1p.INTRODUCTION!
################################


This is my very first Faq and I hope it is both useful and helpful 
to the masses of Pikmin 2 Players.  Pikmin 2 is a very fun and amazing
game to which many corners of it remain hidden.  This Faq is meant for 
those trying to complete the Piklopedia, a new addition that allows
the gamer to see what enemies they have conquered and learn about them.
There is also a section on what monsters appear where. Have fun!



################################
2p.SPOILER WARNING!
################################


There may be information about enemies that may spoil some part of the game.
(i.e. Bosses or How to get Louie’s notes) So if you are a SPOILER phobic, then
you might want to stay away from the monster descriptions and notes.



################################
3p.VERSION HISTORY!
################################


VERSION 1.0 - Filled out Monster List and Louie's Notes. And Monster Locations
              above ground.



################################
4p.PIKLOPEDIA EXPLANATION
################################


The Piklopedia is a list of Monsters that you have defeated or Plants you have
seen.  It also lists how many Pokos you get for a certain monster, how many
Pikmin you lost to it, and how many of them you have defeated. Also as an
added bonus, you can feed Pikpik carrots to the Monsters and watch them eat!
=D Kind of like your own Pikmin Zoo. There are notes that Olimar has written
down about the family a certain enemy comes from and its "scientific" name.
The Piklopedia updates after you either defeat an enemy and bring it to the
ship, defeat an enemy that CANNOT be picked up, walk through a plant,
or when you use certain plants. I hope you enjoy and use my Piklopedia faq to
its full potential!




################################
5p.PIKLOPEDIA MONSTER LIST!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
===========5pa.NORMAL MONSTERS!=
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***#1***

Red Bulborb

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

The Red Bulborb looks like a giant red ball with white spots
o its back and a huge yellow snout. Is eyes are at the end of
two antennae and the whole thing is supported by two scrawny
legs.

-Red Bulborb

Oculus kageyamii russus

Grub-dog family

This large organism has the familiar mandibles and cranial morphology of the
grub-dog family, as well as the characteristic bulging eyes. As with most 
grub-dogs, the creature's cranium comprises half of its total length and
girth. Showing a scarlet abdomen with white spots, this creature is primarily
nocturnal, choosing to prey upon smaller creatures returning to their nests.
Originally classified as the spotty bulborb, further research has reclassified
this species as the red bulborb. Subspecies of varied colors have recently
been discovered, but academics are divided into two rival camps over how to 
handle their classification.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Like all Bulborbs, the easiest way to get at them is by
sneaking up behind them. Just bring 10-15 Pikmin and you should just toss them
on relentlessly. An easy win.



***#2***


Hairy Bulborb

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

The Hairy Bulborb is the same shape and size of the Red Bulborb except the
skin is white and the nose and feet are brown. It also has a very hairy back.
Until it gets past half health, then the hair falls of. Hey, stress does that
to you!

-Hairy Bulborb

Oculus kageyamii folliculus

Grub-dog family

This subspecies of grub-dog has a thick coat of soft white fur that obscures
its abdominal markings. The fur also warms its vital organs, making this
species well adapted to colder climates. However, its hair follicles are
surprisingly frail, which can result in immediate hair loss if the creature
is surprised.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy is no different from the Red Bulborb. Except
his hairy back. Just the same it may help to bring 1 or 2 Purple Pikmin to
stun it.



***#3***

Orange Bulborb

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

Again, same as the Red Bulborb except the skin is orange and the spots,
feet, and nose are black. Its eyes are also yellow. And he will wake
up even before you touch him.

-Orange Bulborb

Oculus kageyamii orangium

Grub-dog family

This bulborb species boasts a garish color pattern, with deep orange body and
black spots. The orange bulborb's yellow, bloodshot eyes make it clear that
this grub-dog is excessively edgy and high-strung, making it much easier to
wake from deep sleep than other species in the bulborb family.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
One major difference in this Bulborb. YOU CAN'T SNEAK
UP ON IT!!!!! So don't try the whole "walk slowly up to the enemy while he is
sleeping to get the first attack" thing. Just grab a Purple Pikmin and then
run and toss it on top of him. While it is stunned just keep the Pikmin flow
steady.



***#4***

Dwarf Red Bulborb

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

Imagine a Red Bulborb. Now make it shrink to about a tenth of its size. THAT
is a Dwarf Red Bulborb.

-Dwarf Red Bulborb

Pansarus pseudoculii russus

Breadbug family

Although initially identified as a juvenile red bulborb, groundbreaking new
research indicates that this creature is in fact a member of the breadbug
family. A close relative of the vanilla breadbug, it escapes predation through
mimicry. Unique adaptation of the red bulborb's crimson coloration allows the
species to safely commingle. Such effective adaptation and obfuscation by a
prey species is rare, indicating this clever creature is a master of mimicry.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Not even worth a strategy, but meh. When they are alone just swarm them
with your Pikmin. When they are in groups of 3 or more then try luring one out
at a time. Also you can kill it instantly if you toss a Pikmin perfectly on
top of it.



***#5***

Snow Bulborb

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

The miniature version of the Hairy Bulborb.......without the hairy.  You can
see the blue spots on its back now due to the lack of hair.

-Snow Bulborb

Pansarus pseudooculii frosticus

Breadbug family

Like the dwarf red bulborb, the snow bulborb is a member of the breadbug
family that seeks to survive through imitating the appearance and behavior of
a bulborb. Its pale coloration and blue spots make easy identification. In 
particular, this organism mimics the hairy bulborb, but it is of course unable
to grow the hair that gives the hairy bulborb its name. However, as the hairy
bulborb has been known to lose its hair in certain circumstances, the snow
bulborb is an effective mimic that is often mistaken for a member of the same
species.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Swarm them with Pikmin armies. Even if they get one of your Pikmin they
will spit them out if you kill them soon after. They also are susceptible to
the one-hit k.o. thing.



***#6***

Dwarf Orange Bulborb

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

Orange Bulborb......the miniature series! Yep, another Bulborb wannabe. 
Nothing new.

-Dwarf Orange Bulborb

Pansarus pseudooculii orangium

Breadbug family

Just as dwarf red bulborbs mimic the appearance of red bulborbs, it was
theorized that an orange bulborb-mimicking variant must also exist. Recent 
fieldwork has confirmed this theory.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Like their bigger versions, they also are able to sense you when you are
further than normal. But not by much. So just swarm them to death!



***#7***

Spotty Bulbear

Treasure Value:
10 Pokos

The Spotty Bulbear is a giant ball with big lips. The back half of it is
black with red spots. and a tan frontal nose. IT can walk over any terrain
with its slightly thicker legs. Its eyes are also purple.

-Spotty Bulbear

Oculus terribilis dotticum

Grub-dog family

A midsize subspecies within the grub-dog family, the spotty bulbear's unique
feeding habits set it apart from other grub-dogs. The spotty bulbear patrols
a set path searching for prey, instead of passively feeding on creatures that
wander into a limited territorial range. When entering bulbear habitat, it
is wise to proceed with extreme caution until the bulbear's patrol path can
be clearly identified.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys can surprise you at any moment since they can walk over most
terrain! You can't sneak up on them so try the ol' bait and switch trick.
Just walk in front of it and when it is about to attack, just step out of the
way and run behind it and throw on your Pikmin.



***#8***

Dwarf Bulbear

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

They look exactly like the Spotty Bulbear except smaller. Even their lips
are big like its parents!

-Dwarf Bulbear

Oculus terribilis

Grub-dog family

A grub-dog larva in its third stage of development, this creature's body
structure is nearing maturation. However, unlike mature bulbears, it has not
yet to claim its own patrol route, and thus is dependant upon its parent for
guarding direction.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys are usually around an adult Spotty Bulbear, so be careful! But
anyways, they are just like the other Dwarfs. Just swarm them until they cry!



***#9***

Bulborb Larva

Treasure Value:
none(disappear when their health reaches zero)

To me the grossest monster on the list. It is a slug with a bulborb face that
crawls around on the ground. They are spit out of the Empress Bulbax's butt. 
Which is disgusting to see and hear.....

-Bulborb Larva

Oculus bambinii

Grub-dog family

As its name implies, this creature is a bulborb in an early stage of
development.  Its distinct bulborb coloration has yet to appear, but it
already exhibits other uniquely bulborb characteristics. It is capable of 
hunting nourishment independently without the help of its parents.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys are so weak that the Captains can kill them in one hit.
But if you feel like using perfectly good Pikmin on them then just bring
3 or 4. But watch out, if you let them be they multiply like crazy! @_@



***#10***

Fiery Bulbax

Treasure Value:
10 Pokos

This looks like a Bulborb with a jagged looking jaw and forked toes.  One of
its eyes are smaller than the other.  Oh yeah...and did I mention its back
is on fire?

-Fiery Bulbax

Oculus vulcanus

Grub-dog family

Bodily excretions of a highly flammable waxy substance interact with the cell
structure of this grub-dog's skin, causing a chemical reaction that produces
extremely high temperatures. The skin benefits from a spongy cell structure
that diffuses the surface heat, protecting the creature's inner organs. Due to
the astonishing amount of heat produced by this beast, it should be observed 
with great caution.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Unless they are near a water source these guys can only be taken down with
Red Pikmin. They sleep too so sneak up on it and toss them Reddish on him. Any
other types of Pikmin will fall of in flames. If they ARE near a water source
then you can lure them into it and use blue Pikmin. But I suggest just
sticking with the Red guys. Its health regenerates even after it dies so take
it back to your ship quickly.



***#11***

Water Dumple

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

It looks like a blue oval with dark blue lines randomly spread throughout.
And it has a long flat tailfin. And the eyes are unseen.

-Water Dumple

Ichthyosa felinis

Grub-dog family

A resident of freshwater pools and marshes, this aquatic creature regularly
feeds on insects that land on the surface of the water. It shares a nearly
identical skeletal structure with its close relative and terrestrial cousin,
the bulborb. This may offer clues to its evolutionary origin and suggests that
it only recently immigrated to an aquatic habitat.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Since these guys are water creatures, you can only use Blue Pikmin most of
the time. They attack big and are usually in groups of 2-3. Just swarm them
with an army of Blue Pikmin and you should be fine.



***#12***

Bulbmin

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

Bulbmin are actually parasitic versions of the Pikmin. But the monster it
infests is what looks like a Dwarf Red Bulborb. IT looks just like one except
for the lone leaf coming from its back. It is followed around by tiny versions
of itself that are the size of Pikmin and can be commanded once the parent is
killed.

