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

  • ...?

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. — Botanist(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)

Which scrapped feature from Pikmin 3 would you most like to see in Pikmin 4?[edit]

  • False Candipop Bud
  • Bubble Blowhog
  • Kakureimo (The slug-like enemy)
  • Poison Geyser

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Personally I think it'd be interesting to see what people like the most out of the unused features CraftedPbody (talk) 11:18, 28 January 2017 (EST)
  2. TheSneakySpy (talk) 12:06, 28 January 2017 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

  1. Not many fans will know about the unused features. Of course, this can help bring attention to them, but the fans's feelings will still be limited regardless. Then, there's the fact that we still don't know much about the unused content and mechanics. There's still a lot left to discover right now, and even the contents in this list aren't entirely known. The "false" Candypop Bud might just be how the Candypop Bud works internally, if it is not set up properly, as opposed to being a new object that was meant to kill your Pikmin. The Bubble Blowhog could just be a new version of the plain old Watery Blowhog. The poison geyser is already an old thing, so I can't see how that one would be exciting whatsoever. I'm just not feeling this poll at all. Maybe one day in the distant future, when unused P3 content is much better understood, and more popular. — {EspyoT} 07:38, 30 January 2017 (EST)
  2. Seconding Espyo on this one; it's just too obscure. That being said, there could potentially be new content in Pikmin 3 Deluxe, but for now, I don't think this would be too interesting. 1337Walrus (talk) 06:44, December 1, 2020 (EST)

How do you think Pikmin DLC has been handled?[edit]

  • ...

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) A friend of mine suggested this. This could be used to gauge if people think Pikmin 3's DLC is greedy, quite generous with its pricing, a bit weird with its free stage offers, etc. But we'll have to think about the options carefully. — {EspyoT} 18:29, 10 April 2017 (EDT)
  2. Interested what people think. Untitled-1 (talk) 16:19, 28 April 2017 (EDT)
  3. Sounds interesting. --Nvortex (talk) 15:00, 22 July 2017 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

  1. Now that the DLC has been added to Pikmin 3 Deluxe, this question is a bit outdated, and isn't worth asking anymore. — Botanist(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)

Comments[edit]

What do you feel about Pikmin's time limit?[edit]

  • It's very stressful and short.
  • It's not stressful, but it is short.
  • It's stressful, but fair.
  • It's nothing special.
  • It's too forgiving.

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) On the Pikmin Discord, we were discussing why some people find the time limit to be "hard". It occurred to me that we can just ask the community at large. With these options, I'm mostly trying to gauge the stress factor and the time constraint's fairness. We can probably add more options to further gauge what players find "hard". — {EspyoT} 10:35, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
  2. I think this is a good poll idea because it requires some thought and answers a useful question. Pikmin's time limit is controversial, and I think a poll like this would be interesting for that reason. — Botanist(talk) 19:43, November 10, 2020 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

  1. The game may be over a decade old, but as players like myself learn how to play more efficiently, they would see their opinions on the game's difficulty and time limit change (for example, I struggled to make it to the Forest Navel as a kid, but now my best run in the game is 12 days.) I wouldn't think this poll could achieve any concrete entries as many who have played Pikmin 1 in the past would probably find it much easier or even harder today. |\|TechnoMan|/| (talk) 21:13, 18 July 2017 (CDT)

Comments[edit]

  • There's a lot of options, I'm not sure we really need that many for this question. "It's nothing special" especially seems unnecessary. — Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)

What is your favorite Hey! Pikmin boss?[edit]

  • Bulborb

Have you gotten all Platinum in Pikmin 3's Mission Mode?[edit]

  • Yes!
  • No, but I'm still trying
  • No, and I'm not going to try

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It'd be a nice way to gauge how hardcore players are for Mission Mode. — {EspyoT} 10:27, 1 April 2018 (EDT)
  2. I agree. This sounds like a good poll. --Ben (talk) 00:16, November 18, 2019 (EST)
  3. Relevant — Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

  1. I think this question would have too many cases where people would be unsure (1-player or 2-player? Original or Deluxe?), and so it probably wouldn't get very interesting results. — Botanist(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)

  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. — Botanist(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)

What do you feel about glitches in the series?[edit]

  • I reproduce them a lot!
  • I'm always trying to find them!
  • I like seeing them be found and investigated.
  • I think they're dangerous.
  • I don't know of almost any glitch.

