The strategies shown are just suggestions.

The Breeding Ground is the twenty-sixth level in Pikmin 2's Challenge Mode. While the amount of Pikmin is small at first, there are many Queen Candypop Buds available to increase the player's numbers, hence the name.

Sublevel 1[edit]

Snatch your 4 Red Pikmin and throw them in the Candypop Buds (Red Pikmin preferred, as they are stronger). Watch out for Creeping Chrysanthemums. The Key should be lying around somewhere.

Detailed object list
The game spawns these "main" objects:
ID Object Amount Fall method Spawn location
1 Creeping Chrysanthemum icon.png Creeping Chrysanthemum 2 None "Hard" enemy spots
- Mirrored Element icon.png Mirrored Element Carried inside entry with ID 1
2 Queen Candypop Bud icon.png Queen Candypop Bud 2 None "Special" enemy spots
5 Clover icon.png Clover 8 None "Hard" enemy spots
6 Figwort icon.png Figwort (small red) 8 None "Hard" enemy spots
Then it spawns these "decoration" objects:
ID Object Amount Fall method Spawn location
3 Dandelion icon.png Dandelion 20[Sublevel 1 note 1] None Plant spots
4 Margaret icon.png Margaret 60[Sublevel 1 note 2] None Plant spots
Then it spawns these "treasure" objects:
ID Object Amount Fall method Spawn location
7 The Key icon.png The Key 1 None Treasure spots
Then it spawns these "dead end" objects:
ID Object Amount Fall method Spawn location
8 Queen Candypop Bud icon.png Queen Candypop Bud 3 None Dead ends
  1. ^ a b The sublevel's data makes it so 20 Dandelions should spawn in total, but no sublevel layout can ever accommodate that many. All layouts end up generating exactly 16.
  2. ^ The sublevel's data makes it so 60 Margarets should spawn in total, but the Dandelions already fill all possible "decorative" object spawn points, so no Margaret can ever be spawned.
For details on how objects are spawned, and how some may fail to spawn, see here.

Sublevel 2[edit]

Lots of Buds here. Make a mix of Blue, Red & Yellow Pikmin and use an ultra-spicy spray if you want. If you want to collect everything, time will get tight. The Key should be behind one of the many gates, as will the hole.

Sublevel 3[edit]

We meet the Shower Room style and you will need all Pikmin types. A Fiery Blowhog should have The Key. There will be lots of Danger Chimes here. Take The Key and exit.
