Some Pikmin cards have been released.

e-Reader cards[edit]

Nintendo released a series of e-reader cards (called e+ cards in Japan), which feature Pikmin characters and enemies. The cards can be used to unlock levels of mini-games within Japanese copies of Pikmin 2 by connecting one's Game Boy Advance and e-Reader to their GameCube. A binder for holding the e+ cards was also released.

The main set contains 60 cards spread across 12 packs with 5 cards in each pack. There are 20 red cards, 20 blue cards, and 20 yellow cards. There were also a few promo cards which were released. Three of the Promo cards, including Olimar, Louie, and the President, were given out with every copy of Pikmin 2 in Japan. Two cards were given out in weekly issues of Japanese gaming magazine Famistu, and another was given out in the official Pikmin 2 strategy guide. Six cards were given out via Club Nintendo, and are the rarest cards in the set. The complete set of cards totals to 72 cards. A card binder was released with the Famitsu Cube + Advance magazine July 2004 issue as an appendix, which can hold the complete set of cards.
