'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

The guide is nearly complete. The walkthrough chapters are done up to the
Forest Naval. There are some parts in the Distant Spring included. 6 more
parts are required and the walkthrough will be finished. The Piklopedia is
missing the game descriptions. All other chapters have been completed. File
size is around 131KB.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

The guide is finished. The last part in the Distant Spring has been added, as
has the Final Trial. File size is around 136KB.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Having looked over this guide again, it seemed a bit messy. I have worked on
formatting quite a bit, changing the section headers and making the text flow
a little more. I have added bits of information for every part as well as
updating the Piklopedia. I added the At The End of The Day section to the 
Game Basics, which I had missed out completely. The ASCII controller in the
controls section has been swapped for a better one too.

A major thing that I have just discovered is that I have missed out the
descriptions for the UV Lamp and the Bowsprit. I could have sworn I typed
them up, so I'm guessing that they got lost in the time it took to get from
version 0.8 to version 1.0. This will be rectified in the very near future.

Hello peeps and welcome to my Pikmin FAQ for the Gamecube. I'm not sure, as
I have a couple of projects on at the moment, but I think this will be my 15th
FAQ. Or something like that. I am writing this FAQ purely because I know this
game well and I'm sure I can help people out. No personal 'goals' for me this
time, I just hope you find it helpful.

Pikmin is a game that pushes the envelope of innovation. Which is great. Who
wants to stick to the straight and narrow of tried and tested methods anyway?
Gaming is all about innovation, which this has without question. But what
else would you expect from a Miamoto game? 

I've introduced myself. I have introduced the game. But you need to know what
you will find in this guide, right? The story chapter is pretty obvious. It
contains the lines that I borrowed from the instruction manual. The controls
chapter is also pretty obvious. After that is the Using Pikmin chapter. In 
here you will find information on everything that Pikmin can do, what harms
Pikmin etc. Following that is the walkthrough. Here you will find step-by-step
instructions on how to obtain each part. Proceeding that is the Piklopedia;
an analysis of each enemy in the game. Then there is a small FAQ section. 
Things are wrapped up with the Credits and the Contact Information chapters.

You won't find any challenge mode help in this FAQ. There is plenty of other
sources for that and I'm not concerned with it.

The story from the instruction manual...

My name is Captain Olimar. On my homeworld of Hocotate, I am a well known 
navigator of the stars. I use my faithful ship, the Dolphin, to carry small
freight and minerals from planet to planet. It is a job of no small 
importance, and I take it seriously.

For a long time I had been working too hard, a tendency of mine, so I decided
to take some time off by myself to recuperate. The night before I left, my
wife prepared my favourite soup. This soup is a famous dish on my planet,
made with three large onions and hundreds of miniature red, yellow, and blue 
carrots. Once I had my fill of this delicious dinner, I climbed into my warm
bed and began to think of the leisurely vacation that would start the next
morning. I finally fell into a deep, peaceful sleep.

The journey began well. With no set destination in mind, I simply allowed the
sleek Dolphin of mine to make its own efficient way through the vast reaches
of space. A strange feeling came over me... I then felt a premonition that my
short trip would soon become an epic adventure. I dismissed the thought as 
foolishness from my overactive brain, then switched the Dolphin to autopilot
and stood up from the control seat to make a hot cup of tea. Just then, a
massive jolt shook the Dolphin! For a brief moment, my mind reeled with the
possibilities of what might have happened, but I had little time to react.
I was thrown against the control panel, and I blacked out.

When I came to, I found that the Dolphin had crashed on a strange planet, in
a place whose name and location I could not guess. I thanked the laws of 
chaos that I was at least, for the time, safe. After some inspection, I
noticed that the Dolphin was so shaken during re-entry that several of her
pieces had been jarred loose, probably scattered around the planet. To make
matters worse, my sensors indicated that the planet's atmosphere contained
oxygen, an element incredibly deadly to my people. Fortunately, the
life-support system built into my suit seemed unharmed, but I knew that it
had only enough remaining battery power to function for another 30 days. If
only I could find the engine, then at least I could fly within this planet's
atmosphere to search for the other parts...

Will I be able to find the missing parts from my spaceship? Will I be able
to return safely to my home and family? I must steel myself against fear and
loneliness if I am ever to see them again.

I have decided to record my observations and experiences in my journal until 
I am able to leave this forbidding planet. My only hope lies in the promise 
of two strange encounters I had today. The first was the discovery of a large
object, similar to the onions on my planet. But it was enormous, and it
rested on three legs. The other was the appearance of a small life-form
eerily similar to my planet's miniature carrots. I have decided to name this
small life-form...Pikmin...

The first function of the control stick is that it moves Olimar around the
landscape. This requires a full tilt of the stick. If you slightly tilt the
stick, you will move the cursor instead of Olimar. The cursor is used for
aiming. This can be used to see where Pikmin land, or to call them as a group.


  A - B u t t o n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The action button. If you have a group of Pikmin selected, press this and 
Olimar will throw the Pikmin where the cursor is pointing. If there are no
Pikmin selected then Olimar will punch. This isn't very strong, but it can be
used, so bear it in mind. Pressing A in lit up areas (such as underneath and
Onion or in front of the Dolphin) will cause Olimar interact with that object.
If you press A whilst in the light in front of the Pikmin, Olimar will be
healed.


  B - B u t t o n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Olimar will whistle when you press the B button. The epicentre of whistle is
where ever the cursor is pointing. The longer you hold B down, the larger the
area of the whistle. Any Pikmin at are inside the confines of this whistle
will become part of the selected group.


  C - S t i c k
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This will move the Pikmin in the selected group. You can move them around but
you can't move them far from Olimar.


  D - P a d 
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Press down on the D-Pad and Olimar will lie down. Whilst he is in this state,
he cannot be harmed by any enemies. In addition to this Pikmin can pick up
Olimar and carry him to the Onion. If this happens the Onion will shoot out
fireworks. This is really an Easter egg and not much use.


  Y - B u t t o n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This brings up the Olimar's monitor.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This will dismiss any Pikmin that are in the selected group. Pikmin will
stand in groups defined by colour (i.e. Blues stand with Blues and Reds
with Reds etc). Yellow Pikmin with Bomb Rocks will stand in a different group
to Yellows without.

|                               TYPES OF PIKMIN                              |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

There are 3 types of Pikmin. These are Red, Yellow and Blue. The different
colours have different advantages and disadvantages.


  R e d  P i k m i n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

The Red Pikmin are the first Pikmin that you will come across. The Red Pikmin
are stronger in the attack than the others. They are also fire-resistant,
perfect when carrying parts back to the Dolphin without worry about death by
flame. If a Red Pikmin falls into the water, they will drown. They can be
rescued by Blue Pikmin or they can be called back, however this often has an
element of luck.


  Y e l l o w  P i k m i n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

The Yellow Pikmin can be found in the Forest of Hope. These have two
advantages over other Pikmin. First of all Yellow Pikmin can handle Bomb
Rocks. This will allow you access to new areas. Secondly, Yellow Pikmin are
lighter than other Pikmin, meaning Olimar can throw them further and higher.
Some parts can only be reached by throwing Yellows onto a higher platform.
Like the Reds, Yellows will drown in water.


  B l u e  P i k m i n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The Blue Pikmin are found in the Forest Naval. The Blue Pikmin have one major
advantage. They can breathe in water. This opens up a great number of new
areas to search and new parts to find.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                             WHAT CAN PIKMIN DO?                            |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

There are a number of things that you require Pikmin to do throughout the
game.

  F i g h t i n g
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
There are a number of enemies that the Pikmin will have to meet in combat.
The Red Pikmin best for "hands on" combat. To attack you need to throw your
Pikmin at an enemy. You can also just use the C Stick to make your Pikmin
swarm the enemy. You will require a different approach to take down different
enemies. See the Piklopedia - A Guide to Enemies chapter for more information
on this.

