Is there a Pikmin design in Animal Crossing?

No, there isn't, but you can make a design for one if you wish. In Animal Crossing: City Folk for Wii, you can buy Pikmin headgear at Sable and Able's.

How do you end the day in pikmin 2?

The day ends when the timer at the top of the screen reaches the very right side. You can also choose to go to the end of the day from the pause menu. Just be sure to gather up your Pikmin when the day starts to end.

What are the types of Pikmin?

User Avatar
As of Pikmin 2, there are only 5 types of Pikmin: red, blue, yellow, purple, and white. In the original Pikmin, only red, blue, and yellow Pikmin exist. In Pikmin 2, purple and white Pikmin were added to the fray (in addition to the previous three). Here are the Pikmin types: Red Pikmin: The second-strongest Pikmin. They are immune to fire and you start out with them. They are good fighting Pikmin, and you can create more quite easily. They are distinct because of their nose. You begin the game with this type of Pikmin. Blue Pikmin: The water-resistant Pikmin. They are really of no use other than if water is an obstacle. They can also serve as lifesuards and throw other kinds fo Pikmin out of the water. You find them in the Perplexing Pool behind an electric gate. They are distinct because of their mouth. Yellow Pikmin: The electric-resistant Pikmin. They fly high and far, and can reach far and high places easily. Use them for getting treasure in hard to reach places. In the original Pikmin, yellow Pikmin could handle bomb rocks. They are distinct because of their ears. White Pikmin: The poison-resistant Pikmin. They are the smallest and the fastest of the five Pikmin types, and can find buried treasure. They are highly poisonous, and will damage any creature that eats them. They are distinct because of their small stature and beady red eyes. Purple Pikmin: The burly Pikmin. They are so heavy that they stun enemies when they land on them, and count as ten Pikmin when carrying objects. Because of their mass, they are the slowest of Pikmin. The following are technically not Pikmin, but are very similar: Mushroom Pikmin: While they were never given an official name, these appear in the original Pikmin. An enemy called a Puffstool can release spores that turn Pikmin purplish and zombie-like. Mushroom Pikmin attack Olimar, and revert back to regular Pikmin after a certain amount of time. Bulbmin: These can only be found and used in caves in Pikmin 2. Bulbmin are Bulborbs whose minds were taken over by a parasitic species of Pikmin, and thus look like small Bulborbs with leaves sticking out of their heads. They are resistant to fire, water, electricity, and poison, making them very versatile. They cannot be taken with you outside the caves, however. Once you exit, they will stay inside the caves. These are currently the only types of Pikmin. Nintendo has not said that there will be new Pikmin types added to Pikmin 3, but most have agreed that new colors of Pikmin will be made. In the "happy ending" presented in the first Pikmin game, multiple colors of Onions are shown. The Pikmin creators have said they have known what the basic outline of Pikmin 3 will be like since Pikmin one, and thus, it makes sense that the other Onions will be those of new Pikmin in Pikmin 3. They are presumably the next Pikmin colors, but there has been no confirmation. A video with the multiple colored Onions is shown in the related links below.

How do you defeat the Goolix in Pikmin?

User Avatar
Since the Goolix is made mostly of water, blue Pikmin are best to fight it. Throw them on the smaller blue nucleus to damage it. You can also damage the Goolix by throwing Pikmin on the yellow nucleus, but this will make it throw all attacking Pikmin off.

How do you make fireworks in Pikmin?

User Avatar
You are supposed to lay down near the Pikmin, and the Pikmin will carry you to their Onion and you will be lifted up into it (you will not go into the onion) and you fall back down then on top of the onion you will see fireworks. This only works if you obtain the item that allows you to lay down. There are no harmful or meaningful effects of the fireworks.

What is a Pikmin?

