Pikmin walkthrough  (ver 1.02)


The "Shut up!" guide to FLOWER POWER!!!
by Vienticus Prime


Before starting, I'm going to give you some reference material for this
walkthrough.  I'll try to give directions based on a compass, the front of the
ship (the part where you stand to bask in the sunlight of your own disaster)
will be referred to as north, despite the fact that I just noticed the compass
on the map after finishing the walkthrough.  Once I feel you should have a
sufficient stock and knowledge of what to do with your new demonic horde, I'll
stop doing step by step info of how to increase your Pikmin.


Red Onion
Zone:  Impact Site
Day:  1
..............................................................................
If you need a walkthrough for this part, you've got mental problems.  The game
already does that for you, repeatedly.  Follow what is says and complete your
first day, wiggling, dancing, and doing all the stuff you would normally do
once you learn how to play a game.

So on your first day, here's what to do.  Walk north by northwest to access
the red onion.  Hang out with Oliver and his mad scientist journal entries,
then pluck your first slave.  If you want, throughout this whole time you can
let them all grow to full bloom, because your Game Cube will burn out before
the day ends.  Letting them grow will make your life a little easier in the
early stages of the game.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 1:  Engine
Zone:  Impact Site
Day:  1
..............................................................................
Use your first Pikmin to run around and grab all the pellets you can.  If you
want them to grow to flowers, hang out and be happy while doing it.  I'd best
recommend this time to either grabbing yourself a quick snack, or refreshing
yourself in the BR chamber (bathroom for those of you at home).  Once you've
collected all the pellets in the immediate vicinity, push the box to the
northeast of the onion.

We can forget about the ship part for now, just walk onto the stump and
everywhere to collect all the pellets you can, you should have 25 when you're
done.
..............................................................................
My end of day report:
Sprouted:  25
Mauled:  0
Ditched:  0


Spaceship Part 2:  Eternal Fuel Dynamo
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  2
..............................................................................
First off, build your army.  Use 1 to grab knock the plant, 1 to grab the
pellet, and while he's carrying it, sound your trumpet of joy and knock down
the barrier in your way.

Now it's time for your first fight.  Grab your 2 new recruits and dart
straight for the little bugs.  Toss a couple right on his head to knock him
out and feed the onion.  While your first set of troops are carrying off the
spoils, go after the 2nd.  Now grab the 4 red pellets from the plants and head
back.

There's 2 patches of grass in the landing area.  Grab about 10 Pikmin (5 for
each), it's ok if you grab more, they won't care, they're not programmed to.
Have your guys search for yellow nectar, drink it, and now you'll have a few
fast Pikmin.  Once they're done mutating, grab all of them, and let's get
moving.

Turn east once you get out the gate, and maul the 2 bugs there.  Grab the ship
part and bring it home (along with whatever else you can carry).
..............................................................................


Yellow Onion
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  2
..............................................................................
Ignore the 10 pellet for now, we're going after some bigger game.  Attack the
big bug by tossing all of your leafheads on it's back.  When it's dead, grab
it and every red pellet you see and head back for the ship.

Wait til all your new recruits are ready, then yank em all.  By now it should
be a little past noon and you'll have over 80 Pikmin at your command (if you
didn't suffer any losses).  Go past where the big bug was and start knocking
down the door.

Once it crashes, fight with a vengence.  Take everything out and haul it all
back.  Beat the cargo home though, cause you'll go to your limits in number
and you need every Pikmin you can spare for now.  Return all that you have,
minus those carrying food.  Go back to where the big bug was, and open up the
yellow onion.

Immediately have this guy start gathering pellets, then grab the bombs while
gathering and start chucking them at the walls.  Once they're done, pluck em
all, grab some more bombs, and truck back to the ship.  If you're fast enough,
you'll have that wall next to your ship down just before nighttime.

My end of day report:
Spawned:  92
Munched:  10
Mugged in the darkness:  0


Spaceship Part 3:  Whimsical Radar
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  3
..............................................................................
If you didn't get the wall destroyed last night, do it now.  Take some yellows
out to get pellets and bombs.  Grab about 60 red and go through the new
opening.  Maul the bugs, then start hiking them back.  Stop the reds from
pulling them in, and let the yellows take over.  You also may have noticed a
large yellow pellet on the tree stump.  We'll worry about that later.