Generally though, if you throw a Pikmin onto an enemies face or back, they
will be sheltered from harm. In contrast to this, if you throw a Pikmin onto
an enemy's feet, it will be slowed down.

There is another more effective way to take down foes. Get your Yellow Pikmin
to pick up a couple of Bomb Rocks. Throw these at an enemy. Two or three Bomb
Rocks are usually enough to take down a Bulborb. This is a good tactic with
two main advantages. It is often quicker. Secondly, you don't have as much
chance of loosing large numbers of Pikmin. 


  C a r r y i n g
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
There are a number of items in the world that the Pikmin can carry. This can
range from pellets, to bodies, to parts. Each item will require a certain
number of Pikmin to carry. The number of Pikmin required and then number of
Pikmin actually carrying the object will be shown above the object
(e.g. 22/20).


  H a r v e s t i n g
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
After your Pikmin have found a Pellet or killed an enemy, they can take it 
back to the Onion. The Onion will disperse a number of new seeds (Pikmin)
depending on what you brought back. This is an essential practice to get you
through the game. If there is more than one colour of Pikmin carrying a pellet
or body then the colour helping out the most will get the item. If there is
the same number of Pikmin of different colours, then the Pikmin that grabbed 
the object first will get it. 

There are 4 types of pellet. A 1 pellet, 5 pellet, 10 pellet and a huge 20
pellet. These come in red, yellow and blue. Okay, an example of how this
works. A 5 pellet will require 5 Pikmin to carry and will yield 5 Pikmin
seeds. Simple eh? 

Scattered around most areas of the game you will find Petal Posies. These are
flowers that contain pellets. Some will remain a single colour. Others will
change colour. The colour that the pellet it when the posy is brought down is
the colour it will stay. Every posy will yield a single 1 pellet. 

It is important to match the colour of pellet to the colour on Onion. If you
take a 1 pellet to the right Onion, you will be given 2 seeds. If you don't
then you will get 1 seed. A 5 pellet will produce 5 seeds for the right colour
and 3 for the wrong. A 10 will produce 10 for the right and 6 for the wrong
colour. Finally, a 20 pellet will only produce 10 seeds if taken to the
wrong colour Onion.


  C o n s t r u c t i o n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Occassionally, you will come across an "un-built" bridge, a pile of twigs or
a geyser. Set your Pikmin to work to construct these. An un-built bridge will
be turned into a bridge. A pile of twigs will create a longer single twig that
can be used as access by Pikmin. A geyser will propel Olimar onto higher 
ground.


  D e s t r u c t i o n
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Often in the course of the game, you will come across either vine gates or a
stone wall. Vine gates stretch across a gateway. They have holes in, which
distinguishes them from the stone wall gate. Vine gates can be taken down by
Pikmin attacking them. There are different coloured gates, the darker in 
colour, the longer it will take to bring down. I would not advise using less
than 20 Pikmin to bring down a gate, otherwise you may be waiting a long
while.

The stone walls cannot be brought down by Pikmin merely attacking them. To
bring down the walls you need to throw Bomb Rocks at it. It will take between
3 and 9 Bomb Rocks to bring a wall down. Again, the darker the wall, the more
Bomb Rocks it will require.


  P u s h i n g
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
You will come across your first need to push at the Impact Site. This is
pretty self explanatory. Throw your Pikmin at the object to be pushed (usually
a cardboard box, usually requiring 10 Pikmin) and they will push it out of the
way. 


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                                MAKING PIKMIN                               |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

The only way to producing more Pikmin, is to take carcasses or pellets to the
Onions. Red Pikmin will take pellets to the Red Onion, Blue to the Blue and
Yellow to the Yellow. If there is a mix of colours carrying an object, the
colour that contributing the most will take the item to their Onion. Remember,
if you cannot exceed more than 100 Pikmin out in the field. The number in the
Onions can go past 100, but you can't withdraw more than that.


  C a r c a s s e s
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
After you defeat an enemy, often it's carcass will be left behind. Not all
enemies will do this, but most will. Get your Pikmin to carry the carcass back
to the Onion. Each carcass will require a different number of Pikmin to carry
it, much the same as each item requires different numbers of Pikmin. When the
carscass is taken into the Onion, it will produce a number of new Pikmin
seeds. The number of seeds is dependant on which carcass was harvested. See
the Piklopedia section for more info on this.


  P e l l e t s
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Pellets come in 4 types. 1, 5, 10 and 20. They also come in all three colours.
Taking the correct coloured Pellets back to the correct coloured Onion will
produce more seeds than taking it to the wrong coloured Onion.

Pellets are usually found in Pellet Posies or they are dropped by enemies.
Some bigger pellets, like the 20s are found lying around in harder to reach
places. 


  P e l l e t  P o s i e s
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Pellet Posies are flowers that contain a 1 Pellet. The flower must be taken
down before the Pellet can be reached. Some Posies will have Pellets that
change colour in a sequence. Work out the sequence and throw a Pikmin onto
the head of the flower just before it changes to the colour you want. That
way, the flower will be taken down on the colour of Pellet you need and the
Pellet will remain that colour.

Candypop Buds are a rare flower that grow close to the ground. Throw up to 10
Pikmin inside the Bud and wait for it to pop them back out. When they emerge
the Pikmin will be transformed into Pikmin the same colour as the Candypop
Bud. FOr example, if you throw 10 Blue Pikmin into a Red Bud, you will gain
10 Red Pikmin and lose 10 Blue. This can be used to your advantage at various
points in the game.

|                          PIKMIN LEVELS OF GROWTH                           |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

To get through the game, you will need to make your Pikmin grow stronger.
There are 3 levels of growth for a Pikmin.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The leaf is the Pikmin's basic form. It will look like this after coming out
of the Onion.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The bud is the next evolution of the Pikmin. It is stronger and faster than
the leaf Pikmin. It can run faster, carry parts quicker, knock down gates
quicker and so on.


  F l o w e r  P i k m i n 
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Flower Pikmin are the strongest form of Pikmin. These are even quicker and
stronger than the bud Pikmin and considerably better than the leaf Pikmin.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                          HOW TO MAKE PIKMIN GROW                           |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

You know about the different forms of Pikmin now. But how do you get them to
grow? There are two methods.

  P l a n t - L i f e
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
When your Pikmin come out of the Onion, if you leave them in the ground, they
will grow on their own. Wait a few seconds and the leaf will appear. Wait 2 
minutes for it to turn into a bud and 3 minutes on top of that to turn it 
into a flower. This is probably the easiest method, if a little time
consuming.


  N e c t a r
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
If you can get your Pikmin to touch a drop of nectar, your Pikmin will grow
into a flower Pikmin. There are 4 sources of nectar. I can be found in certain
clumps of grass. The grass can be hard to spot, but your Pikmin will find it
for you. Nectar can also be found in piles of white rocks. These are far
easier to see than the grass. Just get your Pikmin to break them open. If
you come across an Iridescent Flint Beetle, throw a Pikmin directly onto its
back and sometimes it will give up a drop of nectar. Finally, you can get
nectar from a Honeywisp. This is a creature that floats around in the air,
almost aimlessly. Throw a Pikmin at it and it will drop the nectar that it is
carrying.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                                PIKMIN HEALTH                               |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Pikmin don't have actual health points per se, but they can stand up to some
certain things and not others. Say you have flower Pikmin and they are engaged
in a fight with an enemy. If they are thrown off too many times or flamed 
too much etc. they will lose their petals and return to being bud Pikmin.

