What sort of online capability would you most like to see in a Pikmin game?[edit]

  • Multiplayer in Story Mode
  • Multiplayer in cooperative side modes
  • Multiplayer in competitive side modes
  • Custom stage sharing

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) people definitely want online things, but WHICH online things? I don't have any idea for options yet, but maybe this poll will be interesting. — {EspyoT} 04:15, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
  2. I may be a anonymous user but this is a great idea. I think one idea would be online Multiplayer and also online Story. (Maybe in Pikmin 4, You auto start with 2 captains Pikifan4 (talk) 14:32, 27 January 2016 (EST)
  3. I'm interested what people will say about this. Untitled-1 (talk) 16:17, 28 April 2017 (EDT)
  4. While the release of Pikmin 3 Deluxe has recontextualized this question a bit, I do think it's a good idea to ask about online features. — Soprano(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)

  • Online Multi Player, Online Bingo Battle/Two Player Battle, Online story (i mentioned this above) and finally, online stage share, (make satges using sand box then, share online) Pikifan4 (talk) 14:34, 27 January 2016 (EST)
  • Hm, I'm not too sure about these options. Three of them are pretty much the same option. I like the idea of choosing between something like multiplayer and content sharing, but the more I think about it, the more I don't think this will work well. Everyone will want to be able to play real-time multiplayer. Something like custom stage sharing implies custom stage creation, which is an entire can of worms in and of itself. — {EspyoT} 11:51, August 9, 2021 (EDT)
    • Hmm, I see your point. This poll sounds cool but is very difficult to come up with options with. Perhaps it'll have to wait until someone has better ideas for options. — Soprano(talk) 00:00, October 3, 2021 (EDT)

What Pikmin 1/2 area would you most like to see remastered using Pikmin 3's engine?[edit]

  • The Impact Site
  • The Forest Of Hope
  • The Forest Navel
  • The Distant Spring
  • The Final Trial
  • Valley of Repose
  • Awakening Wood
  • Perplexing Pool
  • Wistful Wild

Oppose[edit]

  1. I like this, but it has too many options to be a good poll, and The Forest Navel was already remade as Forgotten Cove. Plus, it feels like an unrealistic expectation for such a thing to happen. — Soprano(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)
  2. Yep too many options, it's a good poll idea though! Should be split into two separate polls. --PastelP (talk) 15:03, November 25, 2022 (EST)

Comments[edit]

  • Perhaps this question could be reworked, so instead of being "What Pikmin 1/2 area would you most like to see remastered using Pikmin 3's engine?", it could be "What area would you most like to see brought back and updated in a future Pikmin game?". That way it wouldn't be so unrealistic, and could also cover Pikmin 3 areas. Though, the resulting poll would have a lot of options. Perhaps some of the areas in Pikmin and their Pikmin 2 counterparts could be combined in the poll options. — Soprano(talk) 01:36, August 26, 2021 (EDT)
    • That does sound better, though like you said, it'd have too many options. Maybe I'd forgo the P3 options entirely, since those still look great by modern standards, but then we'd end up right back on the original poll... — {EspyoT} 13:06, August 26, 2021 (EDT)
  • It's worth noting that modders have recently managed to remaster Pikmin and Pikmin 2 areas in Pikmin 3's engine. Without a rewrite, this poll isn't worth asking at all anymore. — Soprano(talk) 00:00, October 3, 2021 (EDT)

What is your favorite Bulborb type?[edit]

  • Red Bulborb
  • Hairy Bulborb
  • Orange Bulborb
  • Whiptongue Bulborb
  • Spotty Bulbear
  • Emperor Bulblax
  • Empress Bulblax
  • Fiery Bulblax

