Golden Candypop Buds (キイロポンガシグサ?, lit.: "Yellow Puffed Grain Weed") are yellow Candypop Buds in Pikmin 2. They behave the same as all other Candypop Buds, except when non-Yellow Pikmin are thrown in, they will change into Yellow Pikmin. If Yellow Pikmin are thrown in, they will be reverted to the leaf maturity. Only one is found in the whole game, in the Glutton's Kitchen on sublevel 3.



Olimar's notes

No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits out the same number of yellow Pikmin seeds. Current research has yet to produce any theories as to precisely what kind of interaction causes the Pikmin to change color to match the color of this flower's petals.

Louie's notes

This tart flower's acidic juices can burn a hole through a frying pan. Eating it would be unwise.

Pikmin 2 Nintendo Player's Guide[edit]

The rare Golden Candypop Bud transforms any Pikmin type into yellow Pikmin sprouts.