User Avatar
A Pikmin is a little creature that comes in different colors. Each color of Pikmin has different abilities: Red Pikmin are immune to fire and have higher attack power than the other Pikmin, excluding purple Pikmin. The distinct characteristic in red Pikmin is their nose. Red Pikmin are the first Pikmin that you find in the game. Yellow Pikmin are light and can be thrown higher than other Pikmin. They are also immune to electricity in Pikmin 2, and can carry bombs in Pikmin. The distinct characteristic in yellow Pikmin is their ears. Blue Pikmin can breath underwater. They can also rescue nearby drowning Pikmin. The distinct characteristic in blue pikmin is their mouth. Purple Pikmin are ten times heavier and stronger than other Pikmin, so they count as ten Pikmin when lifting or deflating an object. They can also stun large enemies they are thrown onto, or even instantly kill smaller ones. White Pikmin are smaller and quicker than other Pikmin, and can see buried treasure with their huge, red, beady eyes. White Pikmin are also immune to poison, and will poison any creature that eats them. Captain Olimar crashes onto the "Distant Planet" and stumbles upon these creatures, and the Pikmin are willing to obey his commands.Pikmin can reproduce by converting food and fallen foes into more Pikmin. They are preyed upon by night creatures, however, and must be returned safely before night comes. Red, blue, and yellow Pikmin sleep in a flying device called an "Onion" (It looks like an onion with 3 legs) that they can be protected in. Purple and White Pikmin sleep in the ship, and are only created when other colors of Pikmin are thrown into underground Candypop flowers of their color. It is explained that Olimar, while cruising through space, is eating his favorite soup with red, blue, and yellow onions and "pikpik carrots." There is no way of knowing if this is related to the Pikmin; however, Olimar names them after his beloved carrots.

Are Pikmin in Super Smash Bros.. Brawl?

User Avatar
Yes. Captain Olimar is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and he uses all five of the Pikmin that had been created at that time in his attacks. Red Pikmin cause fire damage, Yellow Pikmin cause electrical damage, Blue Pikmin cause regular damage, Purple Pikmin cause considerable damage, and White Pikmin cause poison damage.

What happens if you lose all your Pikmin of one color in Pikmin?

User Avatar
More purple and white Pikmin can always be gotten by throwing Pikmin into Ivory and Violet Candypop Buds, respectively. For the colors of Pikmin that have Onions, a single seed of that color will pop out at the beginning of the next day after what is called a "Pikmin Extinction".

Where do you get blue Pikmin in Pikmin?

User Avatar
Go in the third area called The Forest Navel. The blue pikmin are in the water. Right next to where your ship and the Pikmin Ships land, there's a white wall. Go to that, then turn left. Go down the long path and turn around the corner into the water. The blue pikmin should be there. Those are not the only blue pikmin you can get in the game. You can easily reproduce more by feeding the onion (the blue ship that the blue pikmin stay in) with pellets. You can find their onion, which will allow you to breed blue pikmin, in the Forest Navel.
Asked in Nintendo DS, Pikmin

Will there be a Pikmin game for the Nintendo DS?

User Avatar
There will not be a Pikmin released for the DS. Pikmin and Pikmin 2 were originally released by Nintendo exclusively for their GameCube console, however both games have been upgraded with the 'New Play Control!' to enable them to be played on the Nintendo Wii. Nintendo has confirmed they are working on Pikmin 3 for the Wii which is coming out somewhere near the end of 2009 or beginning of 2010. There will definitely not be a Pikmin game for the Nintendo DS. There is only one planned release of Pikmin, and that is Pikmin 3 coming out for the Wii. No other announcements have been made, but many have stated that there will be no Pikmin DS. More details on the 'New Play Control!' and its release dates are shown on the related link.

Which is better Pikmin or Pikmin 2?

User Avatar
Well, that is a matter of opinion. I personally like Pikmin 2 better because the game is really fun, creative puzzles, great (sometimes scary) caves, and 5 types of pikmin. Also, there is a longer story mode, no 30 day time limit, sprays, and an awesome 2 - player battle mode. The two captain system makes the game a lot more manageable. On the other hand, what makes Pikmin 2 better also makes Pikmin a lot more of a challenge. In pikmin 2 no time passes while you are under ground. This doesn't happen in Pikmin, even in boss fights. The enemies are tougher and the game isn't as easy. Only one captain makes vital multi-tasking more of a challenge. So, I like Pikmin 2 better but Pikmin is also a great game and I recommend checking out both.

Basically, you can't waste time. You have to have many Pikmin at all times while defeating monsters and obtaining parts. If you lose Pikmin, you will have to get more and thus, you lose time. Time is of the essence, so work fast and diligently!

How do you do the Beady Long Legs glitch in Pikmin?

User Avatar
Leave Pikmin at the entrance to the area where you fight the Beady Long Legs, and it may leave the area to try to follow them. If it falls down a pit or isn't killed outside the arena after a certain amount of time, the game will crash. The best way to try this glitch is to test it on the Beady Long Legs in The Final Trial in Challenge Mode.