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Since we did Pikmin types, why not do Bulborbs? We dont have any polls around enemies (that I know of), so this can be cool and unique. The Bulborb is also as recognizable as the Pikmin themselves, and are part of the biggest family in the series (grub-dog). This also includes Bulblaxes and Bulbears, but we can get rid of them if there are too many options. I also think Bulborb Larvae are too similar to Dwarf Bulborbs (same with Dwarf Bulbears) even though they're technically grub-dogs. — CrazyCow October 1, 2019
  2. --PastelP (talk) 15:03, November 25, 2022 (EST)
  3. Supporting, if it's about which one people would rather have as a pet (see my comment). — {EspyoT} 16:17, January 2, 2023 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • I wonder if we could tweak the question a bit to be what the user thinks is the cutest, or which they would rather have as a pet. — {EspyoT} 18:07, October 2, 2019 (EDT)
    • Yeah, I like the pet idea. — CrazyCow October 13, 2019
    • I also like it; a "Which Bulborb type would you rather have as a pet?" question is a fun and quirky question that would get people to think. — Soprano(talk) 22:55, December 13, 2021 (EST)
  • Not much opportunity for discussion on this one other than "it look cute :)". Maybe if it was something like "which bulborb is the hardest to combat", and the list was shortened to only the more difficult ones. — Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)
  • Maybe we could ask the question of which one is hardest/most annoying to fight, since I think players would have something to say about that. Midnight blue (talk) 18:45, August 28, 2021 (EDT)
    • That might not be very interesting, since the bosses would obviously win. — {EspyoT} 12:04, September 5, 2021 (EDT)

What would the optimal number of areas in a Pikmin game be?[edit]

  • 1 big area
  • 2 to 3
  • 4 to 5
  • 6 to 8
  • More than 8

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Another fanon-style poll, asking about the number of areas in the ideal Pikmin game. It could also be phrased as "If you were designing a Pikmin game, how many areas would it have?" It may leave out a lot of nuance (such as area size), and it may have a lot of options (edit: I reduced the number of options), but it could still be a good poll. — Soprano(talk) 04:28, June 21, 2021 (EDT)
  2. It's better now with the condensed options. Sure, why not? — {EspyoT} 11:37, June 27, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Hm, seems like a fine poll to use when there aren't better ones to pick from. I won't add my support directly, but I'm certainly not opposed. — {EspyoT} 15:33, June 22, 2021 (EDT)

So far, all of the main series Pikmin games have been re-released on a later console. How do you feel about this?[edit]

  • I think the re-releases are great and that Pikmin games should be re-released on more consoles.
  • I think the re-releases that already exist are good and there doesn't need to be more of them.
  • I like the re-releases, but Nintendo should be prioritizing new games, even if it means there are fewer total Pikmin games.
  • I don't like the re-releases; the original games are good enough.

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) I noticed that the Super Mario Wiki has polls that are much more specific than ours with much more detailed possible answers. It's hard for us to have very specific polls since we have far less content, but we can still try some polls with more complex answers like this, for more variation in the styles of poll. The re-releases of the Pikmin series is a good option for this. — Soprano(talk) 18:32, August 21, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • I'm not sure of the answers that I've put in there so far; they need refinement before it can be a good poll. — Soprano(talk) 18:32, August 21, 2021 (EDT)
  • Eh, it's a weird poll. I'm not really feeling it, but I'm not sure I can put my finger on why. Either way, the title can probably be changed to just "how do you feel about the re-releases?" or something. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Espyo • (talk) • (contribs)
  • Is this question still possible to ask now that Pikmin 4 has been announced? — Soprano(talk) 01:28, September 16, 2022 (EDT)

There are a few groups of enemies which are all variants of each other, such as Bulborbs, Spectralids, and Dweevils. What are your thoughts on there being multiple variants of enemies?[edit]

  • I think there should be more variants of enemies.
  • I think the existing games have a good amount of enemy variants.
  • I think there should be less variants of enemies.
  • I think enemy variants should be implemented differently.

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Another more complex poll idea about something people might have an opinion on. — Soprano(talk) 00:52, August 26, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Might be okay for a more "bottom of the barrel" poll. Maybe the first sentence of the question can be removed, though. Or maybe like "What do you think about enemy variants? (e.g. all the Dweevil recolors)" — {EspyoT} 13:06, August 26, 2021 (EDT)

Do you think Purple Pikmin and White Pikmin should return in a future game's Story Mode?[edit]

  • Yes, same as they were in Pikmin 2
  • Yes, but with a notable redesign
  • No

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Similar to the cave poll from a few years ago, this poll asks the popular topic of whether Purple Pikmin and White Pikmin should return. The fact that there are 2 "yes" options and 1 "no" option could be seen as encouraging vote-splitting though. — Soprano(talk) 17:36, October 8, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Hm, I'm not sure... I think every fan alive would like to see them be back in Story Mode; I have not once the opposite opinion. And an option for not having an opinion already exists in a way – it's not voting in the first place :P — {EspyoT} 15:51, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
    • In the Pikcord, I've seen a few people against the idea of Purple and White Pikmin returning. (I'd probably vote for that option, or the redesign option.) And the "no opinion" option was taken from the cave poll from a few years ago; I wouldn't have included it otherwise. — Soprano(talk) 17:48, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
      • Hm, the other poll's option was more about people wanting to voice their opinion, but being pleased with either outcome, as opposed to just not having an opinion. But yeah, in retrospect I don't think the cave poll's option made sense either. — {EspyoT} 13:19, October 11, 2021 (EDT)

