Grow your Pikmin, make flowers bloom, and keep track of your precious memories, all through the simple act of walking. Whether you’re going for a short walk around the corner or commuting to work, today’s the very first day of the rest of your Pikmin adventures! Gather your squad and embark on a journey of rediscovery where every step counts.


Walk to grow more Pikmin. Pikmin grow from seedlings with every step you take. Once they are big enough, pluck them out to have them trail along. The more you walk, the more Pikmin will join your squad!

Walk to make flowers bloom. Collect flower petals from your Pikmin’s heads and plant them as you walk to leave trails of beautiful flowers in bloom everywhere you go.

Walk to log your memories. At the end of the day, check out your step count along with the path you walked, and revisit the pictures you took throughout the day. Don’t forget to send your Pikmin out on expeditions to pick up the fruit and seedlings you passed on your way back home!

Lots of Pikmin to meet. There are seven types of Pikmin in total, and all of them have their own unique characteristics. For example, some can fly, and others are incredibly strong. When your friendship level reaches a certain threshold, your Pikmin may bring back a gift with an item that will help them become a Decor Pikmin.

Tackle challenges with Pikmin. Nearby mushrooms are a great way to get lots of fruit. When you come across mushrooms blocking your path, you can send your trusty Pikmin squad to charge forth and make way.

Cute with a few bugs

This app definitely makes walking more fun, but more often than not it says I’m going too fast when I might be literally sitting on the couch. I really like the feature of sending out pikmin to get fruit and seedlings, and the postcards they bring back are cute too. It’s a more passive game than Pokemon Go, but I think I like it more for that reason since I don’t want to be constantly checking my phone while I’m out. I can just open the app, turn on flower planting and then just tuck it into my pocket and know I’m making the world more beautiful.

It’s just Pokémon go but boring

I tried to play the game but after the tutorial it just got super boring
All you can do is just walk, check how much you’ve walked, plat flowers and play with your Pikmin but even that’s a stretch since all you can do is throw them, feed them nectar, and call them not to mention you need to walk 1,000 just to get ONE Pikmin I walked around my whole block and BARELY Broke 100 how an I supposed to make 1,000 AND have fun? At least walking huge amounts in Pokemon go is an ALTERNATIVE and not a requirement like in this game and the Pikmin do absolutely NOTHING besides give you more Pikmin. Like they could have at least added enemy’s that you could fight for stuff like using your Pikmin the defeat a bulborb and gain some more Pikmin or a new nectar like the red one or the purple one or have a flower that you could set certain Pikmin to to collect stuff over time so that you have INSENSITIVE go and walk around but it doesn’t have any of that it’s just a step count that has Pikmin in it that do NOTHING. All this time with no new game and this is what we get? Really? Metroid game looks great kirbys game is 3D and looks great Pokémon’s new games look great Pikmin get a bland step counter with Pikmin you can toss around and that’s it. (At least I HOPE this isn’t it and they might add more to it down the line but we can only wait and see)

Great game with a few issues

Very enjoyable game totally worth the download. That being said, there are a few issues. Firstly, there are a few small bugs that come with most new mobile games and will hopefully be fixed soon. Secondly, the walking system can easily be cheated by manually inputting your steps per day on the health app! This needs to be fixed ASAP! Finally, the game itself is good but it does need some more content. Possibly more mini games, a reason to actually explore. The large flowers you can find and make bloom don’t seem to have any apparent value. They don’t seem to do much and personally, aren’t much of an incentive to explore. Regardless this game is very enjoyable and definitely worth the download, i hope it receives continuous support and more players. Great game 👍
