The pellet weed family is a family of plants in all three Pikmin games. It contains one known member, the Pellet Posy.


Pellet Posy[edit]

Three Pellet Posies, one of each color.
Main article: Pellet Posy.

Pellet Posies are important plants in the Pikmin games. They hold a pellet, which can be retrieved after Pikmin attack the plant. The pellet they hold can be of any color of the currently discovered Pikmin types, or it can cycle through the available ones in short intervals. Pellet Posies bearing 1-pellets, 5-pellets, 10-pellets, and 20-pellets exist. After one is destroyed, a stub will grow the next day, and after some in-game hours, it will grow to become a new Pellet Posy.


The name of the family might originate from the Japanese name of the Pellet Posy, ペレット草?, which translates to "Pellet Grass".
