A few Pikmin 2 enemy pages, like Red Bulborb, show that it takes a certain number of "Hit Points" to defeat an enemy. I have a few questions about this, and I figured that the forum would be the best place to ask them, so:

  • Who discovered/created the HP measurements?
  • How did they do it?
  • Is the addition of HP to all enemy pages a work in progress?
  • Is there anything I can do to help find the HP of the enemies and bosses?
  • Also, is there a different system used for measuring HP in the first Pikmin game?

Sorry if I've been away for a while and missed these details, but this is the first time I've heard of real HP numbers in Pikmin. Portal-Kombat

Look here. The HP numbers were taken straight from the game data on the disc. It was easy to do, since a lot of info is in text files; however, this isn't the case in Pikmin 1, so I don't know of any way we could get the HP counts for the first game. As for HP not being on every page, I guess no one ever got around to finishing it.
(Also I'm aware that you could test Pikmin 1 HP manually in-game, but I'm against that, given how inaccurate people's initial attempts in Pikmin 2 were.) Miles. 07:06, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Interesting. Okay, I understand now. I might ask questions about how to access this data in-game later. Portal-Kombat