There are numerous things that will kill a Pikmin. Red Pikmin are resistant
to fire, whilst Yellow and Blue will be burned. Blues can breathe in water,
whilst Yellow and Red will drown. Falling off of the map will result in a 
Pikmin being killed. If any Pikmin are too close to a Bomb Rock when it 
detonates, they will die. The major kill-factor is the enemies in the game.
Most enemies throughout the game can kill Pikmin in different ways. See the
Piklopedia section for more information. Finally, if you leave Pikmin behind
at the end of the day, they will not survive the night.

If a Pikmin is killed, occasionally a new seed will be planted in the ground
where it fell.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                            AT THE END OF THE DAY                           |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

This is a list of stuff that will happen at the end of each day, so take note.

• Any Pikmin that are not in their Onion at the end of the day will be left
  behind and eaten by the nocturnal wildlife.

• Pellet Posies will begin to grow back. Part way through the next day, they
  will be completely regrown.

• All parts will stay where you left them. So if you had to leave a part 
  halfway back to the Dolphin, it will be in the same positon you left it.

• Any Pellets or Carcasses that didn't get harvested at an Onion will be long
  gone.

• Enemies that are alive or partly hurt will recover their health fully.

• All seedlings that are planted around the Onions will be safe from enemy
  attacks, so you can leave them overnight.

• You may find a bridge to have been affected by Sheargrubs/Shearwigs if there
  is a nest nearby. 

Everything else will remain as it was when the day ended.

Enemies in Area: Goolix, Iridescent Flint Beetle, Mamuta, Pearly Clamclamp

The game will start at the Impact Site. The rather charred-looking wreckage of
the Dolphin can be seen behind Olimar. In a brief introduction the game, 
Olimar will explain about the missing ship parts and the 30 days worth of
breatheable air supply. This means that you have 30 days to recover 30 parts.
You work it out. Got there? Good. That's one part per day then genius.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-25
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red

Before you set out upon your parts recovery mission, let's go and meet the
stars of the game. A short way away from the Dolphin, you will come across a
strange dome-shaped item. This will reveal itself as the Red Onion, where
Red Pikmin are to be found. The Onion will then disperse a single 'seed'.
Once this seed has sprouted go over and pick it.

That's no seed! In fact it is your very first Pikmin. Browse the controls
that pop up on the screen if you like. Close to the Onion is a flower which
contains a Red 1 Pellet. Throw you Pikmin at it and it will harvest the
flower. If you throw it onto the head of the flower it will be harvested
faster.

Next, throw your Pikmin at the Pellet. It will now take the Pellet over to
the Onion. The Onion will disperse a further two Red Pikmin. There is another
flower close by. Harvest this and you will have 5 Pikmin.

If you stand at the Onion and look towards the Dolphin, on the left, upon a
ledge is a Red 5 Pellet. This requires 5 Pikmin to carry. Take over Pikmin and
get them to carry this back to the Onion. Your Pikmin will now total 10. Next
to where you found the Red 5 Pellet is a flower with a 1 Pellet. Harvest this
for a further 2 Pikmin.

Stand facing the Dolphin and over over to the left. There is a pathway up the
side of a tree trunk. At the top of here is a 1 Pellet. You will now have 14
Pikmin.

Close to the Onion you will see a cardboard box with the number 10 stamped on
it. It is sat between 2 rocks and is blocking youe path. Take 10 of your
Pikmin and throw them at the box. The Pikmin will now proceed to push the box
out of the way.

In this new area you will find the Dolphin's Main Engine. However, it will
require 20 Pikmin to lift it and at the moment you will only have 14. Next to
the engine is a slanted rock. Walk up this and go onto the box that you just
pushed. Here is another new area. 

In the space here can be  found a Red 5 Pellet and two 1 Pellets. Take these
back to the Onion. If you look to your left, there is an additional 1 Pellet
on a higher ledge. Throw a single Pikmin up there to recover it.

You will now have a total of 25 Pikmin. Go over to the engine and recover it
back to the Dolphin. It can fly again! Go you. After you have recovered the
engine, the day will end.

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red, Yellow and Blue

The second part in this area must be attained later, once you have discovered
the Yellow and the Blue Pikmin.

On your return to the Impact Site you will notice that there a lot of Pellet
Posies around the area, so get harvesting them.

Take out 15 Red Pikmin and 3 Yellow. Head over to where you found the engine.
Go up the slanted rock here and onto the raised area. Depending on how it
works out there will be one of two enemies up here. A Googlix or a Mamatu.
They will appear on alternating days. Leave your Yellows to one side and take
out the enemy. For information on killing these enemies consult the
Piklopedia.

With your Yellows pickup 3 Bomb Rocks from next to the cardboard box with
10 marked on it. Head back up on the raised area. Here there is a stone wall.
Bring it down with 3 Bomb Rocks. There is a red 20 Pellet here, but ignore
that for now. You are going to need 20 Blue Pikmin and 20 Red, so bring them
up. Take your Reds along the beach to the left. Here is a vine gate. Set them
to work bringing down the gate.

In this area there are 3 Clamclamps. You need to attack the one on the left
to gain the part. Take your Blues over to it. The part can be seen inside.
Whilst the Clamclamp is open, throw your Pikmin inside to attack. However,
when it is open to its maximum, it will slam shut and kill any Pikmin 
inside. You need to call your Pikmin back before this happens. Repeat this
until the Clamclamp gives up the Positron Generator. This requires 20 Pikmin
to carry.

Before you leave the area there is a 20 pellet of each colour to collect.
The red and blue are in the Positron Generator area. The Yellow is on a 
raised platform on the raised platform. Did you see what I did there? :)

                        Wogpole

The Forest of Hope is the second area. Whilst Day 1 was a bit of a training
exercise, this area is a little tougher. You will meet your first enemies in
the game, as well as one or two other surprises. The first thing that you
should notice is the bar at the top of the screen. This is the Sun Meter. 
Once the sun reaches the end of this bar, the day will end. Any Pikmin that
are not in their Onion at the end of the day will be lost. Keep that in mind.

Although you only really need to recover one part per day, it is easy to get
two or three in a single day in this area. Getting a few days in front can be
beneficial, especially if you get stuck later on.

|                            ETERNAL FUEL DYNAMO                             |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 40-60
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red

At first you will find yourself in an enclosed area. Take out all 25 of your
Red Pikmin. There are a couple of 1 Pellets in the immediate vicinity, so you
can collect those. Now, you will notice a large white gate of vines blocking
your path. Throw your Pikmin at this gate and they will begin to attack it.

After a minute or so they will drop it down to the ground. There are a number
of these gates that you will come across in the game. The darker the colour
of the gate, the harder it will be to break down.

In this small enclosure you will find a patch of grass or two. It isn't very
easy to spot, but when you are close your Pikmin will start to pick it. This
grass contains nectar. If your Pikmin come into contact with nectar the leaf
on top of their heads will grow into a flower. Flower Pikmin are stronger and
fast than ones with leaves.

There are three other ways to find nectar. Patches of white rocks on the
ground will give nectar. These are easier to spot than the grass. The other
way is to find a Honeywisp. These will float around carrying nectar beneath
them. Throw Pikmin at them to get them to drop it.

The final way is the most effective. After the Onion has dispersed a seed,
leave it in the ground. After a while the leaf of the Pikmin will turn into a
bud. Leave it a while longer and this will mature into a flower.

Once you have the gate opened, head out to the right. Here you will notice a
few things. First of all you will see your first enemies in the game, Dwarf
Bulborbs. The best way to take these out is from the rear. Move around the
back of them and the swarm them with your Pikmin. They will each drop a 1
Pellet. Take them and the bodies back to the Onion. To the right of this is a
juicy Red 10 Pellet. Get 10 of your Pikmin to take this to the Onion. The
final thing to notice is your first part in this area, the Eternal Fuel
Dynamo. Recover this with 40 Pikmin. 