Have a bunch of red start beating down the gate you may have seen.  Have 30
working on it.  It'll take a while, so don't worry too much about it til
later.  Go back and have some Pikmin searching for nectar again while you
pluck out all the new ones.

Now go east at the intersection, grab the pellets on the way, then get ready
to fight.  The enemies here come up from underground.  Eliminate them, then
start carrying them back.

Rush back to start returning troops so you don't go overboard.  After doing
some plucking and returning, grab about 25 yellows (including those with
unused bombes), and go around north to east collecting bombs.  Destroy the
new wall you previously fought in front of.

Turn east, and start launching the yellow Pikmin to get the radar.
..............................................................................



Spaceship Part 4:  Extraordinary Bolt
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  3
..............................................................................
By now you should be done with that other gate (a noise will sound and the
thumping in the background will stop).  Once you've finished with this gate,
ditch any remaining bombs, and grab those other Pikmin.
..............................................................................



Spaceship Part 5:  Nova Blaster
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  3
..............................................................................
Grab all your yellow runts, and get that big yellow pellet.  Go to the western
gate with an army and get ready to do some pounding.  If you're still on day
3, you don't have that much time, so you gotta get in and out real fast.
You probably won't be able to do it and will have left the part right next to
your ship, leaving you a whole day to increase your army.  The best way to do
it is to get about 70+ of any type of Pikmin and just bum rush em.  If you
don't think you're going to be able to get the Nova Blaster.

My end of day report:
Hatched:  104
Crunched:  12

Spaceship Part 6:  Space Float
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  4
..............................................................................
First off, yank out 100 guys and knock down the gate just south of you.
Return 40, and bring 60 reds with you.  Head north, and open up the 2 ramps to
where the blowhogs are.  Kill evety blow hog you see, since they can't be hurt
by fire.  Keep an eye out for the bug that tries to steal a pellet.  Grab onto
whatever he takes and beat him when he gets back to the onion.  Bring all the
spoils back to your ship as well, making your Pikmin grow to even numbers.
On your way back, have about half your reds work on the plank east of the
gate you can't knock down yet.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 7:  Automatic Gear
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  4
..............................................................................
Shortly after you turn in the Float, this will come.  Pluck all your new
Pikmin and return all your reds while waiting for it.
..............................................................................


Blue Onion
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  4
..............................................................................
Put away all your reds and grab about 40 yellows.  Take them all down to where
the blowfrogs were. On the northern side of the water, toss all 40 of your
Pikmin up to start working on the ramp, then go south while they're working.
Head under where your guys had previously finished the plank, and you'll see
the blue onion.  Start gathering immediately.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 8:  Gravity Jumper
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  4
..............................................................................
Don't expect to do much, because by now you're pressed for time.  Hurry back
north and get those 40 yellows on the ship part, then go back to the blues
and have them rake in as much junk as they can.  By the time the part gets in,
it'll be close to sundown, rake in all the straglers and don't leave any blues
unplucked.
..............................................................................
My end of day report:
Made:  55
Made dead:  3
Made fun of:  0


Spaceship Part 9:  Positron Generator
Zone:  Impact Site
Day:  5
..............................................................................
First off, call out all your blues, have them build the plank and activate the
geyser to the west of the onions.  Get the 10 blue pellet and some nectar and
be happy.  Search around the onions to get every single pellet you can obtain
(except the big ones).  Build your guys up so that you have about 100 each.

Once you're done and plucked them all, go up the box ramp and check out by

the gate (there's sometimes a monster here to fight).  Go back and get about
10 yellows, send them up the plank and get the pellet.  Grab another 25 and
go to the open side of the box for some bombs.  Blow up the gate, then go
through it and blow up the one on the left.  Then collect your 20 pellet.

