    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!

    ***#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.

    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.

    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.

    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"

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    
    
    
    ***#62***
    
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!!!******

    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.

    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!)

    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!
