Weekly challenges are a feature of Pikmin Bloom, introduced in version 44.0. Each week, a certain challenge (such as walking some number of steps) is set for all players, and players can work together with up to 4 friends or other players to complete the challenge as a group. Completing a challenge before the deadline gives rewards to each player in the group.

To begin a weekly challenge, a player needs to open the challenge list menu and select a challenge. A menu displaying groups participating in the selected challenge will be presented. These groups are comprised of the player's friends, as well as friends of friends, an option featuring only the player if they choose to begin a new challenge themselves, and a final option to start a group with 4 other random players. After selecting a group, the player will be asked to confirm their choice. After starting the challenge, the player may invite friends to any open slots.

While a challenge is active, it’s display in the challenge list changes to display the challenge's progress and it’s participants. Tapping on the challenge will bring the player to a screen showing all participants jogging together, each alongside the first five Pikmin in their active squad, according to their most recently-chosen sorting order. This screen features various elements, such as each player's step or flower total, the total step or flower goal and how many days remain to achieve it, the date the group began the challenge, a breakdown of each player's contribution towards the goal, their profile images and names, as well as a random quote.

Upon completing a challenge, whether by reaching either the goal or the expiration date, the player is brought to a screen displaying the group and their progress. A star-rating from 1-3 is awarded based on how much of the goal was achieved. The screen will then focus on each player's Mii as their contributions are displayed and celebrated by the other Miis and Pikmin in the group.

If the player leaves a challenge before it is completed, their progress in the challenge will be removed, and they will be able to join another challenge. If they rejoin the same challenge, their previous progress does not get added.

The challenge ends at midnight on Monday in the timezone of the user who created the group.

Types of challenges[edit]

There are currently 2 types of weekly challenges, with the possibility of more being added in the future. Challenges of different types can be done at the same time, but challenges of the same type cannot.

Step challenges[edit]

Icon for flower-based weekly challenges. Flower planting challenges require players to plant some number of flowers in the week. When one player in the team plants 1000 flowers, other players in the team get a small number of petals as a reward. On the screen where participants are shown walking, decorative flowers of different types appear on the ground. At the current time, one option is offered each week, requiring 30,000 flowers planted to complete.

From, June 2023 to July 2023, two options were available each week for flower planting challenges, one for planting 20,000 flowers and one for planting 30,000 flowers, with each giving different types and amounts of petals as a reward.

Weekly Challenge Tickets[edit]

Weekly challenge tickets are a freemium item that allow a player to initiate additional weekly challenges. A weekly challenge ticket may be used to replay a week's step challenge or flower planting challenge. It is consumed regardless of whether the player starts a new challenge.

Weekly challenge tickets may be purchased from the shop for 200 coins each, or earned as a reward from an event.


Since their introduction on April 28th, 2022, there has been at least 1 weekly challenge each week, with all challenges running from Monday to Sunday (except the first). Initially, there was just one challenge each week, a step challenge. On May 16th, a second step challenge option was added, where players could choose whether to do the easy option (most often 20,000 steps) or the hard option (most often 100,000 steps). Completing an easy step challenges usually gives 20 white nectar, 20 yellow nectar, 20 red nectar, and 10 blue nectar. Completing a hard step challenge usually gives 40 white nectar, 40 yellow nectar, 40 red nectar, 20 blue nectar, and 1 special nectar.

On July 11th, 2022, flower planting challenges were introduced. These usually give white petals, yellow petals, red petals, a single-use slot, and some other kind of petal when completed, though this has varied over time. Initially there were 2 levels of flower planting challenges, similar to step challenges, but from September 26th there was only 1 type of flower planting challenge each week. Since July 3rd, 2023 there have now been 2 types of flower planting challenges again.

On May 23rd, 2023, the Challenge Recharge Ticket was renamed to the Weekly Challenge Ticket.

On November 1st, 2023, the Weekly Challenge Ticket's price in the shop increased from 100 to 200 coins.

Events occasionally add temporary extra rewards for completing weekly challenges, such as a Gold Seedling or a Mii part. These rewards are usually obtained no matter the score the player gets on the weekly challenge.