Return all your yellows, and take all your blues with you through the
gate on the tree trunk.  Smash down the gate that's there, then chuck em at
the ship part, but recall them after the clam top stops wiggling or they'll be
killed.  Also, don't hit the ship part with them, land them right next to it
or they'll be dazed for a split second.  Once you've freed the ship part, get
it and the large pellet and bring them back.  Start plucking all your Pikmin
now because night time is coming.
..............................................................................
My end of day report:
Hatched:  109
Killed:  0
Waved bye-bye:  0


Spaceship Part 10:  Sagittarius
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  6
..............................................................................
Grab every single blue one that you have.  Start off by searching for nectar
in the grass, then go north out the gate.  Kill any bugs that may have regrown
and grab all the pellets for the blues.  While that's working, start working
on the bridge.  Hurry back to do some gardening, and pluck new Pikmin until
you hear the bridge finish.  Go to it, grab all your troops and swim to the
ship part.  Toss all your Pikmin up to work on the bridge, leaving a couple to
kill the things in the water.  By the time you kill them and recover the
spoils, the bridge should be done.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 11:  Shock Absorber
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  6
..............................................................................
While you're bringing in the Sagittarius, take all your dominion remaining
across the small pond to the northest.  This will take you to a large bug and
another ship part.  Collect all the nectar from the shells and grass to feed
your army it's Wheaties, then kill the bug by bombing him from behind.  Take
him and the ship part back.  Take the red pellet for your red Pikmin.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 12:  Radiation Canopy
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  6
..............................................................................
Pluck all your Pikmin and return all the reds.  Get all blues ready for action
and head south, then west at the intersection.  Turn left immediately and
knock down the gate in the water.  Go through it and knock down the next gate.

This'll be your first encounter with a boss if you haven't run into one at the
Impact Site.  He's pretty tough, but keep at him and you'll be fine.  Keep
chucking them at his hole on his forehead, when he sucks in to blow a boulder
of snot at you, it'll knock him off balance.  Now he'll be ticked off and run
around for a while with his body exposed, get behind him and toss your men
onto his back and beat him down like he owes you money.

Grab his body and the ship part and head on your merry way.  Make sure you
bring the body first because it's getting close to night.  If you have over
100 of each already, pretty much spend the rest of the game just building up
the blues, you'll be using them the most of the game anyway.

This should be it for the night.

Spaceship Part 13:  Geiger Counter
Zone:  Forest of Hope
Day:  7
..............................................................................
If you didn't get the Radiation Canopy last night, take 50 blues with you to
get it now.  While they bring it back, fill up on blue Pikmin and get the
morning nectar.  When you have 100 at your disposal, head south, then west
killing everything along the way.  Go to the area north of where you first
discovered the yellow onion and clean house.

Get in the water and chuck blues up until the box is moved.  Now go back and
fill up to 100 again then return.

Try to use your happy trumpet to keep them in single file behind you so that
none falls in the water, you're about to fight another boss.  This guy is a
huge bird that pokes his head out of the ground and starts nabbing your guys
about 3 at a time.  Charge all 3 of emthe first one and finish with the one
nearest the ledge to the water on the western side.  Maim, kill, destroy, and
as fast as you can if you wanna do some growing with all your loot.  Every
time your guys get knock on their rears, use your recall button to get them
up quickly, then just use the C-stick to make sure they all latch on like
parasites.

Beat them back to the ship if you wanna sort the pellets.  Then just hang
around and garden for the rest of the day.

Spaceship Part 14:  Omega Stabilizer
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  8
..............................................................................
Pull out about 100 redheads, and go down to where the blowhogs were.  Head
north to the kinda eerie lookin part of town.  Kill the enemies on the way,
and get ready for a boss fight.

This guy's cake if you've got an army.  Swarm in on him and don't let up, when
he flips over, start flickin your little red boogers onto him.  If he starts
to shake, recall your guys and get them out of there.  He'll drop a powder
that possesses your Pikmin and they will charge and kill you.  Take the ship
part and all the spoils you can carry back with you.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 15:  #1 Ionium Jet
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  8
..............................................................................
Now grab 100 yellows, go to the bridge you had to construct to the north of
the water, walk off the other side and build that bridge.  When it's done,
grab bombs and head to the west.  Go to the right of the ramp to a new path,
leave the bomber ones behind, and go kill all the bugs.  Have your Pikmin
carry back the load, then the rest start knocking down the gate.  Go back and
get the bombs and start knocking down the other wall.

