirements and rewards list

Levels in Pikmin Bloom are mainly progressed by cumulative steps, so even if you aren't actively planting flowers, you should be gradually increasing your step count wherever you go.

However, as well as this, are other requirements to level up in Pikmin Bloom - from planting Pikmin to picking their petals.

The following in-progress table explains the Pikmin Bloom level rewards and requirements, which has been sourced from various reddit threads by the community as well as our own discoveries.

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.