What is your opinion on Pikmin's difficulty?[edit]

  • It's too easy
  • It's easy
  • It's fine
  • It's hard
  • It's too hard

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It feels like a question that should be asked at some point. Burrhead2 (talk) 14:11, April 30, 2022 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Depending on how this poll is received, polls for the other games could be submitted as well. (With any changes, of course) Burrhead2 (talk) 14:11, April 30, 2022 (EDT)
  • Is this referring to the first game, or to the whole series? If the former, then there's a similar idea above. Maybe they could both be merged? — {EspyoT} 11:07, May 21, 2022 (EDT)
    • First game. That's the issue with having a series and game with the same name. I'm not too sure about the merge, though. The questions are somewhat similar, but I feel they're still somewhat different. Burrhead2 (talk) 19:33, June 18, 2022 (EDT)

Which is the most annoying enemy in Pikmin 3?[edit]

  • Arachnode
  • Dessicated Skitter Leaf
  • Flighty Joustmite
  • Puckering Blinnow
  • Skeeterskate
  • Swarming Sheargrub
  • Other

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) This is more of a fun and silly poll. There are a bunch of enemies in the Pikmin series that are often considered annoying by players, and it could be interesting to have a poll on which one people find the most annoying. The options I picked are enemies commonly noted as particularly annoying. Similar polls could work for other games, though I limited this one to Pikmin 3 to avoid cross-game comparisons. — Soprano(talk) 05:39, June 18, 2022 (EDT)

What are you most excited about for Pikmin 4?[edit]

  • The fact that it even exists
  • The potential for a new control scheme
  • ...

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) We had a poll like this when Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS was first announced, so it's worth having another one now that Pikmin 4 has been announced. However, with only a short trailer so far, it's hard to come up with options for it... — Soprano(talk) 01:28, September 16, 2022 (EDT)
  2. Great idea for a poll, but perhaps it's best to wait until we know more of the game. Perhaps by the time the next trailer / infodump comes. —Veldhuis94 (talk) 03:38, September 16, 2022 (EDT)
  3. Good poll. Other options could be "the story", "potential game modes", "new areas", "new enemies", and so on. ~ Contributions Cheepy (talk) 

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • I also like the poll, but we'll need some more specifics to ask what the most anticipated part is for the game. --PastelP (talk) 15:03, November 25, 2022 (EST)
  • I'd remove the option about the fact that it even exists, because it's a bit of a cop-out feel-good hype answer. Doesn't really give any interesting insight. I'd also rephrase it as to not make it sound like we know of the upcoming changes. — {EspyoT} 16:17, January 2, 2023 (EST)

Which is your favorite hazard?[edit]

  • Fire
  • Water
  • Electricity
  • Poison

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) A simple poll to see which of the four basic hazards people like the most. The additional hazards of crushing, stabbing, and explosions could potentially be added to the list of options, though I think it would be better with just 4. — Soprano(talk) 16:46, November 24, 2022 (EST)
  2. As per the reply to my opposition, if this poll is about hazards from a game design perspective, I think this could be quite interesting. But it might need to be renamed to specify this. I also am absolutely not opposed to having more options. I guess I've been nudged over the fence and a bit into "support" territory. -Burrhead2 (talk) 11:24, November 30, 2022 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

  1. Does one have a favorite hazard? If so it would be the least annoying one, cause the least favorite hazard would go right to the insta-kill one (Electricity). --PastelP (talk) 15:03, November 25, 2022 (EST)
  2. This one feels kind of... iffy. I'm not sure how one could really have a favorite hazard - I mean, they're all bad, right? People would just gravitate towards whatever does the least damage and/or is the easiest to avoid. Fire, water, and poison are also more-or-less the same thing. Unless this poll is about people's favorite ways to kill Pikmin. And that's simultaneously fantastic, and something that would probably never happen. I'm open to changing my mind, but for right now I'll stick (rather lightly) to this corner. -Burrhead2 (talk) 20:04, November 29, 2022 (EST)
    • I was originally going to word this as "Which is the best hazard", to make it clear that the question is about game design, but poll ideas in the past that have featured "the best" have often had that replaced with "your favorite" because it makes it clearer that the poll is subjective. But considering these reactions, I think that using "the best" would result in a more useful poll. Do you think it would be better if it was reworded in that way? — Soprano(talk) 21:59, November 29, 2022 (EST)

