Looking to learn how to get free Pikmin Bloom coins? Niantic's new game is all about creating a merry band of Pikmin in an AR overworld. You'll get to plant them, grow them, pick them, feed them nectar, and create your own little army—though this time you won't need to murder any giant monsters to recover starship parts.
Instead, you'll be strolling lots while planting all sorts of colourful flowers along the way. This will help you both grow your Pikmin and stay healthy in the real world. However, if you want to speed-up the rate at whcih you're growing Pikmin and get the fancy consumables, you're going to need some coins. And guess what? Coins cost real coins.
However, there is at least one way to get them for free, and in this Pikmin Bloom coins guide, we'll walk you through what that is. We'll also explain how to buy the currency, including a price list, and what you can expect to purchase in-store with them. If you're on the lookout for more in-game freebies, why not consider our lists of Genshin Impact codes and Cookie Run: Kingdom codes? Without further ado, here's what you need to know about Pikmin Bloom coins.
How Do I Get Free Pikmin Bloom Coins?
The best way to claim coins in Pikmin Bloom is to plant flowers while you're out and about. In order to do this, you first need to pass the tutorial. After that, you just have to tap the 'Flower' button on the right of the screen when walking in order to plant some Petals and create a one. You earn one Pikmin Bloom coin for every 500 flowers you plant, meaning you're going to have to get some pretty green fingers if you want to earn much of the currency at all.

When you gain a level, you should be able to plant more flowers as well, making things quicker. Once you've completed your current session, any coins you've earned will be delivered to you, and then you can spend them in the shop to get a variety of items. However, if you don't plant at least 500 flowers in a session, you won't get a coin, and you'll have to plant another 500 to earn one next time.
