Pikmin 3 ideas
New Pikmin: Note, thease are ideas for new pikmin types. I believe in Pikmin 3 there will only be around 2-3 new types.Green: Have tails, which resemble a blade of grass, they can make plants, such as Pellet Possies or Nectar Weed grow faster or regrow. You need a certain number to make them grow (.e.g. 5 for a Pellet Posy). They have an Onion, and their respective Candypop bud is the Emearald Candypop bud. Their onion, along with the red, yellow and blue onions make a diamond like shape. got this idea from Pikmin 1, in where I got annoyed how long it took pellet posies to grow.
Orange: Have no facial appearence, except for eyes. They are immune to explosions due to a waxy substance on their skin so this gives them a slight glow. They can also carry bomb rocks. They do not have an onion, and cannot be stored on the ship, so the only way to get them is by altering a Pikmin's DNA, via the Sunset Glow candypop bud. Their deaths at sunset do not count against the overall amount and cannot leave caves when found underground. I got this idea from Pikmin 2, because I hated how yellow pikmin lost their ability to carry bomb rocks and how a single explosion from a bomb rock could kill as much as 20 pikmin!
Pink: Have butterfly-like wings. They can fly short distances when thrown and have no strenghts or weaknesses. They don't have an Onion, so are stored in the Ship, and are gotten from Rose Candypop buds. I got this idea from my cousin's (who's a girl) pink butterfly plush, which, ironically, looks like a pikmin.
Cyan: Have clear, glass like leaves/buds/flowers. Their l/b/f's act as miniature fans, allowing them to blow away mist, steam or fog. However, depending on the thickness depends on the amount of pikmin needed to defog an area. Steam is found on hot water, which burns and drowns pikmin at the same time. They have onions however, they land in areas away from the landing site. I based this idea of User:Snakeboss14's idea, oh be sure to go there for his great pikmin 3 ideas as well!
Bearmin: As the name implies they are bulbear varients of pikmin. Like bulbmin, they have immunity over fire, water, gas and electricity, and can defog areas as well. Only found underground and re-join with any other Adult Bulbmin they see, so aren't realiable when you're low on numbers. You can only have up to 15 bearmin. I doodled a picture of a bulbear fused with a pikmin in my scrapbook and it became my inspiration.
New enemies: Written in the form of Olimar's Notes from Pikmin 2.
Pellet Weed Family
The Peeking Pelleton is part of a group of creatures, who, through evolution, 'mimic' the appearence of plants and creatures. Take the Peeking Pelleton for example. By collapsing their DNA structre, their appearence changes to that of their closest relative, the Pellet Posy. Strangely, during this process, their stem is a light green colour and is without a distinctive pellet, leading some scientists to believe that this is what a pellet posy would look like without it's nectar crystalizing genes.
Although originally classified as a bulborb, recent field research has proven that's its internal structre is more similar to that of the bulblax. Though small compared to it's distant cousin, the Emperor Bulblax, it is surprisingly heavy, weighing at around twice it's weight. Most of it's overall body mass is comprised of body fat, however this is only due to it living in cold climates, as it has no other way of keeping itself warm.
As a brand new species, research on the Pellet Flower is slow, though minimal details have been supplied. By utilizing the unique properties of Green Pikmin, this peplexing bud can produce large amounts of Pellets. It is under debate whether or not the Pellet Flower is of the Pellet Weed, or the Candypop Bud families. Due it possessing the nectar cyrastalizing gene, which is unique to the Pellet weed family, yet, its apperence, both internally and externally matches that of the candypop bud. More research of this strange plant is still awaiting approval.
Carnivorous Candypop Bud
Candypop Bud Family
As a member of the candypop bud family, this large bud plays a part in the life cycle of the pikmin species. However, instead of altering a Pikmin's DNA, it eats them! It's vibrant colours are alluring; but it can be distinguished from real Candypop's buy it's purple center and rectangular petals. Research has shown that heavier objects seem to be able to resist being eaten, with the bud burying itself due to the pressure. Along with Carnivorous, it is commonly refered as the 'Dead-end Candypop Bud', because it symbolises the end of a pikmin's life.
Dwarf Blue Bulborb
Grub-dog FamilyA recent edition to the grub-dog family. However it's that very reason that only dwarfs of thease species have been discovered, a mature specimen has yet to be accounted for. This species of the Bulborb can actually eat at a rapid pace, rivalling that of mature Bulborbs! This has caused many scientists to believe that what we have is not a Dwarf Blue Bulborb but a Adult Blue Bulborb.
Grub-dog FamilyThis highly sensitive bulborb was actually seen a while back, yet up until now its exsistence hasn't been confirmed. The Yellow bulborb is for now one of the only Grub-dogs to be soley vegitarian, thus, it's main diet consists of plants and pellets. The reason for it's vegitarian habits is a hot debate along the science comitee.
