If you already have an Ingress, Pokémon GO, or Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, we suggest signing up for Pikmin Bloom with a login method you already use. You’ll be able to link a Nintendo Account later. 
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.

Having trouble accessing your Pikmin Bloom account? This article details troubleshooting steps for how to solve various sign-in issues.

Q. I can’t use my Niantic Kids account using other Niantic apps

We are experiencing a bug where Niantic Kids accounts used in other Niantic apps, such as Ingress, Pokémon GO, or Harry Potter: Wizard Unite, cannot be used in Pikmin Bloom. As a result, if you currently wish to use Niantic Kids for Pikmin Bloom, please create a new account. We have a plan to fix this issue in the future.


Q. I am a user over 13 years old, but when I try to log in with my Nintendo Account, I get the message "You cannot login with a kids account.”

If the user is 13 years old or older, you will be able to change your child account to a non-child account. For further instructions, please visit the Nintendo Account web page (https://accounts.nintendo.com/), and click on Help located at the bottom of the page.
In addition, if the Nintendo Account Parental Controls is enabled, there is an issue where users who are 13 years old or older cannot log in.  The issue is fixed on Android v33.4 and to be fixed in the upcoming release in iOS.

Q. (Android) Google Children Account can't download/login Google Fit

We are currently experiencing an issue where Android users who are children under the age of 13 (or the appropriate age in your country defined by Google) cannot download or log in to Google Fit if they are using a Google Account. For this reason, children who use Android are currently unable to play Pikmin Bloom.  Currently, Niantic is continuing to communicate with Google on the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience for children users who have been looking forward to playing Pikmin Bloom.


Q. I am an adult user, but when I try to log in with my Nintendo Account, I get the message "You cannot login with a non-kids account.”

If you enter your date of birth when you first start the app and it determines that you are a child, you will not be able to log in with your adult Nintendo Account. If your date of birth is entered incorrectly, you can re-enter it by deleting the app and installing it again.

“Unable to Authenticate” and “Failed to Log in” Error Messages

You may receive “failed to log in” or “unable to authenticate” error messages if our servers are experiencing a temporary issue or your network connectivity is poor.
Check to ensure your mobile device has a strong network connection, or wait a short while, then try logging in again. If the issue persists, try closing and reopening the Pikmin Bloom.

If it doesn't resolve the situation, Clear App cache, or, reinstall the app may fix the issue. If still not, please contact us and select "Sign-in Issue" from the dropdown menu with the error message, your player name, device info. (OS version and device name)

Password Help

Your account password is maintained by your login provider. Because Pikmin Bloom does not collect or store your external account passwords, our support team cannot access or reset the password of the external account you use to log in.