-Bulbmin

Parasiticus pikminicus

Pikmin family

This loathsome creature is in fact a parasitic form of Pikmin that has
infected a bulborb. Unlike Pikmin that nest in Pikmin Onions, this parasitic
relative spends its life inside the body of a host, usually a bulborb. 
Juveniles fall in line and mimic the actions of their parent until maturing
to full independence. By burying its root like limbs into the nervous system
of the host bulborb and infusing it with natural hormonal excretions, the
bulbmin is able to control virtually all of the host's bodily functions.
However, the host's voracious appetite seems impossible to suppress.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
The mother is easily picked of with 10 Pikmin of any type. The babies,
however, will follow you and act like Pikmin. They have every advantage of
the White, Blue, Red, and Yellow Pikmin!!!!! =D



***#13***

Fiery Blowhog

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

It is basically a blob of white fat with a long snout at the end. The lips of
this creature are red because it breathes fire. Very small legs.

-Fiery Blowhog

Sus draconus

Blowhog family

This creature expels a volatile phosphorous compound from its snout that
combusts upon contact with air. This fire-breathing ability is dependent upon
the air-to-fuel ratio at its mouth, catalyst reaction within the expelled
compound, and purification of the compound. Thus it is highly unlikely such a
complex process could cause the spontaneous explosion of a fallen blowhog.
(This process is also perhaps to avoid risk of spontaneous combustion in the
belly of a live specimen.) However, one should still threat a fiery blowhog
with great care, even after its life functions have ceased.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Red Pikmin only please. If you bring any amount of Red Pikmin it is a
guaranteed win against it. It can either blow fire, which red are invulnerable
to, or blow away your Pikmin, which doesn't kill them, so there you go.



***#14***

Watery Blowhog

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

It looks just like the Fiery Blowhog except its lips are of the blue color
instead of the red. Also have very small legs.

-Watery Blowhog

Sus logins

Blowhog family

A variant subspecies of the fiery blowhog, the watery blowhog lacks several of
the dominant genes necessary for the production of fire-producing catalysts,
and thus expels jets of nonflammable liquid. This subspecies appears to have
only recently evolved. However, the hereditary traits of his variant are
dominant and highly robust, so its population is rapidly increasing.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
The blue Pikmin totally own this enemy. They are immune to its water shot.
And they just get blown away from the only other attack.



***#15***

Armored Cannon Beetle Larva

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

It is a giant caterpillar with a large snout that it uses to shoot out
boulders that roll straight ahead.

-Armored Cannon Bettle Larva

Granitus chikulinae

Lithopod family

This specimen is a lithopod larva. This expedition was unable to confirm the
existence of any mature lithopods, leading to concerns that the species was
extinct on this planet, but the discovery of the creature in larval form
eased such concerns. Lithopods, like flint beetles, use internal metabacteria
to aid chemical digestion. These metabacteria can only survive in certain
environments, such as within the body of certain insects, so lithopod larvae
do not contain any metabacteria immediately after hatching. Larvae feed on
partially digested ore regurgitated by mature lithopods, ensuring the larvae
obtain metabacteria they would not normally have acquired.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Before fighting it, get it to shoot its rock attack at you and hit all the
other enemies around you. Then run behind it and throw on some Pikmin. He
usually throws them off before it dies so quickly whistle them to you before
it shoots a rock and squishes them. Then toss them on again until it is dead.



***#16***

Decorated Cannon Beetle

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

The hide of this monster is the same shape as the Armor Cannon Beetle Larvae
except that it is red and has slight spikes on the humps. It also shoots out
boulders from its snout but instead they follow the prey it shoots at until it
is stopped by another solid object.......or another enemy.......

-Decorated Cannon Beetle

Granitus decorum

Lithopod family

This creature is the larval form of a cannon beetle variant known for a diet
consisting entirely of eating stones. The decorated cannon beetle favors
stones with high iron content,which contributes to its brilliant red torso.
The stones these creatures launch are wrapped in a powerful magnetic field from
their launch trajectory when other objects with high metal content, such as
space suits, are nearby. Extreme caution is recommended for explorers wearing
steel-plated armor in close proximity to this fearsome creature.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Use the rocks as a weapon against other enemies in the immediate area. Then
toss some Pikmin on it. Watch out for its rocks because they follow your
current captain. Just make sure to move your Pikmin out of the way and keep it
up until it dies.



***#17***

Puffy Blowhog

Treasure value:
none (blows away when health reaches zero)

Looks like a Purple and Blue striped balloon with spikes on its back. Two
fish-like fins come of its sides. And a long snout, which it uses to
blow puffs of air at you. It also flies through the air. Not deadly, but
annoying to the armies of Pikmin you have. You will be taken down if you don't
have the special shoes

-Puffy Blowhog

Sus inflata

Blowhog family

This species of blowhog uses internally generated hydrogen to inflate a
flotation bladder and hover above the ground. The creature's electrified pulse
creates a sash of color that flows along the surface of its body, making it a
particularly beautiful blowhog species. Precisely how it is able to internally
stabilize its highly explosive hydrogen and simultaneously generate
electricity remains a mystery. The puffy blowhog blows leaves and grass around
to eat the insects underneath.  It maintains midair buoyancy by using its fins
and releasing air through blowholes. This enables it to float effortlessly,
even in the breeze. In times of danger, the puffy blowhog can decompress its
flotation bladder for a rapid escaped from predators.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Grab some yellows for this guy. They are not necessary but are better to 
get on it. It will try and blow them away so be quick when confronting it.
It is easy to kill once you get some Pikmin on. They will be thrown off but
you simply need to whistle them in and toss them up again. Simple.




***#18***

Withering Blowhog

Treasure Value:
none(blows away when health reaches zero)

To me it looks like a flying Fiery/Watery Blowhog without feet. It is an
orange color and if you look closely it has a flame design on it. It has no
bodily marks accept the fins and long snout. Beware for it too will blow of
the flowers on your Pikmin and leave them as leaves blowing in the wind.

-Withering Blowhog

Sus decreptia

Blowhog family

The withering blowhog is a close relative of the puffy blowhog, but its breath
is significantly weaker. However, its breath does contain a petal withering
plant hormone that causes flowers to instantly lose their petals. Although its
breath has not been studied in detail, analysis of the chemical compounds
involved hold great promise for the biotechnology sector.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
EXCATLY THE SAME AS THE PUFFY BLOWHOG!!!!! Except his air blasts will ruin
their flowers and revert them to leaves. So be careful if you want to keep
your perfect flower army.



***#19***

Gatling Groink

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

It looks like a basketball with a glass mask and a fishtail. There is a pair of
chimney stacks that have smoke coming out of them.  Also when he is attacking
a cannon comes out of the mask and fires a bomb that whistles loudly. Its
round body is held up by two scrawny legs.

-Gatling Groink

Megaplod calibersi

Unknown family

This beastly predator's aggressive ejection of high-speed projectiles makes it
one of the most fearsome creatures in the ecosystem. Its body seems to
comprise of both biological and mechanical components, and represents one of
the most evolutionarily advanced specimens ever observed. The chamber within
its torso gives it rapid-fire bio-pellet launch capabilities. What appears to
be a tail fin is in fact the base if its counterweight and ammunition cylinder,
so immobilizing this appendage will prevent the groink from attacking...at
least in theory. Confirmation of this suspicion remains elusive, as nobody has
volunteered to test it.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy can be either dangerous or simple. If you attack it head on you
are almost guaranteed to lose some Pikmin. Wait for it to attack and then run
in and instruct your army to attack. He will eventually wiggle them off and
try to clobber them with his guns. Once he is defeated, hurry and bring him
back to your ship before it revives itself.



***#20***

Iridescent Flint Beetle

Treasure Value:
none(it has no health, but it will give you red, purple, or gold nectars if a
Pikmin is thrown directly on top of it. Then will disappear eventually)

The flint beetle looks like a small oval gem. With a shiny blue-green color.
There are also four small legs that move it around quickly and two antennae.

-Iridescent Flint Beetle

Pilli envelopens

Flint Beetle family

-Flint beetles are nocturnal, choosing to hide in the grass by day and stay
active at night. These creatures keep undigested food pellets in their
stomachs to sustain them through winter, but given the right stimulus they
will spit them out. Recent research has revealed that these pellets are
enveloped in a membrane that seals and preserves them in a sterile, airtight
environment. If kept at room temperature, it seems that this pellet membrane
will keep for up to six months. The membrane may be made from the same
substances that gives the exoskeleton of the flint beetle its beautiful sheen.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
You can't kill it. It doesn't attack you. All you can do is get stuff from
it. Just toss a Pikmin on top of it and it will flip over.



***#21***

Iridescent Glint Beetle

Treasure Value:
none (it has no health, but it will give you red, purple, or gold nectars if a
Pikmin is thrown directly on top of it. It may even have a Treasure in some
places. Then will disappear eventually)

It looks like the Flint Beetle except it is a sparkling Golden color all over
its body. And the ends of its antennae are red.

-Iridescent Glint Beetle

Pilli auricus

Glint Beetle family

This variety of beetle consumes subterranean materials. Due to the fact that it
rarely emerges above ground, sightings of this particular species are
extremely rare. While minerals are this beast's primary source of food, the
beetle itself does not have the ability to digest these minerals. Instead,
metabacteria living inside the beetle's stomach chemically break down the
minerals. The resulting purifies metal is discharged, but rare metals such as
gold and platinum crystallize onto the iridescent glint beetle's shell,
resulting in the beautiful laminated shimmer.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
You can't attack this guy. Good thing he doesn't attack you either. Just
toss a Pikmin on it and you will get something good!



***#22***

Doodlebug

Treasure Value:
none(it has no health, but it will give you red, purple, or gold nectars if a
Pikmin is thrown directly on top of it. It will disappear eventually)

The Doodlebug looks like a brown Flint Beetle with flies flying around it.
Beware of the gas it farts out, for if your Pikmin aren't White ones. Then
they will be inflicted by poison. The Doodlebug seems to stay above ground
longer than any other flint beetle.

-Doodlebug

Pilli flatularum

Flint Bug family

While life-forms that excrete foul musk to warn of danger are not rare, the
doodlebug is the only species known to release flatulence when active above
ground. Interestingly enough, since it is merely releasing the gas created by
decay of the contents of the creature's intestines, it does not have a special
musk-producing organ. This means the creature is in fact merely flatulating.
Spectral analysis of the rank gas indicates it contains not only methane, but
hydrogen sulfide as well, making the flatulence a Grade XIII biohazard.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
You cannot kill it....only problem is that IT CAN KILL YOUR PIKMIN! Be
careful when using any non-white Pikmin around it.