Comments[edit]

  • This is a good poll, but I feel like if explosions were added to it, that it would get the most votes. ~ Contributions Cheepy (talk) 

What is your favorite boss in Pikmin 2?[edit]

  • Empress Bulblax
  • Burrowing Snagret
  • Beady Long Legs
  • Emperor Bulblax
  • Giant Breadbug
  • Pileated Snagret
  • Man-at-Legs
  • Ranging Bloyster
  • Waterwraith
  • Segmented Crawbster
  • Raging Long Legs
  • Titan Dweevil

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) We've had boss polls in the past for Pikmin 3 and Hey! Pikmin, so we may as well have one for Pikmin 2, which also has clearly-defined bosses. However, with 12 options, this would be our largest poll yet, and would take up a lot of space on the Main Page. — Soprano(talk) 19:11, November 24, 2022 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • I like the idea, but I think there's too many choices for one poll. Would it be alright to split the poll up? --PastelP (talk) 15:03, November 25, 2022 (EST)
    • I think the number of choices is fine. But if it had to be split, it could be only bosses that were introduced in Pikmin 2, or only bosses that appear in Pikmin 1 and 2. ~ Contributions Cheepy (talk) 
      • Perhaps, but those are pretty arbitrary ways to split it... I don't think there's any way that a split could be done in a non-arbitrary way. — Soprano(talk) 15:31, November 25, 2022 (EST)
        • The poll could be split up into bosses per area (but the Empress Bulblax kinda messes that up a bit), and there could be some sort of mystical fifth poll with the winners of the other four, to find out which is the best... or maybe not. I don't know.
          But I'm calling it right now, if this poll makes it, the winner's gonna be the Waterwraith. -Burrhead2 (talk) 19:51, November 29, 2022 (EST)
          • A tournament-style poll series could be quite an interesting idea. To avoid having it take nearly a year, each poll could be 2 weeks long, with 3 or 4 initial rounds and one final round. But the grouping of bosses into initial rounds would be quite arbitrary and it would affect the outcome significantly. I'm not sure if there's a good way to do this. — Soprano(talk) 21:59, November 29, 2022 (EST)

What game did you start the series with?[edit]

  • Pikmin (GameCube)
  • New Play Control! Pikmin (Wii)
  • Pikmin 2 (GameCube)
  • New Play Control! Pikmin 2 (Wii)
  • Pikmin 3 (Wii U)
  • Pikmin 3 Deluxe (Switch)
  • Hey! Pikmin
  • Pikmin Bloom

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) This exact question has been asked before, in late 2018. However, I think it's worth asking it again, as Pikmin 3 Deluxe and Pikmin Bloom have been more popular than previous games and so may change the poll results significantly. Ideally this question would be asked before the release of Pikmin 4, though we could also ask it a few months after that game's release. — Soprano(talk) 22:37, December 2, 2022 (EST)

When do you consider Pikmin 2 beaten, rather than completed?[edit]

  • When I repay the debt/see the credits
  • When I beat the final boss
  • When I collect all the treasures

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) I've wondered what other people's opinions on this question are, so a Pikipedia poll is a great place to ask. Considering that the game's credits play not far into it, probably means that by the strictest definition, the Wistful Wild is post-game content, and some people may see it that way.

Comments[edit]

  • Would this be too much of a spoiler for the Main Page? — Soprano(talk) 01:27, December 22, 2022 (EST)
    • The most this spoils is the location of the credits. If you know anything about Pikmin 2, you'll know that there's a debt, and if you play long enough, you'll find that you won't be able to do everything before repaying the debt. And most games have a final boss. Burrhead2 (talk) 09:13, December 22, 2022 (EST)
  • This poll might be able to be renamed to something like "when are you satisfied by completing Pikmin 2?" or something. — {EspyoT} 16:17, January 2, 2023 (EST)

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) This would be quite a meta poll, using a set of questions on an external website to inform a question on this website. An article about the Pikmin Bloom Flower Personality Quiz was recently created, and it would be interesting to see the results people get. However, it would considerably increase the effort required to participate in the poll, and I'm not sure how we'd link to the quiz website in Template:Poll. — Soprano(talk) 02:15, January 13, 2023 (EST)