Hurry back to the ship once it's knocked down, dump off all your Pikmin and
get about 20 blues.  Head south into the 2nd pool for the ship part, grab it,
get the stragglers, and head home.

Shaceship Part 16:  Guard Satellite
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  9
..............................................................................
Start off by grabbing about 9 yellows and getting bombs from across the beach
again.  Knock down the new doors next to the gate you knocked down yesterday.
By now the blowhogs have probably respawned so you'll have to navigate around
them lest your group gets caught on fire.

In here is a boss, to kill him, you have to toss your plant posse up onto
the bulb. This is easier to do with yellow Pikmin, good thing you brought them
along with you.  Careful of his feet smashing the ground cause they'll crush
a lot of your army and draw away their attention from you.

When he's dead, go back and get enough to have 15 total yellows on the field
and leave them there, get 85 reds, get all the spoils, and go kill all the
blowhogs on the beach (minus the one with the frogn next to him.  When you
kill the last blowhog it'll be next to a fence and you'll have about 40 some
red guys with you.  Have them start smashing down the gate, and head back to
the ship.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 17:  Libra
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  9
..............................................................................
Head back to the ship when the blowhogs are dead.  Return as many as you need
and get 20 blues and 15 yellow, then head to that gate and crash it down,
picking up stragglers along the way.  When it's done, go in (being careful of
the fire sprouts) and quickly build the bridge.  When a couple sections are
done, stop and seperate your Pikmin,  get the red and yellows to finish the
bridge and take the blues with you.

Tread carefully around the fire spigits to the south, and go to the pool.
In here, grab the ship part and carry it just out of the water and drop it
before the first fire spigit.  Go back, dump all the blues on the west side
of the bridge, and go in and get the yellows.

Toss them up on the ledge, then hop on they geyser and toss them up to the
ship part.  When it gets down, call them off and let the reds take over.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 18:  Analog Computer
Zone:  Forest Navel
Day:  9
..............................................................................
Take your remaining reds to the part you pulled out of the water, then drag
it home.  Then grab the rest of your Pikmin at the bridge and collect the
spoils of the blowhogs before turning in for the night.

..............................................................................
Chances are that you had to ditch the parts to gether your guys in time for
lights out, take out 50 blues and collect them.  While they're coming in, grab
50 red and go kill the blowhog and frog down on the beach.  Don't even worry
about hauling the spoils back, just meet the rest of your squad at the space
ship.  Get 100 blue buddies after the parts are loaded and go straight through
the water, getting the last part on this stage.  Spend the rest of the day
growing new Pikmin and hunting for nectar.

..............................................................................
Start off by grabbing 100 blue Pikmin, and kill the stuff to the east.  Don't
haul anything back yet, after they're dead, continue east and build the 2
bridges by half and half.

If you haven't lost any Pikmin in the battle, keep a couple blues with you.
Go and get 5 yellows and go east again to the tree stump with the skull in it.
Collect the bombs and bomb the wall to the east.  When you've used all 4
bombs, grab a yellow 5 pellet with them and go after your first set of blues.

By now, at least half the bridge should be done.  Grab the idle ones and toss
them onto the incomplete half, when done, get the ship part.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 21:  Interstellar Radio
Zone:  Distant Spring
Day:  11
..............................................................................
Take as many yellows and red as needed to collect for their color.  Have them
all harvest and max out your blues.  Go north and kill the stuff along the
way.  Get the next part from the giant blowfish thingy.  Night time should be
coming, grab the spoils from your battles and retire for the night.

Start off by taking out 100 blue Zerglings.  Walk to the 3 grass patches and
the clam shells in the immediate area.  Then head north and build the bridge.
While it's working, go around and grab the one's you had looking for nectar.
Once it's done, kill all the bugs there and hurry home with the part and
spoils.  If you have enough time left, kill the bugs that are right next to
the bridge north of where your ship is.
..............................................................................


