In Ikonei Island: An Overland Adventure, you will have the opportunity to beautify an island, eliminate enemies and make it your home. To do this, you will need to grow a variety of plants, which will then need to be pollinated. At the beginning of the game, Sariel will give you some pollen bags, but eventually they will run out.
In this guide, we are going to take a look att how can you get more pollen bags. There are two main methods to get this; using a Bibi or making it yourself. First, let’s go over how to make your own pollen bags.
Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure is currently in Early Access on Steam and as such the content is subject to change. We will update these articles as necessary.
Pollen Bag Recipe
From Sariel’s Boutique, You can purchase the pollen bag recipe as well as the pollen bag itself.
A bag of pollen will cost you 100 Frogboy coins., which can be a lot, especially since you’ll need to buy more when you run out. Instead of doing this, we recommend buying the recipe for a bag of pollen, which only costs 50 Frogboy Coins. This will allow you to craft more without spending money at Sariel’s Boutique again.
Sariel can be found in a small clearing to the left of the main square. She will give you basic farming equipment; once you build the farm, Sariel will be moving here and will start seeing a variety of farm related products from him.
To make the pollen bag, you will need the following ingredients.
The combination of these ingredients will create a bag of pollen that you can use on your plants. Each bag has a use, which means you’ll probably need to make a few. Next, let’s take a quick look at how to get the raw pollen needed to make these bags.
Obtaining raw pollen
To make the pollen bag, you will need raw pollen. This can be done by processing petals on the cutter.. The cutter is a piece of equipment that you can buy at CAT after repairing the workshop and assembling the mechanism. For more information on this, be sure to check out our guide on how to assemble the mechanism.
of the cat, you can buy a cutter, as well as the recipe to make it. Once built, all you need to do is place flower petals on it and they will be processed into pollen. Petals can be obtained from flowers all over the island and come in a wide variety of colors. The color of the petal does not affect the pollen you receive.
Pollinating with Bibis
Instead of using pollen bags to pollinate your plants, you can also use a bibi. These are small bee-like creatures that you first need to be freed from a pirate outpost. After freeing them, the Bibis will fly for a while; approach one to make it ‘yours’.
You will need to bond with additional Bibis if you want other characters to be able to summon them. To do this, approach them again and find one to bond with.
Once freed, Bibis can be found in Blossom Meadows, right above where the Mechanism Assembly Area is located.
To use a Bibi for pollination, first need to summon and bond with him. This will give you control of Bibi, allowing you to fly. As Bibi, you will see some plants glow. Targeting these plants will “collect” their pollen, which is displayed in bubbles just above the toolbar.
With the pollen in hand, you can fly to the plants that need to be pollinated and spread the pollen. when you do this, a golden circle will appear on the ground; any plants within this area will be pollinated.
Unlike pollen bags, you can use Bibi pollen on various plants. For example, if the pollination circle covers three plants, all three will be pollinated once. If you were to buy pollen bags from Sariel, it would cost you 300 Frogboy Coins.
Just like other creatures on the island, you can level up Bibi’s star rating. Make sure you cater to their needs and give them plenty of juice!
We recommend plant some flowers around your harvestable crops. These flowers will provide a source of pollen for Bibis, so you won’t need to fly too far when you need more.. To get flowers, you can simply pluck them from the ground. This will cause the flower to go into your inventory, allowing you to easily replant it later.
That’s all there is to know to get more pollen! General, the best way to pollinate your plants is by using the Bibi.
