The Piklopedia is an in-game list of all the plants and enemies in Pikmin 2 that the player has come in contact with throughout their exploration. The player can access the Piklopedia's menu by pressing GCN L.png / Wiimote Dpad left.png when on the area selection menu. Creatures that have not been seen yet will not appear on the Piklopedia, but their grid slots will still show their Piklopedia number. This feature also keeps track of how many Pikmin have been lost to each enemy, how many of said enemy the player has defeat so far, and how many Pokos the enemy is worth. For fields that cannot be counted, four dashes appear instead.

Pikpik carrots can be thrown at enemies to see their reaction, although the throws cannot be aimed – not even with the New Play Control! remake's enhanced cursor – and are loosely based on the direction the camera is facing. Olimar's notes can be read by pressing GCN X.png / Wiimote Plus.png, and Louie's notes, if available, can be read by pressing GCN Y.png / Wiimote Minus.png. Ultra-bitter sprays can also be used on the non-plant creatures by pressing GCN Z.png / Wiimote 1.png; this does not affect the in-game spray count. The Piklopedia is the counterpart to the Treasure Hoard, which shares the same music.

Areas[edit]

When using the Piklopedia and the Treasure Hoard, the scenery will change depending on what area the ship is hovering on, on the area selection screen. Each object seen will spawn in a different, pre-specified location of the area. The Valley of Repose, the Awakening Wood and the Perplexing Pool have some notable differences compared to their in-game counterparts, while the Wistful Wild is barely any different. For a list of differences in the two versions of an area, please read the corresponding area article. The following maps illustrate a top-down view of the Piklopedia and Treasure Hoard versions of the areas, excluding the Wistful Wild, which has no visible difference.

Trivia[edit]

The dummy texture.
  • A dummy icon texture named zzdummy can be found within the Piklopedia's icon texture files. It's unused in the game, and it must have been used during development to represent enemies that had no icons at the time.
  • The icon textures for the Glowstem and Queen Candypop Bud have exact duplicates inside the game's files.
  • The icon for the Fiery Bulblax is 80 × 80 in size. This size is only used for boss icons, whereas normal enemies have icons that are 40 × 40. This indicates that in some early stage in development, the Fiery Bulblax was meant to be a boss, as are the other two "Bulblax" grub-dogs.
