Couldn't you petrify it during the delay, so it won't move? Learner

It kinda moos when it dies... XD -random creepy guy

New tactic[edit]

I'm not going to add it to the article, I don't have time to do it properly. But instead of splitting your captains, you can simply have them both together, along with your entire pikmin army, and switch between them repeatedly.

If you're Olimar, switch to the President then straight back to Olimar again. The Bloyster will change tail colour to chase the president - which takes about 5 seconds - and then spend ANOTHER 5 seconds changing back to Olimar-colour. Once your 10 seconds is up, switch back and forth again to gain another 10 seconds. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 13:29, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Wouldn't you then have to run to the other side though to reach its tail? —Jimbo Jambo
My thoughts exactly. This is possible, but annoying and time consuming. I wouldn't prefer using this one.--Prezintenden
Yes, but only once. Once you're at its tail, it won't turn round again. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 14:50, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I get it; similar, in a way, to reaching the back of the Empress Bulblax in Frontier Cavern. You make your way to the rear in short steps, then you're fine once there if you know when to switch Captains again. GP 16:24, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm completely unaware of whatever tactic you may be referring to. Sorry. XD JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:37, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it was a bad comparison, and not really a tactic. I meant when you come across that Empress Bulblax, you split the Captains and give one the Pikmin, then keep switching, making your way to the head end with one, and killing Bulborb Larvae when needed with the other.

Oh, I suppose. That's more like the tactics that are down now, than it is like mine. With mine the captains stay together. Oh, and I attacked the bum-end of Miss Bulblax. :) JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:52, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Ah, yes, I see now what you meant. Also, I run to the Empress, defeating all the larvae on the way, then I leave one captain near the rear of the Empress. The larvae are rather harmless for the pilots, so I just leave the corresponding one there until I'm at the front of the mother with the other captain.--Prezintenden 19:13, 29 April 2008 (UTC)


What do you do if only one captain can battle? The one and only,Artwork of three Dwarf Orange Bulborbs.Peanut64.

Nevermind. Apparently, you just go suicide with your Pikmin and toss Purples at it's torso. The one and only,Artwork of three Dwarf Orange Bulborbs.Peanut64.
