Forum:Are black pikmin real?
I saw a picture of black pikmin in the community portal then clicked to be deleted was this picture forged or real? for give me if I'm stupid 
- Yes and no. That is a real image, but you can't get them naturally in the game. The guy who took it used an Action Replay hacking device to change the default colors of all his Pikmin to black. —Jimbo Jambo
Oh that helped alot i just want to use black but you have to hack it.-crazy9090
- Well, you're not missing too much. It's really just a change in their skin color, they don't gain any special powers. Although, if you want to try it anyway, you can always buy an Action Replay. You can probably find a fairly cheap one on Amazon or eBay. They also have one for $30 at Codejunkies.com. Aside from getting black Pikmin, you can probably find all sorts of neat codes online. —Jimbo Jambo
The Pikmin's Onion color also changes when these codes are activated, but nothing else happens. (As Jimbo Jambo stated). Me_just_in20:44, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Not necessarily. Mine cannot change that colour. Although, most do have more code options. How do you think I managed to squeeze 599 Pikmin out of a single day?--Prezintenden
- Then you're probably not using the right codes. 6V60-YTGK-VPUXK KRJ5-EW06-8445A supposedly turns Red Pikmin black. There are a bunch more here. I'd guess that most of them work with Pikmin 2 as well, but you'll have to see for yourself.
- Er, here are some codes for the PAL version. Keep in mind that you have to enable the (m) code before any of the others will work. —Jimbo Jambo
- Ah, heheh, no. I bought mine over Ebay, ergo, I have the Freeloader version (which means that codes are pre-set on a CD and cannot be changed or added). If you manage to find a other Gamecube version on the German Ebay, then I think I owe a substantial amount of cash.--Prezintenden
oh the codes look cool(not the codes but what the codes do) but i can't get an action replay without my parents permissoin....:l or else their just gonna yell and even if i do ask them Their gonna just say it's useless-crazy9090