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                              WHIMSICAL RADAR                               |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Yellow

Take twenty or so Pikmin and leave the home area where the Dolphin rests.
Head over to the right, past where you found the Eternal Fuel Dynamo. Around
here are a few 1 Pellet flowers. Next to them is a rusty can with strange
rocks inside it. You will require these later but for now take on the Spotty
Bulborb.

To defeat it you need to go around the back of it, without waking it up. Now
throw your Pikmin at its back. When it shakes off the Pikmin, call them back.
Make sure that you get out of the way of its front end, otherwise your Pikmin
will become lunch. Keep throw Pikmin at his back until you have drained all of
its health. You can find it useful to leave one or two Pikmin in front of it.
Sacrifice them and you will get a clear shot at the back. Usually you don't
need to do this with a Spotty Bulborb though. Take its body back to the Onion.

When you are ready, there is another white vine gate to the right. Get your
Pikmin to bring it down. Behind the gate are a Dwarf Bulborb and a Spotty
Bulborb. Take them out. 

Behind the Spotty Bulborb you will find the Yellow Onion. The Yellow Onion is
home to the Yellow Pikmin. The Yellow Onion will now disperse a single Yellow
Pikmin. Yellow Pikmin are lighter than the others, so they can be thrown
higher. As well as this, Yellow Pikmin can handle the Bomb Rocks like the ones
in the rusty tin cans. 

Now, get the Yellow Pikmin to collect the 1 Pellets next to the Yellow Onion.
There should be others in the surrounding area as well as the body of the
Spotty Bulborb. If you are following the guide step by step this will probably
all you have time for on Day 2.

In this area you will see another tin can containing Bomb Rocks. There are
also 2 rock walls, similar to the vine gates. You need to use the Bomb Rocks
to open these. Take a few Yellow Pikmin and go over to the tin can. Throw a
single Pikmin and to find a Bomb Rock and return to you. Whatever you do, do
not call them back with B otherwise they will detonate the bombs where they
stand and return to you.

Go over to the stone wall nearest the Yellow Onion. There are some Bomb Rocks
in front of it. Throw the single Pikmin at the wall and it will detonate the
bomb. Stand well back. This bomb will cause the others nearby to detonate as
well. This will bring the wall down straight away.

Behind the wall are 2 Dwarf Bulborb along with a number of Sheargrubs. Fight
Sheargrubs by swarming them with your Pikmin or throwing Pikmin directly at
them. Take them all out using your Red Pikmin. Once you have dealt with these
look at the ledge the left hand side of this area. Up here is the Whimsical
Radar. Throw your 20 Red Pikmin up onto the ledge and they will take the 
part back.

If you Press Y, you can now view world maps and the location of missing parts.

Before you move on grab your Yellow Pikmin. Get a Bomb Rock for 3 of them.
More Bomb Rocks can be found in the tin can in large area just outside the
home area. Take your Pikmin back to the home area. There is a stone wall here.
Use the Bomb Rocks to take down the wall. This will allow you access to a new
area, as well as creating a shortcut for bringing back new parts.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                            EXTRAORDINARY BOLT                              |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Yellow

To attain this part you will need to use 9 Bomb Rocks. If you have used a lot
today, you may need to do this over 2 days. Bomb Rocks can be found in the
open area just outside the home area, in the place where you found the Yellow
Onion and in front of the stone wall that you blew up to get the last part.
Take 6 Yellow Pikmin and 30 Red then head out to the area where you found the
Whimsical Radar. Pick up 6 Bomb Rocks along the way. At the opposite end of
this area you will find a dark stone wall. In front of it there are a number
of Sheargrubs, so take these out using Red Pikmin. This will take 9 Bomb Rocks
to bring down. Throw your Bomb Rocks at it. If you have any Bomb Rocks
remaining on this day use these as well. On the next day use the required
number of Bomb Rocks to open the way. Behind this is the Extraordinary Bolt.
This will take 30 Pikmin to carry.

Once you have grabbed the part, the Pikmin will take it back to the ship. 
If you have opened the stone wall in the home area they will take it back that
way as it is the shortest. They could well bump into a Bulborb and a Dwarf
Bulborb along the way, so you may want to clear these before passing through.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                              NOVA BLASTER                                  |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : No
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Yellow


Take 30 or so Red Pikmin and go through the stone wall gate in the home area.
Go past the turning where you got the Extraordinary Bolt from and look to the
right. Here you will find a dark vine gate. This will take a couple of minutes
to take down, so get your Pikmin to work on it. You could go off and do
something else whilst they are doing this (effective time-management and all
that). Once the gate is down, head through. Watch for the puddle of water on
the left, don't let any Pikmin fall in. Further up this path are 2 Dwarf 
Bulborb and a large Bulborb. Take the small ones out first so that they don't
get in the way.

Once you have defeated these, head over to the Nova Blaster which is just
behind. This is a non-essential part, meaning that you can finish the game
without it if you really wish. However, its nice and easy to get and we're
here now, so take it back. This will require 30 Pikmin. On your way back on
the left hand side you will see a large yellow 20 Pellet on top of a tree
stump. Get to the side of it and throw 20 Yellows up there to harvest it. 


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                              SHOCK ABSORBER                                |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red


This is the final part in the area which can be accessed without the use of
Blue Pikmin. Take about 30 Red Pikmin out. Exit the home area through the
vine gate. You will now be in the open area. Head out to the left. You might
come across a couple of Dwarf Bulborbs and Petal Posies here if you haven't
taken them out already. There will be a ledge here with a 5 Pellet upon it.
Throw you Pikmin up here. Go to the left and head through the puddle of water
here. There will be a tree root that you can walk up. Up here, head back to
the right, past the Bulborb and collect your Pikmin. Take out the Bulborb.
Behind him is the Shock Absorber. Use 30 Pikmin to get this back to the ship.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-30
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Blue

The final 3 parts in this area require the use of Blue Pikmin.

Take out 20 Red and 20 Blue Pikmin. Head out of the vine gate into the open
area. The Dwarf Bulborbs will probably have reappeared so take them out. Now
head straight forward. There is an un-built bridge here. There will also be
a Sheargrub nest, so take them out. Set your Reds on with the task of building
the bridge. Take your Blues across the water. There is another un-built bridge
here. Throw your Blues up and get them to build it. Once both bridges are
complete, take 20 Pikmin over to the Sagitarrius and get them to take it back
to the Dolphin.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 15-25
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red, Yellow and Blue


Take 20 Reds, 20 Blues and 3 Yellows. and go towards the area where you found
the Yellow Onion. Take a left as soon as you get into this area. Here there is
a stone wall. If you haven't already blown it up with Bomb Rocks do so. It
will fall in 3 hits. Behind here are a couple of Bulborbs. Take care of these
with your Reds. After you have dealt with these group your Blues. Walk them
itno the water nearby. Now, throw them up behind the cardboard box and they
will push it out of the way. Now take your Pikmin across this bridge.

In this area you will meet the Burrowing Snagrets. These are huge, long necked
birds that burroe underground and suprise their prey. There are three of these
here, but the one holding the part is right at the other end, nearest the home
area. Just run straight past the others.

These can be a real pain to defeat. The best way is to wait until it is about
the reveal itself, then move your Pikmin over to it. When it bursts up, Pikmin
will grab onto its head, causing maximum damage. However this can be a little
tricky, so the next best thing to do, is to wait until it pops up and get
behind it, out of the way of its beak. Now throw your Pikmin onto the back of
its neck. When it burrows underground, group your Pikmin and repeat. This 
will probably take a while. Try and keep behind the Snagret so that your
Pikmin are safe.

