thought about the idea today after doing my psychology exam at school.
I think it is very possible to use the pikipedia in pikmin 2 to come up with an exam, testing pikmin players on their knowledge of pikmin, areas, beasts, cooking methods and treasure... unless it already exists somewere.
So study up on your pikmin knowledge if you are interested in taking part. I was thinking of making it up of multiple choice, short answer questions, and 1 extended response question.

flowered white pikmin are so fast, they SLOW DOWN when spicy-sprayed red pikmin do 50% more damage than normal pikmin, but purples do double, completely outclassing reds when spicy-sprayed, pikmin don't do more damage, but rather they attack more rapidly. At the same time, purples and reds lose their extra attack bonus, so all types do the same amount mamuta tastes like chicken
... hey wait a sec, I've looked all over and the only place I've seen those facts on that speedrun. I'm not doubting those values and whatnot, but does someone have a link to where that was at?
Also, here is a fact I often hear falsely stated.
Especially because of the wiki, people think that spectralids around the bulborbs in The piklopedia is just an unlock after finding both of them.
This is false.
The spectralids actually appear for Any creature after a certain death count. I lost the link to the thread, but this is definite. Not sure about plants since they can't be killed, but creatures that can be killed count. I don't have the exact counts, and I don't think anyone is willing to go and find them all, but some creatures have... ridiculously high counts.
yeah i found those on miles's speedrun, since they weren't really well-known gameplay facts, and mamuta tasting like chicken is an awesome fact too. I know they're true since, you know, he extracts the data directly from the game (I think... or something along those lines)