***#23***

Female Sheargrub

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

Simply put, they are little pink blobs that wiggle around on the ground.
They are a minor threat to your Pikmin.

-Sheargrub (Female)

Himeagea mandibulosa

Mandiblard family

The males of this species are purple and black with tapered mouths, while the
females are lighter in color and lack an armored exoskeleton. As with most
mandiblards, these creatures have regressed to the point where they have lost
both legs and wings. They can be seen crawling around on the ground and are
believed to feed on the vegetable extracts from the congealed fluids of
expired Pikmin.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
It is utterly defenseless. It doesn't attack you. SO lets leave it be.
Yeah right! Attack its defenseless state with any amount of Pikmin you choose.



***#24***

Male Sheargrub

Treasured Value:
2 Pokos

Little blobs with purple and blue coloring. And also tow little jaw-like
things coming out in front of them.

-Sheargrub (Male)

Himeagea mandibulosa

Mandiblard family

This specimen is a male sheargrub. Having lost both legs and wings, the male
burrows into the sol and waits to ambush small creatures that pass by. This
beast's mandibles can be dangerous, making creatures such as Pikmin easy prey.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy attacks you, but he’s not very strong. It only eats one Pikmin at a
time and takes 2-3 seconds to kill it. Just swarm it with 10 Pikmin because it
is usually in a group of 2-3.



***#25***

Shear wig

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

A small green bug with rounded jaw-like things. It also flies into the air at
times to avoid being killed......too bad you have yellow Pikmin.

-Shear wig

Himeagea votaries

Mandiblard family

Unusual for their genus, flying mandiblards have retained their wings. However,
only the adult males of this species can fly. Females of this species spend
most of their life span underground. They do emerge for a period after
maturation to spawn, but never metamorphose.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
They may be able to fly. But they only use it for their own protection.
They are just like the Male Sheargrubs. They stay in groups for "protection"



***#26***

Cloaking Burrow-nit

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

When it is still, all you can see is a blue shell with two big red eye-like
things. And when he is out of the ground he has the blue face on his back and
his true face is white and plain with needles on it. He uses his needles to 
grab Pikmin(which kind of look like his lips). Watch out for wonder lips!

-Cloaking Burrow-nit

Trilobitins reclusiva

Birrow-nit family

The snake-eye pattern on this beast's shell is one of the most distinctive
features of the burrow-nit family. The red pattern of the cloaking burrow-nit
and the spikes around its mantle make it easily identifiale while still making
it a representative specimen of the burrow-nit family. The shell on the 
cloaking burrow-nit's back also provides a frame that fixes its muscular
structure in place, and appears to give the creature its powerful
needle-launching attack.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
The Burrow-nit comes out of the ground but needs to turn around most of the
time. So use that time to move your Pikmin onto it and take off a nice bit
of its health.  Once it shakes them off whistle them to you and swarm them
over it again. Doing this will prevent you from losing any Pikmin to its
weird tongue thing.



***#27***

Ravenous Whiskerpillar

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

These things look like grubs with orange heads. They also feed on the flowers
that produce fruits that you use to make sour and bittersweet juices.

-Ravenous Whiskerpillar

Lepidtera pluckieus

Whiskerpillar family

As these species of insects has only recently been discovered, fully mature
specimens have yet to be collected. No molting or metamorphosis has been
observed during the observation period, making it unlikely that mature
whiskerpillars will be encountered anytime soon. Based on active predation by
Pikmin, it is believed that the whiskerpillar's place in the food chain has not
changed over time.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys pose no threat to you because they only want the flower fruits that
make potions for you. If you never destroy those weird spider web-like things
you may never even meet one. If they are up on one of the flowers, just send
some Pikmin up after it and it will fall off. Then just attack it and there
you go.




***#28***

Anode Beetle

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

These things are ladybugs with black shells instead of red. And the spots
are yellow.  They generate electricity that connects any two that are close
enough to each other. You can only hurt them if you flip them over first.

-Anode Beetle

Scarabum electrodea

Scarab Beetle family

This specimen is representative of an insect hybrid that uses electricity in
addition to glycogen for its energy. Although difficult to confirm due to
their microscopic size, tiny hairs on the creature's legs cause the friction
that generates the electrical charge. The electrical charge is processed by
the creature's internal machina battery structure, and then stored as a deus
electrifical field. As this field reaches critical levels, surplus electricity
is emitted between specimens. It can shock other creatures in the immediate
vicinity. Considering this process, it can be surmised that the largest
impetus to oack behavior is not so much for synergic effect of producing as a
pack as it is to take advantage of this most effective means of group
preservation.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
I suggest bringing in yellow Pikmin for this part. They are immune to
electricity. The Anode Beetle doesn't attack you directly but when one or more
are around they send currents of electricity to one another. Throw a yellow
Pikmin on it to turn it over, and then just move your Pikmin to attack it.



***#29***

Mitite

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

They are always in groups of multiple numbers. They are ball shaped and are
white in color. There are also a few legs coming out of it. They scare Pikmin
whenever they are around. Not dangerous, just annoying.

-Mitite

Mitivius infiltratus

Unknown family

These parasitic insects feed on eggs. Upon reaching maturity, they excrete a
special pheromone that attracts females of particular species, enticing these
females to swallow the mitites whole. (Pikmin, however, seem to dislike the
scent.) After entering the host female's body, the mitites lay their own eggs
inside the host's eggs just prior to the host spawning.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These can be hard and easy to defeat at the same time. When they appear your
Pikmin will freak out. Just whistle them to you and toss them. If they land
on one of the Mitites they will die. Purple Pikmin are good for multiple
kills.



***#30***

Hermit Crawmad

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

Imagine a lobster. Thats what it looks like, Except the bottom half of the
Crawmad is mostly inside its hole under lured out with a Captain or the
Pikmin. Revealing its white bottom side.

-Hermit Crawmad

Camabarus rustica

Crawmad family

Looking at the eyes and sickle-shaped legs characteristic of squillas, one
would think this is a squilla relative. In fact, it is a relative of the
hermit crab. This species, however, has migrated from seaside life in a shell
and instead inhabits burrows in the ground. While its legs appear sickle-like,
they are pincers that have evolved into a fin shape. This beast feeds on small
creatures that pass by its lair, dragging them inside to eat them.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Easy fight. Lure it out by walking in front of its view. Once it screeches
move out of the way. That is when you attack its weak piont, the fleshy part
that was hidden before. When he wiggles them of whistl then to you and wait
for him to strike at you again from hiw hole. Repeat.



***#31***

Swooping Snitchbug

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

This bug flies into the air and grabs Pikmin then tosses them back into the
ground. They do not kill the Pikmin though. They have two small rapidly
flapping antennae and two long lanky arms.

-Swooping Snitchbug

Scarpanica kesperens

Scarpanid family

The scarpanids originally lived on the ground, sporting poorly developed
vestigal wings. This species developed enlarged antennae that can be used as
makeshift wings. Scarpanids are attracted by the sight of large groups of
Pikmin in cavalry formation and will swoop down to seize them. However,
scarpanids do not eat Pikmin, and they will drop any seized Pikmin after a
short time. The reason for this behavior is unknown, but I look forward to
future research in the area.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
DO not fear of losing Pikmin to this thing, he only re-plants them. Wait for
him to grab some of your Pikmin and either move out of the way or let him get
them. Once he starts moving back up then throw your Pikmin (preferably Yellow)
on him. THey should make him fall adn thats when you have all your Pikmin
attack.



***#32***

Bumbling Snitchbug

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

This thing is a blob of fat with two large antennae coming out of it. Also
has large Lanky arms. But this time the Captains must be careful, they will
pick them up and throw them down for some damage!

-Bumbling Snitchbug

Scarpanica doofenia

Scarpanid family

This is a variety of snitchbug. Its most interesting characteristic is that
it likes to snitch leaders. Yet barring wanton carelessness or incompetence,
leaders are not easily captures. Any leader caught by this creature is clearly
an idiot, which is why this creature is also known as the exposing snitchbug.
There are several known varieties of snitchbugs, but research has stagnated
despite it being such an interesting species.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Just as you did for the Swooping Snitchbug, let it try to grab, this time your
captain. THrow Pikmin on it and he will also fall. After that he is done for.



***#33***

Careening Dirigubug

Treasure Value:
4 Pokos

Balloons float over this creature which hold up his greenish body. The arms
are long so as to carry the bombs it creates. @_@ So watch out when using 
large groups of Pikmin around them.

-Careening Dirigibug

Flotillum circusmaximus

Dirigibug family

This creature floats effortlessly through the air using gas-filled balloons.
Both its appearance and its nature are antagonistic. And it is the only
variant of its species in this ecosystem. It may be best to consider the
possibility that it somehow wandered into this ecosystem from an entirely
alien one. Positive proof does not exist at this point, but that is how the
creature is current;y classified.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Be very careful of this guys bombs. Once he drops one. RUn away and wait for
it to blow up. Then run in and throw as many Pikmin on it as possible. Its
balloons will pop and thats when you strike hard with the rest of your Pikmin.
Keep throwing Pikmin on him and he shouldn't be able to get out another bomb.



***#34***

Antenna Beetle

Treasure Value:
5 Pokos

Grasshopers is what you might think of when you see them. They jump very high
and have long legs. THey make a weird circle around them that makes all Pikmin
within the circle to follow the Antenna Beetle without attacking it.  Also
they mess up the treasure radar.

-Antenna Beetle

Mesmeri raiocontra

Kettlebug family

THis creature is able to control the Pikmin by way of the peculiar frequency
of its roar, but its only objective seems to be defensive in nature, as it
it stops Pikmin from attacking and forces them to run away. This beast prefers
humid, dimly lit environments, and has been known to inhabut empty and
discarded containers. For this reason, it's wise to thoroughly ventilate any
specimens that are recovered. Lifting off with one of these creatures in the
hold can lead to a rupturing of the specimen during decompression, resulting
in an explosive mess.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This one is annoying to kill. It will try to makes your Pikmin randomly
follow it for no reason. When he falls down, or trip, move all your Pikmin to
attack him. He will jump and your Pikmin will fall off, but they won't die.
Just keep repeating this until it dies.



***#35***

Lesser Spotted Jelly Float

Treasure Value:
none (it dissapears when its health reaches zero)

It is basically a giant Blue Jellyfish. It sucks up your Pikmin into its body
and you will then have a short amount of time before it is killed.

