i always wondered why they made the onions at the end of the day form together to make a multi-colored onion in Pikmin 3, i also wondered why they made these "tenticle thingies replace the legs of the onion in Pikmin and Pikmin 2" leave a comment on my page if you agree.

Well, on a gameplay note, I guess that it would be for efficiency. This kind of thing was already seen in Pikmin 2, however; remember how you would get Purple and White Pikmin from the Ship? Also, Pikmin 3 seems to have redesigned graphics which are noticeably more cartoonish. The stilt-like legs of the original Onions went well with the first two games' more realistic style, but a rounder, more curved design works better and is softer on the eye inPikmin 3. Los Plagas
Since you've got five Pikmin types, you'd have five Onions in your landing site, which would be a lot. So Nintendo made it "simpler" by merging it into one big Onion... though this causes problems when you're trying to make Pikmin of one type. And about the tentacle-like legs, they kinda look like roots. I guess it's just a graphics redesign. ~PikFan23