Sometimes the Snagret will get stuck on it's way out of the ground. Throw as
many Pikmin on it's face and as possible. The face is it's weak point so more
Pikmin means more damage. Eventually you will wear it down and it will give
up the Geiger Counter. Get 15 Blues to grab the part and they will drop down
into the water and take it back to the Dolphin. However, if you make the Reds
or Yellows do this, they will take it the long way and get eaten by the
remaining Burrowing Snagrets. It's up to you, but I know which way I would
choose.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Blue

This is the final part in the area. Take out 20-30 Blues and 20 Reds. Head
out of the stone wall gate at the home area. Go towards where you found the
Nova Blaster. Just as you move through the vine gate you will see another vine
gate in a puddle of water, on the left hand side. Take your Blues and get them
to take down the gate. Head back out of the vine gate and go to the right.
Throw your Reds onto the ledge up here. 

Once your Blues have taken down the vine gate, pick them up and go through.
You will find yourself on the ledge with your Red Pikmin. Behind you is 
another vine gate. Get your Pikmin to bring it down.

Go through the gate and in an open clearance there is an Armoured Cannon
Beetle scuttling around. This will be your first meeting with the Armoured
Cannon Beetle unless you have met the one in the Distant Spring.

The first thing that you should note is the beetle has a powerful attack.
It will first suck in some air. It will then fire a large boulder-like ball
out of it's mouth. This is kind of like a bowling ball. If any of your
pins... I mean Pikmin get in the way they will be killed. Large numbers of
Pikmin can be taken out all in one go unless you are wary.

Okay, take your Pikmin and stand in front of the beetle. It will then draw
in air. Whilst it is doing this you need to throw Pikmin in the beetle's
mouth.  If you are struggling with this, try and get nice and close. You
won't be hurt as long as you get a Pikmin in the mouth. If you get one or
more in it will open up it's protective shell on it's back.After this, a red
skin undershell will be made vulnerable. Throw as many Pikmin on to this
shell as possible, before it closes up. When it does close up, repeat the
process. After a couple of goes at this the Armoured Cannon Beetle will be
defeated.

In an alcove at the back of the clearing is the Radiation Canopy. Get 30 
Pikmin to carry the part back to the Dolphin. Get another 30 to take the 
Armoured Cannon Beetle's body back to an Onion.

Parts Required to Open: 5

Parts in Area         : #1 Ionuim Jet, Analog Computer, Anti-Dioxin Filter,
                        Automatic Gear, Gravity Jumper, Guard Satelitte,

                        Blowhog, Male Sheargrub, Puffstool, Shearwig,
                        Wollywog
                        

The "belly button" apparently. This is another new area which is a lot more
challenging than the previous two. It is set in a deep cave in the centre of
the forest. The first thing that you should note is that there a lot of stone
walls in this area. You don't actually need to take any of them down, but it
will save time. The only one that I take down at first is the one next to the
home area. There is another, but that's not until later on.

To get the Bomb Rocks; first take out 6 Yellow Pikmin. Drop down behind the
Yellow Onion and drop onto the land next to the middle pool here. Go through
the opening and drop onto the land below. There is a stash of Bomb Rocks in
the corner here. Collect them. You now need to throw the Pikmin back up the
way you came. You on the other hand need to walk all the way around. Meet
them at the top, but don't call them with B, just walk into them. Repeat this
in this pool as well and you'll have the Bomb Rocks and be free to do with
them what you will. You can find more Bomb Rocks by looking at the Gravity
Jumper section.

I would advise using your second or third day to build bridges, knock down
walls and take out enemies. This will save you a lot of trouble later on.
There are two briges to be built close to the home area. Take down the stone
wall also close to the home area. There are a number of Firey Blowhogs and
Sheargrubs in the centre area so use your Red Pikmin on them. The fire will
not hurt the Red Pikmin so they should make short work of the enemies.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 15-25
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red and Blue

To start off take out 20 Red Pikmin. There is a vine gate close to the Red
Onion so get them to take this down. Now, head over behind the Yellow Onion.
Here the are a few pools of water. On the left-hand-most one you will find
the Blue Onion. Blue Pikmin. w00t. These bad boys can breathe in the water,
which will come in very handy. 

Spend a while building up your Blue Pikmin numbers. There are a few pellets
in the surrounding area, so harvest them. Once you have done this you will
have 16 Blue Pikmin. Great. Head over to the next pool over. At the edge of 
this is an opening which will allow you to drop to a lower pool. Do so. In
the corner of this pool you will find Bomb Rocks. These will be useful, so
remember where they are. In the water is the #1 Ionium Jet. Get at least 15
Blue Pikmin on this.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                              AUTOMATIC GEAR                                |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 15-25
Pikmin Colours Used   : Any

Get 15 Pikmin of any colour. I usually use Red as they are usually the most
abdundant. Behind the stone wall next to the home area is a pile of sticks.
These are perched on the edge of a cliff. Throw your Pikmin at it and they
will extend out a long stick. Once this stick has reached the other platform
they will hop along it and pick up the Automatic Gear.


.----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|                               SPACE FLOAT                                  |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : No
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 25-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Any

No doubt you will have seen a Breadbug running about the place. He is a large
red coloured bug that will pay your Pikmin very little attention. He is holding
the Space Float, but how to get it from him? You can try an open attack, but
this is very ineffective. The best way to do this is to attack a Petal Posy.
Now, leave the Pellet out in the open until Breadbug comes past. When he sees
the Pellet, he will grab it and try to take it back to his hole. You need to
throw at least two Pikmin at the Pellet and get them to have a tug-of-war
with him. Eventually the Pikmin will come out on top and drag the Pellet
back to the Onion. When the Pellet gets sucked up, so will the Breadbug. This
will deal him some serious damage even if it doesn't kill him. Use a swarm
attack to finish him off if need be. Once he is dead, the Space Float will be
left behind. It will require 25 Pikmin to recover this the short distance.

|                      ANALOG COMPUTER AND THE LIBRA                         |
'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Parts?      : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40 (Analog Computer), 15-25 (Libra)
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red, Yellow and Blue

These two parts should be attempted all in one go, this will save you time and
hassle. For now take out around 30 Reds.

Exit the home area via the stone wall gate. Head to the left but take a right
asap. Here you will find an un-built ramp. Throw your Pikmin at it to get
them to construct it. You can leave them to it and get on with something else
if you like. Anyway, once that ramp is done walk down it and you will find
another ramp that requires building. When this is built you will be in a 
beach-like area. There are a number of Firey Blowhogs on this beach. Assign
a few Pikmin to each and they will take them down usually without damage. The
Red Pikmin are invulnerable to fire.

After you have cleared the way, take a look at your map. You will see a
narrow path to the east. Head towards the entrance of this path. There will
be a Firey Blowhog here, so take it out if you have not done so already. At
the entrance to the path, there is a vine gate blocking your way. Set your
Pikmin to work. Once this is down, I would advise doing something else for
the rest of the day, you will want a full day to make the trip for these
two parts.

Take out 35 Red, 15 Yellow and 20 Blue Pikmin. Take these to the narrow
path. A short way down the path are some fire geysers. Wait until they stop,
then move past them one at a time. Further down the path is an un-built
bridge, on the left hand side. Get your Yellow and Red Pikmin to construct it.

Take your 20 of your Red Pikmin and all of your Blues further down the path.
Make your way past the fire geysers one at a time. In the pool of water here
is the Analog Compter. Recover it onto the land using your Blues. Once the
part is on land, get 20 of your Reds to take it back. The Reds, being immune
to fire can get past the fire geysers without being harmed.

There is a Red Candypop Bud next to the pool. This will turn what ever colour
Pikmin that is thrown in it into a Red one. So in theory you could take 20
less Reds down with you and change the Blues into Reds to get the part back.
I don't like this method but each to their own. 