-Lesser Spotted Jellyfloat

Cephalus dottalium

Jellyfloat family

This native jellyfloat is indigenous to the region. Unfortunately, it is
currently endangered, as its habitat is being overwhelmed by hostile
immigrant species.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
When it squishes up, move back a little so it doesn't suck up any of your
Pikmin. Then toss some Yellows on top of it. When it falls down, whistle
your Pikmin off and immediately throw them back on. This prevents them from
being tossed of and prevent the jelly to stay up. Keep repeating that process
and it should die after 3-4 times of doing that.



***#36***

Greater Spotted Jellyfloat

Treasure Value:
none (it dissapears when its health reaches zero)

An even bigger Jellyfish with a Purple tint to it But in the darker areas
it turns dark blue with purple spots.  Not only does it suck up your Pikmin.
But it may suck your Captain up as well!

-Greater Spotted Jellyfloat

Cephalus vortexia

Jellyfloat family

Vivid pink coloration is the most noticeable characteristic of this floating
life form. This immagrant species is not native to the region, having appeared
to have recently arrived on wind currents. The luminescent organ in its head
attracts prey, which it then sucks up and consumes with its lower orifice.
Unlike jellyfish, the jellyfloat's tentacles do not have nematocysts, so there
is no danger of touching them.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
When it squishes itself you should move pretty far back, not only does it
suck up your Pikmin but also your captain at times! Just throw Pikmin onto it
and it should go down easily.



***#37***

Fiery Dweevil

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

They are four legged spiders with two scoop-like hands in front of it. When in
danger, it produces fire to kill any non-red Pikmin near it.

-Fiery Dweevil

Mandarahnia napalmens

Dweevil family

Members of the dweevil family are known for carrying objects of astounding
size on their backs, then mimicking them. The fiery dweevil is one species in
this family. Generally, this is a very gentle insect that feeds on grass
nectars, but when faced with danger the fiery dweevil ignites flammable
internal gasses, juts out its jaw, and spews scorching flames. As this is
clearly makes it a rather dangerous insect, it is best not to linger directly
in front of it.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Any type of Pikmin can take this down, but to be safe bring reds. Throw them
onto the dweevil because they cannot attack from the ground. He uses a fire
attack that won't affect reds. If they pick up something just throw Pikmin
on it the item will fall off.



***#38***

Anode Dweevil

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

Looks exactly like its fiery brother. Except it is yellow, and makes a current
of electricity hit its enemies.

-Anode Dweevil

Mandarachnia volticula

Dweevil family

Members of the dweevil family are known for carrying objects of astounding
size in their backs and mimicking them. The anode dweevil is one species in
this family. They seem to have no particular preference for which objects they
carry on their backs, as they will carry anything they can lift. They boast an
internal organ that generates electrical charges, which the anode dweevil
releases when it senses danger.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Yellow Piks for this guy. He uses electricity to attack. Throw them on it and
it should go down easily.



***#39***

Caustic Dweevil

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

Again, a Dweevil. But this one is of the blue variety! It will make water come
out under it to ensure its safety.

-Caustic Dweevil

Mandarachnia sulfurnid

Dweevil family

The caustic dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking
objects by carrying them on their backs. Several points of differentiation
with other members of the species have been confirmed, such as body color
and behavioral patterns, but none of these suggest major deviations in the
creature's genetic structure. This makes it clear that it is a relative of
the family. When attacked by enemies, the caustic dweevil spits out bodily
fluids in response. Space suits corrode and oxidize when they come in contact
with this highly acidic fluid.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Try to use Blue Piks against this version of dweevil. Watch out for its water
jets if you don't have Blues only. Again, just throw Pikmin on it and it will
die soon enough.



***#40***

Munge Dweevil

Treasure Value:
2 Pokos

Yet another Dweevil. Now you get to meet the purple one!! This one uses poison
in defense.

-Munge Dweevil

Mandarachnia pungetis

Dweevil family

The munge dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking
objects by carrying them on their backs. These insects often carry the
carcasses of other life-forms on their backs, but apparently this is not for
the purpose of transporting them as food, but instead is another example of
their mimic behavior. The munge dweevil produces two different chemical 
compounds within its body, which form poisonous gas when mixed and expelled.
This gas is used only for self-defense.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Now its the Whites turn to take on a dweevil! Poison is this dweevils weapon
of choice. Once AGAIN just toss Pikmin on it and it will go down. These are
getting boring huh?



***#41***

Volatile Dweevil

Treasure Value:
none (it explodes once its health reaches zero)

Another Dweevil, but this one is quite different. It has long spiney legs.
With a bomb in the middle! Once it drops just run away. Even if you hit it
you are just quickening your own demise. The Volatile Dweevil blows up when
its health reaches zero, no matter how it gets their.

-Volatile Dweevil

Mandarachnia explodus

Dweevil family

The volatile Dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking
objects by carrying them on their backs. The dweevil family exhibits a most
unusual characteristic whereby the creature's behavioral patterns actually
change based upon the object the creature carries on its back. The volatile
dweevil has one of the most potent attacks of all species in within the dweevil
family, due to its habit of carrying explosive devices. Approach with caution
and/or body armor!

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
You really don't want to beat him while near him. Say what? You might ask.
Well, when the Volatile Dweevil's health is zero it explodes. So basically
just run up, hit it, and get the heck out of there. Job done.



***#42***

Toady Bloyster

Treasure Value:
10 Pokos

These guys are pinkish slugs. At the end the rear of them they have a tail
with a ball-like object on it. That is what you attack. And they only attack
once a captain is in front of them.

-Toady Bloyster

Molluschid minionicus

Mollusking family

This species of creatures has yet to fully evolve from shelled mollusk to the
more advanced bloyster, this creature is significantly smaller. The fact that
its mandibles do not protrude as significantly as the ranging bloyster is due
in partto the fact that like most mollusks, its vital organs are located deep
within the creature's carapace.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Simple strategy, just run around it and throw Pikmin on the ball on its tail.
Make sure not to get to close in front of it with your captain or else it will
attack everything directly in front of it and to the frontal left and right
sides.



***#43***

Yellow Wollywog

Treasure alue:
5 Pokos

A tall frog. The top of its head is green, most of its body is yellow, and its
bottom area is green. IT has small arms and legs. But it can jump high and 
flatten your Pikmin.

-Yellow Wollywog

Amphicaris frodendum

Amphituber family

This magnificent specimen has the brightest gold coloration and the greatest
number of lateral spots of any member in the amphituber family. This species
seems to have lost some swimming proficiency with the evolutionary adaptation
that granted it greater jumping ability. The amphituber inhabits aquatic
shallows and shows an instinctive drive to jump upon and squash smaller
creatures.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Walk near to the Wollywog. When it jumps, move out from under the shadow and
wait for it to fall. Then throw all your Pikmin on top of it. It will struggle
for a while, then will throw all of your Pikmin off. Whistle them back and wait
for it to jump again. Then throw them on top of it again.



***#44***

Wollywog

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

This wollywog looks like the average frog size. It is pale white with red
hands, feet, and eyes. They can jump up and squish your innocent Pikmin.

-Wollywog

Amphicaris albino

Amphituber family

It is believed that juvenile wollywogs were once carried by underground
currents into caverns, where they thrived in the dark habitat. This
troglodytic species of wollywog's coloration results from generations of
cave dwelling and lack of sunlight. Comparative differences between the size
and shape of this wollywog and other species are thought to be the results of
natural selection at work, choosing traits better suited to life in a
subterranean environment.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy is no different than the Yellow Wollywog except it is a little
quicker than normal. Simply wait for it to jump and then stay from the shadow.
After it falls toss your Pikmin onto it.



***#45***

Wogpole

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

They are tadpoles that swim very fast when you or your Pikmin get to close. If
a Pikmin happens to be able to get onto a Wogpole then they will slap them of
with their tails.

-Wogpole

Amphicaris frodendum

Amphituber family

The wollywog spawns in early spring, laying its eggs on low-hanging tree
branches and shrubs growing in or near lakes and ponds. Such unorthodox
amphibious behavior is a defense mechanism, protecting the eggs from predation
by blue Pikmin and water dumples. The wollywog's wild hopping near the
shoreline in early spring is thought to be a method of driving predators away
from the wogpole eggs.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys can be very annoying to even get near. But what you need to do is
run towards it, and throw a Blue Pikmin at it. It will land close to it and
follow it wherever it goes. Eventually it will kill it.

Creeping Chrysanthemum

Treasure Value:
7 Pokos

When far away, the creature is merely another plant on the ground. But when
you get right next to it it pops out and it is a giant green plant ball. On
top of the long stem above it is a giant mouth used to grab Pikmin. If it
misses then it will fall over.

-Creeping Chrysanthemum

Taraxacum rovinia

Chrysanthemum family

Like Pikmin, the creeping chrysanthemum is a member of a group of creatures
with ambulatory root structures. This creature is known as a "mimic," but
because it is actually a form of plant, this label is not entirely accurate.
For unknown reasons, the creeping chrysanthemum's mimicry does not fool
Pikmin, perhaps because they share a similar heritage. It relies on preying
upon other creatures to provide sustenance, so it has no need of leaves for
photosynthesis. Generally speaking, the role of plants within an ecosystem is
as a producer species, and thus plants are generally found at the bottom of
the food pyramid. However, on this strange planet the line between producer
plants and consumer plants is blurred.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Ok, start by walking close to the flower with eyes. Then right as you get near
run away so that it doesn't stun you or your Pikmin when it reveals itself.
Run up to it and bait it to snap at you. Run back and it should bite itself
and fall over. That is your chance to strike! Throw or move your Piks to it
and wait for it to start getting up. Once it does whistle them back and bait
it again. It will bite itself again and you can finish it off.



***#53***

Skitter Leaf

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

A leaf lying on the ground right? WRONG! They are actually a monster that has
a leaf camoflauge.

-Skitter Leaf

Rus pseudoarbicans

Skitterling family

The skitter leaf is a relative of the pond skater that shed its wings and
adapted to life on the ground. With no residual traits of its airborne past,
the skitter leaf can naither fly nor skit across the surface of the water.
The wings have since evolved into the leaflike structure on its back, which
serves to hide the skitter leaf through mimicry. It appears quite effective,
as few predators can see through this clever disguise.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
These guys don't put up much of a fight. Start by swarming one or two with
your Pikmin. It will raise its leaf, which is your cue to whistle your Piks
back. It will wave its feather to blow away any Pikmin near it. Once it sets
back down you can swarm it again.



***#54***

Unmarked Spectralids

Treasure Value:
1 Poko

Butterflies of different colors. Mostly yellow, but can be red or even blue.

