I noticed the lack of swarming control in this game. I did I quick search of this forum's archive and confirmed there's no equivalent to the C-Stick from the Gamecube games. I feel I can get used to this eventually, after learning you can dodge with the D-Pad, though I also feel I need to ask, is there any way to more efficiently pick up fruit and other items than tossing Pikmin at them one by one? It seems painfully slow, otherwise.

With the gamepad, press B after locking onto something to have your pikmin charge at it. There's no swarm this time though.

This. Basically, the "discharge" button while locking on will make you send your entire squad at the target at once. It's really handy.
Later in the game, you will get Pikmin that can fly. Discharging them towards an elevated target will make them fly straight for it. It's super handy. (spoiler marked just in case you don't want Pikmin types revealed)
