Captain Olimar Trophy

This is a really cool-looking and easy to get trophy! All you have to do is play 1 day of Pikmin (not a 24-hour day, just a regular Pikmin-game day) and then play Super Smash Brothers. After the Melee Main Menu, it should say "You've gotten the Captain Olimar trophy".

Take Down The Evil Fat Mushroom

First, you need 50 red Pikmin for this, when you get to the circular area that he is in, dismiss 30 Pikmin, but keep them away from the mushroom, but not too far. Get the other 20 to attack it's legs (if it looks like it's sucking in air, get your Pikmin away from it!)hopefully, it will tip over.When it does, throw the Pikmin on it, as fast as you can! When it gets upright get your Pikmin away, if they don't, the mushroom will spread a spore and turn them against you, get your other 30 Pikmin to battle the evi ones, repeat until it is dead. Also the top is the missing part, the other half is a lot of pellets.

Lots Of Pikmen Fast!

To make this faster and easier, get the yellow pikmin first. Then go to the "Impact Site" level and go into the part past the box with the number 10 on it. Have the yellow pikmin pick up the bomb rocks on the other side of the box, and use three of them to knock down the white wall. Once you go inside, stay close to the sides as not to drown your pikmin. To the right, around the corner is a clam type thing with a pearl in it's mouth. Stand next to it and put your site in it's mouth just next to the pearl. Grab a pikmin with a bomb rock and toss it it. It should land in, run out and throw it's bomb rock. Do this twice to kill it. Have them take it back to the onion and you get about 50 pikmin seeds!!!

Find A Ship Part

If you want to find the Geiger Counter do all of the following.... First, go to THE FOREST OF HOPE second, get about 50 yellows 30 reds and 20 blues. Now go up to the two spotty bulburls and defeat them both then if have not torn down that wall do so now. Go though and turn left and go though where a brick wall stood (or is still standing). Now go take out all the bulburls (if there are any). Dissmiss your pikmin and call your blues back and push that 10 block out of the way. Now defeat every burrowing snargret. The last one gives you the Geiger Counter once you defeat it. If it is close to sunset put your blues on the Geiger Counter so they can cut though the lake to make it faster and the rest on pellets till you get to camp................. and that's how you get the Gieger Counter.

Battle Tactic

In the forest of hope, there are these huge predators that are red with white polka dots. They sleep during the day. If you attack them from the front, you can lose as many as seventy pikmin! However, if you sneak up behind them while they're sleeping, put Olimar directly behind the rear of the predator, and push the c stick in the direction of the enemy, you can kill it almost instantly with a minimum of 40 pikmin and not lose any!

Space Float

To get the space float you must first go to the Naval Base and find the blue ognion. After you get a few blue pikmin, find a flower with a pellet in it and get one of your blue pikmin to slash it down. Don't do anything until a beetle-like creature comes and trys to eat it, when he does send 2 pikmin at the pellet they will fight for it and drag the beetle back to the ognion where the ray will pull the pellet and the beetle up and the beetle will get hurt. You will have to do this 2 times and when the beetle dies you will get The Space Float. (Your Pikmin won't attack this creature so that is the only way to kill it)

Challenge Mode

Save the game once and go to the main menu

GameCube | Submitted by Gamecuber

Secret Mode

It's easy just meet everykind of Pikmin (blue, yellow, and red)and collect every rocket part and escape the planet before the 30 days are up and Challenge Mode will appear on the main menu. The point of Challenge mode is to breed as many Pikmin as you can in one day. It's not as simple as it sounds because these things happen:

1.you can access every area,

2.enemys pop up in new places to eat you,

3.day is longer,

4.you can work a little bit at night (a second or so)

5.Pikman take longer to find and be reproduced by by pellets (as in it's hard to find them in the ground)

6.areas are not the same in Challenge mode (including pellets and Pikmin in the ground)

Enjoy the mode!!!

Turn Captain Olimar Into A Pikmin

First, I suggest taking out your memorycard. Then just get the engine. Next just keep pressing start and select go to sunset. Keep doing this until the 30 days are up and there should be a little movie and the pikmin will carry captain olimar`s dead body. The onion will spit out captain olimar and he will have a leaf on his head.
