What's a space traveler to do without his trusty spaceship? Don't panic, but you're going to have to seek out all of the parts of your once solid craft in this epic search. A collision with a meteor has left your ship in pieces strewn about a foreign planet. Now, your spacesuit is the only protection against a deadly atmosphere and lots of enemies. In addition, you'll be challenged to protect the tiny Pikmin, a local life form that develops into leaves, buds, and flowers.

Our newest cheats for Pikmin were added April 7, 2008.
To make Captain Olimar invincible, simply press down on the D-pad. Olimar will lay down, then nothing can hurt him.
If something goes terribly wrong then press start and hit continue from last save.
Blue Pikmin can live in water, but why do they have only 1 thing when red and yellow have 2 features? Fact is blue Pikmin does have another ability. They can save other drowning Pikmin! It isn't always succesful. If the Blue Pikmin are idle when a yellow or red Pikmin falls in the water near them they will attempt to throw them on shore. This is called the lifeguard. It works well in the distant spring for the part right near the base where you need to throw yellow Pikmin to get a part and they sometimes fall in water.
If you collect all 30 parts at the end of the game when you lift off to go back to your home planet you will see many differnet colors of onions lifting off
to get purple pikmin first get 100 red 75 blue and 45 yellow get out 50 red,25 blue, and 25 yellow.you need the yellow pikmin to have bomb rocks.get all the pikmin by water then throw only the yellow pikmin in then go to base click on go to sunset. then by the next morning you have purple pikmin!
when you see a bulborb don't just attack it from the front.get all of your pikmin then sneak behind it and use the c stick.when they start to attack it will only be around 2 seconds before it dies if you did it right!
If you get a happy ending, as you're leaving the planet you'll see Onions of all colors following you.
On the first day there is no time limit so if you have some spare time you can wait for your Pikmin to turn into flowers. (This doesn't work for your first Pikmin.)
When your in Forest Navel, go to puffstool for a battle. When your pikmin are fighting puffstool, they'll hit some gas out of puffstool. If your pikmin get hit by it, they'll turn purple, their pupils in their eye will go away, and get mushrooms on there heads instead of a leaf, bulb, or flower. They will still attack puffstool, but will also attack you, so be careful. They'll jump on you and start bashing their head into you, so it's not easy to escape. They won't stay purple forever, they'll turn back in a few seconds.
The way to know your pikmin is by knowing that...
Blue Pikmin- can walk on water but can't stand fire. Yellow Pikmin- can be thrown farthest, can pick up and drop bomb rocks and dies in water. Red Pikmin- can stand fire but dies in water. Pikmin with flower tops- fastest Pikmin with bud tops- medeim speed Pikmin with leaf tops- slowestNote: If you have a yellow pikmin with a bomb rock and one of is not with you, don't tell them to come to you with the wistle (the "B" move) or else they will come to you but drop the bomb.
Unless you through them out too far, just keep pressing and holding 'B' until they come out of the water and dry off.
Once you have saved your progress once, a new option will be available from the main menu: Challenge Mode. This mode lets you go back and compete in the areas that you have already opend up in the main game. The idea is not to find spaceship pieces, but rather to build as big a Pikmin army as you can before the sun sets. The biggest army scores are saved and entered into a ranking.
In the ''Crash-site'' area, go over the bridge you made from pushing the box over blow-up the wall blocking your path with yellow pikmin using bomb-rocks (they can be found inside the cardboard box). Once in this area, you'll see three very large clams (Clamclamps). The one on the left has a part of your rocket, the one in the middle has a pearl, and the one on the right also has a pearl. If you can defeat the clam and take it's pearl back to an Onion, you'll recieve a whopping 50 pikmin! This will work for any color pikmin.
Each Pikmin as you know are different from each other. The leaf on a Pikmin's head means that it is the weakest and slowest. A bud means that it is fast and kinda strong. A flower means that it is the fastest and strongest.
If you like colors then on the D-pad push down. Your Pikmin will carry you to the Onion.
To defeat Burrowing Snagrets you must stay away from its' head. Try not to attack it if its' head is above ground, because you will surely lose pikmin. Wait until the Burrowing Snagret is underground again. Now huddle your pikmin near the spot at which it had appeared. If the Burrowing Snagret comes up again, you will have a lot of pikmin on its' head where it is unable to eat them. When it burrows underground repeat this step again. Keep doing this until it is defeated. Normally, when I fight Burrowing Snagrets, I lose around only 5 or 6 pikmin, but that is only because I followed this pattern.
To defeat the Emperor Bulbax in the Final Trial try bringing 20 yellow pikmin and 80 red pikmin to the battle. Arm you yellows with bombs on the eastern ledge of his lair. Now go touch him. He will pop up and this is your cue to run to the entrance with all of your pikmin. Dismiss them with X and touch one yellow carrying a bomb rock. Head near the Bulbax's head. If you see it's mouth dripping with moisture dismiss the yellow bomber. The Bulbax will lick him up with the bomb, so gather around 40 of your reds and start throwing them at the stunned Bulbax's face. When the Bulbax pops back up run to the entrance at the suth side of his lair again. Repeat this process again and again until he is defeated. Watch out!! If he jumps run with your pikmin bomber and remember to dismiss him only if you see his mouth dripping with moisture. After the Bulbax is defeated, it will take 40 pikmin to carry the secret safe back to Olimar's ship. It took me only one try to defeat Bulbax, but that is only because I followed this strategy. Also my end results were that I sprouted 4044 pikmin and lost 267 in battle and by getting all of the parts I recieved the "Happy End".
Use about like 30 pikmin when he turns to you rapidly toss pikmin toward the upper snout clogging it with a pikmin before he fires a boulder at you. He will open his protective shell revealing a weak spot on the back of him throw as many pikmin as you can. If you dont finish him repeat. You need 30 pikmin to carry him and he will produce a whoppin 50 SEEDS!
Impact Site - 194 pikmin The Forest of Hope - 333 pikmin The Forest Navel - 243 pikmin The Distant Spring - 258 pikmin The Final Trial - 212 pikmin
If u like a a good ol' July 4th fireworks parade, have at least 4 Pikmin out with you and press down on the D-pad. The pikmin will carry you to an Onion and you will go up, and fireworks will come out.
Nova Blaster, Space Float, Massage Machine, UV Lamp and Secret Safe. You dont need these parts to complete the game.
Save the game at any point to unlock a "Challenge Mode" option at the main menu. Select that option to replay previously completed sections in a time attack type scenario. The objective is to collect as many Pikmin as possible before nightfall.