Take your remaining Pikmin back to the bridge. Hopefully it will be completed
by now. Take some of your Blues and throw them into the water. They will
unblock the geyser here for you. Next, take your Yellows and throw them up
the cliff. Use the geyser to get up the and meet them. Throw them up to the 
Libra and they will bring it down from the cliff. As soon as it is down, get
your Reds to take it back to the Dolphin without being harmed by the fire
geysers. Take the rest of your Pikmin back up the path safely.

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 40-60
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

Look at your map. In the lake you will see that there is another part. Take
about 45 Blue Pikmin over to it. You will need 40 to take the part back, but
you will need to take out some Wollywogs on the way. As you get close to the 
part you will meet these Wollywogs. These can be dangerous and can take out a 
lot of Pikmin if you get this wrong. Okay, first of all you need to make them
slam into the ground. Make sure that there are no Pikmin underneath or they
will be history. When it is on the ground you will have time to throw 5 or
6 Pikmin on its back. When it slams the ground again, the Pikmin will be
thrown off, so you need to repeat this a few times. Once you have taken out
all 3 of the FROGS you will be free to collect the part.

Pikmin Needed to Carry: 25-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Yellow

Take out 25 Yellow Pikmin. Head over to the edge of the lake. If you look on
your map you will see a part on a raise bit of land nearby. Go over to it and
you will see an un-built ramp on the land. Throw your Pikmin up there and they
will begin to construct it. Once it is complete you can access the Gravity
Jumper. Get your Yellows to take it back to the Dolphin. Behind this raised
and you can also find some extra Bomb Rocks.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Yellow

Take out 25 Yellow Pikmin. Head down the path nearest to the Red Onion. Here
you will encounter a dark stone wall, unless you have blown it up. If you
haven't then check your map and head around until you are at the other side of
it. Once you are, you will see a dark vine gate. Set your Pikmin to work on
it. You may meet some Shearwigs along the way, so take them out. Next you
need to get 6 Bomb Rocks. Take 6 Pikmin and gain them from the two locations.

Ready? Good. As soon as the vine gate opens take your bomb rocked-up Pikmin
and throw them at the dark stone wall on the left. Watch out for the fire
geysers though, Pikmin aren't resistant to fire like Reds. 9 Bomb Rocks will
open the stone wall up. Gather all your Pikmin and head through.

You will be in what appears to be an empty clearing. But soon a shadow will
appear and wham! 4 giant legs stomp down out of nowhere. This is the Beady
Long Legs. This guy can be lethal. Try and keep underneath his body, that way
you will avoid him stomping feet (to an extent). You can now do a couple of
things. You can throw Pikmin at his legs to slow him down. Then attack by
throwing the Pikmin at his body. Here's a tip, aim your cursor in his body's
shadow, that way you will always land the Pikmin on his body. I personally
don't bother throwing Pikmin at his legs. Instead just stay underneath and
attack his body. Try and save your Pikmin if it looks like they are about to
get stomped. The Beady Long Legs will keep shaking your Pikmin off, so you
need to keep grouping them back up. Eventually, you will drain all of its
health and he will drop the Guard Satallite. This can also be achieved with
Red Pikmin, but it is harder as you can't throw them high enough, unless the
Beady Long Legs brings his body closer to the ground. The part will take 20
Pikmin to carry.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Red

This is the final part in this area. It is located in an area at the very top
of the map. Take out 40 Red Pikmin and head on over there. Here you will come
into contact with the Puffstool, who is basically a walking mushroom. Go over
and thrown your Pikmin at it. Make sure they are attacking its underside, as
it is well protected on top. If you keep at this it will eventually fall over
and reveal its entire underside. A cue for a big attack. At first it will seem
that it isn't going to attack, but every so often it will stop and start to
bulge, That is your cue to get out of there. It will release a cloud of pink
spores. If your Pikmin come into contact with these spores, they will turn a
purple colour and come and attack Olimar! If this happens run away hopefully
your healthy Pikmin will kill the purple one. If one latches on to you, then
God help you. You can try and burn it off with the nearby fire geyers but this
only occassionally works. Once the spores have cleared go in for another
attack.

After you have defeated the Puffstool it will give up the Omega Stabilizer.
This requires 30 Pikmin to carry. Also take back the Puffstools body which
requires 10.

The Distant Spring is pretty difficult. There are a great deal of enemies in
this area and a great deal of parts. The parts aren't so easy to get as in
the Forest of Hope and the Forest Naval, so I hope that you're ready.

If you enter the Distant Spring before Day 16, the Smokey Progg will be in
the vicinity. It can be found on the small islands in the main body of water.
You can go over and break it out if you wish. Sometimes though, it will make 
it's way over to the home area around the Onions and break out of it's egg.
See the Piklopedia for more info on the Smokey Progg.

When you have finally drained all of it's health. Take the egg that is dropped
back to an Onion. This is worth 100 seeds! Think which colour Pikmin you are
short of. Blue will be in constant demand on this level, so bear that in mind. 

If and when you have taken out the Smokey Progg, you need to turn your
attention to a different group of enemies. Close to the home area there is a
Windy Blowhog. This is a large purple floating creature. He won't cause any
damage but he will blow your Pikmin far and wide, even into the water. The
best idea is to take out 20 or so Blue Pikmin, as to safeguard them against
the water. Keep out of the way of it's front end and try and get behind or
underneath it. Throw the Pikmin up at it and if you get enough up there, it
will be brought to earth. Once it is down, use a swarm to finish it off. It
will drop 5 tasty 5 Pellets. Yum. 

This will probably take up a lot of the first day unless you haven't come
across the Smokey Progg. The very next thing that you need to do is take out
the two Bulbears close to the Windy Blowhog. The first one is out in the open,
but the second is guarding something. After killing the second look behind it.
Here you will find a stash of Bomb Rocks. There are two stone walls that need
blowing up in close proximity. The first is to the left of the Bomb Rocks.
This will require 6 Bomb Rocks to take down. Unfortunately for you, you only
have access to 4 per day at the moment. Throw todays 4 and then return
tomorrow.

The other stone wall is over by the home area. This is a stronger gate that
takes 9 Bomb Rocks to break. There are more Bomb Rocks that you can get, but
this seems like too much messing around to me. Just use the 4 in the first
stash and let them reappear on a new day. This should only take 3 days maximum
and can be done whilst you are collecting parts.

There are a few Yellow Woolywogs in the area, you could take these out before
moving onto your first part if you wish. There is also the extremely annoying
Swooping Snitchbug. I hate this creature with a passion. Take them down as
soon as you get the chance.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 50-70
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

Remove 50 Blue Pikmin. Head over to the stone wall near the Bomb Rocks. To
the left, at the waters edge is a un-built bridge. There is also a Yellow
Wollywog nearby so kill it before you continue. Set half of the Pikmin to work
on this bridge.

Walk across the water and you will see another un-built bridge that will join
up to the other. In front of it there is a Sheargrub nest. Kill the Sheargrubs
and then set the other half to work here. Eventually the two halves will join
up. On the patch of land next to the bridge you will find the Gluon Drive. It
takes a massive 50 Pikmin to carry this back. Use Blues as to avoid casualties
in the closeby water.

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

This is made a little easier if you have the stone wall open near the Bomb
Rock stash. Draw out 30 Blue Pikmin and head through the stone wall gate. If
it isn't open then you can go through the water next to it. You will now be 
in a narrow area. There are 2 Yellow Wollywogs in this area, kill these before
moving on.

There is a white vine gate on the left hand bank of this stream. Set your 
Pikmin to work to bring it down. Once the gate is down, head through. You 
will now be in a clearing. The Zirconium Rotor is on the left hand side. It
will take 30 Pikmin to carry.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 25-45
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

Take 25 Blue Pikmin to the stream near where you found the Zirconium Rotor.
On the opposite bank there is another vine gate. You can take this down now
if you wish or wait until later. Taking it down may take a while so get a 
good number of flower Pikmin on the job. Once the gate is down, go through
and head to the left.

