In a Twitter post, Niantic confirmed the ongoing issue that many players were facing after using their Nintendo account to log in to Pikmin Bloom.  

Apart from the official address, Niantic posted a more elaborated version of the issue and current workaround in an FAQ and Known Issues post published on Pikmin Bloom’s official website.  

Here is what they had to say:

“If you already have an account of another Niantic app, we suggest signing up for Pikmin Bloom with a login method you already use.” 

“You’ll be able to link a Nintendo Account later. To link a Nintendo account, after signing up with your existing account, select the gear icon in the upper right corner of your profile screen > Linked Accounts > Nintendo.”

“Currently, when starting Pikmin Bloom with a Nintendo Account, you won’t be able to link it with any login methods used for other Niantic games.”

Since there is no in-game warning, we request Pikmin Bloom players to either inform their friends about the issue and the workaround or simply share this article. Or the official tweet on social channels to spread awareness. 

Pikmin Bloom is currently available in Android and iOS platforms.
