A Pikmin Bloom player made an attempt to rescue her gift Pikmin mid-way through a transpacific flight and actually succeeded.

Pikmin Bloom, an augmented reality mobile game similar to Pokemon Go, just celebrated its one-year-and-a-half anniversary by hosting a special event that brought a variety of colorful flowers to the game. Each player’s real-world movements are rewarded with unique items for their Pikmin creatures while playing.

It is not difficult to see the appeal of a Pokemon Go-style game involving adorable Pikmin creatures, but such games can also get tedious after a while. When this happens, fans look for ways to challenge themselves and spice up the gameplay.

The poor little Pikmin had still been making his way, returning from the long trip with the gifts he had picked up. Reb, the player in question, stated that she would attempt to rescue him while flying back to California. This would mean she’d have to attempt a retrieval while flying over the Pacific Ocean to get her Pikmin back.

The player returned to Twitter just a day later after saying she would attempt the rescue, confirming that she had, in fact, succeeded! She managed to collect her well-traveled Pikmin while crossing the ocean via airplane.