-Unmarked Spectralids

Fenestari prismatus

Flitterbie family

When strolling through the forest of this planet, clouds of there creatures
are seen dancing overhead. Like flower petels drifting in the breeze, the
sight of flitterbies dancing in the lush green undergrowth is unforgettable.
Flitterbie collectors drool over specimen sample boxes lined up with in order,
highlighting the slight color gradation changes from blue to red to yellow.
Such items fetch particularly high prices at auctions.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
The only thing you need to do is throw your Pikmin into a group of these
creatures. You will kill some of them.



***#55***

Honeywisp

Treasure Value:
none(it dissapears once you hit it, you only get a drop of nectar)

This thing is weird looking. It looks like a flying fish with a bag
underneath it. If you hit it it will drop the bag which will have a drop of
nectar.

-Honeywisp

Nektara fatuus

Honeywisp family

This floating life-form drifts effortlessly on the winds. Upon death, its
physical structure instantly collapses, and as the creature is partucularly
elusive and difficult to catch, no sample specimens have been acquired as
of yet. If we could simply recover a live sample, research on this species
would likely proceed more smoothly...

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Just throw one Pikmin at it and it will drop its nectar. Yay for flower Piks!



***#56***

Mamuta

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

At first glance it looks like a stone, but as you get closer you will see
that it has two eyes and thin arms. The ends of its arms are flattened. It
doesn't kill your Pikmin, but it will re plant them. Which is a good way to
evolve your leaves to flowers.

-Mamuta

Unknown

Unknown family

The imbalanced, asymmetrical arms of the mamuta are among its most notable
features. Feeding on seeds and fruit, the mamuta is known to actually sow and
grow plant species. While other species have exhibited seed-burying behavior
for the purpose of storage, the mamuta is the only species so far known to
actually cultivate fields of plants.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
First get its attention by getting near it. Once it starts running at you,
retreat. It will start walking back and that’s when you toss some Pikmin at it,
preferably leaf ones. Once it slaps then off start throwing the rest of your
Pikmin on it. It will be busy planting your other ones to get the others off
for now. Once it plants your first wave. Whistle the others back and repeat
the process. This one may take a little longer than most enemies. 



***#57***

Breadbug

Treasure Value:
3 Pokos

This thing looks like a "rolly polly". It is very annoying to have this guy
around. He will grab anything that is either dead or just lying around and
take it to its hole. The only thing you can get back from it are treasures. But
if you use a lot of Pikmin then you will drag the breadbug back to the onions
or the underground ship and it will be damaged. Also throwing Pikmin on top of
them hurts them.

-Breadbug

Pansarus gluttonae

Breadbug family

The adult breadbug competes for many of the same food sources as Pikmin, but
its thick-skinned hide allows it to withstand most Pikmin group attacks.
However, some researchers claim to have observed breadbugs being overwhelmed
by massive numbers of Pikmin and reduced to food.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This is an easy battle. Just kill anything around you. Once the breadbug grabs
it and starts pulling it away, put as many Pikmin as you can onto the item.
You will drag the Breadbug to your ship and it will be sucked up to it. This
will take a good chunk out of its HP. It will still be alive so you must kill
another monster. Then drag the Breadbug again. This time it should be killed.

SO TREASURE VALUES AND BATTLE STRATEGIES WILL NOT BE LISTED ON THIS PART!!!



***#46***

Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud

It is a five petaled flowered the lovely color of blue. When any type of
Pikmin is thrown in, a Pikmin of the color of the flower will be planted in
its place!

-Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud

Flora cobaltium

Candypop family

No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits
out the same number of blue Pikmin. This family of plant boasts soft, fleshy
leaves, the sinewy tendrils of which allow the flower to open and close
repeatedly over the course of a day.



***#47***

Crimson Candypop Bud

I love the word crimson don't you? Anyways this is another Candypop that is
the color red. And it will give you red Pikmin in place of whatever type you
put into it.

-Crimson Candypop Bud

Flora rufusia

Candypop family


No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits
out the same number of red Pikmin seeds. The Pikmin, the candypop flowers, and
the Pikmin Onions are not easily explained by current theories of the
xenobotanical sciences, and thus have not yet been appropriately studied and
classified.



***#48***

Golden Candypop Bud

Yet another Pikmin Candypop, yet it is yellow. Whatever the Pikmin put in. A
yellow is sure to be given.

-Golden Candypop Bud

Flora aurumia

Candypop family

No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits
out the same number of yellow Pikmin seeds. Current research has yet to
produce any theories as to precisely what kind of interaction causes the
Pikmin to change color to match the color of this flower's petals.



***#49***

Violet Candypop Bud

YAY! Another Candypop Bud!! This one is purple!! HOORAY! Come get one Purple
Pikmin for any trade-in!!!!

-Violet Candypop Bud

Flora puniceus

Candypop family

Research from our most recent expedition has confirmed the pesence of candypop
buds in subterranean regions. Considering the micro-ecologies this plant has
been found in, one could surmise that it could be found in any cavern,
regardless of geographic region. Tossing Pikmin into this flower results in
the release of Purple Pikmin seeds, regardless of the color of the Pikmin
tossed in. This variety of candypop contains robustly odorferous oils. If
candypop flowers could be cultivated, there is no doubt that the plants would
offer multifaceted benefits to the cosmetic, medical, and tourist industries.



***#50***

Ivory Candypop Bud

*yawn* yeah yeah yeah....another one. This one gives out white Pikmin when any
other type is thrown in.

-Ivory Candypop Bud

Flora niveus

Candypop family

Research from our most recent expedition has confirmed the pesence of candypop
buds in subterranean regions. Considering the micro-ecologies this plant has
been found in, one could surmise that it could be found in any cavern,
regardless of geographic region. Tossing Pikmin into this flower results in
the release of White Pikmin seeds, regardless of the color of the Pikmin
tossed in. In many cases, plants with small leaves typically have limited
photosynthetic capabilities, and thus must find alternate means of obtaining
nutrients, with parasitic and predatory behavior being most common. The 
candypop could be considered one such example.



***#51***

Queen Candypop Bud

This candypop is pretty useful. If you toss any type of Pikmin in, nine Pikmin
of the color the flower is at the time will pop out.

-Queen Candypop Bud

Flora regina

Candypop family

Thius specimen constantly changes colors. When Pikmin are thrown into it, it
shoots out seeds that match the flower's coloration the moment the Pikmin
landed inside of it. The number of seeds shot out is always greater than the
number of Pikmin thrown in. It can be said that this is a completely baffling
plant, and many mysteries remain over precisely what sort os relationship it
has with the Pikmin. It would appear that the Pikmin gain all of the benefit
from the relationship... Perhaps it is simply a different variety of Pikmin to
begin with?



***#58***

Pellet Posy

They look like flowers but they hold Pikmin pellets in their centers. ATTACK 
AND GET THOSE PELLETS!!!!

-Pellet Posy

Amplus nutrio

Pellet Weed family

In the stem of the pellet posy one can observe the muscle fiber unique to
half-plant, half-animal species such as thePikmin and candypop flowers, so the
pellet posy is a species that can be considered a close relative. Although the
ability to crystallize nectar is unique to a small group of the pellet weed
family, the fact that these plants reach maturity so quickly and that their
pellets contain such high concentratons of the natural nutrients in the soil
explains why the Pikmin and so many other indigenous species are so reliant on
these pellets for sustenance.



***#59***

Common Glowcap

The Pikmin version of the street lamp. Tall thin mushrooms that glow.

-Common Glowcap

Fungi luminarium

Glowcap family

The light emitted from this rare mushroom is neither a reflection, nor a
release of stored light. It grows not only on decomposing trees, but also on
soil and rocks. This mushroom's fungal filaments are capable of stabalizing
and concentrating pure Hocotatium 111. It is none other than the Hocotatium
111 approaching the point of critical mass that causes the glowcap's blue
luminescence.



***#60***

Clover

A nice ordinary clover that towers over you. Nothing special.

-Clover

Quattrius infectum

Clover family

This is a naturalized species. These plants are extremely persistent, and with
the assistance of a symbiotic fungus that grows on its roots, the species is
able to survive even in drought conditions. Typically its leaves come in
groupings of three, but intense impact on the leafing stem early in the
development cycle can result in an extremely rare four-leaf cluster.



***#61***

Figwort

Just an ordinary bunch of red flowers which turn blue at night. They are on
long stems and have a few leaves on them.

-Figwort

Scrophularia xenomium

Figwort family

This plant offers an excellent example of a non-native species introduced into
the ecosystem by some unknown method. Upon introduction, it quickly
established a foothold and adapted to the new habit. This plant's distinct
flowers usually exhibit a stuning blue color in early spring, but recently
fieldwork has recorded specimens displaying a deep red hue. Although this may
represent a sudden deviation in genetics of the species, the red coloration is
much more likely an anomaly. Additional readings suggest no significant
atmospheric or solar radiation changes have occured in the ecosystem, leaving
open the possibility that soil composition and mineral deposits may have
affected petal coloration.

Dandelion

A beautiful yellow flower with a weed-like plant at its base.

-Dandelion

Taraxacum officinale

Dandelion family

This perennial grows best in locations with full sun exposure. Its flowers
boast countless tiny yellow petals packed together in a head. The species
seems to have as many weedlike variants as petals, so mora detailed research
on these plants would best be left to a botanical research specialist.



***#63***

Seeding Dandelion

Like the Dandelion except that insted of tiny yellow petals it has a bunch of
white flower seeds.

-Seeding Dandelion

Taraxacum ventulus

Dandelion family

It is believed that this plant produces tufted seeds with a parachute-like
arm, which allowsthe seeds to ride gently on the wind. This increases the
distribution range of the plant considerably.



***#64***

Horsetail

Two long stems sticking out of the ground. Brown and slightly lumpy.

-Horsetail

Equestrius vindico

Horsetail family

This variety of horsetail is prevalent in regions with low nutrient content in
the soil. Unlike most other plants, this particular species propagates itself
through the release of spores.



***#65***

Foxtail

You will find this in water. It has a thin stem with a fuzzy "tail" at the
end. There are also long thin leaves on it.

-Foxtail

Vulpes cauda

Foxtail family

This plant remains erect after withering and losing its color, so we can only
hypothesize about the true color of the plant's plumage. However, local soil
analysis indicates trace amounts of dormant seeds, making it not hard to
imagine that the area was thick with these plants in the summer.



***#66***

Glowstem

The are sticks with lights at the ends of them. They come in two colors: Red
and green. You will usually see these in caves.

