The Puffstalk (ボケエリンギ?, lit.: "Stupid King Trumpet Mushroom") is a rare, mushroom-like enemy found in Hey! Pikmin. It looks like a smaller relative to the Puffstool, and harmlessly dwells within holes in walls. Out of the two that appear in the whole game, one drops the Constitution Gate while the other drops the Tangerine Paste when defeated.

The Puffstalk is a docile creature that can be found within holes in walls. It has no attacks, and its own means of defense is to disappear and reappear between various nearby holes.



The Puffstalk is quick, but it only has so many holes it can pop out of. It is fairly predictable in its patterns, and can be taken out by simply hitting it with Pikmin whenever it reveals itself.

A mysterious creature that likes to pop out of its next and then go right back in. It's bent on collecting energy-rich objects, but then, so am I, hmm?