There is a small Shearwig nest here. Kill them and move over to the left.
There are a couple of hollow tree trunks here. Inside the largest is the
Pilot's Seat.

If you don't take the vine gate down, head a little further down stream. There
will be an opening on the bank. In the hollow tree trunk, you will find the
Pilot's Seat. This will take 25 Pikmin to lift.

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

If you head out into the water near the home area and past where the Smokey
Progg egg was, there is a Windy Blowhog. Take 30 Pikmin and get them to
destroy any nearby Yellow Wollywogs. 

Close to the Blowhog are Water Dumple and a Windy Blowhog. Take out the
Water Dumples by swarming them. Now move onto the Blowhog. You should have
dealt with the one near the home area before, so kill this one in the same
way (see the start of this section if not).

After you have defeated the Blowhog, the Interstellar Radio will drop from
the sky. Get 20 Blues to take it back to the Dolphin.

Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

Take 30 Blues and go out into the water behind the Yellow Onion. There is an
un-built bridge on the beach here. Take out the nearby Shearwig nest, then set
25-30 Pikmin to work building the bridge. Go onto the beach and you will come
across a Bulbear. Kill it. On this beach you will also find another source of
Bomb Rocks.

At the far end of the beach is the Massage Machine. It will take 30 Pikmin
to carry. As soon as the bridge is complete, you can take this part back to
the Dolphin.

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 20-40
Pikmin Colours Used   : Yellow and Blue

Take out 20 Yellow Pikmin.

Okay, little bit of a weird explaination here. Stand at the Red Onion and 
face the Yellow Onion. Go to the left of the Yellow Onion, onto the beach.
Here you will come across a narrow path. Arrange your Pikmin into 2 groups of
10. This path is so narrow that you can't get them across all at once. 

Take one group and slowly take them along the path. It is possible to get
along here without losing any, but what the hell, you can get some more Pikmin
if you need to. Once you are here leave the group and fetch the rest of the
Pikmin. When you have all 20 in place, throw them up onto the ledge where the
part is sat. If you can't get them up, try from a different angle, and aim
for the edge of the platform. Once all 20 have grabbed the part, they will
bring it down.

It is possible that the part and the Pikmin will fall into the water here.
You need to accept this loss. If they don't fall in you can take them back
to the Onion if you wish.

You need 20 Blue Pikmin to come and recover the part.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 15-25
Pikmin Colours Used   : Blue

You need to have opened up the stone wall gate near the home area before
attempting to recover this part. It would also be advisable to have killed
all the enemies that you will meet whilst taking this part back to the
Dolphin.

Take 20 Blue Pikmin and head the the stream near the Pilot's Seat. Go all the
way down the stream and follow it's path dead ahead. You will come to a low
wall with a geyser next to it. Throw your Pikmin on top of the wall and then
use the geyser to get up there yourself.

Move to the opposite end of the wall. Across a small gap, the Ionium Jey #2
is to be found. You need to throw the Pikmin across to it. This is a pretty
long jump for the Blues to make. 

Point the cursor at the part and keep Olimar running against the wall. Now
throw your Pikmin across. Hopefully they will land on the platform and grab
the part. You need 15 Pikmin to carry it.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Essential Part?       : Yes
Pikmin Needed to Carry: 30-50
Pikmin Colours Used   : Yellow and Blue

In the far corner of this area, past where you found the second Ionium Jet,
you will find the Chronos Reactor. Getting it back to the ship is quite a
procedure.

Take at least 20 Blues with you. In the water close to the part is a raised
platform. On this platform is a yellow Candypop Bud. Throw your Blue onto
this ledge, then use the geyser to get up there yourself.

Throw your Blues into the Candypop Bud. Once 10 are in there the bud will
pop open and out will pop 10 Yellows. Do the same to your remaining Pikmin.
You now need to throw them over the channel of water and onto the beach
opposite. 

Once all your Pikmin are safely on land, follow them over. Take them over to
the high ledge on which the part rests. Once the Yellows have brought the 
Chronos Reactor down from the ledge, throw them all in the nearby blue
Candypop Bud. 

Now that all your Pikmin are blue again, they are free to carry the part
over the water and back to the ship.

Parts in Area         : Secret Safe

Enemies in Area       : Emperor Bulblax

The Final Trial is home to a single part. However, it isn't as easy as walking
up to it and carrying it back to the ship. It is hidden behind numerous 
puzzles and more importantly, the strongest enemy in the game.

There are numerous ways that you can set about these puzzles and taking on
the final boss. I've done my best to list the best way of achieving these
goals. I would strongly advise you to have 2 days left before you attempt
this. Trying to cram it all into a single day is extremely difficult.

The first thing you should notice at the start is the 3 coloured INSERTS.
You can use these if you are a little low on Pikmin numbers. Simply convert
which ever colour Pikmin you have enough of, to the colour you have too few
of. Simple. Moving on...

First of all withdraw about 60 Blues. Take them over to the nearby shoreline.
You will see an unbuilt bridge on a nearby strip of land. Take your Blues over
and set 30 of them to work building this bridge.

Next to the bridge is a stone wall. Go past this wall and you see another
unbuilt bridge. Set the second 30 to work building this bridge. Now return to
the Onions. 

Withdraw 3 Yellows. To the right of the unbuilt bridge is another patch of
land. Throw the Yellows over the narrow inlet and onto this land. Walk along
this island and at the far end is a protruding rock. Stand on this rock and
you can throw the Yellows onto a higher cliff nearby. 

Once you have the Pikmin on this higher platform, walk down into the water
next to this cliff. Close by you will see a geyser. Use this to get Olimar
on top of this platform. Now head over and group the Pikmin.

On a ledge to the right you will see a pipe. Inside this pipe are Bomb Rocks.
Precious Bomb Rocks. Throw the Pikmin up to collect them. Once they have
them, remember that you can't call the Pikmin without them detonating the
bomb. Throw the Pikmin down the way that you can up (i.e. onto the protruding
rock). 

Head down and group the Yellows together by walking into them. Throw them
across the narrow inlet. Hopefully by now the Blue should have finished work
on the first bridge. Once they have, walk across the bridge and use the
Bomb Rocks to take down the stone wall. Once the wall is down, put all the
Blues back in the Onion.

The keen eyed among you will have noticed a box blocking your path. There are
two ways that you can clear it. One method uses Yellows, the other uses Reds.
I'll tell you both and you can use which ever seems easier to you.


  M e t h o d  1 - R e d s
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Take 10 Reds out of the Onion. Face towards the shoreline and head to the
left. Here you will come across a path covered with fire geysers. The Reds
are fire-resistant though, so don't worry about them burning up. Throw them
as far into the fire as you can. 

Once all 10 are on the path, go into the water to the right of this path.
Group the Pikmin by calling them and then walk along the path, using the
C-Stick to guide the Reds. Once they are on the other side de-group them.

Walk back over the two bridges that the Blues built. Stand on the second and
you will be close to where you left the Reds. In fact you can call them from
here. Once they are grouped, walk towards the box, using the C-Stick to 
guide the Reds towards it too. Adjust the camera angle if it helps. 

As soon as the Reds come into contact with the box, they will push it out of
the way.


  M e t h o d  2 - Y e l l o w s
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Personally I prefer this method, but do what ever is good for you. Take out
10 Yellows. Walk across the first bridge and stand on the end of the second.
To the left you will see a sloping wall and behind that is a flat platform.
Throw the Yellows over the slanting wall, so that they land on the 
platform behind.

Once the Yellows are sat on this platform, call them to group them together.
Now, walk towards the box and guide the Pikmin with C-Stick to make them do
the same. As soon as they touch the box, they will push it out of the way.

Once the box is moved, you can walk up a slope next to it and use it as a
bridge. The ledge that this leads to has nectar-giving grass, so you can use
this to upgrade your Pikmin.