-Glowstem

Nocturnica illuminati

Glowcap family

Although they are obviously unrelated, the glowstem bears a striking
resemblane to the street lights in Hocotate. It is highly possible that
glowstems could be a relic of some unknown civilization beyond the scope of
our imagination.



***#67***

Margaret

A group of flowers with yellow petals. They resemble daisies in ther own way.

-Margaret

Luminosus croceus

Chrysanthemum family

This plant's delicate yellow flowers often inspire waves of nostalgia, giving
a bittersweet feeling to any who gaze upon them.



***#68***

Fiddlehead

Looks like a normal weed. But it has two spots where the stems curve into
small spiral designs.

-Fiddlehead

Violinae orchestrus

Fern family

At first glance, this plant resembles the spring used un the ship's sub-light
engine. Many of its most primitive characteristics remain intact, including
its habit of spreading through the dispersal os spores.



***#69***

Shoot

A long stem that is pretty tall. Has multiple leaves coming from it.

Unknown

Unknown family

This is a young shoot of some kind, but what kind of tree species does it
belong to? WHat shap will it take when it matures and grows to full height?
Unfortunately, we are only able to obtain information from our portable
scanners on a select few of the countless number of species we've encountered.
But even if our expedition yields only brief observations on the life we
encounter,it will still provide a better understanding of this bizarre planet.

***#70***

Empress Bulbax

Treasure Value:
15 Pokos

A HUGE slug! With a red top with white spots. It has the face of a Bulborb
The "end" of the Empress is and is where the Bulborb Larva come from. When
agitated it will roll around and squish anything in its path.

-Empress Bulbax

Oculus matriarcha

Grub-dog family

Initial observations placed doubt on the capability of the grub-dog family to
support a strong ant or beelike social structure, but recent studies show the
family is capable of such complexity. The egg sac of the largest female
grub-dog within a given range swells to dramatic proportions in response to
environmental changes, such as the sudden depletion of prey species. These
femlaes temporarily take on the role of the pack matsiasch. Also, in pack
formation it has been observed that nearly all males not involved in species
reproduction undergo natural sex changes. The characteristics of such
specimens are quite intriguing indeed.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Ok, for the bosses I will write the strategy in steps:

1.Get all your Pikmin with you.

2.Kill any of the Bulborb Larva near you and on the way to the front of the
Empress

3.Throw As many Pikmin as you can onto the Empress until she starts to shake.

4.By the second shake whistle your Pikmin back to you. 

*******DEPENDING ON WHICH VERSION YOU ARE ON YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TO DODGE
ROCKS!!!!*******

5.Anyways, she will flatten any Larvae that were chasing you when she rolls
around. So don't worry about those.

6.Once she stops rolling throw your Pikmin onto her face again.

7. REPEAT STEPS 3-6 UNTIL SHE IS DEAD!



***#71***

Burrowing Snagret

Treasure Value:
10 Pokos

This thing pops out of the ground and looks like a snake.......except with a
bird head!! It will snatch up any Pikmin in front of it very swiftly.

-Burrowing Snagret

Shiropedes anacondii

Snavian family

The majority of  snagret species lie in wait to ambush and capture prey, with
a body type perfectly adapted to such sudden strikes. It violently attacks
small, surface dwelling insects. Distributed across a relatively wide range,
subspecies of snagret suited to the varying soil conditions have emerged,
making the snagret the most geographically represented species besides the
bulborb. Visually resembling the burrowing snagret is the burrowing snarrow,
the range of which partially overlaps with the snagret's range. While the two
may appear similar, when pulled from the ground they can be distinguished by
the presence or absence of tail and wing markings.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
Prepare for the easiest boss battle of the game.

1.Grab 15-20 Pikmin, leave the rest near the edges.

2.Walk into the center of the area. If the Snagret comes out so that he is
very high above you, run back to the edge.

3.If not, and he is low to the ground, then toss the Pikmin you have on him.

4.He will eventually dive back underground and leave you with your Pikmin on
the surface.

5.now repeat steps 2-4 until the Burrowing Snagret is dead.

Like I said......easy.



***#72***

Beady Long Legs

Treasure Value:
none (it basically disintegrates when its health reaches zero)

It is a golden orb with four long legs protruding out of it, which make it very
tall. It stomps around trying to catch any wandering Pikmin of guard.

-Beady Long Legs

Pseudoarachnia armoralis

Arachnorb family

Although this creature is commonly associated with spiders, it is actually the
result of a separate evolutionary line of insectoid creatures. Since the
spherical body section supported by the creature's legs carries most of its
internal organs, there appear to be no other features that would correspond
to a head or abdomen.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This boss does not require you to have Yellow Pikmin, but I found them more
helpful to use than the others.

1.Take your Pikmin (either your Yellows or whatever army you decide) about
10-15 of them. you do not want to big of an army for this one.

2.Once the Beady Long Legs falls down. Stay underneath its head while he
stomps around.

3.It will eventually get tired and slump down. That is when you throw your
Pikmin at its head.

4.When it starts to twist whistle your Pikmin so they don't get scattered.

5.Repeat steps 2-4 until it explodes.

******EVENTUALLY IT WILL START TAKING SHORTER RESTS AND SMP FASTER!!!******



***#73***

Emperor Bulbax

Treasure Value:
15 Pokos

Remember the guy from Pikmin 1? Well he’s baaack! Anyways his back looks like a
mossy rock and his face is large and yellow. His eyes are atop his head on
stalks. When undisturbed, his eyes are the only thing you see. He uses his
large tongue to lick up items to eat them whole! mmmmmm....Pikmin

-Emperor Bulbax

Oculus supremus

Grub-dog family

The largest member of the grub-dog family is normally found buried in the
ground, with only the stalks of its eyes exposed. This camouflage allows the
predator to surprise smaller creatures and use its long, adhesive tongue to
capture prey. The thick hide and angular hump give the organism a distinct
rocklike quality. During the rainy season, moss grows freely on its hump,
making it nearly impossible to distinguish this lethal predator from a stone.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
I was very dissapointed at this battle being so easy after how hard he was
in the first Pikmin. All you need is 10 Purple Pikmin at the most.

1.Head out to the center area and Emperor Bulbax will reveal himself.

2.Walk up to him and he will open his mouth, as if to yawn, run away.

3.He will lick at all areas in the areas in front of him. That is when you run
up to him.

4.Toss all the Purple Pikmin on him and they will make quick work of him.



***#74***

Giant Breadbug

Treasure Value:
10 Pokos

This guy is an enlarged breadbug with a more squarish hide. He does the same
thing as normal breadbugs and steals items lying around, except you need many
more Pikmin to drag him.

-Giant Breadbug

Pansarus gigantus

Breadbug family

This gargantuan species of the greater breadbug family has a torso so
perfectly square that it almost seems like it was formed in a mold. For a
brief period after birth, the giant breadbug competes for food with smaller
breadbugs, but upon reaching maturity it seeks out much larger prey. This is
the primary reason that two species with similar feeding habits can coexist in
the same habitat. Hordes of Pikmin appear to pose the only plausible threat to
this massive creature's life.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy gives the Burrowing Snagret a run for his money in the easiest boss
department. Yellow Pikmin are a must.

1.Take all your Yellow Pikmin and go kill the Anode Beetles around the area
and destroy the generators.

2.The Giant Breadbug will try and steal one of the Anode Beetles.

3.Use as many Pikmin as you can and grab onto the Anode Beetle that it did.

4.It will be dragged to the ship and damaged to half health.

5. Follow it until he grabs another Anode Beetle or other object

6.Overtake him with that to and he will lose the rest of its health at the
ship.



***#75***

Pileated Snagret

Treasure Value:
15 Pokos

Imagine the original Snagret. But now with one leg and a greenish scaly skin
instead of blue. Also its head is red and it has a longer beak. It can pick up
Pikmin three at a time.

-Pileated Snagret

Shiropedes ambulatria

Snavian family

This variety of snagret has the ability to burrow underground and walk above
it. Its earthly red coloration and distinct yellow ear and eye markings make
it immediately recognizable. Despite featuring a chimeralike mergin of serpent
and avian features, the pileated snagret has poor eyesight for a bird, perhaps
due to extended periods spent underground. To compensate for this, its nose
features a thermal-sensing organ common to many snakes, making it a
dangerously effective hunter.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This thing has the same basic strategy as the Burrowing Snagret, except a
little different.

1.Grab a group of Pikmin ranging anywhere from 15-20.

2.Go into the arena and it should pop out of the ground.

3.Just like the Burrowing Snagret, if it is completely above ground, run away
until it goes back underneath.

4.Also, if not then it will only be half revealed and you will not see its
legs. Throw your Pikmin on it then. 

5.Repeat steps 2-4 until it is dead.



***#76***

Man-at-legs

Treasure Value:
none (like the other spider-like bosses, this one disintegrates as well when
it is defeated)

This guy looks like a boiler when below ground. And when it comes to the
surface it looks like a boiler with legs! When it gets attacked, it retracts
with a machine gun.......hehe....

-Man-at-legs

Pseudoarachnia navaronia

Arachnorb family

This species of the arachnorb family fuses with machinery at a crucial point
in the maturation process, giving it the ability to fire energy bursts from
the launcher beneath its orbular torso. However, the man-at-legs itself is not
in control of this weapon. Instead, the mechanical portions of its body
structure appear to automatically acquire and attack targets. The man-at-legs
has a gentle disposition, and as a member of the arachnorbs species, it has no
natural enemies. It is particularly difficult to understand why this species
would develope such awesome offensive capabilities, leading to rumors among
the scientific community that it was the machinery that approached the
arachnorb and proposed the symbiotic relationship.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy requires some planning before hand. Remember that cunning is as
useful as force. >_>

1.First, walk around and looks for any metal structure that you can walk over
but is still fairly high.

2.Walk up to the "boiler" in the center of the room. Man-at-Lags will reveal
itself.

3.Just like Beady, it will rest after walking around for awhile. Throw your
Pikmin at it then.

4.When it starts to twist, whistle you Pikmin to you and run to your area you
picked out before the battle.

5.Man-at-Legs will start shooting a type of gun at you, but it can't hit you
if you are hiding behind your structure.

6.Once he stops firing, usually 3-4 rounds, run back to him and repeat steps
3-5 over and over until it dies.



***#77***

Ranging Bloyster

Treasure Value:
15 Pokos

A giant slug with a Christmas ornament on its tail. It will follow your
captain and attack when you are close. Use Pikmin to attack its ball ornament.
He can eat a lot of Pikmin at once.

