The Flatterchuck (ビックリトバシ?, lit.: "Surprising Launcher") is an enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. At first it looks like a stone platform with eyes, roughly four times wider than Captain Olimar and it appears to have moss growing on it. When stepped on it leaps straight upward, using insectoid legs.

Behavior[edit]

The Flatterchuck lies flat on the ground, with its eyes closed until Pikmin or Captain Olimar walk onto it. It will blink briefly and then launch its body upwards, sending anything standing on it up into the air. It will come back to its original state, and will repeat the process if something steps on it again. It takes roughly two seconds from the moment something steps on it to the moment it springs up.

Strategy[edit]

Flatterchucks act as platforms for the player to reach new areas. They do not act as traditional enemies and cannot be attacked or killed.

Notes

Hey! Pikmin logs

It sleeps flat, blending in with the ground, and will only move if something walks across its back. At this stimulus, it leaps high into the air. It's difficult to say who's to blame when this happens—the Flatterchuck itself or the one who stepped on it.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Flatterchuck is one of the only three creatures in the game that have plant life growing on it, in this case only moss. The other two are the bosses Emperor Bulblax and Quaggled Mireclops.
