Pikmin 2 Cheats

  • Get bulborbs to Work for you

    Go into a cave and keep searching until you find a bulborb with a leaf on its head. First defeat the big one and the little ones will run around. Call them to you to you with the whistle. And they are your servents. And two bonuses... They can stand Fire, Water, Electricity, and poison, and they can`t escape to the surface. They are called bulbmin.

  • Easy Way to Beat Enemies Without Pikmin

    Entry location: Any underground area with gaps in the floor
    This cheat is useful for getting treasure held by enemies or just getting rid of them. First find out if the enemy runs away from you (Like Dweevils) or follows you (Like Spotty Bulbears). If it runs away from you, chase it off a ledge. If it had something, it will appear where is was before it ran over the ledge. Some enemies like the Spotty Bulbear follow you. They always take the most direct patch to you, even if it means walking off a ledge. Try and get it so there is a gap between you and the enemy. It will walk of the ledge trying to get to you. It will drop whatever it was carrying where it was before it walked off the ledge.

Pikmin 2 Glitches

  • Manhole Lid

    In the valley of repose there is a manhole lid with a bulborb on it. After you beat the bulborb and leave your pikmin will get stuck. And if you go away to far your pikmin will pause on their own, and will proably get left behind. To stop that from happening go to the Emergence Cave and they will get loose. If that does not work keep going in directions until free.

  • Waterwraith Glitch

    Entry location: Piklopedia (recommended) Submerged Castle
    When the Waterwraith is falling, use an ultra bitter spray (press Z in the Piklopedia) and the rollers will freeze first. Then when the Waterwraith lands on the rollers he will freeze too. When the rollers break free, freeze them one more time. When the Waterwraith breaks free, he will have trouble lifting up his roller since that is what he does when he falls. If you hate the Waterwraith try this for revenge!

  • Flowers for Pikmin

    Sometimes, if you crack eggs open there is nectar. Use the C-Stick and direct your pikmin to the nectar. Pikmin with leaves will now have Flowers on their heads. This also works with some margets (flowers). Butterflys come out hit the butterflys with your pikmin. Again it also works for those flys with egges attached to them, hit them with pikmin.

    1. Your pikmin dont get stepped on

    2. You can attack him longer because he won't shake them off until he's done stomping

    3. Sometimes he won't start stomping really fast.