-Ranging Bloyster

Molluschid predatoria

Mollusking family

This species of mollusk has shed its shell through the process of evolution.
What appears as a flower-shaped protrusion on its back actually functions as
its gills. The ranging bloyster ensnares small animals with its sticky
tentacles, reels them in, and consumes them. Observers have noted that this
creature exhibits a keen interest in flashing objects. It often tries to
capture and ingest these objects. Researchers and explorers equipped with
flashing identification beacons should be wary when in close proximity to this
dangerous predator.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
My strategy is not very good. you may want to go to another guide to get 
a better one. But here it is anyways.

1.Have all your Pikmin with you.

2.Run up to the Bloyster and its eyes will turn red and it will chase after
you.

3.Simply run around the Bloyster at a close range until you are able to toss
some Pikmin on its tail.

4.It will eventually try to shake them off. Continue to throw Pikmin on it so
it doesn't get the chance to attack you.

5.Repeat steps 2-4 until dead.



***#78***

Waterwraith

Treasure Value:
none (....its water.....it is soaked into the ground once it is destroyed)

This guy is funny looking. It is a watery human-like body. He rolls around on
two cylinder rocks. It also seems to be humming a strange song....
He will rock and roll over any of your Pikmin as he wishes.

-Waterwraith

Amphibio sapiens

Unknown family

All that is known about this creature stems from a few sightings deep
underground. All reported sightings feature the same core sets of details: a
giant, viscous form with a clear, hazy sheen not unlike hard candy. One theory
holds that it may be the ectoplasmic incarnation of a kind of psychic
phenomenon, but as is usually the case with such theories, it is very
difficult to prove. All witnesses report being suddenly overcome with fear
upon sighting the creature, approaching a state of panic and near insanity. In
fact, every report contains an inordinate amount of extremely vague details,
which has led to suspicion that exhaustion and fear have caused some simple
natural phenomenon to be viewed as a living creature.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
For the first few levels of the cave WW is in will have him appear on every
level. But he is invulnerable until the end.

1.When you get to the last level. Prepare your Purple Pikmin and at least 15
others.

2.Once you enter battle with him, throw a Purple Pikmin near him and he will
turn solid.

3.Toss all of your Pikmin you can onto it until it becomes solid again.

4.Kepp repeating this process until his health is depleted.

5.This is not the end though, once he loses all his health his rollers will
dissapear and he will run around.

6.Simply chase it until he gets tired and stops to catch its breath.

7.Thats when you throw a Purple Pikmin. It will become solid and you can
attack it.

8.Repeat steps 5-7 until it dissapears.



***#79***

Segmented Crawbster

Treasure Value:
15 Pokos

The main part of this creature looks like a giant blue lobster. Its head is a
redish color and it has one giant white claw. When it rolls around to attack
you or your Pikmin, it may run into something and its soft, fleshy core will
be exposed.

-Segmented Crawbster

Parastacoidea reptantia

Creep-crab family

This gigantic beast is wrapped in a hard shell. In an atypical evolution, the
right front leg of this creature is hypertophic, taking on the function of an
arm, rather than a leg. Its asymmetric physical development is unique in the
natural world. One unlucky explorer's incorrect conclusion that this creature
adheres to a pattern of peaceful, quiet behavior led to an unfortunate
incident. In fact, this beast exhibits intensely hostile, aggressive
tendencies, aiming at prey and ramming them at full speed.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
you can make this guy very easy or very hard. IT all depends on how fast 
you are.

1.Get around 15 Pikmin and enter the arena.

2.Get close enough in front of it so that it rolls around after you.

3.Get close to a wall and get out of the way just as it gets near you.

4.It will open up, but watch out for the rocks that fall down!!!!!!

5.After the rocks clear, get close to it and toss your Pikmin on the colorful
part of it.

6. When it rolls back over, call back your Pikmin and do the steps over again
until it is killed.



***#80***

Raging Long Legs

Treasure Value:
none (disintegrates after it is defeated)

There is a huge purple and black ball for this creature. At the top there are
the beginnings of four skinny legs, with big feet at the ends. There is also
weird substance at each of the connection points. It just stomps around slowly
until it gets to low health then it starts stomping much quicker.

-Raging Long Legs

Pseudoarachnia furiendis

Arachnorb family

Arachnorbs boast a wonderous biological composition, with a silicon-based
exoskeleton and innards coated with malleable heavy metals. However, much
about these creatures remains a mystery, as specimens regularly explode when
they are dissected. These explosions produce scorching flames that completely
melt all internal organs, leaving us with a dissappointing lack of information
on the inner workings of the species. We must await the development of new
dissection processes and more specialized research before we can better
understand this enigmatic creature. However, the following observation notes
have been recorded: appears to be leveling terrain for some unknown purpose...
Location of eyes and ears not readily apparent...Freezing a specimen may yield
new research opportunities.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
In my opinion, Raging Long Legs is the easiest of the Arachnorbs.

1.First you have to get rid of the Jellys.

2.After you do that Raging Long Legs will appear and start stomping around.

3.Once it rests like the other Arachnorbs do, throw your Pikmin on it.

4.After a short while it will twist. Whistle Your Pikmin and step back.

5.After half its health is gone, it will stomp faster, nothing else changes
much.

6.It will take a little longer than the other Arachnorbs, but repeat steps
3 and 4 until it explodes.



***#81***

Titan Dweevil

Treasure Value:
none (its body explodes after its health reaches zero)

Ok, there are two forms of the Titan Dweevil:

1.Before you take off all his weapons, he is metalic looking and has four
different weapons on him. They are a water spout, a flamethrower, an
electric generator, and a poison bomb.

2. After the weapons are gone he looks like a crab without the shell. If you
have ever eaten crab legs you know what I mean. If you haven't he is a pale
yellow color.

-Titan Dweevil

Mandarachnia gargantium

Dweevil family

The largest member of the dweevil family, this fearsome predator carries
protective components that frequently exhibit offensive capabilities, an
evolution that may be attributed to mere chance. Another evolutionary theory
is that the chemical contents of the containers carried by titan dweevils
contribute to possible gene splicing. While other dweevils do not seem to
choose the objects they carry, the titan dweevil appears to prefer shiny
objects above all others.

<>A Strategy by Jamie:
This guy will have the most complicated strategy because it has weapons to
disable.

1.Leave your Blue Pikmin at the side and go to Louie in the center of the
arena.

2.Once Titan Dweevil appears, start attacking the water Pump. Careful to avoid
all his attacks.

3.After the Water Pump falls of. Have your Pikmin grab it and take it back to
the ship.

4.Now leave all your Pikmin and grab your Red ones. Go back to the battle.

5.Start attacking the Flamethrower thing. It will start using it more once it
starts to smoke. Which is why you have the Red Pikmin.

6.Once it falls off. Take it back to the ship and switch the red for yellow.

7.Bring them in and start attacking the Electric Generator. Once it falls off
take it back to the ship.

8.Now bring in the Whites. The only thing left is the Poison Bomb and that
means you are invincible!

9.Once you get the Poison bomb of take it back to the ship.

10.Now grab all your Pikmin and attack the defenseless Titan Dweevil. It's all
down hill from here. He will be dead soon.

7p.SPECIAL LOUIE'S COOKING NOTES!
##################################

This section covers Louie's cooking recipes for all the monsters and plants.
You get these after saving Louie from the Titan Dweevil. I will use the term
save even though some argue he actually controlled it. Whatever. But anyways,
this section is incredibly yummy. (You wouldn't believe how many times this
part made me hungry while writing it!)

This is the format:

***#Monster/Plant Number***

Monster/Plant Name

-Louie's Cooking Notes.


Ok lets get started!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=====6pa.Normal Monster cooking=
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***#1***

Red Bulborb

-Plump specimens are best spit-roasted whole, stuffed with a lime and a slab
of bacon. Baste frequently to ensure a magnificently moist haunch.



***#2***

Hairy Bulborb

-Remove all of the bulborb's hair, wrap the beast in foil along with a halved
lemon, and place it directly on the grill. The foil should protect the carcass
from scorching, and the lemon will give the meat an elegant hint of citrus.



***#3***

Orange Bulborb

-This bulborb's meaty flanks make for a salaciously savory steak that
shouldn't be missed.



***#4***

Dwarf Red Bulborb

-For a blissful bisque, mince the entire beast finely and stir in with heavy
cream, artichoke hearts. and a pinch of black pepper. Heat slowly until piping
hot. Mmmmm....Rich and creamy!



***#5***

Snow Bulborb

-Best grilled and served hot over a bed of fresh spinach and crumbled blue
cheese.



***#6***

Dwarf Orange Bulborb

-Although difficult to prepare, this exquisite creature is more than worth the
effort. Great in fajitas!



***#7***

Spotty Bulbear

-For an unrivaled green curry, peel away the spotty bulbear's skin, pulverize
the juicy innards, and stew until curiously fragrant.



***#8***

Dwarf Bulbear

-Remove innards, stuff with sage and finely aged prosciutto, and broil until
golden brown. The ultimate crowd pleasers!



***#9***

Bulborb Larva

-This meager creature offers little meat, but its eyeballs are a local
delicacy. Try them with okra and a dollop of sour cream!



***#10***

Fiery Bulbax

-No stove? No problem! This sizzling beast practically cooks itself. Remember
to thoroughly extinguish the steaks prior to eating.



***#11***

Water Dumple

-Deep-fry dumples without batter for all of the flavor with half the fat!



***#12***

Bulbmin

-Grind the meat and season with allspice, salt, and ground white pepper. Press
the seasoned meat into meat satchels, then panfry them with onions. Prior to
serving, smother the brats with dijon mustard and saurkraut. Buns are
optional.



***#13***

Fiery Blowhog

-Roast this flavorful beast for several hours, letting it stew in its own
succulent juices. Don't worry about overcooking this beast..it's scorch-proof.



***#14***

Watery Blowhog

-This beast's unrivaled moistness gives it a melt-in-the-mouth quality that's
incomparable.



***#15***

Armored Cannon Beetle Larva

-Carefully remove every grain of sand, peel back the exoskeleton, and slurp
heartily!



***#16***

Decorated Cannon Beetle

-Slice the meat into tender cutlets and vigorously apply a lime and pepper
rub. Panfry until lightly crusted. Accopany with watercress and drizzle with
freshly prepared tamarind sauce.



***#17***

Puffy Blowhog

-Slce this creature's feather-light skin into triangles, deep-fry until
crispy, and salt generously. Makes the perfect scooping chip to accompany
fresh mango salsa!



***#18***

Withering Blowhog

-Hang this creature on a rack and sun-dry on a hot afternoon. When suitably
crisp, grind the sun-dried beast into powder. Makes a great substitute for
cayenne or curry powder!