Now that the box is out of the way, you can focus on the next part. Set your
10 Pikmin to destroy the nearby vine gate (INSERT). Go and withdraw some more
if you want to speed things up a bit. 

As soon as the gate is down, you can head out into the final boss' arena.
You really don't want a fight yet though, so keep well away from the 
suspicious looking plant-life in the centre of this area...

Instead stick to the edge and head around to the right. You will come to
another vine gate. Set your Pikmin to knock this down too. Behind the
gate you can walk onto a large grassy area. Around this area you will find
3 sources of Bomb Rocks, as well as the grass the will give up nectar.

Once you have done this I would advise you to take your 'min back to the
Onion and end the day. You really haven't got enough time to take on the
boss at this stage. If it's your last day then you are going to have to
try anyway.


  Day 2
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Withdraw 20 Yellows and 80 Reds. Take them to the gate just outside the
main boss arena. You might want to take them a few groups at a time, as it
can be hard to fit all 100 on the bridges at the same time. 

Once you have all your Pikmin in place, take your 20 Yellows to the grassy
area with the Bomb Rocks, behind the boss arena. There are 3 sources of
Bomb Rocks here, so get all 20 of your Yellows stocked up. Now take them
back to where you left the Reds.

Leave them in a separate group from the Reds. Make sure the Reds are close
at hand so you can use them to attack. De-select the Yellow group and
walk into a single one of them. Take this single Yellow and walk towards
the plant-life in the centre of the boss arena. 

Emperor Bulblax will now reveal himself. Try and lure him towards the 
entrance, where all your Pikmin are. Throw the Yellow at him and one of
two things will happen. Either the Yellow will throw the Bomb Rock at
him, or Emperor Bulblax will eat the Yellow. Either way the Bomb Rock will
explode and Emperoro Bulblax will be stunned.

As soon as you have thrown the Yellow, you need to run back and group a
large portion of Reds. As soon as Emperor Bulblax is stunned, throw as
many Reds on his face as you can. Hammer that A button! After a few 
seconds, Blublax will recover and knock all of your Pikmin to the 
ground. You need to quickly group them together and run back to the
entrance. If you are not quick enough, Bulblax will swallow all your
Pikmin with one flick of his tongue.

You now need to grab another Yellow and repeat this process. You should
be able to take a large chunk of his health by doing this. You may find
though, as Emperor Bulblax's health moves into the red, he will get wise to
your plan.

Instead of swallowing up the Yellow, he will jump high into the air, then
come down and squash the Yellow. This way Bulblax doesn't get stunned. When
this happens, it is time to abandon the Bomb Rock tactic.

Get a group of about 30 Reds together and take them into the main arena.
Go to the side of Bulblax and throw your Pikmin on the side of his face.
Avoid his tongue at all costs. When he leans forward and wags his 
tongue, you need to throw as many Pikmin onto the side of his face as
you can. 

As before he will knock them off after a few seconds. You need to group
them up and get them the hell of out the way before Bulblax swallows your
entire group up. Repeat this process until Emperor Bulblax is dead in the
ground.

Once defeated, Bulblax will give up the final part- the Secret Safe! This
requires 40 Pikmin to carry. Oddly, he will also give up some pellets.
Why do you need them? Anyway have your remaining Pikmin take the Secret
Safe back to the ship.

On doing so, the game comes to an end. Watch the end sequence and marvel at

Depending on how you faired in the game, you will get one of three endings.


 F a i l u r e
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
If you reach the end of Day 30 without gaining at least all 25 essential
parts, Olimar will attempt to take off anyway. This is ill-fated and the
Dolphin will return to the surface with a bump. The Pikmin will take a worse-
for-wear Olimar and carry him to an Onion. He will be turned into an 
Olimar/Pikmin. An Olimarin if you will. You can continue from your last save
after this.

This occurs if you recover the 25 essential ship parts, but fail to attain all
30 parts. For example, if you get 29 parts, but fail to get the Secret Safe,
you will get this ending.

Olimar will take off successfully, watched by a Pikmin of each colour.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
To get this ending you need to have recovered all 30 parts. A whole host of
Pikmin will wave off Olimar as he sets off back home. A passing Bulborb will
be taken down by the Pikmin, showing that they have learned to defend
themselves under the guidance of Olimar. As Olimar leaves the atmosphere a
number of different coloured Onions will follow him.

A montage of the will run through the enemies in the game. The Happy End.

 |     ATTACKS      | Will "lock" onto Olimar and then suck in a breath of  |
 |                  | air. The beetle will spit out a large boulder. If     |
 |                  | your Pikmin are in its path, they will be killed. Be  |
 |                  | warned, these rocks move fast, so get out of the way! |
 |                  | If you are really brave and you can time things well, |
 |                  | Olimar can punch the rolling rocks to destroy them.   |
 |------------------|-------------------------------------------------------|
 |    TO DEFEAT     | When the beetle sucks in air throw one or more Pikmin |
 |                  | at its mouth. These can be any colour but Red is most |
 |                  | If you got it right, the beetle will gag and then     |
 |                  | reveal a soft red undershell. Throw your Pikmin onto  |
 |                  | this undershell to cause maximum damage. Usually, one |
 |                  | attack won't be enough. Repeat this two or three      |

 |                  | slow them down if you wish. Repeat this until all its |

 |    TO DEFEAT     | There is only one of these in the game, and he has no |

 |                  | have little effect. This enemy's weakness is pellets. |
 |                  | Wait until he passes, then knock down a Pellet Posy.  |
 |                  | He will grab it and try and take it to his den. Throw |
 |                  | at least 2 Pikmin at the pellet. The Pikmin will be   |
 |                  | stronger, pulling the pellet and the Breadbug to the  |
 |                  | Onion. The Breadbug will be sucked onto the underside |
 |                  | of the Onion, causing it major damage. Finish it off  |

 |                  | If you have only a single Pikmin fighting with the    |
 |                  | Breadbug, he will drag it all the way back to his     |
 |                  | hole. If he enters the hole whilst your Pikmin is     |
 |                  | holding onto the pellet, the Pikmin will die.         |

 |                  | Run your Pikmin over to where it will come out. If it |

 |     ATTACKS      | The Puffstool will stop and spray a cloud of pink     |

 |                  | Pikmin.                                               |
 |------------------|-------------------------------------------------------|
 |   ENEMIES REEL   | This rare subspecies of Bulborb has a certain         |

 |     ATTACKS      | Chomp. Whilst it is on the attack, a glitch in the    |
 |                  | game renders the Bulbear invulnerable.                |
 |------------------|-------------------------------------------------------|
 |    TO DEFEAT     | Whilst it is sleeping, go behind and throw Pikmin     |
 |                  | onto its back. If you have a huge number of Pikmin    |
 |                  | (around 50 or more) then this should be enough to     |
 |                  | take it out. However, if you have a smaller group,    |
 |                  | the Bulbear will throw these Pikmin off. Call any     |
 |                  | Pikin near its mouth back. Stay behind it and throw   |
 |                  | more Pikmin on his back. A more effective, but more   |
 |                  | time consuming method is to use Yellow Pikmin to      |
 |                  | throw Bomb Rocks at it. 2 Bomb Rocks should do it.    |

 |     ATTACKS      | It has no damage-causing attacks but will swoop down  |

 |                  | planting them into the ground. This will turn your    |

Q) In the Distant Spring, there is an egg rolling around. What is it?

A) This is the Smokey Progg. This enemy can be found in the Distant Spring
   before Day 16. For further information on the Smokey Progg see the Enemies
   chapter.


Q) When I picked up the Libra, my Pikmin dropped it off the cliff and it 
   bounced off of the map! Can I get it back?

A) I'm afraid that you will have to start the day over.
