Valentine's Day is just around the corner and Pikmin Bloom is about ready to celebrate in style. Starting tomorrow (February 6th) until February 26th, you'll be able to try out special Valentine's Day missions and bag yourselves some 'Present Sticker' gold seedlings.

Here's some more information from Niantic:

The gold seedlings you can get by completing event missions will be purple, white, winged, and rock "present sticker" Decor Pikmin. Complete all 20 tasks to meet the 4 types of "Present Sticker" Decor Pikmin mentioned above.

If you participate in the Weekly Challenges, you will also receive gold seedlings. The gold seedlings you can obtain in the Weekly Challenges will be red, yellow, and blue "Present Sticker" Decor Pikmin.

If you quit the challenge before it’s finished, you will not receive any gold seedlings.Red mushrooms will grow more often than usual during the event period!

All postcards that your Pikmin find during the event period will have a Valentine's Day design.

You can also get “Present Sticker” Decor Pikmin by inviting friends to play Pikmin Bloom. When your friend starts playing the game using your code, you will receive a gold seedling containing a red, yellow, blue, purple, white, winged, or rock "Present Sticker" Decor Pikmin.

There are seven types of "Present Sticker" Deco Pikmin in total: red, yellow, blue, purple, white, winged, and rock.

Valentine’s Day Gift Packs that can be sent to friends, and Limited Special Packs with useful goodies for the event, will be available in the store during the event period. (To make sure you receive the Valentine’s Day Gift Packs, please use app version v61 or later.)