***#19***

Gatling Groink

-Remove the cannon and ammo stockpile, then vigorously tenderize the meat with
a heavy mallet. Stir-fry with carmelized onions and figwort sprouts. Spoon
over a steaming bowl of fluffy white rice and douse with chili sauce.



***#20***

Iridescent Flint Beetle

-An essential flavor-accentuating ingredient in gumbo and jamalaya. Also
delicious in soups, broths, and marinades.



***#21***

Iridescent Glint Beetle

-This precious treat is exceptionally rare. I could sell it back at home for
a fortune! Then, I could use the cash to upgrade my kitchen, buy galactic-
class ingredients, and even star in my own cooking show...
The Insect Gourmet!



***#22***

Doodlebug

-Looking for a flavor that will surprise and delight your guests? This beast's
aroma may surprise your guests, but it won't be delightful!



***#23***

Female Sheargrub

-For an unforgettable quiche, slice this creature up and mix with four eggs,
two vine-ripened tomatoes, diced zucchini, and generous handfuls of feta and
swiss. Bake until crusty and golden. This beast is most flavorful if caught
and cooked just after laying its eggs.



***#24***

Male Sheargrub

-Spread several specimens in the bottom of a casserole dish and layer with
sliced avocado. Bake until the meat is choice and the cheese is lusciously
browned.



***#25***

Shearwig

-Grate this beast into a zest and whisk with sugar, cream, and chopped dark
chocolate for a lusciously indulgent mousse that's a true culinary coup de
grace!

with tartar sauce.



***#27***

Ravenous Whiskerpillar

-Delicious skillet-seared or sauteed with scallions and a red Genovese sauce.



***#28***

Anode Beetle

-Drain the electrical charge before boiling. Although it is possible to eat an
anode beetle while it is charged, doing so may result in an unpleasant
tingling sensation.



***#29***

Mitite

-Flash-fry with garlic and red chilis in a hot pan, then sprinkle with grated
gorgonzola.



***#30***

Hermit Crawmad

-Shuck from the shell, bake on high heat until crispy, then dip in a pot of
melted milk chocolate. Lip-smacking sweet!



***#31***

Swooping Snitchbug

-Remove the wings, marinate a well marbled steak for several hours in a
chipotle marinade, then charbroil to perfection.



***#32***

Bumbling Snitchbug

-Remove the wings and discard the remainder of the beast. Enjoy the luxurious,
wafer-thin wings with fine water-dumple caviar.



***#33***

Carrening Dirigibug

-Pull off the balloonlike air sacs, mince the meaty abdomen. and shape it into
small cakes. Pan-sear the cakes until crusted, but be careful not to overcook
the delicate meat. When ready to serve, garnish the plate with vibrant air
sacs. Even the most discerning dinner guests will be dazzled by the colorful
presentation!



***#34***

Antenna Beetle

-Extract meat from the exoskeleton and sear on all sides in a hot wok to seal
in the flavor. Top the dish off with a splash of spicy peanut sauce.



***#35***

Lesser SPotted Jellyfloat

-Similar in taste and texture to gelatin, this jiggling mass of jelly can be
sculptured into all kinds of creative shapes. As a bonus, it also doubles as
professional-grade hair gel. It's the perfect cool summer treat!



***#36***

Greater Spotted Jellyfloat

-Like a fine cheese, the aroma of this fluid floater can be oppresive, but its
flavor must be experienced to be believed. Also makes an unforgettable
nondairy spread!



***#37***

Fiery Dweevil

-The search for a gourmet, high-protein salad-topping alternative to bacon
bits is over! Grind this spicy dweevil into tasty microchunks and toss them
generously over your salad to add instant flair AND flavor!



***#38***

Anode Dweevil

-Raw anode dweevil makes for an unforgettable sushi treat, but if it is not
prepared by an expert hand with exacting precision, consumption could result
in a jolting electrical explosion of apocalyptic proportion.



***#39***

Caustic Dweevil

-Inedible. Effects of combustion include uncontrollable arm
flailing and enthusiastic dishwashing.



***#40***

Munge Dweevil

-Exposure to enen extreme heat doesn't seem to rid this creature of deposits
of potent gas. It's probably best for everyone if you avoid eating this
hazardous fare.



***#41***

Volatile Dweevil

-This scorching species combusts upon contact with the tongue. Only edible by
the adventurous and asbestos-tongued.



***#42***

Toady Bloyster

-Pan-sear with herbs and oil until lightly crusted on the outside and rosy on
the inside. Complement the savory flavors with a light and buttery creme
sauce.



***#43***

Yellow Wollywog

-Beer-batter and deep-fry for a down-home flavor you won't soon forget!



***#44***

Wollywog

-Wollywogs are best ground up, shaped into a patty, and flame-broiled on the
grill. Slap on tomato slices, lettuce, onions, ketchup, and slide the patty
between a sesame-seed bun for the ultimate beast-burger experience.



***#45***

Wogpole

-Wogpoles can be eaten raw, but they're much more flavorful when steamed or
grilled. Also heavenly in risotto! Feel free to experiment with this lush
ingredient.

Creeping Chrysanthemum

-When thinly sliced, this predator's sizezble bulb makes a sumptuous pizza
topping.



***#53***

Skitter Leaf

-The superb amalgamation of juicy meat and leafy greens ensures that the
skitter leaf will be the new spinach!



***#54***

Unmarked Spectralids

-Spectralids don't provide a lot of meat, but the exquisitely elegant wings
are surprisingly tasty, particularly when expertly prepared with a sweet
candied glaze.



***#55***

Honeywisp

-Although the eggs are small, the yolk has a distinctly bold and tangy flavor.
Try tossing a few in a pan along with your choice of meat and fresh vegetables
and cook up a country scramble!



***#56***

Mamuta

-Inedible. Tastes like chicken.



***#57***

Breadbug

-Breadbugs are hearty and nutritious but also bland and unimaginative. They
may be palatable in a pinch, but they hold no true culinary promise.

***#46***

Lapis Lazuli Candypop Bud

-This flower's tough texture makes it unsuitable for salads, but its bright
blue hue makes for a grandiose garnish!



***#47***

Crimson Candypop Bud

-This spicy flower combusts upon contact with the tongue. Keep fire-retardant
condiments within arm's reach!



***#48***

Golden Candypop Bud

-This tart flower's acidic juices can burn a hole through a frying pan. Eating
it would be unwise.



***#49***

Violet Candypop Bud

-This convenient purple flower secretes a dark, flavorful oil that eliminates
the need for salad dressing!



***#50***

Ivory Candypop Bud

-This elusive flower spoils within seconds of picking, making it unsuitable
for cooking.



***#51***

Queen Candypop Bud

-Eating this flower leads to spectacular, breathtaking indigestion.



***#58***

Pellet Posy

-On a quest for the perfect hors d'oeuvre? Slow cook this plant in a wood-fire
oven, but be careful to only serve the tender pellet.



***#59***

Common Glowcap

-Rapturous fresh or sauteed, this illuminating fungus will be hot in the
galaxy's trendiest restaurants.



***#60***

Clover

-Mildly poisonous. May result in nausea, headache, fever, fatigue, chest
pains, paralysis, loss of bone density, moodiness, feral rage, sauciness,
dilly-dallying, strokes of brilliance, and untimely doom.

.....so....don't eat it right?



***#61***

Figwort

-This titillating ingredient tastes impossibly fresh, but you must cook it
immediately after picking. If you don't, it'll go bad within minutes!



***#62***

Dandelion

-Young leaves are only suitable in garden salads. Use the flower to add color
to your dishes.



***#63***

Seeding Dandelion

-Dried, roasted, and finely ground, the root of this plant makes a passable
coffee substitute.



***#64***

Horsetail

-Remove and discard the primitive, scaly leaves, then blanch the tender stock
in a buttery broth.



***#65***

Foxtail

-Inedible. Plagues victims with potent, debilitating cramps.



***#66***

Glowstem

-Inedible. Known effects include uncontrollable episodes of impromptu break
dancing.



***#67***

Margaret

-Can be eaten fresh out of the soil, but it's much more flavorful when
incorporated into a heavenly veggie lasagna.



***#68***

Fiddlehead

-Sun-dry the leaves for several days, then grind them with a mortar and
pestle. The resulting grants an aromatic, earthy flavor to mutton and poultry
dishes.



***#69***

Shoot

-Inedible. And yet strangely delicious.

obese creature's liver and spread it over a sesame cracker.

-Slice the serpentine torso into thin medallions, skewer on a metal rod with
Hocotate onions,and barbecue over an open flame.



***#72***

Beady Long Legs

mirth.



***#73***

Emperor Bulbax

-To prep the tongue for cooking, marinate in olive oil and chop into cubes.
Stir in a pot with carrots, potatoes, and chives, cover, and simmer over low
heat for several hours. Accompany this mouthwatering, rustic stew with a
hearty roll.



***#74***

Giant Breadbug

-Although cooking this colossal beast yields a mountain of meat, every ounce
of it is flavorless. Only suitable for intergalactic all-you-can-eat-buffets.



***#75***

Pileated Snagret

-You haven't lived until you've tasted a mint-braised snagret shank! Or if
you're feeling especially saucy, stuff a bird with a can of your favorite
savory nectar, throw it on the barbeque, and let the juices mingle to make a
mean beverage-canister snagret!



***#76***

Man-at-legs

-Although the meat is a bit on the metallic side, the oil makes a
mouthwatering gravy or lubricative vinaigrette.



***#77***

Ranging Bloyster

-The gills are best prepared deep-fried in an herb and bread-crumb batter.
Also tasty poached and drenched with fine soy sauce.



***#78***

Waterwraith

-Inedible. Known to cause mass hysteria, followed by leg spasms and internal
thunderings.



***#79***

Segmented Crawbster

Dessert meats are all the rage o Hocotate. When the planet's finest chefs hear
about the kind of sorbets, pies, and parfaits you can make with the claw meat
on this sweet beast, they'll clamor for every morsel we bring home!



***#80***

Raging Long Legs

-Neither boiling nor baking can diminish this creature's overpowering musky
scent. Only suitable for serving to unpleasant in-laws.



***#81***

Titan Dweevil

-Eaten raw, this predator's luxurious legs are bold and full flavored. What a
satisfying crunch!

7pa4.Mitites
?????????????????????

Mitites are strange creatures that freak out your Pikmin. They are found
randomely inside eggs anywhere in the game. They also appear from under ground
to mess you up in some areas. So there is really no precise area you can get
them. Just find a place with a lot of eggs and open them and just cross your
fingers. Good Luck!
