Blue Pikmin

Blue Pikmin can thrive both on land and in the water. You can fling them into action whenever you need assistance in aquatic areas, like transporting treasure or fighting a creature. 


Yellow Pikmin

Electricity-loving Pikmin that are shockingly great at smashing electrified gates or directing currents. They get great air when thrown and are also champion diggers.


Rock Pikmin