Spaceship Part 23:  Bowsprit
Zone:  Distant Spring
Day:  12
..............................................................................
Leave all the blues and grab about 15 yellows.  Go back to where the part was
and grab bombs.  Finish destroying the one wall, fill up on bombs right next
to you, and then start working on the wall next to your ship.  You should have
a couple bombs left over after smashing down the wall, ditch the yellow guys
under the onion for use later.

Go into the section that you just opened up next to your ship and unleash
hell.  Clean up all the way to the gate on the southeast side of the fire
plumes, and then return your blues.  Grab as many reds as you can along with
your bombs and start going southeast past the new area.

Use your bombers and about 10 reds to work on the gate.  The rest take
through the fire plumes (ignoring the pellet).  Here's another beetle boss,
you beat him the same way you did the other, hit him in the opening when he
sucks in then jump on his back.  Don't grab anything when he's dead, instead
head east, build the ramp and knock down the gate, then get the spoils if you
think you'll have time.

Grab 100 blues, you probably haven't finished bringing in the last ship part,
but don't worry about it for now.  Go east, and head through the gate.  Kill
the frogs, and knock down the 2 gates and get the next ship part.  If any
died, a good time to get replacements would be when they're knocking down the
first gate.  Don't worry about the spoils for now, and escort the ship part
back.

Spaceship Part 26:  UV Lamp
Zone:  Distant Spring
Day:  13
..............................................................................
Get 25 yellows, and head southwest toward the next ship part.  Toss all your
Pikmin to the right of the giant hole, then walk south onto the ramp and fall
down near them.  Toss 10 onto the next step just west of you, and leave the
rest idle at the base of the really steep ramp.  Go up and toss the 10 up to

Bring 40 blues with you to the southwest, toss 20 of them up and into the

up to get the part.  Once they drag it onto the beach, stop them and toss them
all into the blue flower so they'll change back.  Spend the rest of the day

Spaceship Part 30:  Secret Safe
Zone:  Final Trial
Day:  15
..............................................................................
Start off by grabbing 87 blues and build the bridge.  Grab 10 reds and toss
them all up to where the fire sprouts are.  Guide them through the ledge all
the way north until they start moving the box then leave them there.  By now
your blues should be done with the bridge, bring them back and leave them
under their onion.

Grab 3 yellows and toss them to the north east and work your way to get 3
bombs.  Take the yellows and bomb the gate.  Return your yellows once it's
down, then grab the blues and do the next half of the bridge.  Take the 10 reds
waiting there, knock down the gate, then return to the ship and get 100
yellows.

The end guy is nothing short of a hyper pain.  He takes long to kill, so don't
be suprised if it takes you more than one try.  The only problem is that he
gains his health by morning.

For now, go past him and knock down the gate.  force all your guys in there
and get all the bombs you can.  When you're ready, seperate your Pikmin and
grab one with a bomb.  Toss it halfway between the gate and the plant and
walk up to the plant.  When you touch the plant sticking out of the ground,
the final boss will pop out.

To kill him, you gotta get more Pikmin on his face than a teenager with acne.
There's a way you can use the bombs to kill him, but I'll get to that in a sec.
When opens his mouth, he's about to sway his tongue around, so always keep
you and your death squad to his side.  When he wiggles, he's about to jump,
grab all your Pikmin from under him using the B button and the C-stick.  If
he jumps real high, you're screwed, cause he aims right for the largest
cluster.  No matter how much damage he does, just keep tossing them onto
his face until one of you are dead.  If necessary, go restock your street
gang when you get below 20.

By the time he gets ready to gobble the guy holding the bomb, have half your
army ready.  Sometimes the bait will toss the bomb into his mouth and run back
to join your group, but once he swallows it, lay into him.  The bomb will
explode leaving him all wiggly for a few second, that's when you launch your
guys like an army of minature Alien facegrabbers.  Once he gets back to
normal, recall your troops and stash them by the bombs.  Grab more bait and
repeat the whole process.

Once you carry the final ship part home, congradulations, the game is over
and you are now Zod of it.
