The Puckering Blinnow is an aquatic enemy debuting in Pikmin 3. They are small, colorful fish enemies that inhabit bodies of water. They will occasionally try to eat Pikmin, and in Pikmin 3 they may even leap out of the water. In Hey Pikmin, they attack Pikmin by waiting a moment and simply charging in a straight line. In some areas they can end up on land, making them harmless until they get back in water.
The name 'Elips' comes from the lips of the Puckering Blinnow, which are used to grab and eat Pikmin. The family is known in Japanese as バナナウオ科? (lit.: "Banana fish family"), due to the yellow coloration of its members outside of breeding season.