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) A niche topic, but with broad enough answers that could poll all audiences. I definitely recommend everyone suggests better answers, though. — {EspyoT} 16:10, April 2, 2019 (EDT)

What has been your favorite April Fool's Day joke so far?[edit]

  • (...)

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) We've had a few jokes so far, and they're all very varied. We could check and see which one people liked the most. To avoid bias with any recent joke, we should only publish this poll a few months after the latest AFD joke, whenever we decide to post it. — {EspyoT} 11:07, April 7, 2019 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

  1. This poll idea is quite limited in its scope to people who actively use Pikipedia and have done so for years. Many people would just look at the website to check area details or something like that, and a poll about annual events wouldn't be that useful for those people. — Botanist(talk) 19:43, November 10, 2020 (EST)
  2. Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)

Comments[edit]

  • I like this idea. This is the first time (as I know of) that the poll has been based off the wiki, and not the games, which does add more variety. It may even help us make better April Fool's jokes by reflecting back on old ones. My only opposition is I think only editors and frequent readers of the wiki (which is pretty hard to measure) will probably vote or understand what it even is. However, it might encourage readers to actually read April Fool's articles, and then they might vote. Still, I'm not sure if readers will care enough to read all the articles at once just to vote. Regardless, I would like this happen and it would be fun to see! &mdash CrazyCow 21:03, 7 April 2019 (EDT)
    • Well, only the avid readers will even pay attention to the poll in the first place, I'd say. For the others, I hope it sparks their curiosity enough to go check them out. — {EspyoT} 15:57, April 8, 2019 (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

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
  • 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)

What do you think happened to Pikmin 4?[edit]

  • It's still in development.
  • It's cancelled.
  • It was Hey! Pikmin.
  • It never existed in the first place.

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) In my opinion, an interesting poll, however, the "It never existed in the first place" option may not be a good option for the poll, as it is very unlikely. --Ben (talk) 12:19, January 11, 2020 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

  1. A fine question, but I think its nothing more than mindless speculation. Nothing too interesting could come from asking this. — Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)

Comments[edit]

  • Hm, it might be a bit controversial... — {EspyoT} 10:04, January 12, 2020 (EST)
    • What exactly is controversial about it? --Ben (talk) 11:19, February 2, 2020 (EST)
      • We know from some places that Miyamoto has said the game is coming. But then nothing ever happened. A lot of fans are upset about this, and we'd just be reminding them. Plus, giving them a way in which to passive-aggressively point out Miyamoto lied, and how he lied, isn't exactly the healthiest thing we could do in this community. We should patiently and impartially wait for updates on Pikmin 4 to come, and not try to stoke any flames. — {EspyoT} 15:53, February 4, 2020 (EST)
        • So should this poll be rejected? --Ben (talk) 17:05, February 16, 2020 (EST)
          • We could wait for others's feedback. — {EspyoT} 04:15, February 17, 2020 (EST)

What convinced you to buy Pikmin 3 Deluxe?[edit]

  • I've never played the original
  • Nostalgia
  • The extra content

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Pretty self-explanatory. — {EspyoT} 13:05, October 1, 2020 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

  1. "Nostalgia" seems like an unlikely answer, and the lack of "I didn't purchase it" leaves out a large portion of people. — Bossclips(talk) 13:14, November 30, 2020 (EST)
  2. This would need so many options to cover most cases, so it wouldn't be very interesting. — Botanist(talk) 17:38, December 21, 2020 (EST)
